 Robert Shaw - Films as actor:
At the time Robert Shaw died of a heart attack in 1978, his status as a bona fide movie star was still in its infancy.
Shaw was a playwright, scenarist, and award-winning novelist, bringing a literate and literary sensibility to his screen acting.
His failed attempts at heroic stardom seem to indicate that Shaw's particular brand of blustery ferocity was best utilized in support of, or in opposition to, the protagonist of a film.

Robert Shaw gives the role a regal bearing (though his continental accent keeps drifting in) and a sense of dignity, depicting a man who ironically identifies more with the Indians than with the U.S. Army.
It is filled with good actors (and performances), who are intrinsically fascinating to watch, and it was also the first film to bring a modern political sensibilities to the story of the man's career -- that should come as no surprise, since the screenplay is the work of ex-Hollywood fllistees Bernard Gordon and Julian Halevy.
Robert Shaw gives a solid performance as General George Custer and beautifully creates another interpretation into the myth of the man. Shaw demonstrates none of the flamboyancy associated with Custer but instead concentrates on the virility and single-minded duty of his command.

The acting is absolutely superb: Robert Shaw's Pizarro weaves strength, doubt, lust for adventure and riches, and cunning combined with honesty and involuntary admiration for the Inca god-king he has taken prisoner.
It is a performance of such power and beauty as rarely has graced the screen, and the actor himself confessed that this was one of the roles he was most proud of.
Robert Shaw's performance as the world weary Pizarro is typically epic, with the conflict between the characters drive to achieve great wealth and power despite his humble origins, and his feelings of identification (and friendship) with the Inca King (his victim) Atahualpa powerfully portrayed.
