That was over 49 years ago in 1972.
In 2014 he died aged 71, starring in 84 films in his career, 83 since Up the Front was released.
In Up the Front, I think Bob Hoskins looks:
Up the Front scores 3.3 out of 10 on The Movie Database.
Bob Hoskins' first acting role was as 'Recruiting Sergeant' in Up the Front, released in 1972 when he was 29.
