He was in so many things, especially when I was growing up, that seeing him was like seeing an old family friend when he would pop up in things in later years. I'm going to miss him. I think its significant that he had a successful career that spanned decades and no one every had anything bad to say about him. A lot of performers could take a lesson from that.
I think my favorite role was in Cannonball Run
