The following memory is from an e-mail that I received from Dick Warlock. Mr. Warlock is an actor/stuntman who appeared in three Pleasence films: ESCAPE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, and HALLOWEEN II. In the latter, Mr. Warlock starred as Dr. Loomis' arch-nemesis "The Shape" (aka: Michael Myers). Very special thanks to Mr. Warlock for taking the time to pay tribute to "The Man With The Hypnotic Eye."
Hello, my name is Dick Warlock. I had the extreme pleasure of meeting and working with Mr. Donald Pleasence in "Escape From New York" and "Halloween II." I have fond memories of Donald as being the consummate performer and professional. He not only knew his part, but everyone elses as well. He had a dry sense of humor. He stayed pretty much to himself and was always ready when called to the set. His outstanding career speaks for itself. He is and will always be missed.
