Michael Rennie as the alien Klaatu in The Day The Earth Stood Still was perfect - logical, direct, and yet otherworldly. He spoke very clear English in the film yet expressed it in a slightly mysterious way. Great. His presence made that movie.
I also saw him in one or two episodes of Lost In Space. He always gave cool performances. He had a commanding air about him.
He was born in he county I now live in - Yorkshire, north England, and is buried just up the road in Harrogate.
