PostSubject: Eli Wallach Dies   Wed Jun 25, 2014 9:19 am

Eli Wallach, a character actor best known for his supporting roles in the Western classics "The Magnificent Seven" and "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly," died Tuesday at the age of 98.

Born in Brooklyn in 1915, Wallach attended college at the University of Texas and earned a master's degree in education at City College of New York. He served as an Army medic in World War II and made his debut on Broadway in 1945.

Wallach won a Tony Award in 1951 for his performance as Alvaro in Tennessee Williams's "The Rose Tattoo," and made his film debut five years later in the Elia Kazan-directed "Baby Doll."

But his two most memorable roles were those of Mexican bandits. In 1960's "The Magnificent Seven," Wallach played Calvera, who regularly raids a Mexican village for food until its inhabitants are forced to turn to the eponymous characters for protection. In 1966, Wallach played Tuco opposite Clint Eastwood in "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly."

Wallach is survived by his wife of 66 years, Anne Jackson, their three children, and grandnephew A.O. Scott, a New York Times film critic.
The New York Times was the first to report Wallach's death.

I just saw this on the news and he looks really familiar. That usually means that the person was in one of my shows. Was he ever in LHOP Dave?
