'Alfred' from 'Batman' Movies -- Dead at 94

3/17/2011 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Gough -- the actor who played Alfred the butler in four major "Batman" movies -- has died at the age of 94.

Michael Gough Dead

Gough has one hell of a resume dating back to the '40s ... including "Out of Africa" and "The Boys from Brazil."

But one of Gough's most impressive accomplishments -- he was the ONLY person who didn't make a complete ass out of himself in the 1997 disaster "Batman and Robin."

I thought he died years ago. So on the one hand I'm sad to hear he has died, but on the other hand I'm happy he had a full life and many more years than I gave him credit for!
