AKA Robert Rietti or 'The Man of a Thousand Voices'

Note: almost all his roles here are dubbed voice-overs or bit parts.

Film Deaths

  • Tank Force (1958) [Alberto]: Stabbed to death by Bonar Colleano after Robert has killed Luciana Paluzzi. (Thanks to Brian)
  • Sink the Bismarck! (1960) [Capt. Lindemann (voice)]: "Capt. Lindemann" (Carl Mohner) is killed when the Bismarck gets sunk. (though I can't recall the details).
  • The Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre: Time To Remember (1962) [Victor]: Stabbed in the back with a chisel by Harry H. Corbett when he attacks Harry as he is trying to dismantle a fireplace. Harry then hides the body in the fireplace but it is later discovered by the police. (Thanks to Brian)

* Dr. No (1962) [John Strangeways (voice)]: "Strangeways" (Tim Moxon) is shot repeatedly by the "Three Blind Mice" assassins.

TV Deaths

  • Hamlet (1947; TV) [Rosencrantz]: Presumably executed (I've never seen this, but were all familiar with the play).
  • The Prisoner: Once Upon a Time (1967) [Number Two (voice)]: "Number Two" (Leo McKern) dies of apparent poisoning during the confrontation with Patrick McGoohan.

Note: providing the dubbed voices, Robert has probably "died" in place of many other actors playing very tiny roles.
