You may not know the name Pat Hingle, but he was a long-time actor and you have probably seen his face a million times. His most famous role was that of Commissioner Gordon in the Batman movies. But he was so much more than an actor. He was a very nice man, never tainted by fame and wealth. I had the great fortune to know him in my younger and wilder days. He was always so nice to me and made me smile whenever our paths crossed.
Today he passed away from cancer.
The world has lost one of the last, great motion picture actors.
