    That's too bad. I just read an interview he did in Filmfax magazine. I was never a big fan of his acting, but since it was in films like Brain From Planet Arous and Journey to the 7th Planet, I don't think it matters too much. My favorite film of his was Tarantula, and I also have a special fondness for The Mole People. From the interview I read, I don't think he was too thrilled that his name was always associated with these low budget horror & sci-fi films.
