Actor Vito Scotti, known as the man of a thousand faces, died of cancer on June 5th, 1996. He was the most frequent visitor to Gilligan's Island. He guest starred in four episodes as the WWII Japanese sailor and as Dr. Balinkoff. He was to be scheduled to portray a pirate in the 4th season (before the show was canceled). He will be sadly missed by all, but will continue to make us laugh as his characters will live forever.
