Rupert Campbell-Black in Riders

This film starts out with a naked Marcus which sets the tone for the rest of the film. It's very glitzy, very OTT, with Marcus playing a totally different character to his Hazard/Ghost roles. This time he's the cad of the film, playing the womanising, selfish Rupert Campbell-Black whose prowess in the bedroom makes almost as much news as his skill in the showjumping arena. His co-star (and rival in the film) Michael Praed as Jake is a perfect foil for Marcus' Rupert, being as different as could be imagined. Personally I think there's too much sex shown on the screen, but the rest of the film I enjoyed. The horses were wonderful too!

"Riders" was my introduction to both Marcus and to author Jilly Cooper. I instantly fell in love with both. Marcus did an excellent job of playing Rupert and part of that was due to ideosynchroses of Rupert that he brought to the screen.

I agree that there was a great deal of sex o?n the screen but considering the book the screenplay was based o?n and considering the character of Rupert Campbell-Black, it was necessary. Otherwise the character would have been changed too much. Besides, didn't you enjoy seeing Marcus naked. I did.

Not having read the book I didn't know how much sex was involved, but I still think there's a way of doing sex scenes without being in your face. Just my view. wink (Gosh that probably makes me sound a total prude, but I'm not! Far from it!!!

As to seeing Marcus naked, well, he is in the Jonathan Creek episode as well playing a naturist where his modesty if preserved by a strategically-placed cup and saucer! cool I love the humour of the JC episode.
