No one will argue his brilliant performance in Dirty Harry as the Scorpio Killer, but what will create conversation, is why Andrew Robinson didn't become more well known after that break out role in a huge Hollywood film.
What's even more puzzling is that he is equally good in everything he's done since then, from the movie Hellraiser, to his role as Garak in the Star Trek television spin off, Deep Space Nine, to the made-for-television biography, Liberace, where he played the title role.
My guess is that after Dirty Harry, narrow-minded Hollywood thought he could only play "crazies" and closed the door on this enormous talent. Andrew Robinson never had the career that he should of had, but he has managed to work as an actor in both film and television. He's pretty easy to spot, as he's the one you can't keep your eyes off of.
