Cliff Robertson as JFK in "PT 109"

I just loved Cliff Robertson as an actor as did my mother. He was so handsome and a gret performer as well. I didn't like the movie "Charly" as the ending was sad... but I still love Cliff as JFK in "PT 109"... I watch a newer film all the time called "JFK: Reckless Years" starring a young Patrick Dempsey as JFK. they are both really great in the same role...RK

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor Cliff Robertson, who won an Oscar playing a mentally disabled janitor in "Charly" and worked in movies ranging from "PT 109" to "Spider-Man 3," died in New York Saturday, the day after his 88th birthday.

Robertson's career spanned more than 60 years and included Hollywood movies, Broadway shows, television dramas and commercials. He also is remembered for his courage in exposing powerful Columbia studios chief David Begelman, who had forged his name on a $10,000 check in the late 1970s.

Begelman's misappropriation of studio money caused a scandal at the time that was dubbed "Hollywoodgate" and Robertson became a hero among some industry players by risking his career to expose Begelman. In fact, work dried up for several years before he forged a comeback.
