Robert Quarry in Dr. Phibes Rises Again

Over at the Classic Horror Film Board, Ted Newsom reported the recent passing of actor Robert Quarry, star of Count Yorga, Vampire and its sequel, The Return of Count Yorga. Apparently Quarry had been in poor health for quite some time. I don't have it in me to write his obituary (Firefox appears to be conspiring on me on that point, eating two previous drafts of this article); I will simply note that I admired his performances in both Yorga films, as well as his ability to hold his own against Vincent Price in Dr. Phibes Rises Again. For a fuller appreciation of the actor, I can do no better than to point you to Steve Biodrowski's touching tribute to Quarry over at Cinefantastique Online.
