Requiem for a gladiator film aficionado

R.I.P. Peter Graves, 1926-2010.

I wonder if he had the chicken or the fish. Though he'll be best remembered for Airplane! and "Mission: Impossible", I'll also never forget his performances in such Mystery Science Theater 3000 staples as Parts: The Clonus Horror and It Conquered the World, as well as Phil Harman's hilarious impersonation of him ("Welcome to the world of Discover!").
