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."

What a great actor! I have enjoyed watching his work over the years. I guess all good things still have to eventually come to an end. He will be missed. RIP.

He was a great actor. Remember in Berserk when he got a railrod spike through the skull? Great actor.

No one can better embody the character of Alfred than Michael Gough. Any attempts are pale comparisons.
