actor monikers

Actor Malachi Throne, who died on March 13 at age 84 in Los Angeles, had a remarkable career that spanned seven decades and included roles in scores of classic TV shows. Star Trek junkies remember him as the voice of the Talosian leader The Keeper in the series' 1966 pilot episode, but he also portrayed False-Face in Batman and Noah Bain, the government boss assigned to rein in Robert Wagner's thief-turned-spy Alexander Mundy, in the hit late-1960s action series It Takes A Thief. But the native New Yorker had another, even more intriguing distinction: Not only did he have one of the most exotic monikers in show business, but it actually was the name on his birth certificate as well.
