Reading Room SILVER SURFER: THE ULTIMATE COSMIC EXPERIENCE Part 3

...though he lost the battle against Galactus, the Silver Surfer's rebellion caused Galactus to spare the Earth so he could imprison the Surfer on it.
The tale now diverges totally from the story we've known since 1966...going off on previously-unseen pathways...
Needless to say...
As previously-mentioned, the Ultimate Cosmic Experience graphic novel was based on an unproduced screenplay for a Silver Surfer feature film with Olivia Newton-John as Ardina.
But who would've been the other major new character; Master of Guile?
I think I know...Vladek Sheybal!
Well-known for villain portrayals in From Russia with Love and the original Casino Royale, Sheybal had expanded to sympathetic roles like Dr. Jackson on UFO.
And this clip from the little-seen The Apple (produced in the late 1970s) shows he could carry a tune.
And doesn't the Master of Guile look like Sheybal?
