Academy's Special 2014 Honorees: Veterans Belafonte, Carrière, Miyazaki and - Finally - O'Hara

29 August 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »

That Orange Is the New Black marathon just might “shorten your sentence,” if you catch our drift.

In a new study conducted by the University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain, and published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, participants who watched “three or more hours a day of television viewing had a twofold higher risk of mortality than those reporting less than one hour a day.”

Eli Wallach (1915-2014)

25 June 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The great character actor Eli Wallach didn't quite make it to his centennial, dying at 98½ but at least he lived long enough to get an Honorary Oscar a few years back. The Academy honored him for "a lifetime's worth of indelible screen characters" even though they'd never nominated him.

I'm sure AMPAS didn't mean to include "Mr Freeze" on the Batman TV series as one of those characters but that's the one that's indelible for me. Is that wrong? When I was a child that show was always on through the magic of syndication. But Mr. Freeze was recast frequently (curiously enough two other Oscar favorites also played the chilly bad guy: three time nominee Otto Preminger and Oscar winner George Sanders). They rarely showed episodes in order so the memories of the faces get all jumbled up. 

He made a lot of career noise with his onscreen debut in »

Eli Wallach: A Personal Remembrance

25 June 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Cinema Retro Editor-in-Chief Lee Pfeiffer with Eli Wallach at The Players in New York City.

 

By Lee Pfeiffer

Cinema Retro mourns the loss of Eli Wallach, the prolific actor of screen, stage and television, who passed away Tuesday in his New York City home. He was 98 years old. Wallach was one of the last of the Hollywood legends. He rarely enjoyed a leading role but was considered to be one of the most respected character actors of the post-wii era. He was as diversified as a thespian could be and would play heroes, villains and knaves with equal ease. For retro movie lovers, his two most iconic performances were as the Mexican bandit Calvera in John Sturges' classic 1960 film The Magnificent Seven and as Tuco, the charismatic rogue bandit in Sergio Leone's landmark 1966 production of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Although he never won or was »

Eli Wallach, 'The Good, the Bad & the Ugly' Star, Dead at 98

He played cotton-gin owners, military officers, monsignors, rabbis, truck drivers, Shakespearean heroes  — even a Batman villain. But Eli Wallach, who passed away at age 98 due to causes unknown, is best known to a generation of moviegoers as the ultimate bandolero-wearing bandito, thanks to two iconic roles: Calvera, the leader of the frontier thugs who terrorize a Mexican village in The Magnificent Seven (1960); and Tuco, the "ugly" of Sergio Leone's epic Spaghetti Western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966).

Actor Eli Wallach Dead at 98

“You never had a rope around your neck. Well, I’m going to tell you something. When that rope starts to pull tight, you can feel the Devil bite your ass.”

A shame when they go so young!

98! –and his last role was just four years ago! Eli Wallach had such a long and memorable career beginning with Baby Doll in 1956. It was always nice seeing him in more recent films like Eastwood’s Mystic River and in the back of my mind I would think about the great villains he played like Tuco in The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, Calvera in The Magnificent Seven, and even Mr. Freeze on TV’s Batman! He was a great actor and true gentleman who, fortunately for us, led a long and active life. Wallach enjoyed a long, loving relationship with his wife of 66 years, actress Anne Jackson and is also survived by three children, »

Eli Wallach Has Died at the Age of 98

The first time I probably saw Eli Wallach was in the 1960s "Batman" television show as Mr. Freeze, but I don't remember anything from those episodes other than how it looked. The first time I saw Wallach and remember him from a role in a movie is probably as Don Altobello in Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather: Part III. But Wallach's most memorable role, for me at least, is undoubtedly as Tuco in Sergio Leone's iconic spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Today we learn Wallach is as we will remember him as he died Tuesday, June 24, at the age of 98. His death was confirmed by his daughter Katherine. Wallach's career spanned more than 60 years and also included films such as Elia Kazan's Baby Doll, Clint Eastwood's Mystic River, John Sturgess' The Magnificent Seven, John Huston's The Misfits and the massive ensemble »

Eli Wallach Has Died, Aged 98

25 June 2014 3:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

United Artists

Veteran Hollywood actor Eli Wallach has died, aged 98.

One of the stars of The Magnificent Seven and The Good The Bad And The Ugly (quite possibly The star of that movie), his death was confirmed by his daughter Katherine in the NY Times.

Wallach was well known for his villainous roles in westerns during his 60-year career – also starring in How The West Was Won and The Misfits.

His character in the movie was the bandit leader Calvera, the nemesis of the eponymous ‘seven’ gunslingers, who were led by Yul Brynner. The movie was a western remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, regarded by many as one of the most influential films of all time.

Wallach was never nominated for an Oscar but received an honourary statue in 2011 for, “effortlessly inhabiting a wide range of characters, while putting his inimitable stamp on every role”.

His other iconic role was as Tuco, »

"Eli Wallach, who was one of his generation’s most prominent and prolific character actors in film, onstage and on television for more than 60 years, died on Tuesday," reports Robert Berkvist for the New York Times. "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."

Eli Wallach in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

He was known for his roles in The Magnificent Seven, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, The Misfits and How The West Was Won, but Eli Wallach was an actor who could turn his hand to anything, a true Hollywood great who became known as 'the chameleon' over the course of his 64 year career. Now he has died at the age of 98 and tributes are pouring in from those who knew him.

The versatile star initially studied education but found his way into acting through the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theatre in New York, and soon got the bug. Theatre remained his first love but he starred in over a hundred films and also found time to appear in many of the most popular television dramas of the 20th century, from Murder, She Wrote to Law & Order.

In memoriam: Eli Wallach

25 June 2014 12:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Eli Wallach, star of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, has sadly passed away at the age of 98.

News

We're sad to report that Eli Wallach, perhaps best known for his scintillating turn as the bandit Tuco in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly has sadly passed away.

A veteran of the stage as well as a master in front of the camera, Wallach amassed a fine collection of work that began all the way back in the 1940s when he made his Broadway debut. A lover of the stage, Wallach would star in a number of Broadway productions and was rewarded with a Tony Award in 1951 for his role in Tennessee Williams's play, The Rose Tattoo.

His versatility later saw Wallach move forward into film, making his debut in 1956 film Baby Doll, a role that would propel him to greater heights as he later starred in 1960's The Magnificent Seven, »
