After a pretty hectic Sunday I sat down in front of the computer….and the very first website I looked at, informed me that Oscar® winning actor Martin Landau had passed away today. All my life, no matter how many movies Landau made…..he has always been….”the guy from North by Northwest”. That movie was one of my late dad’s all-time favorite movies. That has always given me a connection to Mr. Landau. His passing is a reminder of my dad’s passing. Luckily Eva Marie Saint is still around.
Another Landau memory I have involves Samuel L. Jackson. Back in 1994, I was blown away by Pulp Fiction. When it came time for the Oscars®….I was convinced Jackson was going to be the Best Supporting Actor winner. When they announced that Landau was the winner, here is what I remember yelling at the television. “They ripped off Jackson…this is a load of crap…those Academy idiot voters do not know what the hell they are doing!” Well…..I admit…..that I held a grudge for a few years…and refused to watch Landau in Ed Wood. After a few years, I finally watched Ed Wood. I quickly realized that Landau’s performance as Bela Lugosi was sensational. After the movie ended….I told myself….well I guess those Academy voters are not so dumb after all.
