Actor Don Gordon Dead At 90; Appeared With Steve McQueen In Three Films

7 May 2017 6:42 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Gordon with Steve McQueen in the 1968 blockbuster "Bullitt".


By Lee Pfeiffer

Character actor Don Gordon has died at age 90. Gordon was a close friend of Steve McQueen and he appeared with McQueen in three of his biggest hits: "Bullitt", "Papillon" and "The Towering Inferno". Gordon generally played strong silent types and his face was familiar to movie goers especially in the 1960s and 1970s. In "Bullitt" he had a meaty role playing the partner of McQueen's maverick detective. In "Papillon" he was a fellow convict suffering through the hell of Devil's Island prison and in "The Towering Inferno" he played a fellow firefighter helping McQueen to save trapped people from a blazing skyscraper. Gordon also appeared on numerous television series in guest star roles and earned an Emmy nomination for his performance in "The Defenders". Among his other screen credits: "Wusa", "Fuzz", "Lethal Weapon", "The Final Conflict" and "Exorcist III". For more click here. »
