A sickeningly underrated British actor, best known for his roles as Mick Travis in "If..." and as Alex in "A Clockwork Orange". Although he was popular throughout the seventies and some of the eighties, starring in "O Lucky Man!", "Royal Flash!", "Caligula", "Time After Time", and "Cat People", among others, he aged rather badly and stopped getting good parts. Of his giant filmography, consisting of more than 100 films, less than half have been released worldwide - but he will always be remembered as one of the most fascinating, charismatic and irresistible actors in history.
A friend of mine just watched A Clockwork Orange and is convinced that Malcolm McDowell has the most beautiful electric blue eyes in the world.
