R.I.P.: Fans pay tribute to legendary movie badass Eli Wallach [photos, video]
Prolific actor Eli Wallach passed away yesterday. He was 98.
A self-styled journeyman actor, the versatile Mr. Wallach appeared in scores of roles, often with his wife, Anne Jackson. No matter the part, he always seemed at ease and in control, whether playing a Mexican bandit in the 1960 western “The Magnificent Seven,” a bumbling clerk in Ionesco’s allegorical play “Rhinoceros,” a henpecked French general in Jean Anouilh’s “Waltz of the Toreadors,” Clark Gable’s sidekick in “The Misfits” or a Mafia don in “The Godfather: Part III.”
Fans worldwide paid tribute on Twitter to the talented onscreen legend.
