Additional Movie Not Listed in Table on Cliff Robertson[edit]

1973 : The Man Without a Country in which Robertson plays Philip Nolan. Please refer to iMDB for details.

Forged check[edit]

Robertson was the victim of a boycott later in life, apparently in retaliation for going to the authorities after his signature was forged by a producer. I can't name the individuals involved, but it was headline news at the time and none of this is noted.68.111.71.197 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 10:37, 1 March 2010 (UTC).

Ok well if you "can't name them" perhaps we ought not to use phrases like "the people who run Hollywood" as absent any specific citation, it sound a lot to me like a dogwhistle for 'Jews'. In any case it's weasly as it is. 50.164.202.78 (talk) 21:20, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Birthdate[edit]

Robertson was born Clifford P. Robertson in Los Angeles on September 9, 1923. Here's the proof. Crisso (talk) 17:39, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

The Untouchables (1959 TV series)[edit]

I would of thought that the TV series "The Untouchables" would have rated a mention. 121.215.27.78 (talk) 11:56, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

BirthPLACE correction[edit]

While "Birthdate" above is correct, birthplace is incorrect, and La Jolla, CA--not Los Angeles--is noted in three (3) sources, most recently in NYTimes obituary I have used in correction.Mwprods (talk) 18:53, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

September 11 coincidence[edit]

It's creepy and ironic at the same time. During the September 11 attack he was flying and seen the first attack and forced to land, that he should happen to pass away a day before the 10th anniversary of that attack and a day after his birthday.

I didn't realize you (or someone else; a different IP address 99.135.197.161?) were serious about changing the article. The WP community tends to view "creepy coincidences" as non-encyclopedic; they are considered original research and synthesis and routenely get reverted. (In a nutshell: research is the readers' business, not ours; and we can't put 2 and 2 together to get 5.) There is no need to risk implying there is anything behind the "coincidences", which the readers are well able to see for themselves. Please familiarize yourself with the policies.

-- Outer Limits episodes and other TV ==

Much of Robertson's TV work is not mentioned. For example, he was in both the (1960s) Outer Limits pilot, entitied "The Galaxy Being," and in a 1990's OL episode. Nor does this mention the TV ep., "The Two Worlds of Charlie Gordon" which led to the theatrical movie, "Charlie," both based on the science fiction story, "Flowers for Algernon."
