Does anybody here care to discuss?
I used to like watching Space 1999 when I was an infant and that's when I first became aware of Martin Landau. I didn't see much of him anywhere until many years later when he was in the excellent Woody Allen film Crimes and Misdemeanours when I realised just how good an actor he was. A totally brilliant performance. He will be missed.
I started a re-watch earlier this year and keep planning to finish it. I loved the show as a kid, sad news.
I did see Space: 1999 but it was as the disguise expert in Mission: Impossible that I think of him first. The character name Rollin Hand was based on his own name. He was married to Barbara Bain who co-starred in both shows.
Martin Landau in the fairly recent movie Remember.
I watched "Black Sun" from SPACE:1999 the other day. It seemed appropriate.
I did get the Network DVD sets of it for £12 in their Summer sale last year and I'll sit down with them. I encountered Catherine Schell last year and have a signed copy of her autobiography. I've got most of the ITC shows on disc going back to the 1950s. Spanning the 1950s to the mid-1960s, Peter Graves starred in Fury, Whiplash and Court Martial for ITC. Steven Hill also guest starred in particularly downbeat episode of ITC's Espionage with Ingrid Thulin.
There is a comment from her here:
Sad news. I remember Martin Landau was in one of my favorite movies "Cleopatra" (1963). I also saw him in a TV movie called the Fall of the House of Usher.
My condolances goes out to both of their families and friends. A special thought also goes out to Landau's daughter Juliet who I just love as Drusilla on Buffy & Angel!
Whiplash was filmed in Australia which was a really big deal at the time. Peter Graves returned for the Mission: Impossible revival during the writers' strike of the 80s. Nowadays it's fairly commonplace for major movies to shoot here.
I was today watching an approximately 45 minute interview with him from 1994, where he talked about choosing to not play Spock in Star Trek, Rollin Hand, John Koenig and other parts. And interviews conducted with him while he was doing Space:1999.
Annette Andre, Grant Taylor and Reg Lye all guested on Whiplash in Australia and all came out to work in England and all appeared in The Saint: The Loving Brothers. Annette Andre writes in her memoirs that she lost her virginity to Peter Graves.
