Romero's The Crazies (1973), The Final Countdown, Porky's II: The Next Day, and Flight of the Navigator. Television appearances included roles on Miami Vice and Key West. He is probably best known for portraying Dr. Matthew "Frankenstein" Logan in Romero's Day of the Dead (1985).

Liberty died on October 2, 2000,[1] in Dania, Florida, at the age of 68 from a heart attack. His final interview, conducted by film historians Christian Stavrakis and Robert Telleria, may be heard as a supplement on the Anchor Bay Entertainment DVD and Blu-ray releases of Day of the Dead.[2]
