Sad news. Cliff Robertson has died at 88. (hollywoodreporter.com)

He was a prolific actor and a Best Actor Oscar winner for Charly. Younger audiences know him best as Uncle Ben to Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man. I liked him even more as Shame in the 1960's Batman TV series.

That is sad, I thought he did a lot with little as Uncle Ben. RIP Cliff.

Actually, it was "PT 109". And The President in "Escape from LA"

PT109. Yep. (updated - seems JFK picked him himself for the role)

Loved that movie, and my favorite roles by Robertson:

Nice little role in Midway
He played Cole Younger in the Great Northfield Minnesota Raid. It's on Netflix now. Watch it.

The Devil's Brigade - as the sane Canadian alongside a crazy Bill Holden.

Nice Career, good guy, it seems too. He was a plane nut, I understand

Old people like me remember hi as JFK and in the Devil's Brigade. Seemed like a genuinely nice guy. The worst part about deaths like this (stars of our youth) is reminding people like AWA and myself just how old we are getting.
