RIP, Victor Lundin

Meeting Victor Lundin in June 2010 at Larry Edmunds Bookshop in Hollywood.

Victor Lundin, one of the stars of Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964) passed away on July 2, 2013. He was 83.

I met Mr. Lundin at a book signing in June 2010. Ib Melchior's Six Cult Films from the Sixties had just been published, and some of Mr. Melchior's old friends joined him for the festivities. Robinson Crusoe stars Paul Mantee and Victor Lundin turned out, as did Robert Skotak, an Academy Award winner who authored his own book on Mr. Melchior.

I hoped to meet Mr. Lundin again at some point, but it was not to be. He was a charming individual, and I'll always cherish the time we crossed paths.

Rest in peace.
