Eli Wallach. Actor. 1915 – 2014

The Guv’nor writes…


Many of this weekend’s newspapers paid tribute – and rightly so – to the great the Eli Wallach.


Like many of the leading actors he worked with, Wallach filled the cinema with the character he was playing, as he did with his work on stage.

He and the great Clint Eastwood working together are a master class for young actors. Two completely different styles creating together a huge reality and excitement.

(In that film we mustn’t forget Lee Van Cliff – more on him another day).


With Yule Bryner Mr Wallach filled the screen and dominated it.

Thank you Mr Wallach on behalf of your millions of admirers for everything you gave us, we will never forget you, you are part of our lives.

One of the cinema’s greats.
