Ed Wood is still Tim Burtons best movie.  Great oscar winning performance as Bella Lugosi.  RIP

RIP :rose:

I remember watching him in Space 1999 and Mission Impossible. He also did a great job in the second X-Files movie.

RIP Martin.

I particularly enjoyed his work in Space 1999, North By Northwest, Mission Impossible, Columbo and many other roles.

It's a sad loss.

RIP.

I absolutely loved him in Ed Wood. All the praise is legit, IMHO.

He also was very good in Crimes and Misdemeanors. And Tucker.
A great actor.

He was a good actor.  The two things I remember about him are Mission: Impossible and being married to Barbara Bain.

I own the Space 1999 complete series. I remember, as a child, waiting in front of the TV set to watch another episode every Sunday night. At the time, I didn't notice Martin's overacting on that show, but now I still enjoy looking at that science fiction gem. RIP. :rose:
