Actor Peter Brocco, who appeared on stage and television and in more than 80 films from early talkies to “Twilight Zone: The Movie,” died Sunday of a heart attack at his home. He was 89.
His liberal politics caused him to be blacklisted in the 1950s.
But he returned to make “I’ll Cry Tomorrow,””Our Man Flint” and “The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming.”
Brocco, born in Reading, Pa., also appeared in the films “Spartacus,””One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,””Throw Momma From the Train” and “War of the Roses” and on stage in “Galileo” and “The Night of the Iguana.”
He was seen regularly on TV shows such as “The Twilight Zone,””Star Trek” and “Hill Street Blues.”
