    Thanks for sharing – many people haven’t seen “Crimes & Misdemeanors” which is a film where he really shows his ability to command the screen – and he was a generous, warm person as well in real life

      Pleasure. I didn’t know that about him being lovely to boot but it doesn’t surprise. The true greats often are.

        Yes, longevity int he business usually comes to those who handle their fame well – I have also met several who didn’t at all, and they fade away because as their stardom wanes, those who they have abused never want to work with them again

          Very true. I’ll reveal in my memoirs which actors and actresses I would never want to work with again!

            Yes, I have a list of people I’ve interacted with as well – there are some who were amazing – and some atrocious! Let the memoirs begin!

  3. I was really sad to hear that Martin Landau had passed away. He was both really great and really prolific. I think the first thing I ever saw him in was an episode of The Outer Limits where he plays a telepathic mutant from a post-apocalyptic future who travels back in time in an attempt to prevent the war that devastated Earth. He also appeared on a Twilight Zone episode.

    I fondly remember Landau from his starring roles on Mission Impossible and Space 1999, and his appearances in numerous movies, including North By Northwest, Ed Wood and The X-Files. Later in life he had a recurring role on Without A Trace playing Anthony LaPaglia’s father. I’m sure I’m forgetting some other great roles. Landau will definitely be missed.

      My first awareness of him was Mission Impossible, not realising I’d seen him in North by Northwest! He was magnificent. I’d forgotten about Without a Trace which we used to watch in Crete (alongside endless CSIs and NCISs). Loved him in Ed Wood. Sad but at 89 it’s pretty good innings. Thanks for commenting, Ben. Hope you and Michelle are well.

    Mission Impossible was a must see (Tom Cruise? Pah!) every week.

    A lovely person who will be missed. I don’t thin it’s fair to age…we should just get to a certain age and leave, no need to have our bodies ravaged by years…no declines…that’s cruel and unacceptable to me. It really is.
