Burgess Meredith Twilight Zone Robert Shaw


ummm... I don't recall Fritz Weaver as a Cardassian.
And, indeed, Fritz Weaver was a Cardassian lawyer. That was one of my favorite eps.
Harris Yulin & Fritz Weaver both appeared as Cardassians in as Justices William O. Douglas and Justice Hugo Black on HBO.
Fritz Weaver as Asteroth kinda messed me up as a kid. Thanks Fritz.
Hal Holbrook & Fritz Weaver are as good as any Hammer actor. Even *** Barbeau is good in this milieu.
Bruce Dern, Robert Shaw & Fritz Weaver play their roles to the hilt in
If I have to endure this alternate dimension - I at least want it acted it as well as Burgess Meredith & Fritz Weaver in "The O…
That isn't the episode with Burgess Meredith and Fritz Weaver?
Burgess Meredith and Fritz Weaver are a dream team, man (could use some more Jack Klugman, though).
She had in mind a different kind of looking person, because his appear...
I saw Fritz Weaver in the autograph line to meet Hermann Prey when Prey gave his solo recital at the 92nd St.Y. Lots of lieder
Yep. Fritz Weaver played the Chancellor in OM. Which is actually how we started this conversation! ;D
Funny coincidence? Fritz Weaver lives in my apartment building.
"The Obsolete Man" episode of "The Twilight Zone" is on Fritz Weaver is evil personified; Burgess Meredith is perfection.
Pull that same scenario as Twilight Zone's "Obsolete Man" ep except with me as Burgess Meredith and them as Fritz Weaver.
(In ‘The Obsolete Man’ on Twilight Zone, Fritz Weaver was the judge and Burgess Meredith was on trial.)
It would’ve been especially great if he’d played the judge in the DS9 episode ‘Tribunal’ with Fritz Weaver. An ode to ‘The Obsolete Man’.
Rod Serling "was a fearless and enthusiastic trailblazer." -- Fritz Weaver, the Chancellor in "The Obsolete Man"
Stumbled on a "Twilight Zone" with a young Fritz Weaver. Just love that guy's weird energy--like a feverish Fred Gwynne.

Good late night/early morning to all of the fantastic 12 O'Clock High fans here! I certainly hope some of us will be awake at 5 a.m. Eastern and Pacific, 4 a.m. Central to watch episode which is excellent despite the story being mainly a "soap opera on the ground" type of episode (that quote is NOT mine but was given to me by a video client years ago who wanted me to weed out episodes that had only minimal aerial combat scenes and sell him only the action episodes. In any case this episode has the excellent guest star Glynnis Johns and superb special guest star Fritz Weaver (who happens to be from my neck of the woods, the City of Pittsburgh, PA). So, without further adieu here is the synopsis for "The Hours Before Dawn"-enjoy!

"The Obsolete Man" with Burgess Meredith and Fritz Weaver. An excellent way to bring in the New Year.
The banter in this between Burgess Meredith's intelligent and soft spoken librarian and Fritz Weaver's Chancellor is awesome!
I'm mixed on Dustin Hoffman. When he's good, he's terrific. But often I find him to be the type that over intellectualizes his performance, thus putting a wall between him and the viewer that can be hard to overlook. He's in good form in this taut thriller from John Schlesigner and William Goldman, however. Marathon Man (1976) is a watershed 70s thriller and its key scene of sadistic violence has seeped into the pop culture, whether you've heard of the film or not. Laurence Olivier gives one of his finest performances as the Nazi war criminal looking to get his hands on a fortune in diamonds, and there are choice roles for Marthe Keller, Roy Scheider, William Devane and Fritz Weaver. The cast is first rate, it looks great thanks to Conrad Hall's cinematography and it maintains a high degree of tension throughout. The blu ray looks very nice and includes a retrospective documentary with some good comments from Hoffman, the late Scheider, producer Robert Evans and others.
THE CRUCIBLE - David Susskind's 3 time Emmy Award Winning 1967 TV production of Arthur Miller's play "The Crucible" - 12 yr old Kathy Cody as Betty Parris. Starring George C. Scott (Emmy for Best Actor), Colleen Dewhurst (Emmy for Best Actress), Melvin Douglas, Tuesday Weld, Catherine Burns, Fritz Weaver, Kathleen Cody, Thayer David, Dana Elcar, Clarice Blackburn. Third Emmy was for Best Director. I was 11 years old when we filmed this production but 12 when it aired. Arthur Miller was present everyday of the 3 week rehearsal and then filming. I played the role of Betty Parris, Reverend Parris' daughter and cousin to Abigail Williams (Tuesday Weld). Under pressure and threat of her cousin, Abigail, Betty was one of the original Salem girls that started the horrific Salem Witch Hunts. I remember every moment of creating this amazing production and loved playing this role... A definitive experience for me from which emerged my lifelong love for my craft and admiration for all the amazing artists I was ...
Judge Reinhold just popped up on Magnum. In an episode with Fritz Weaver & Robert Loggia.
The actors in Muhammad Ali's greatest fight on HBO are great. Fritz Weaver, Christopher Plummer, Frank Langella.
THE OBSOLETE MAN In a future totalitarian state, Romney Wordsworth (Burgess Meredith) is a man put on trial for the crime of being obsolete. His occupation as a librarian is a crime punishable by death, as the State has eliminated books and literacy. He believes in God, a crime also punishable by death, as the State claims to have proven that there is no God. He is prosecuted by the Chancellor (Fritz Weaver), who announces in front of the assembled court that Wordsworth, in not being an asset to the State, shall be liquidated.

Today in History -- Saturday, Jan. 19 (Jean Stapleton, Fritz Weaver, Tippi Hedren, Richard Lester, Phil Everly, Dolly Parton, Martha Davis) The Associated Press Today is Saturday, Jan. 19, the 19th day of 2013. There are 346 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On Jan. 19, 1953, CBS-TV aired the widely watched episode of "I Love Lucy" in which Lucy Ricardo, played by Lucille Ball, gave birth to Little Ricky. (By coincidence, Ball gave birth the same day to her son, Desi Arnaz Jr.) On this date: In 1807, Confederate general Robert E. Lee was born in Westmoreland County, Va. In 1853, Giuseppe Verdi's opera "Il Trovatore" premiered in Rome. In 1861, Georgia became the fifth state to secede from the Union.

In 1942, during World War II, Japan invaded Burma (Myanmar). In 1955, a presidential news conference was filmed for television ...
Right. All of a sudden, we're in that Twilight Zone episode with Fritz Weaver and "the state" watching over us. Has to be
"The Obsolete Man" One of my fav episodes, with two of my fav TZ actors, Burgess Meredith & Fritz Weaver.
Directed by Sidney Lumet. With Henry Fonda, Walter Matthau, Fritz Weaver, Dan O'Herlihy. American planes are sent to deliver a nuclear attack on Moscow, but it's a mistake due to an electrical malfunction. Can all-out war be averted?
7/6, I had a Twilight Zone Season 2 marathon thanks to the library. I saw one, The Silence, I had never seen. Another, The Obsolete Man, I barely remembered. In The Silence, a man is bet $500K he can't stay silent for a year. It felt like O. Henry or Saki writing for Serling. Obsolete Man had Burgess Meredith & Fritz Weaver. A librarian is found obsolete & sentenced to the execution of his choice - vengeance. Wow!
