So said Oscar (from "The Picture of Dorian Gray"):

@bijouxbroussard Yes! He was Pontias Pilate in King of Kings.

Having been introduced to Ireland by actress and former co-star Angela Lansbury, Hatfield lived at Ballinterry House, Rathcormac, County Cork from the early 1970s. He purchased the structure to save it from demolition and he spent 24 years restoring and renovating it. A keen collector of antiques and art, he referred to Ballinterry House as a painting which he never would finish. He died in his sleep of a heart attack at a friend's home, aged 81, after celebrating Christmas dinner.

Hatfield never married. His long-time close friend and colleague Maggie Williams was heir of both Ballinterry House and his collection. She maintained the historic Irish country home exactly as it was at the time of Hatfield's death. The house was sold in late 2006, and the entire contents of the Hurd Hatfield Collection were sold at an auction on the premises by Country House Antique & Fine Art Auction in March 2007.

At the time of his death, Hatfield was writing his autobiography. He was cremated, and his ashes scattered.
@JSul3 Yes. He also guest starred on two of my favorites episodes of The Wild, Wild West; “The Night of The Man-Eating House” and "The Night of The Undead".

Speaking of disappearing, he also said re orphans: "To lose one parent...may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness."
