Oliver Reed vs. Shelley Winters: A Battle to Remember

Actors Oliver Reed and Shelley Winters are both screen legends, and both were known for being difficult on set. Here they are together on the Tonight Show in 1975. Whether it was a dreadful booking mistake or a stroke of genius we will likely never know, but the results speak for themselves.

Reed, always a memorable screen presence, does little to endear himself to the audience - his opinions on gender equality seem downright prehistoric - and Winters steps forward with the perfect gesture for the win.
