Best known for his Golden Globe-winning portrayal of lead agent Jim Phelps on the Cold War spy series "Mission: Impossible" (1967-73), Graves is also remembered for his quote-worthy turn as unflappable pilot Capt. Clarence Oveur in the disaster spoof Airplane (1980). He reprised the part two years later in Airplane II: The Sequel.
Later in life, Graves hosted A&E's acclaimed "Biography" series, winning an Emmy for outstanding informational series in 1997. He died of a heart attack on March 14, 2010, just days before his 84th birthday.
For the Allied prisoners of Stalag 17, every escape attempt ends the same way: disaster. Cynical Sgt. Sefton (William Holden, in his Oscar-winning role) thinks they're all fools for trying -- but soon his hectoring starts raising suspicions that there's a German spy among them. Could that spy be him? Director Billy Wilder effortlessly mixes broad comedy and high-tension drama in this World War II classic.
