A great actor indeed! I first saw him in "A Bridge Too Far" (1977) when he played Willi Bittrich against all the alllied movie stars.
He played many memorable roles in so many films (other than Hauptmann Stransky, that is!)...

Requiescat in pace


Respectful regards,

He was a great actor, as was his sister, Maria.

Sadly the news got rather lost in all the Philip S Hoffman flurry (whose work I'm less familiar with so can't comment). Seems we just lost Pa Walton also!
