The best movie he was in was Roman Holiday.

Head office needs to be bumped up to #3 maybe. Way better movie than Dreamscape.

"Disconnect" - Head Office

I had no idea how many I had seen til I saw your list.

On the opening day of the Longest Yard re-make. Coincidence? I think not.

Do you have Eddie Albert in a can?

"Longest Yard," by far.

Eddie: "SHOOT HIM!"
(Burt picks up football, does the finger twirl)
Guard: "Game ball."

Gimme them '70s flicks every.single.time.

I'm very disappointed that Beyond Witch Mountain isn't number one on your list. It's the original "misunderstood geek" movie.*

He also had a fairly major role in The Longest Day.

Arbor Day commercials.

The only thing that sticks in my mind is the awful "Green Acres."

This is one of those cases where you don't know someone is still alive until he dies.

You've had a pretty good life when you die, and they pull out a file photo of you with white hair, and it's a black-and-white picture from 40 years ago.

His most memorable performance (in my opinion) was the bohemian news photographer in Roman Holiday. His comic timing, acting opposite Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn was perfect. He was a MUCH under-rated actor... AND... Green Acres is a BRILLIANT comedy series. Problem is... it's SO clever, at times, it may just go over some peoples heads. Too bad... you don't know what you're missing.
