With power comes responsibility

by on

Oscar-winning actor Cliff Robertson lived the kind of leadership he portrayed as Peter Parker’s uncle in “Spiderman.”

His career, said Robertson, lost its mojo after he blew the whistle on a Holly­wood executive who forged and cashed a $10,000 check in Robertson’s name.

Despite warnings to keep mum, the actor exposed the president of Columbia Pictures who, after a criminal investigation, was found to have embezzled more than $60,000 from the studio. Robertson later charged that Hollywood’s old-boy network blacklisted him for it.

If that’s true, it suits the role Robertson portrayed late in his career, delivering the line that gave “Spiderman” its moral heft: “With great power comes great responsibility.”
