Norman Lloyd (1914–2021)

The actor Norman Lloyd has died at the age of 106. The New York Times has an obituary.

Here’s a short video profile from The Hollywood Profile: Norman Lloyd: Creative Until You Die.

My longest-standing memory of Lloyd: as Frank Fry in Hitchcock’s Saboteur. “The sleeve”: unforgettable.

[The Times description of Fry as “a chilly fascist sympathizer” is highly inaccurate. The obituary later comes closer: "a fifth columnist bent on attacking American targets during World War II.” But Fry isn’t bent on attacking targets: he does attack, and destroy, two.]
