RIP Norman Lloyd


Recommended Posts

Saw his obituary in the local paper today.


Norman Lloyd, the actor, producer and director whose collaborations with Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin, Bertolt Brecht and Jean Renoir made him a legend — albeit an off-the-radar one — in Hollywood, died Tuesday morning. He was 106.

Lloyd died in his home in Los Angeles, his son, Michael, told The Hollywood Reporter.

Lloyd portrayed the villain who plummets from the Statue of Liberty at the climax of Hitchcock’s Saboteur (1942) and appeared as the crusty Dr. Daniel Auschlander on NBC’s acclaimed 1980s hospital drama St. Elsewhere.

Lloyd also could be seen in the films The Green Years (1946), Anthony Mann’s The Black Book (1949), Losey’s remake of M (1951), Robert Wise’s Audrey Rose (1977), Martin Scorsese’s The Age of Innocence (1993), The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000) and In Her Shoes (2005); in the 2000 made-for-TV movie Fail Safe; in recurring roles on the series Wiseguy, The Practice and Seven Days; and in guest spots on Kojak, Murder, She Wrote, Star Trek: The Next Generation and Modern Family.

He was the oldest living Star Trek related actor, and the first one to live to 106 years of age.  Marsha Hunt is now the oldest living Trek actor.

I hope his end was peaceful. He was a gifted man.

MeTV just showed one of the Alfred Hitchcock episodes in which he acted (he produced lots, and directed quite a few, as well) the other night. Very appropriate for FJ:

TCM had a memorial tribute to Norman in June.  They re-played the time that Ben Mankiewicz interviewed him at the TCM Classic Film Festival when Norman was already over 100.  Ben said that he met Norman for the first time on a TCM cruise while Norman was running laps on deck.  Norman was either 98 or 99 at the time.
