Farewell Robert Culp


Robert Culp passed a few weeks ago and I was reminded of the first time I saw him act. It was on a show called "The Outer Limits" and his performance on "The Demon with the Glass Hand" written by the great Harlan Ellison was one of the best the show ever ran. You catch the entire thing on YouTube...shot in a film noir style with very simple effects (love the low tech make-up on the aliens). The storyline has been compared to "Terminator" and in fact James Cameron gave Harlan Ellison a partial writing credit for his film.
Took awhile to do this sketch...Deb and I got a new puppy and did I forget how much work they are...very tired, but she sure is cute!

And let's not forget his performance in "The Architects of Fear" another Outer Limits classic.
One of my favorite TV guys. I liked him in everything right up to his gig as an in-law on "Everybody Loves Raymond.

Great job on this!
