Mean, miserly, and miserable-looking, Charles Lane made a career playing memorable characters. Many times, those characters had no names. He was just Clerk, or Passerby. Choose from this list of TV Shows or Movies, and the associated role profession, that you think he was best suited, or remembered for.

what an incredible character actor he was...brilliant poll...

and so many great choices to choose from...(and about a hundred more i can think of off the top of my head...)

but they are all basically the same...a bit part as a financial consultant, a demanding citizen, a taxman, or something to that effect...usually ornery....usually in some position of authority...

so i will go for his role in 'the beverly hillbillies' because that is a great summation of all those great characters he played...indeed, what a loss...

marvelous cliff...

CliffJ,

The code for linking names in a list is of the form:
[link=nm1234567]
Where nm1234567 is the Name ID for the specific person.

The code for Charles Lane (I):
[link=nm0485272]

After saving your edits, this will be displayed as:
Charles Lane

- - -

When I see a picture of Charles Lane, I immediately think of Homer Bedlow the railroad executive that continually tried to shut down the operation of the Hooterville Cannonball on Petticoat Junction.

This Clip from the Lucy Show....- Lucy Is a Kangaroo for a Day (1962)
Charles Lane ... is  Mr. Barnsdahl, a Banker! What else would he be!
A 30 Year young Majel Barrett ... before she was a Computer Voice, a Nurse, and Mrs Roddenberry as Miss Massey
Also John McGiver ...plays, Mr. Irwin. John McGiver ...is best known for playing Senator Thomas Jordan in, The Manchurian Candidate (1962)
This is still funny after it originally aired over 55 years ago.

For those that have or have not seen him in a role.

Please include a question in your description.
Instead of this:

Choose from this list of TV Shows or Movies, and the associated role profession, that you think he was best suited, or remembered for.

May I suggest:

From this list of TV shows, movies and the associated role profession, which do you think he is best remembered for?
