The stage, screen and television mainstay was one of Hollywood’s best known character actors as well as the star of the 1956 cult classic Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. He died on Saturday at a Cape Cod hospital in Massachusetts. He was 96. The chisel-jawed actor appeared in almost 100 films over seven decades (he was nominated for an Oscar as “Biff” in 1951’s Death Of A Salesman) and was omnipresent in primetime. He was the brother of writer/critic Mary McCarthy.
