Trivia that mentions this person:
9 [2009]
  • Being a Tim Burton production, some of his trademarks have made it into the film. The themes of outsiders or the alienated triumphing over adversity. Some of his design schemes are present like stripes. The funeral scene looks very similar to the one in Burton's Batman Returns. And people who've worked with Burton helped make the film, like Martin Landau. The film was also co-composed by Burton's frequent composer Danny Elfman.
    Hercules [1997]
  • Terrence Mann, Michael Ironside and Martin Landau auditioned for the role of Hades.
  • James Coburn, Kelsey Grammer, Steve Buscemi, Jason Lee, Phil Hartman, Michael Keaton, Michael Ironside, Benjamin Bratt, Martin Landau, Ned Beatty, Terrence Mann, Christopher Plummer, Ron Silver, Kevin Spacey, Bill Hunter, and Rod Steiger auditioned for Hades. Ten of these actors that auditioned would later get parts in Pixar Films.
    North by Northwest [1959]
  • Among the problems that the Production Code found with this movie was the effeminacy of the henchman Leonard (Martin Landau). Landau had taken it upon himself to play his character as a closeted homosexual who is in love with the James Mason character.
  • The crop scene is homaged in The X Files (1998), when Mulder and Scully are pursued by helicopters in another crop field. Martin Landau appears in both films.
