And that, he said, included "The Calne Mutiny" which he admits "changed the whole track of my career." As Van tells it: "You're only as good as what comes out of your mouth. Until then I was mostly a hey-hey boy. Maybe .it was because I wasn't ready for the good parts. But ever since 'Caine', I've had roles with things to say. That's what counts." There's been only one blusher, says Van, In his last six flickers. He played a western hero in "The Siege at Red River" and he's still chuckling: ' ·I was the fnttest cowboy I've ever seen. I looked like Jack Oakie.
