    'Good, the Bad and the Ugly' Star Eli Wallach Dies at 98

    I've seen Mr. Wallach in a few films, but of course my favorite of his would be "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly." His character Tuco was extremely memorable. I'm a fan of Clint Eastwood's westerns, but in GBU, my favorite character wasn't portrayed by Clint, but by Eli. All it takes is for me to listen to "The Ecstasy of Gold" and I can instantly picture Tuco in the Graveyard searching frantically for the gold.



    Mr. Wallach lived to be almost 100, just coming up short by 2 years. Plus from what I read on IMDB, he was married for 66 years. Most couples are lucky to make it to 5.

    R.I.P. Mr. Wallach. :(  I shall watch GBU later today in honor of your memory.

    RIP. I remember him more from my mother's favourite western, The Magnificent Seven.
