Martin Landau, Actor Who Won
an Oscar for ‘Ed Wood,’ Dies at 89

New York Times, by Anita Gates

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/16/2017 10:30:49 PM

Martin Landau, the tall, intense, sometimes mischievously sinister actor best known for his role in the television series “Mission: Impossible” and his Oscar-winning portrayal of Bela Lugosi in the film “Ed Wood,” died Saturday in Los Angeles. He was 89. His death was confirmed by his publicist. Mr. Landau starred on the hit CBS suspense drama “Mission: Impossible” as Rollin Hand, a versatile covert-operations agent, from its debut in 1966 until 1969. After the show’s third season, he and Barbara Bain, his wife and co-star, left because of a contractual dispute. But the series had served its purpose.

Comments:
One of my favorite lines ever came from him in "Ed Wood". It wasn´t just what he said, but the way he delivered it. It truly always makes me laugh. Thanks, Martin. R.I.P.

From "Ed Wood", as Bella Lugosi: "Home? I have no home. Hunted... despised... living like an animal. The jungle is my home! But I will show the world that I can be its master. I shall perfect my own race of people... a race of atomic supermen that will conquer the world!"

Wow hard to believe he was 89. He was superb on MI until Desilu got greedy and wouldn´t give him a raise.Bain got mad and quit wrecking the show. I´ve seen every episode dozens of times now blocked by youtube.

My favorite movie is "Joseph"; Landau portrays Jacob/Israel, father of the Twelve Tribes. He is marvelous in this Ted Turner masterpiece. I watch it at least once a week. (I didn´t know that Turner produced religious themed movies, but this one goes beyond any label.)

Loved Mission Impossible! One of my early crushes as a young lad was Barbara Bain [not to mention Pat Priest and Agent 99 and Mary Ann on the island, but I digress].

OP, I believe I know exactly which line you are referring to; it has to do with his opinion of another gentleman´s fitness to, how shall I say, get a whiff of the situation?

Who can ever forget the brilliant theme song and the struck match? Landau was my hero; he was part of my childhood.
This very well-written article just goes to show you that when the NYTimes WANTS to, they can write a completely fair, objective, unbiased, factual piece which informs the reader about an event. Imagine that.

Mission Impossible was must see TV for me. Martin and his wife at the time were an integral part of the show. The whole cast was great. Peter Graves was so suave, barney, the tech genius was great. Willy was dumped from the show for a while, but fan outrage brought him back. The best MI shows were when Desilu Studios were in charge, the idiots at Paramount cheapen the show, but I still watched.

Washington - The Trump administration is making a fresh attempt at drafting an executive order on handling terrorism detainees, reviving a struggle to navigate legal and geopolitical obstacles to expand use of the Guantánamo Bay wartime prison, according to officials familiar with internal deliberations.

Most of President Donald Trump´s evangelical advisers have stood by him this week following much criticism over his response to violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, even as several CEOs left business advisory councils and members of his Committee on the Arts and Humanities have announced they are leaving the panel. In a first for his evangelical advisory council, New York City megachurch pastor A.R. Bernard announced Friday that he had stepped down from the unofficial board of evangelical advisers to Trump. Bernard sat at the president´s table on May 3, the night before the National Prayer Breakfast when Trump

(Video) - Isis has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Cambrils, Spain, in an official communique. It had already claimed the prior attack in Barcelona but put out an official statement later encompassing both atrocities, which police in Spain had been treating as linked. It came as Spanish authorities announced they believed the cell behind the twin attacks in Cambrils and La Rambla, Barcelona, had been "dismantled". Police had been investigating a cell of between eight and 12 people after a van smashed into pedestrians in the Catalan city on Thursday afternoon, killing 13 and injuring about 100.

Texas added 19,600 jobs in July, a middling number on its own, but it’s one that builds on just over a year straight of employment growth in the Lone Star State, data released Friday shows. Over the year, Texas added 293,400 jobs -- the most of any state -- followed by California, whose economy has grown by 276,400 jobs over the past year and Florida, which added 226,200. That all puts Texas’ annual employment growth at 2.4 percent. According to the Texas Workforce Commission, that’s twice the rate at this time a year ago.

Judge rejects bid by Polanski´s
1977 rape victim to end case

Los Angeles - A Los Angeles judge on Friday rejected a request by the woman who was raped by director Roman Polanski 40 years ago to have the criminal case against him dismissed. Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon ruled that Polanski remained a fugitive from justice and that the court could not dismiss a case "merely because it would be in the victim´s best interest." The ruling follows the first appearance in June in the case by Samantha Geimer, who was 13 years old when Polanski sexually assaulted her in Los Angeles in 1977. The director, who admitted raping Geimer, spent 42 days in pre-trial custody. He then fled

Barcelona, Spain - A cell of at least nine extremists meticulously plotted to combine vehicles and explosives in a direct hit on tourists, and managed to carry off most of their deadly plan, killing 14 people, authorities said Friday. Police in Spain and France pressed a manhunt for any remaining members of the group, which Islamic State claimed as its own. Only flawed bomb construction avoided a more devastating attack, authorities said after taking a closer look at a blast Wednesday evening in the town of Alcanar that was first written off as a household gas explosion. At least one person was killed and several injured in the home

A head rabbi at Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner´s New York City synagogue denounced President Trump´s response to the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, joining a chorus of political and religious leaders who say the president was wrong to blame "both sides" for the violence. In a letter Wednesday to his congregation, Rabbi Haskel Lookstein wrote that his community had been "consumed" by the "frightening message and fallout" from the hate-fueled mayhem that left one woman dead and others injured last weekend. "We are appalled by this resurgence of bigotry and antisemitism, and the renewed vigor of the

A federal judge ruled said Friday that President Trump’s personal tax returns could not be released through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), reports The Hill. The Electronic Privacy Information Center launched a lawsuit against the IRS earlier this year after the group requested the records, citing FOIA. The group sought Mr. Trump’s personal tax returns from 2010 to now, but the court said personal tax forms are confidential and can only be obtained if Mr. Trump gave his permission. The matter of Mr. Trump’s tax returns has been an issue since the campaign last year. Most presidential candidates have released them as part

President Donald Trump lashed back at Sen. Lindsey Graham in a tweet, calling out the South Carolinian for falsely portraying his remarks about racism and bigotry so that it seems he supports the KKK. Isn’t it bad enough that Trump has to correct the media for misstatements all the time? But he also has to clarify what those in own party are putting out that paint him with a black brush? Here’s what Grahamsaid, when asked about Trump’s response to Charlottesville: “[This president] took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members

The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear. The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning. Planned by whom? Time may tell. We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the "capital of the resistance" just after Trump´s inauguration. We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons. He

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one

The Republican Party´s collective response to Donald Trump´s handling of the Charlottesville race riots turned uglier on Friday. Mitt Romney, the failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts governor whom Trump has bashed relentlessly for more than two years, lashed out against him on Facebook for what he said was a hamfisted message during Tuesday´s press conference – and demanded a full-throated apology from the president.

A House Democrat introduced a resolution on Friday suggesting that President Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to help determine whether he is fit for office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s (D-Calif.) resolution specifically calls on Vice President Pence and Trump’s Cabinet members to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals” to “assist in their deliberations” invoking the 25th Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures. It posits that such an examination by doctors would “determine whether the president suffers from mental disorder or other injury that impairs his abilities and prevents him from discharging his Constitutional duties.
