    I just think this guy was a cut rate Odd Job. They had done the "basically indestructible guy" before. They would go back to it with Jaws. I think they just failed to set this guy up enough to be believable as a juggernaut.

    The actor who played Odd Job, Harold Sakata, was a professional wrestler and brought significant combat sport experience to his fight scenes. Despite his shorter stature, he had a very aggressive, threatening presence which was credible. He sort of looked like a human pit bull. I would agree that the Hotel Assailant in OHMSS was a very poor man's Odd Job.

    There is a reason OddJob and Jaws are the legendary "indestructible henchmen".
