Born Apr. 14th, 1930 – Died January 16th, 2019
Dillman is one of those actors that if you grew up watching made-for-TV movies and feature films throughout the 70s, then while you might not know the name, you’ll know his face. From appearing on TV in one of my favorite Night Gallery episodes (Pickman’s Model) to movies like Fear No Evil (1969), Moon of the Wolf (1972), and The Dark Secret of Harvest Home (1978), to feature films like Joe Dante’s Piranha (1978), Irwin Allen’s The Swarm (1978), to the best movie ever to feature flaming cockroaches, William Castle’s Bug (1975), Dillman was always interesting to watch. Whether he was playing the villain or the hero, he always delivered. He was one of those faces from my childhood fandom that I’ve always remembered fondly.
