Joseph Wiseman, The Original James Bond Villain, Dead At Age 91

10/20/2009 Posted by Admin

From Cinemaretro: "Joseph Wiseman, who made screen history as the first 007 screen villain in the title role of Dr. No, has died at age 91. Wiseman was a distinguished name in both film and on stage, and remained active on Broadway in recent years. Only a few years ago, he had a major role in the revival of Judgment at Nuremberg. Wiseman also had many other major films to his credit including The Night They Raided Minsky's, Detective Story and The Unforgiven. Wiseman rarely granted interviews, despite countless requests to discuss his role in Dr. No."

Time to rent the film, if only to remember just how great Wiseman was as Dr. No.
