    Default Roddy McDowell

    Roddy McDowell is well known for playing Gayland in the Planet of the Apes

    He was also the supermarket manager in the 1974 movie Dirty Mary Crazy Larry but he was uncredited for his role in the movie

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    That would be "Galen"

    He was a child actor who became very successful in adulthood

    He was always very watchable. He was great as Peter Vincent in the Fright Night films and as the tortured medium in The Legend of Hell House.

    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.

    Roddy has a lovely voice; especially as Galen
