RIP Eli Wallach

Eli Wallach, star of the name-sake(ish) of this blog, has died (aged 98).

He starred in the Magnificent Seven and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly along with many other films in the 50s and 60s and continued into the 21st Century; including one of my wife's favourite films 'The Holiday'.

Shamefully I never made the connection between Arthur Abbott in The Holiday and Tuco in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!

Amazingly in 60 years he was never even nominated for an Oscar (apparently, as wikipedia would say, [citation needed]) and only got one Golden Globe (again - maybe!)

Check the story out on BBC News.
