The actor Martin Landau, best known for roles in the TV series Mission: Impossible and Space 1999, has died, aged 89. Steven Spielberg fans will know him as Paul Savage in the director's 1973 TV movie, "Savage." The movie was about a TV reporter who investigates compromising photographs of a nominee to the Supreme Court. The episode was produced as a pilot but unfortunately was not picked up.
His publicist Dick Guttman confirmed the death, saying: "We are overcome with sadness."
