    I always admired Mr. Kirby as an actor. He had a unique style about him, and I was shocked to hear of his sudden, untimely death. I first saw him in a ’70’s film where he played a sailor, but for the life of me cannot remember the name of it. Rest in Peace Sir Bruno!

    I watched “Donnie Brasco” yesterday and I saw Bruno Kirby and I said, “One of the best actors.” I remember Bruno when he starred in the tv series, “The Super” in ’72. He played in many roles and he was always at his best. He’s definitely missed.
