    I think he should be best remembered as J.Cobb in “The Shootest” with John Wayne.

    As far as I remember, on one interview about the movie, Burt Reynolds explained that those two guys weren’t movie actors, they were real people he met some where and he called them for the part. They did great, since this was the stronger part of the film.
    Actors, sometimes are not made. They are born.
    He will be missed.

  4. mario boulet Says:

    I went and visited his memorial page. HE was an accomplished actor with academic formation.
    He also worked in other films.
    Still, I strongly believe that this man was a great actor.
    Great guy!!

    My mother, Elizabeth Finkler went to the Pasadena Playhouse with him. She remembered him well and was always delighted to see him in a production.

    So what is a nice wage for a industrial electrician? I have always wanted
    to do something similar although not sure whether it’s worth the money for having the potential to kill myself on a regular basis
