iWon News: "Gervase Duan 'G.D.' Spradlin, a former lawyer and oil producer who found a second act as a prolific character actor, playing authority figures in such films as 'Apocalypse Now' and 'The Godfather: Part II,' has died. He was 90."

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

I remember him best as the salesman for "Thunder Tractors" in a Dragnet episode (2nd series).

I hadn't realized he was 90. He played a lot of Generals over the years.
