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.

The Senate confirmed John Kenneth Bush for a lifetime seat on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday, over protests from Democrats who said he wasn’t fit to be a federal judge. The Senate voted 51-47 to put him on the federal bench despite criticism from Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee of Mr. Bush for having made controversial writings, where in one particular blog, he equated the Supreme Court’s legal rulings on slavery and abortion. Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, and Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Michigan Democrat, did not vote. The Judiciary Committee moved Mr. Bush’s confirmation

Astronaut Chris Hadfield has previously said ´there´s a bit of an Alice in Wonderland feel to [The ISS]´, because it can be difficult to orientate yourself on the space station. Now, fans of the International Space Station can take a dizzying virtual tour of all 15 of its modules using Google Street View to experience it for themselves.

(Video) - Concealed handgun permits in the United States soared by 1.83 million since last July, setting a record for the fourth consecutive year, according to an analysis released Thursday. (Snip) Concealed handgun permit holders are extremely law abiding, the analysis shows. The percent of permit holders who are charged or convicted of a felony has fallen: In 2015 it was 0.0123; in 2016 the percent was 0.0092 percent. “In Florida and Texas, permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at one-sixth of the rate at which police officers are convicted,” the CPRC said in a statement.

President Donald Trump hasn´t lived in New York City since January, but the government is still renting an office there for the purpose of protecting him. The Wall Street Journal published an exclusive story Tuesday night revealing that the government has been and is still paying more than $100,000 a month to use a roughly 3,500-square-foot space in Trump Tower as an outpost of the White House Military Office. Federal officials with the General Services Administration signed an 18-month lease with Trump Tower effective April 13, 2017. All in all, the agreement will cost $2.39 million.

David Blackmon probably won´t go down in history as a criminal mastermind, at least judging by the ridiculous reason for his arrest. The 32-year-old “self-proclaimed drug dealer” stunned police in Florida when he called 911 to report his cocaine had been stolen, along with some cash. He told Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office that “someone had entered his car while it was parked and stole $50 and about a quarter ounce of cocaine”. But the case then took an unusual turn: “The deputy however spotted cocaine still in [the same] spot,” said the sheriff´s office “He also found a crack pipe on the floorboard by the driver’s door and seat

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday that he did not plan to step down after a public rebuke by President Trump, saying he continued to carry out the president’s directives as the country’s top law enforcement officer. “I’m completely confident that we can continue to run the office in an effective way,” Mr. Sessions told reporters at the Justice Department. In an interview with The New York Times, the president said Wednesday that Mr. Sessions’ decision in March to recuse himself from the Russia investigation led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, a development that Mr. Trump said shouldn’t have happened.

The world´s biggest drugs marketplace on the dark web has been shut down, the US Justice Department has said. The marketplace AlphaBay had allowed hundreds of thousands of people to buy illegal drugs, said attorney general Jeff Sessions. AlphaBay mysteriously went offline earlier this month. It was widely considered the biggest online black market for drugs, estimated to host daily transactions totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars. When it was up, it sold drugs to more than 40,000 vendors that supplies more than 200,000 clients, law enforcement officials said. Dealers were able to buy drugs like fentanyl and heroin by using a

Abdullahi Yusuf, a 21-year-old from Minnesota´s Somali community, was sentenced last November by federal judge Michael Davis after he was arrested for plotting to join the terrorist organization. Yusuf then allegedly violated the terms of his 20-year supervised release by watching a documentary on ISIS fighters while at a halfway house.

The Russian lawyer who met with President Trump´s eldest son Donald Trump Jr. in New York last year said Tuesday that she is ready to testify before Congress about the meeting. "I´m ready to clarify the situation behind this mass hysteria – but only through lawyers or testifying in the Senate," Natalia Veselnitskaya said in an interview with Russia´s Kremlin-backed RT TV channel. Donald Trump Jr. met with Veselnitskaya in June 2016 after he was informed that she might have incriminating information about the Hillary Clinton, who was his father´s Democratic rival for the presidency at the time.

The Humiliation Of Jeff Sessions- There is something more than a little jarring in the ongoing humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In an ill-timed, ill-focused interview with the NYT, President Trump revisited his disdain for Sessions, his first, most-ardent and most-loyal supporter in the Senate. When supporting Trump was still considered career suicide, Sessions donned the red cap anyway. Maybe it will prove fatal for Sessions’ career, after all. The president has not made a secret of the fact that he blames Sessions for the scandal that now engulfs the Trump administration, claiming in

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, the 61-year-old TV host was asked to comment on a recent Pew survey that revealed 58 percent of Republicans and right-leaning Independents believe higher education has a negative effect on the country, a number that spiked significantly during President Trump’s rise to power.

The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe. The president told the New York Times on Wednesday that any digging into matters beyond Russia would be out of bounds. Trump’s businesses have involved Russians for years, making the boundaries fuzzy so Special Counsel Robert Mueller appears to be taking a wide-angle approach to his two-month-old probe. FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments

The threat of an expanding special counsel investigation into President Trump’s finances has rattled his conservative base with fears that the New York billionaire could be brought down by shady business deals — not collusion with Russia. Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller has widened the scope of the Russia investigation to include Mr. Trump’s business deals, according to a Bloomberg News report. The president had warned that such a move would cross a line. “Those transactions are in my view well beyond the mandate of the special counsel, are unrelated to the election of 2016 or any alleged collusion between the Trump

Today the White House touted the accomplishments of the administration in the first six months, and the list included: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented new charging guidelines to end catch-and-release policies.” Of course, the president’s not so focused on that part of Sessions’ record lately. As noted in the Jolt, Trump declared in an interview with the New York Times, “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else.” Tensions between a president and attorney general aren’t new

We just learned that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is in a battle against brain cancer. Yet, he´s not letting that stop him from still speaking his mind on foreign policy. Reports suggest that President Trump has ended a CIA program to arm and train anti-Assad rebels in Syria. The senator said that is unacceptable and used it to suggest the Trump administration has yet to offer a comprehensive plan on Syria. He also predicted that Russia will be huge fans of this development, since they want to see Bashar al-Assad remain in power.

Gore was asked why he made that prediction in the first film and if he has another prediction to make about climate change now 11 years later. “First of all, we’ve seen a lot of progress since the first movie came out.

If Sen. John McCain were to leave the Senate before his term ends in 2022, the governor would decide who fills the vacancy. McCain, who revealed Wednesday that he had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, made no indication he intends to step away. "Further consultations with Senator McCain´s Mayo Clinic care team will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate,” his office said in a statement. But were circumstances to require that McCain be replaced, that person would have to be a Republican, as McCain is, and would serve until the next general election, which happens every two years
