I just watched him last night in the Godfather Part II; he made a career out of playing creepy looking, tormented types. Just about every movie he's been in is a classic.

Best actor film for film of all time.
Nice bowl of Crunchy Nut you got here, pretty expensive as I recall.

Godfather I & II, The Conversation, Dog Day Afternoon, The Deer Hunter...that's got to be the greatest actor's filmography of all time.

The only screen actor who could say "I only do classics." Well, him and James Dean, but I was never a fan of Giant.

who knows what he would have achieved (besides what he already did) if he was still alive today.
I fully support people doing drugs on the streets. I'm sick and tired of people being selfish by doing drugs in the privacy of their own homes. Do it on the streets where you can share with your friends and neighbors. It's the Christian thing to do.

I have nothing to add to this thread, except that he was a good actor, and underutilized in The Conversation.

Still waiting for Slackmo to delete this thread.

srsly?

btw how'd he die?
But among the jackals, the panthers, the bitch hounds, The apes, the scorpions, the vultures, the serpents, The yelping, howling, growling, crawling monsters, In the filthy menagerie of our vices, There is one more ugly, more wicked, more filthy! Although he makes neither great gestures nor great cries, He would willingly make of the earth a shambles And, in a yawn, swallow the world; He is Ennui! His eye watery as though with tears, He dreams of scaffolds as he smokes his hookah pipe. You know him reader, that refined monster, Hypocritish reader, my fellow, my brother!

i can't imagine anyone ever topping this. right place, right time, great talent. if he'd lived, there's no way he could've kept that up.
