Rest in peace, Cliff Robertson. The actor died Saturday, September 10, of natural causes, just one day after his 88th birthday. He won a Best Actor Oscar for his role in the 1968 tearjerker 'Charly,' but is probably best known to contemporary moviegoers as Tobey Maguire's Uncle Ben in the first 'Spider-Man' film, the father figure who tells him that with great power, comes great responsibility. Click for clips from some of his most memorable movie roles, including 'Three Days of the Condor' and 'Picnic.'
