Paul Mantee - Rotten Tomatoes

Paul Mantee



Smooth, suave American general purpose actor Paul Mantee played the leading role in his first film, the superior sci-fier Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964). He went the James Bond route in A Man Called Dagger (1966), then settled into a lengthy supporting career in films (They Shoot Horses Don't They, Great Santini) and TV movies (Helter Skelter). Mantee wrote several amusing TV Guide articles about the peripatetic existence of the journeyman actor, once toting up a list of the lines he'd spoken most often (topping the charts was "I don't want to hurt you, but I will if have to"). From 1986 through 1988, Paul Mantee was seen on a weekly basis as Detective Al Corassa on Cagney and Lacey and later had a recurring role on the series Hunter. Mantee retired from acting in the late '90s and passed away in November 2013 at age 82.
