He had two very amusing scenes as a mob boss in COTTON COMES TO HARLEM (1970). That was the first thing I saw him in.

This guy was great. I probably first remember him from "V".

I've been a HUGE fan of The Monster Squad since I was a kid; always liked seeing this guy on film.

Mr. Cimino studied acting, directing and modern dance at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theater. But he thought that his looks — he was slight of build and had a distinctively thin face — might make it hard to win steady roles when he was trying to choose a profession in the 1940s. Those looks, however, turned out to be his greatest asset.

“He doesn’t look like anybody else,” Ms. Powers said. “If you want a Leo Cimino, you want a Leo Cimino.”
