In the words of the late, great Rod (Twilight Zone) Serling: ‘Submitted for your approval….‘
Whilst some fans are aware that Nicholas Hammond, star of CBS’s 1970s live action Amazing Spider-Man series turned in a very decent performance as director/actor Sam Wanamaker in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, are there any other interesting Tarantino connections with the early onscreen stars of Marvel?
Strangely enough, Peter Hooten, the star of 1978’s Dr Strange TV movie (CBS again) was also a co-star in 1978’s version of Inglorious Bastards, an Italian WWII actioner (‘Macaroni Combat‘), whose title Tarantino of course purloined years later.

And lastly, Eric Kramer, who starred as Thor in 1988’s Return of The Incredible Hulk made an appearance as the thuggish ‘Boris’ in 1992’s Tarantino-penned True Romance.
Coincidence? Yes. Undoubtedly. But fun to contemplate nonetheless.
