I was a big fan of The Equalizer back in the 1980’s. Woodward’s heart condition led to an early cancellation of this award winning show. Woodward was nominated for Emmy’s and actually won The Goldens Globe in 1987 for his work in this role.
I saw Woodward in The Wicker Man. He’d changed a lot in the last twenty years. It was good to see him still working, because his heart attack in 1987 was very serious. He returned to The Equalize afterwords, but it wasn’t the same. He didn’t have the same physical approach to the role.
