'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."

My heart sank when I came across this article. He was an amazing actor and classy too. He was a true gentleman. I grew up with the Batman movies as a child and the first Batman is still my favorite movie, and it has been since I was 4years old. My prayers go out to his family. RIP, you know Michael is keeping it classy and pimpin it in up in heaven.

Sorry you little filthy vermin but I am sick of constantly reading your racist and offensive posts. Finding things like that funny does not mean someone has a good sense of humor..it's means they are a psycho douchebag! Grow up!!!!!

I was scanning late night TV this week and found old school reruns of Batman on the HUB channel. Campy, yet classic. RIP Mr. Gough.
