Somebody has been inserting spurious references in this article.[edit]

On at least two separate occasions, references to a Star Trek (TOS) episode, "Requiem for a Martian," have been inserted into this article.

There is not, and never has been, any such episode. There is an episode titled "Requiem for Methuselah," but while "Requiem for a Martian" might have existed as a short story or novella in a fanzine, or as a comic book, it was never produced as an episode; neither was any such story published as a novel, or in any authorized anthology (by Bantam or Pocket).

I am told, however, that this spurious episode title was used as part of a joke in Free Enterprise (film).

Inaccurate Link[edit]

The link to "Tony" takes you to a page about the name "Anthony," not to anything about the Tony Awards. And shouldn't we add a box showing the predecessor and successor winners of the award? 4.232.186.186 05:45, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

"Best Known For ???"[edit]

I find it hard to believe that he's best known for voiceover work. Very few people (possibly Mel Blanc and some of the "Simpsons" actors) would be best known for voice work. Mr. Kiley was a very well-known stage and television actor, and had several important film roles as well.4.232.186.186 05:45, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

I can't believe that this horrendous line in a horrendous lede has not been addressed in over six years. I'm going to do a quick sourced fix now and expand on it as time permits/Sensei48 (talk) 14:56, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Wrong fact[edit]

Note that ' "In Jurassic Park, the park's impresario boasts about the tour of the park, "The voice you're now hearing is Richard Kiley. We've spared no expense." ' is wrong.

Quote is from curator Dr Hammond played & voiced by Richard Attenborough http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jurassic_Park_(film)#Cast Timestamp approx 00:40:15-00:40:19

Changed to: "In Jurassic Park, the park's impresario boasts that in the orientation film, "The voice you're now hearing is Richard Kiley. We've spared no expense."" Wordreader (talk) 07:18, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Filmography[edit]

Is there any reason the TV movie, "The Final Days," is not listed in his credits? He plays Richard Nixon's attorney in the film, a starring role. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:33A0:4070:28D8:253E:ECA5:B2D (talk) 09:11, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
