Wallach may be gone, but I certainly won’t forget the actor who played Mr. Freeze in Adam West starring Batman show, or his roles in The Godfather 3, The Magnificent Seven, and How the West Was Won among others, but of course the biggest role I will remember Wallach for his is role in one of the best films of all time in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly playing Tuco (The Ugly). Eli Wallach played the role of Tuco with zeal as well delivering some of the best lines in the film like “When you have to shoot, shoot. Don’t talk” and “There are two types of people in this world my friend. Those with a rope around their neck, and those who do the cutting.”.
As the New York Times says, and I agree Eli Wallach was a great character actor and will be missed.
