Almost every celebrity around today is a whiny liberal and interested in politics except for some decent exception, but we all remember the old Hollywood where we had real actors and good people!
One of them was Richard Anderson!
Too bad that this kind of folks can’t live forever!
He was tall, handsome actor with a decent attitude!
Anderson died at 91 of natural causes on late on Thursday, family spokesman Jonathan Taylor said.
He had decided to try acting after watching Gary Cooper movies, and at the screen test he performed a scene from Cooper’s The Cowboy and the Lady.
At MGM he played secondary roles in such movies as The Magnificent Yankee, ‘Across the Wide Missouri, Scaramouche, The Story of Three Loves,The Student Prince, Hit the Deck and Forbidden Planet.
The New Jersey native made his debut as the head of the top secret Office of Scientific Intelligence in the 1973 TV movie The Six Million Dollar Man: Wine, Women and War.
A second TV movie The Six Million Dollar Man: The Solid Gold Kidnapping followed before the concept went to series, premiering in 1974.
Anderson provided the famous introduction: ‘Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s first bionic man.’
In 1976, a spin-off The Bionic Woman debuted with Anderson playing the same role of Goldman.
That made him He was the first actor to portray the same character on two TV series running concurrently on two networks after the show moved to NBC from ABC, according to THR.com.
Anderson was also a staple in popular TV shows through the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
He had guest and recurring roles on such hits as Perry Mason, The Fugitive, Gunsmoke, Ironside and Dynasty.
On the big screen, he got his big break when he was cast by Stanley Kubrick in his anti-war classic Paths Of Glory, released in 1957.
He went on to star opposite Rock Hudson in John Frankenheimer’s 1966 sci-fi thriller Seconds.
He also played Joanne Woodward’s boyfriend in 1958’s Long Hot Summer.
Richard Norman Anderson was born in Long Branch, N.J., on Aug. 8, 1928. He later moved to Los Angeles, where he began appearing in high school plays.
After two years in the Army, he began studying at the Actors Laboratory in Los Angeles. Soon he was landing work in radio and summer stock productions.
Sorry that there is nothing in Hollywood that can step up and fill these shoes
All the old good actors are dead or dying and there is nothing left after they are all gone
Same in music. Very few singers are so good that they can fill the shoes of past dead and any old timers that are left.
He was a part of a great generation of Hollywood actors that represented the real American values! So for me, this is a really sad day!
