Mr. Cellophane

In a location adjacent to a place in a city of some significance, what comes out of my head is plastered on the walls of this blog.

Cliff Robertson (1923-2011)

John F. Kennedy in PT-109. His Oscar win for the "Flowers for Algernon" adaptation Charly. The Jimmy Stewart role in Brian De Palma's Vertigo remake, Obsession. The Fundamentalist villain in Malone. The President in Escape from L.A.. Robertson had quite the career prior to Uncle Ben in the Spider-Man trilogy (which he imbued with quiet dignity).

He will be missed.
