'Jackie Brown'

Robert Forster earned a supporting actor Oscar nomination for his memorable turn as the world-weary bail bondsman Max Cherry who finds love in Quentin Tarantino's 1997 thriller based on an Elmore Leonard novel.

'Medium Cool'

Forster received acclaim for his performance as John Cassellis, a TV news cameraman who falls for a widow in Haskell Wexler's unconventional 1969 drama that intersperses documentary footage into the narrative.

Banyon

Forster made his first foray into series TV with this 1972-73 NBC detective show, produced by Quinn Martin, in which he played 1930s L.A. gumshoe Miles C. Banyon. Veteran Joan Blondell played a secretarial school operator who was in the same building as Banyon.
