Head & Face

Robert StackThe Great Stone Face - Reacting rather than acting, Robert Stack's performances as FBI agent Eliot Ness on the crime drama THE UNTOUCHABLES/ABC/1959-63 earned him the nickname "The Great Stone Face." His performances were likened to statuary. He later starred on the successful UNSOLVED MYSTERIES/NBC/CBS/1987-2002 that focused on dramatic recreations of such topics as missing persons, and unsolved mysteries.

Ed Sullivan, a deadpan journalist-turned-host of the successful Sunday night variety show THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW/CBS/1948-71 was also called "The Great Stone Face" & "The Old Stone Face" by reviewers. And long before Stack and Sullivan, silent film actor Buster Keaton was called the "The Great Stone Face (of Comedy)".
