That may be because it was awful.

When I was a teenager I thought he and Milton Berle were the same person.


You are not the only one to see that resemblance *

...is the kind of hero that you hope you run into, and the one you aspire to be.


He was superb in Crimes and Misdemeanors

And he was married to Barbara Bain. They were together on Mission Impossible.

Crimes and Misdemeanors, along with Match Point, are among Woody's masterpieces. They make an interesting trio with Irrational Man, a minor work IMHO, but a slight stepping back from the moral abyss expressed in the first two. I suppose Woody named Irrational Man after William Barret's classic study of Existentialism, a book of enormous personal importance from my wastrel years at ND.


Also James Mason's creepy henchman in North by Northwest *

Ed Wood as well. I believe he won best supporting actor
by JACC1203  (2017-07-16 22:14:39)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

for his role as Bela Lugosi in that film.

Of all the movies Tim Burton has made, Ed Wood might be his best work (or at least his most underrated)


Landau got an Oscar for "Tucker: The Man and His Dream" too.
