Paul Mantee, Star of ‘Robinson Crusoe on Mars,’ Dies at 82

11 November 2013 4:48 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paul Mantee, an actor with more than 120 credits on the IMDb who’s probably best known for his role as Det. Al Carossa on “Cagney & Lacey” and as the star of cult film “Robinson Crusoe on Mars,” has died. He was 82.

Mantee was toiling in small, often uncredited roles in the likes of “The Rifleman” or “Hawaiian Eye” when he was chosen to star in the 1964 sci-fi adventure “Robinson Crusoe on Mars,” a survival tale in which the actor played an astronaut stranded on the Red Planet with a monkey. (Adam West co-starred in the film.) The film has come to be critically hailed, and Mantee also appeared the same year in a supporting role in the feature Western “Blood on the Arrow,” but he largely returned to labor in TV roles.

His late ’60s TV credits include “Batman,” “The Fugitive,” “I Spy” and “Mission: Impossible.” Mantee did have a »

Richard Sarafian, Director of ‘Vanishing Point,’ Dies at 83

18 September 2013 12:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Sarafian, who directed the classic 1971 car chase pic “The Vanishing Point” and numerous TV shows and features, died Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif., of complications from pneumonia. He was 83.

Quentin Tarantino paid tribute to the influential film in the “Vanishing Point car” sequence in his film “Death Proof.” Sarafian told TCM.com that his goal with “Vanishing Point” was to physicalize speed. “I had no linear concepts for this one. I made the car… the star of the film. I loved the ambiguity of it all, and fact that it makes people think and apply their own value system into it. My only disappointment was that Gene Hackman wanted to play the part of Kowalski, but the studio wouldn’t let me cast him, so I got saddled with Barry Newman instead,” Sarafian said.

Sarafian also helmed features including “The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing,” with Burt Reynolds; “Sunburn, »

Watch: Elvis' Ex-Girlfriend: He Was 'A Bit Insecure'

16 January 2013 5:27 PM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Elvis Presley performed in front of millions of people over the course of his career, but according to one ex-girlfriend, he was actually afraid of crowds.

"He was a bit insecure," Connie Stevens, who starred on ABC's TV show "Hawaiian Eye" from 1959-63, told HuffPost Live Wednesday.

Stevens said her relationship with the music legend began toward the beginning of his career and Elvis was "a delicious guy," but that he preferred to avoid being around others.

Watch the Full Interview on HuffPost Live.

"He didn't want to go out," Stevens told HuffPost Live host Jacob Soboroff. "We'd go to the movies, and I would see the middle of the movie. I wouldn't see the front and I wouldn't see the end. We had to sneak around."

Stevens also recounted a time when the two ran out of gas and had to push their vehicle down the road. »
