Generosity... that was my first mistake.
I'm innocent of everything.
What a life!
I wonder if he had been eating a cannoli.
A great actor!
He will be missed, his shoes will be nearly impossible to fill.
RIP and a prayer for his loved ones and his many devoted fans...
Nice tagline you got there :-)
Also a SSgt and Medic in WWII.
He will live on in Tuco’s Law
Used to hate him because I didn’t like the characters he played. Then I grew up and realized what a great actor he was. One of the few educated actors in Hollywood. R.I.P.
One of the true Greats; there are so few left.
R.I.P. Eli Wallach.
It took Cinerama and a train to kill him in “How the West Was Won”. Saw it in the original format.
He also played a “weasely Mexican hombre” in How the West Was Won (1962).
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don’t talk.
Another “Greatest Generation”, Great Actor takes his final bow. RIP
I much preferred the Magnificent Seven
Wallach was magical to watch work
I was just thinking about him the other day. One of the giants. RIP.
Calvera: Somehow I don't think you've solved my problem.
Chris and Vin IIRC: Solving your problems isn't our line. - We deal in lead , friend
Is the pic in number 1, the kind of preview you were telling me about?
yes, it needs to be resized
Calvera “Ride on he said”!
Sorry to hear this.
Now Tuco’s gone along with Angel Eyes.
Blondie’s the only one left.
RIP, I’ll be blaring the “Good/Bad/Ugly” soundtrack today...
Great actor. Always believable in the roles he played.
This makes me angry. I’m gonna get my whip, oil it and teach Toby not to be the bearer of bad news.
Yes, yes. Good call!
He was blessed with a good, long life, had a great career, and influenced many people in the course of it.
His soul can look back now and say “I’ve run my race...and won it.”
We all go eventually; we should all hope to leave something good behind us in the course of our time here.
Another excellent movie.
He is missed already...
98 is a good run. http://www.deathlist.net/ had him at #3
It’s a UK based site so there are lot of British people on it.
Toby needs punishment. Harsh punishment.
He was an old man when Concetta Corleone poisoned his cannoli.
