I think it's kind of fitting that a man famous for several sequels, most notably The Empire Strikes Back, is the second in the "rule of three" mythos.
Actually he is the 3rd in the "rule of three". All within 5 days of each other.

So sad. The man made some great movies. I might rewatch Never Say Never Again tonight in his honor.

And Robocop 2 was a big part of mine.
I was 14 when it came out and must have seen it a dozen times at the $1 theater downtown.

Don't forget his small part in The Last Temptation of Christ.. heh, thought he was good in it. I think I know who your talking about! When I saw him in the movie in 1988 I thought he looked familiar and on VHS, laserdisc and dvd I would always think he looks familiar.
But I never bothered to check the credits.

'The Film Flam Man' is probably my favorite film he did, I just watched that again a couple of months back.
