I always enjoyed his work.  His role as Bela Lugosi in that Ed Wood bio was brilliant...if memory serves (which is doesn't always), I think he won an Oscar for it -- and deservedly so.

I agree with you, Ron. Although I've admired his work over many years his Lugosi in that movie was outstanding.

 You are the light in the darkness, my friend.

 That is how I will always remember Martin Landau. That, and "PULL DE STRING!! PULL DE STRING!!!"

(And "Karloff....? KARLOFF?? That limey cocksucker does not deserve to sniff my SHIT!!!")

Despite more noteworthy roles for this gentleman, to me he will always be 'Preacher' from ALONE IN THE DARK. The time was the early '80s and the whole horror scene was at its peak. I, like many of you, couldn't get enough of it. So in came this low-budgeter at my local drive-in, and I dug the hell out of it. I think it was the first film of four (TERROR TRAIN, MY BLOODY VALENTINE and ?) showcased.  I remember how thrilled and all the more niche-found I felt that particular night. As if I needed this one to cement my love for anything horror which was absurd since I already felt in my element. I just recall being on a high (without any other substance. Mind you, that would alas come later in life) and loving it to pieces. PIECES, that's the other title listed. PIECES.

Landau was really creepy in Alone in the Dark. I haven't seen that movie in ages. It's really good.
