Oscar Winning Actor Martin Landau Has Died

Oscar winning actor Martin Landau died Saturday, July 15th of “unexpected complications” following a short hospitalization at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. He was 89. I remembered Landau as Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" and as Commander John Koenig in the sci-fi series "Space: 1999." He also appeared in other genre fare like "The Twilight Zone," "The Outer Limits," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "Without Warning," and others. Landau starred in the "Mission: Impossible" series from 1966 to 1969. He won an Oscar for his role as Bela Lugosi in "Ed Wood."
