Early role gives clue to the talent of this future Oscar-winner
Had another performer been cast in the rolled of "Dar", "The Invaders", a first-season installment of Irwin Allen's classic series, could have been nothing special. But in the talented hands of Robert Duvall, the unearthed alien is something else.
Duvall provides the right balance of innocence and menace as a centuries-old alien with sinister plans for humanity. He is featured in almost every scene and, even in his "infancy" as an actor, the performer gives a clue as to what the future holds.
Because the show was in the science-fiction-fantasy genre, he unfairly didn't get an Emmy nod and, for that, he was deserving.
The wonder of DVD makes it possible for his fans to see him in a most unusual role, a far cry from the movie and TV roles for which he is most famous.
