A staple on episodic television since the early 1960s, actor and producer Richard Anderson hit his stride in the mid-1970s as the authoritative if sartorially challenged Oscar Goldman, boss to both "The Six Million Dollar Man" (ABC, 1974-78) and "The Bionic Woman" (ABC, 1976-77; NBC, 1977-78). The role was among the high points in a long career that encompassed such varied films as the sci-fi classic "Forbidden Planet" (1956), Stanley Kubrick's "Paths of Glory" (1957) and the Paul Newman classic "The Long Hot Summer" (1958), as well as countless television shows and movies. His bionic-related projects, however, retained a fan base for decades after their departure from the airwaves, ensuring him an enduring popularity among television viewers - particularly for the 1970s-born generation - for years to come.
