  8. Justin Thyme Says:

    Mr. Gazzara was great actor both in movies and on televsion. I especially remember his performances on television. I was quite impressed with his television work. He was able to portray a variety of characters and make them quite believeable! He shall be sorely missed in the entertainment field. I agree with one previous statement that he was never really recognized for the superb work he did. My deepest sympathy to his family. He is no longer, “running for his life!”
