An amazing actor. I'm gonna need to watch some more of his films. He never fails to bring a huge grin on my face even in just that short clip attached to the post. His voice, I loved his voice and that attitude in his eyes. What a fricken awesome presence.
Just found this gem on Wikipedia:
... Wallach also mentioned that director Sergio Leone was notoriously careless regarding the safety of his actors during dangerous scenes. It was during filming that Wallach accidentally drank from a bottle of acid that a film technician had carelessly placed next to his soda bottle. He spat it out immediately, but was furious because his vocal cords could have been damaged if he had swallowed any of it. Leone gave him some milk to wash out his mouth and apologized for the incident, but also commented that accidents do happen.
I wish I'd known about his autobiography earlier. I'm kicking myself for not keeping up with him. I wonder if one day Benicio del Toro will reprise any of Wallach's roles?
