RIP Tuco

Eli Wallach was a talented actor who was in two of the most memorable films ever The Good The Bad and The Ugly and The Magnificent Seven. Ironically, he claims the most fan mail he ever got was from playing Mr. Freeze on Batman. He also starred in a two part episode in Kojak.

Hopefully the movie channels will set up some tribute.

I would also like to state a RIP wish to Steve Rossi. He was a decent humble man who occasionally worked in the Catskills. He had an interesting show. I was somewhat surprised to read Mart Allen is still with us. May he live to be 100 and then some.

He was an okay actor.

The two films you mention are inferior remakes of Kurosawa films.

There are those who would disagree
with that assessment.

No doubt had he embraced Communism
when it was synonymous with Stalin
and Mao and cried victim you would be singing his praises. He was a well regarded Broadway actor and passed up plenty of films because
of his dedication to his craft.
