#Fact
1 Ex-son-in-law of Marjorie Merriweather Post and E.F. Hutton.
2 The reason that Cliff Robertson was not at the Oscars to receive his Best Actor award was because he was in the middle of filming the movie, Too Late the Hero (1970) in the Philippines. The director Robert Aldridge would not allow him to leave due to budget restraints.
3 He appeared in two different comic book company adaptations: Shame in Batman (1966) a DC comics adaption, and Uncle Ben in the Spider-man trilogy, a Marvel comics adaption.
4 Following his death, he was interred at Cedar Lawn Cemetery in East Hampton, New York.
5 Both he and his then wife Dina Merrill played "Special Guest Villains" in Batman (1966).
6 He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on December 17, 1986.
7 Robertson, a longtime resident of Water Mill, New York at the time of his death, died at Stony Brook University Medical Center, a day after his 88th birthday.
8 After serving as a merchant marine, he studied at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. He left the college without getting his degree. He moved to New York City where he studied at the Actors Studio.
9 In 1972, he said that "Nobody made more mediocre films than I did", including Too Late the Hero (1970), which he described as "a bunch of junk".
10 His parents are Clifford Parker Robertson Jr. and the former Audrey Olga Willingham. His father was described as "the idle heir to a tidy sum of ranching money". They have divorced when he was a year old, and his mother died of peritonitis a year later in El Paso, Texas. Robertson was raised by his maternal grandmother, Mary Eleanor "Eleanora" Willingham; an aunt and an uncle.
11 Passed up the chance to play the lead role in Dirty Harry (1971), which went to Clint Eastwood.
12 Tried to raise money to make a sequel to Charly (1968) and even shot a 15-minute portion of it.
13 He has two roles in common with Martin Sheen: (1) Robertson played John F. Kennedy in PT 109 (1963) while Sheen played him in Kennedy (1983) and (2) Robertson played Ben Parker in Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Spider-Man 3 (2007) while Sheen played him in The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014).
14 Inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame in 2006 in the Advocate category.
15 Along with Leonard Nimoy, David McCallum, Barbara Rush and Peter Breck, he is one of only five actors to appear in both The Outer Limits (1963) and The Outer Limits (1995).
16 After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, 18-year-old Cliff - then serving on a merchant ship in the Pacific Ocean - was reported dead to his family in California.
17 He personally campaigned for Congressman Mo Udall in the New Hampshire Democratic Presidential primary in 1976.
18 Was responsible for unraveling a major studio fraud in the 1970s, which led to the downfall of powerful Columbia Pictures president David Begelman. The morality of Hollywood was such that it did more short-term harm to Robertson's career than to Begelman's, who soon after was hired to run MGM. The full story is told in David McClintick's 1982 bestseller, "Indecent Exposure".
19 He had a daughter, Stephanie Robertson, with his first wife, Cynthia Stone. He also had a daughter, Heather Robertson, with his second wife, Dina Merrill.
20 Was a member of the jury at the Berlin International Film Festival in 1989.
21 Special guest at Roger Ebert's 4th annual Overlooked Film Festival in Champaign, Illinois. [March 2002]
22 He owned a number of vintage aircraft, including an original German Messerschmitt ME-108, which was on display at the Parker-O'Malley Air Museum (closed in 2009) in Ghent, New York.
23 Alfred Hitchcock considered him for the role of Sam Loomis in Psycho (1960), but the role went to John Gavin. Robert Wise considered him for the lead role in The Sand Pebbles (1966), but that role went to Steve McQueen.
24 Personally chosen by John F. Kennedy to portray a World War II US Navy Lieutenant Kennedy in PT 109 (1963).
25 Was a well-known sailplane pilot, and was also the voice in the "Running On Empty" documentary video about the Barron Hilton Cup, a prestigious soaring competition.

#Quote
1 [on Joan Crawford] I think she felt fraudulent, precisely because she had crossed the railroad tracks - had come up from nothing - and that therefore she felt she wasn't the real thing because she was just "acting". But Joan was the real thing.
2 [on trying to get a sequel for Charly (1968)] You don't have to be a 17-year-old zealot to wage guerrilla warfare. Some of us, by nature, are intrigued by the challenge. I never intended to play Don Quixote and I don't intend to go out looking for more windmills, I can tell you. I love making movies very much.
3 [on being blacklisted in Hollywood after exposing David Begelman in 1977] People told me I set a dangerous precedent. My ex-wife said that if I had played the game I would have owned the town, but I was always too independent.
4 Show business is like a bumpy bus ride. Sometimes you find yourself temporarily juggled out of your seat and holding onto a strap. But the main idea is to hang in there and not be shoved out the door.
5 [on director Frank Perry] I've been in so many bad movies and worked with so many bad directors that I go into a film expecting nothing. That's why I respect and admire Frank Perry so much. He's a rare man and I've worked with enough stiffs to know the difference, pal, but he knows the problems of actors and I know the problems of a director. Frank is as far away from Otto Preminger as you can get.
6 The year you win an Oscar is the fastest year in a Hollywood actor's life. Twelve months later they ask, "Who won the Oscar last year?".
7 This isn't exactly a stable business. It's like trying to stand up in a canoe with your pants down.
8 As long as I get phone calls from the Museum of Modern Art, that all the film buffs love it, that's a residual. It isn't a financial residual and it isn't an artistic residual, but it's an ego residual.
