Excellent actor, indeed.

From Wikipedia: "spent his senior year at the Choate School (now Choate Rosemary Hall) in Connecticut. He then entered Yale University, where he was a member of Skull and Bones, and served in the United States Marine Corps during World War II."

So he had a broad-based education when he began acting.
Hollywood thinking: He won acclaim for the Command Decision role on Broadway (per BBC), but the studio went with the current pretty boy, who wasn't nearly the actor Whitmore was.

He was the one with the gravelly voice wasn't he?

I always enjoyed watching any films he was in.

Voice not what I'd call gravelly, more resonant, but he did

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
