Norman Lloyd turns 98!

Today is the 98th birthday of actor Norman Lloyd, whom you may remember for playing Frank Fay, the bad guy in Alfred Hitchcock's Saboteur. The photo above is of Lloyd, taking the ferry out to Liberty Island (you can see the statue in the background), leading up to the climax atop the Statue of Liberty. Interestingly, the blog where I found the photo above, had problems with Saboteur that are exactly the reason I like the movie.

Another good photo of Lloyd hanging from the prop Liberty can be seen at the sit of the LA Stage Times, who interviewed Lloyd back in 2010 as part of a promotion for a one-night show Lloyd did back then. The interview also discusses Spellbound, as well as a lot of Lloyd's other work.

Lloyd was also married for 75 years, until the death of his wife back in August 2011.
