633 Squadron was a good movie. Now I have to find a video of it.
Sir! You wound me to the core!
Shame on you, Shame!
A fine actor. Thanks for the memories, Mr Robertson. You shall be missed. RIP.
Bah! It’s easy when you have no other life...
I liked him in “The Devils Brigade” or what ever the name of the movie was.
Blows my mind to hear he was 88. He was in a wild-and-woolly early episode of “The Untouchables,” as a thug who gets plastic surgery. Quite memorable episode.
What are you trying to say?
He was the star of the very first episode of “The Outer Limits,” “The Galaxy Being.”
I remember the movie and that plywood Mosquito was one of the greatest WW-II warplanes.
PT 109 is playing on the Military Channel right now.
“J.W. Coop” (1971) was just on last week - a fine portrayal of a cowboy just out of prison making some money on the rodeo circuit. Cliff Robertson starred, directed and co-wrote it - Geraldine Page played his mom. Good movie.
I just thought you might enjoy that song on a nice Saturday night. :D (I don’t even know how to check post numbers!)
Forgot he was Shame on “Batman”.
Like this shot from “Obsession”
His leading lady looked stunning there.
I think you meant to send that to someone else.
That's putting it mildly. Robertson was blacklisted for blowing the whistle on producer David Begelman's accounting fraud, and he didn't work in the industry for several years.
