Edward Fox
Actor, Adventures of Robin Hood (1991)
A kamikaze cameo appearance. Shamelessly ham-acting his way through his one scene as Prince John, he adopts an astonishing vocal delivery which is one-third Edward VIII, one-third Vincent Price, and one-third Mr Spock from Star Trek. It was greeted with appreciative hoots of derision at the national press screening, and I can't recall a barmier performance since Nicol Williamson's Merlin in Excalibur.

Actor, A Month by the Lake (1995)
Redgrave looks handsome in an equine sort of way, but it doesn't help that the object of her affections, over-projecting like mad in a series of bizarre hats and unsuitable suits, looks less like an eligible bachelor than a sozzled TV racing correspondent competing for first prize in a gurning contest.

Actor, Prince Valiant (1997)
It would be kinder not to name anyone involved, but connoisseurs of ham-acting will not wish to miss Edward Fox exercising his eyebrows as King Arthur, or Joanna Lumley as Morgan Le Fay, in the eye make-up Dusty Springfield rejected.
