  1. I always thought he was in the McQueen mode...and he even goes out like McQueen, albeit with a longer life.

  3. I remember him as the monster in a wonderful TV version of "Frankenstein" from the early-to-mid 1970s. He was also Barbra Steisand's husband in "For Pete's Sake" and Jacqueline Bissett's live-in boyfriend back in the day when living in sin was still somewhat shocking.

  4. He had a god part in a nifty spy/mystery flick, THE GROUNDSTAR CONSPIRACY, with George pepard in an interesting "heavy" part.
