He was a good Richelieu in both the 4 and 3 Musketeers;
He was a believable cowboy in Will Penny (points taken away from the movie for Lee Majors);
He could hold his own against Lawrence Olivier, who played the Mahdi, in Khartoum;
Good as the title character in The War Lord;
He was pretty good in Touch of Evil, too bad the movie sucks so bad;
Actually good all the way through in Major Dundee (again title character); and,
The chariot race is still one of the best things on film from Ben-Hur.
Also, even beginning to show the Alzheimers which may have killed him, he elegantly revealed in Bowling For Columbine Michael Moore to be the lying, manipulative, little (figuratively) backbiter he is.
