Wow!--61! Huh?

Out of the 63 movies IMDb has him credited in (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000200/?nmdp=1&ref_=nm_ql_4#filmography), I’ve seen the ones listed below.

I can’t say I remember him specifically in each of the movies, and I don’t remember much about three of the movies--Frank & Jesse, Trespass, and The Lords of Discipline.

However, looking at just the movies themselves, Mighty Joe Young, Boxing Helena, and The Dark Backward are the three movies I know I didn’t care for; and the rest of the movies, outside of maybe just an okay for Next of Kin, I liked--most of them I really liked--especially the ones in bold.

I always liked him and apparently he was a nice guy who was married to the same woman for 30 years.

Now that you've mentioned this film, I love the twist of this story so called "The Hands of God". This is the first directorial job of Bill Paxton

Paxton and Pullman were so routinely confused that they were often simply known as The Two Bills. But there was ONE film that they both were in and it is a mind-bender. It is called Brain Dead and it was the last thing produced from a Charles Beaumont story/screenplay. This guy wrote some of the most iconic Twilight Zones ever, so you definitely know something of his work. Brain Dead was definitely obscure, but it is such a joy to watch. "Ooh, NOW I know what's going one!!" Er, nope. Ya don't. Check it out.

His role in Twister really stands out for me. I saw that some storm chasers in the midwest paid tribute to him for bringing attention to their profession.
