Cliff Robertson, Oscar-Winning Rebel, Dies at 88

New York Times Reports:
Cliff Robertson, the ruggedly handsome actor who won an Oscar for “Charly” but found himself frozen out of jobs for almost four years after he exposed a prominent Hollywood studio boss as a forger and embezzler, died Saturday on Long Island. He was 88 and lived in Water Mill, N.Y.

A son-in-law, Donald Saunders, said Mr. Robertson died at Stony Brook University Medical Center a day after his birthday.

The story is too old to be commented.

I guess his most memorable of late was Peter Parker's uncle in Spiderman with Toby Mcguire. He really hadn't done much in his older years but he was a wonderful actor.
