dammit dammit dammit
A fond goodnight to the late Robert Culp, who died at his Hollywood home earlier today.
Everyone is justly lauding his work on the groundbreaking TV series I Spy - Culp and co-lead Bill Cosby struck numerous blows on and off-camera for America's civil rights movement during the making of the show.
But your proprietor's fondness for Culp extends to many roles, chiefly that of amnesiac/would-be savior Trent in the Harlan Ellison-penned "Demon With A Glass Hand" episode of The Outer Limits. Last time I was in Los Angeles I was honored to stand upon the stairway from which Culp/Trent leaped in the story's climactic chase scene.
Thank you, Robert. Good night.
