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. Promote this thread!

(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 (edited by AWArulz on 11.9.11 1319)

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.
