Left impression as the awful headmaster in 'Scent of a Woman'

You recognized the face, if not the name. James Rebhorn was a nonpareil character actor who played a wide variety of roles who left a definite mark with TV and movie audiences. He was memorable as the arrogant headmaster in Al Pacino's "Scent of a Woman" or the scheming secretary of defense in "Independence Day." Rebhorn died last week after a brief illness. He was 65 years old.

Tall and lanky, James Rebhorn had a face that served him well as either a villain or corrupt politician. Other notable film roles were in 'My Cousin Vinny' in 1992 and 'The Game' in 1997.
