    An extremely intelligent man. He was an awsome person who knew his profession (acting)well. One of the best character actors that ever lived. Vic always gave his best acting performance in any show or movie he was in. It is a shame that he was never really honored or appreciated by hollywood. The world lost a true gem on the day Vic died so tragically. He will not be forgotten.

    Vic Morrow was one of the BEST! He was a wonderful actor in everything he did! I’ve seen him in several movies & tv shows & am still on a quest to see the rest of his work. He was so sexy..just oozing w charisma! A stupid, careless, AVOIDABLE tragedy claimed the lives of a truly talented man & 2 innocent children. May they rest in peace.

    I will never forget him in his star role as Sgt. Saunders in the hit series “Combat”. His death left a terrible void in the movie industry. He is greatly missed.
