I remember him from The Jewel in the Crown, many Shakespeare productions, and lots of British mystery shows.
Monday I learned that Powers Boothe had died. When I first heard of him, I thought his name was a put-on, but it was his real name. I first remember him from a television movie about Jim Jones. The Chronicle ran a photo of Boothe wearing sunglasses that scared me. He was good playing Philip Marlowe in an HBO series.
