    Just watched Dirty Mary Crazy Larry again

    Roddy McDowell was not credited but the bridge operator was

    You only saw a few seconds of him; so why credit him & not Roddy?

    Re: Roddy McDowell

    I surfed into this forum from somewhere else and had to register when I saw a topic about Roddy, who is one of my two favourite actors!

    He was the first actor who I noticed could act, and that was back when he was in the TV series of Planet of the Apes. Despite the fact that he was wearing a mask, he somehow managed to portray a ton of emotions just by tilting his head. I think the next thing I saw him in was the TV series Tales of the Gold Monkey and he frequently stole the scene even as a secondary character. Again, he could show so much emotion with a tilt of the head and/or a nod.

    As others have said above, he was also awesome in The Legend of Hell House. All in all, an amazing and much under-appreciated actor.

    Enjoy Roddy performance in everything he did. Specially in the rather scary Legend Of Hell House alongside fellow American Pamel Franklin.
    This is the English pile where Legend was made. Blenheim Palace in Ozfordshire.

    I saw his performance in the pilot episode called The Cemetery. This is from the series called Night Gallery, hosted by Rod Stirling. It was fantastic acting.
    Also, saw him recently in an episode from Alfred Hitchcock's Hour. Cannot recall the name of the episode, but Roddy McDowell steals a large amout of money aided by his girlfriend and hide the cash. He appears to slap his girlfriend quite willingly in the film!

    He was the villain in a Columbo episode called "Short Fuse". Very good.

    I too enjoyed Roddy's work in Legend Of Hell House. He made several other things around that time when he returned to his birthplace. Was also in the Killing Bottle segment of Journey To the Unknown.
