Eli Wallach

Actor

Born - 7 December 1915, Brooklyn, New York City, USA
Died - 24 June 2014

Dark-haired, plum-nosed, narrow-faced American actor in incisive roles. Equally happy as the focus of the action, in witty comedy roles or as charismatic villains, notably in a couple of classic westerns. On Broadway from 1945, TV from 1949, Wallach made a late but striking film debut in Baby Doll (1956) and was never out of work thereafter, racking up more than 80 movie credits and acting until his mid nineties: The Lineup (1958), The Magnificent Seven (1960), The Misfits (1961), The Victors (1963), Lord Jim (1965), The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), Mackenna's Gold (1969), Cinderella Liberty (1973), The Sentinel (1976), The Hunter (1980), Sam's Son (1984), Tough Guys (1986), Nuts (1987), The Two Jakes (1990), Night and the City (1992), The Associate (1996), Uninvited (1999), Mystic River (2003), The Hoax (2006), Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) and The Ghost (2010), his last. He was married to actress Anne Jackson (1925-2016) for 66 years. He was awarded an honorary Oscar in 2010.
