    Great actor!! One of the few who could make us laugh and feel the fear of his revenge. A beautiful man. I love him in ALL his roles. The one I cannot forget was his character Sergeant Otto Hansbach, on CHUKA, and his memorable, MASCULINE fist fight with Rod Taylor. They no longer come like that.
    Have a great After life, Ernie!!
