RIP Actor-Director John Carter

carter NEW YORK CITY–Actor-director John Carter, who had a 40-year career in theater, movies and television, died here May 23 from pneumonia. He was 87. MSTies may remember him in a small role as a flight surgeon in the movie “Marooned,” a re-edited version of which was featured in episode 401- SPACE TRAVELERS.
His film credits include Lasse Halstrom’s “The Hoax,” Woody Allen’s “Celebrity,” “Random Hearts” (directed by Sydney Pollack), as well as “Joe Kidd,” “Scarface” and “Badlands.” His numerous television appearances include recurring roles on “Law & Order,” “All My Children” and “Barnaby Jones” (appearing for five years as Lt. Biddle) and the miniseries “The Winds of War.”

Thanks to Duane (one of my angels of death) for the heads up.

    Spelling is your first concern when reading an obituary? Wow… I would not want to be “survived by” Lee.

    Goodbye, Mr. Carter.

    Did he really die, or just get teleported to Barsoom?

    Hey, if you can’t be pedantic on the internet, why even have a computer?
