Veteran actor Richard Jordan played Uncle Howard.

In a career spanning 4 decades, he would be seen in such hit movies as "Logan's Run" (1976), "Raise the Titanic" (1980), "Dune" (1984), "The Mean Season" (1985) and "The Hunt for Red October" (1990).

In 1993, his health began to fail and he was tragically diagnosed with brain cancer. He was filming The Fugitive in April 1993 when his terminal illness forced him to withdraw. He died on August 30, 1993.
Thanks to Michael
When Brantley is in the office of a recently vacated 'suit' enjoying the view from on high, the phone rings-he answers. During the conversation concerning boxcars, shipping and the like, he puts his feet on the desk. Notice the black ash stains on the bottom of his shoes, from stomping out cig butts during breaks in filming (Fox was a smoker at the time).

Herbert Ross, the director, sadly died in October 2001 after a career that spanned more than three decades.
