RIP Martin Landau (1928 - 2017)

Post by class316 » July 16th, 2017, 9:04 pm

Oscar-winning actor Martin Landau, most closely associated with scene-stealing character turns in such films as “North by Northwest,” “Crimes and Misdemeanors” and “Ed Wood” as well as the classic TV series “Mission: Impossible,” died Saturday in Los Angeles, according to his publicist. He had been hospitalized at UCLA where he experienced complications. He was 89.

The lanky, offbeat-looking veteran of the Actors Studio, for he which he was currently West Coast co-artistic director, had many ups and downs in his career. His greatest successes (three Oscar nominations and one win) came later in life when he returned to character roles like the one that first won him notice, as James Mason’s sinister gay henchman in Alfred Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest.”

It was great to get the chance to meet him at Chiller, and that he mostly had all his faculties.

Yep he was pushing 90 and was in seemingly great health, enough to fly to Chiller from LA.

Can't feel too bad for him as most of us will likely not be that fortunate.
