Martin Balsam (1919-1996)

  1. Douglas Rain, 2001 A Space Odyssey, 1968.       Director Stanley Kubrick felt the Psycho detective's tone was too emotional. That's how computer HAL 9000 became the narrator of a favourite space-docu of Kubrick’s Universe, 1959. (was one of 200l’s original titles, along with Tunnel To The Stars, Journey Beyond The Stars, Planetfall). The Canadian actor was first booked for the (axed) 2001 narration. Rain did his HAL work in ten hours. In France, HAL was voiced by a star, Jean-Louis Trintignant, who also dubbed The Shining's Jack Nicholson. In the weak sequel, 2010, 1984, the computer SAL 9000 was voiced by Candice Bergen.
  2. Sydney Chaplin, The Adding Machine, 1969.    Balsam (as Lieutenant Charles), Art Carney (Mr Zero) and the redoubtable Shelley Winters (as the shrewish Mrs Zero) were negotiating for the Seven Arts version in 1964.
  3. Larry Hagman, Stardust, 1974.     As a UK rocker’s Texan business manager, Porter Lee Austin.
  4. Jackie Cooper, Superman, 1978.
