Ahhh loved him in Mission Impossible, and sorry to say Leonard I preferred him as Rollin Hand to Paris. But thought it was great when he got the main role in Space 1999 both roles he played opposite his then wife Barbara Bain. I seem to think I saw or read they were in a circus series (guest start could have been Circus Boy?).
Martin was in one of my top 5 films North by Northwest as Leonard who I think there was a suggestion that his character and James Masons/Phillip could be in some relationship.
The last thing I saw him in was The Majestic which I don't normally like Jim Carrey films but I enjoyed it and Martin being in it made a lot better for me.
Yes Alfred got away with a few things, the train in the tunnel an other.He was excellent in 'North by Northwest'. He managed to subtly convey Hitchcock's intention of Leonard being a jealous queen, when such things were verboten in Hollywood.
The most overt hint was that line about his "woman's intuition" which seemed to slip by the censors for some reason.
That's one of my top 10 TV series and of all the story's his (one of two in the series) performance in The Man Who Was Never Born adds greatly to the enjoyment of that episodes story and made it my favorite of the whole series.RIP Martin Landau.

Another good one gone and one of my favourite performers. A truly gifted actor whose talents seemed to be utilised best at the beginning of his career and toward the end with a fallow middle period.
Accordingly, as a jobbing actor he divided himself equally between films and television, doing the usual guest star rounds of popular shows of the day such as 'The Twilight Zone', 'Bonanza', 'The Outer Limits', 'The Alfred Hitchcock Hour', etc, while simultaneously appearing in big budget cinema entries like 'North By Northwest' (thoroughly excellent as the creepy Leonard), 'Cleopatra' and 'The Greatest Story Ever Told'.raise his profile and put him in the spotlight.
I do I have season 1 and 2 on double sided DVD R1 and season 2 on single side R2 as some of my R1 dont play right.Yes, 'The Man Who Was Never Born' is one of my favourites as well.
I wish they'd release the '60s 'Outer Limits' on Blu Ray. I'd love to see it get the same treatment as 'The Twilight Zone' did in HD.
