About Robert Stack (1919 – 2003)
Robert Stack's birth name was Charles Langford Modini Stack. Never interested in team sports, Robert Stack took up skeet shooting. In 1935, he came in 2nd in the National Skeet Shooting Championship.
In 1939 Robert made his screen debut in First Love. Stack's mother introduced him to movie stars like Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy as a child so they could act as surrogate father figures to him. They often took him hunting and fishing.
Robert Stack made his most lasting public impression on television playing G-Man Eliot Ness in the Prohibition-era dramatic series The Untouchables (1959-63). Many years later he would throw all caution to the wind with a hilarious self-parody in Airplane! (1980).
In 1956 Robert Stack received a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for Written On The Wind.
Starting in 1988 Robert Stack became the host of the highly-successful TV series Unsolved Mysteries.
Robert Stack's voice can be heard on many animated shows: In 2001 he was the voice of Stoat Muldoon in Butt-ugly Martians; in Recess: School's Out he could be heard as the school superintendent, and in 1999 he was the voice of the narrator for Hercules. Teenagers nationwide also recognized his voice as ATF Agent Fleming on Beavis And Butthead Do America.
