I imagine you'll soon be hearing from Max Allan Collins about his favorite Clifton James role: as crooked Lt. Quint in the short-lived City Of Angels.

Meantime, I'll mention my favorite Clifton James role: as Red Kilgren (aka S. Claus) on All My Children (circa 1996).

Any others of you with your faves - line forms here.

Wow. 96. I hadn't realized that.

He was great as Quint, and I remember his S. Claus role well. Judy was a big fan of ALL MY CHILDREN.

Mike Doran is correct. That was Clifton James' role of a lifetime -- funny and terrifying, perhaps the greatest crooked mean cop ever.
