Why they might be annoying:

    He overacted.
    He was typecast in cheap, cheesy horror films.
    He acted in an exploitation film for which barf bags were handed out at screenings.
    He appeared in the terrible 'Pink Panther' sequels made after the death of Peter Sellers.
    He wrote a strange novel about the inventor of the guillotine.
    In interviews, he constantly complained about being badly treated on horror-movie sets.

Why they might not be annoying:

    He wisely dropped the 'Charles Angelo Kuchacevich Schluderpacheru' and took 'Herbert Lom' as his professional name.
    He was equally comfortable in horror and comedy genres.
    He portrayed Van Helsing opposite Christopher Lee's famous Dracula.
