    For me it's a tie between S.O.B and Mother, Jugs & Speed. In S.O.B Larry has some really funny scenes including unwillingly being striped down to his undies and being absolutely mauled by a super keen girl in the kitchen and falling down a hole in the floor to the room below!

    In Mother, Jugs and Speed he plays a really sleazy and disgusting character who in the end goes off his head with drugs & alcohol and gets shot and killed.

    I've only seen Mr. Hagman's movie roles in Primary Colors, Harry and Tonto, Nixon and The Third Twin. I'd like to see more of his early work but I did like his portrayal as corrupt biological engineer Berrington Jones in The Third Twin. Why? Mr. Hagman always did such a great job playing characters with no moral or ethical centers and I always remembered his acting in that movie.

    I liked Larry in Primary Colours and thought his acting was very good in it and he should have been nominated for a Supporting Oscar award

    I also liked him in 1974 Stardust where he played a tough and kind of ruthless character not unsimilar to JR as David Essex manager

    So many of the other films his role is very small but those 2 are my favs.

    I'm not sure I've seen any of these, but I chose Mother, Jugs and Speed because of the cool title!

    I haven't seen all of the movies listed so I voted for Three's a Crowd because it's a funny, fun movie. There's another one he's in that's called Getting Away From It All, that one was funny too. They both sort of remind me of his Tony Nelson days rather than his JR Ewing days.

    I've seen this one too, I thought he'd have a bigger part when I started watching but then I got sucked into the story and it wasn't a waiting game for him to show up again.

    He didn't wear his toupee in that film or maybe it was made before he started wearing one.

    I can only recall seeing him in Nixon, Primary Colors, S.O.B., Superman and Nixon. His best performances were in Primary Colors and Nixon but my favourite film of his was Superman, although he only had a small role in it.

    If other TV shows are eligible, then I´d say "I Dream of Jeannie". He and Barbara Eden are perfect in this crazy sitcom! If not, then I´d go for "S.O.B.", though he plays a really minor role. I love this movie because of its sense of sarcasm and self-parody from everybody involved, especially Julie Andrews. I also find quite funny his cameo in the first "Superman"...

    He plays a character not unlike JR in the goofy comedy 'Up In The Cellar' from 1970. He's scheming, ruthless and comes out on top in the end. He even has wife Joan Collins committed to a sanatarium! The whole movie is on Dailymotion (in 2 parts) if anyone is curious.

    If we're just talking about movies that Larry just happened to be in then I guess I'd have to say Superman but if we're talking about movies he starred in ...
    I was thinking of that one as well. It's just a made-for-TV movie with not much to it but it's an enjoyable bit of fun.
