    Rod Taylor Has Passed

    The Birds actor Rod Taylor dies aged 84... as former co-star Tippi Hedren pays tribute to her 'great pal'

    Taylor was best known for his roles in The Birds, The Time Machine, and voiced the character of Pongo in 101 Dalmatians.

    R.I.P. Mr. Taylor.

    I also remember him from an earlier sci-fi flick called World Without End. My mom also loved him in his TV series Hong Kong from the early 1960s.

    We loved him as Mitch in The Birds - that movie was insanely creepy!

    I forgot to mention him in that great Twilight Zone episode And When the Sky Was Opened. In the DVD box set extra, Rod actually does the audio commentary for the story.
