14-Mar-2010 (one comment)

Peter Graves - star of the classic TV series Mission: Impossible and disaster spoof movie Airplane! - has died in the US city of Los Angeles. He was 83.

The actor had a suspected heart attack outside his home after a meal with his family, about a week before his 84th birthday, said publicist Sandy Brokaw.

Graves was perhaps best known for his role as special agent Jim Phelps in the popular TV series Mission: Impossible.

He also played bungling pilot Clarence Oveur in the 1980 film Airplane!.

Peter Graves Loved Iran and Iranians

by Darius Kadivar on

He made a name with the series Mission Impossible often directed by Iranian expat Reza S. Badyiii. He was invited to Iran several times and I have photos of him coming to Iran's Film Festival. He shot two films in Iran in the late 70's too.

God Bless !
