Peter Graveswas great actor. Many of us knew him best for his role of Jim Phelps, leader of a gang of special agents who battled evil conspirators in TV’s “Mission: Impossible“. Some others also remember him staring in”Fury“, Billy Wilder’s “Stalag 17“, Charles Laughton’s “The Night of the Hunter“, Otto Preminger’s “The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell” and “Airplane!“. Graves passed away Sunday just a few days before his 84th birthday, outside his home in Los Angeles.
We were huge fans of “Mission: Impossible” so we couldn’t not mention the death of the actor on the Sama Gazette. He was also a very decent, honorable human being. Thanks for all of your memorable roles!
