OT: Eli Wallach Dies at 98

We're in the VT Sports summer doldrums right now, and I know we all love our Spaghetti Western GIFs when they pop up for various reasons, so I thought I'd mention this topic. Eli as Tuco in "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly" was just a great movie character. Eli did a great job selling that role in that movie. I don't remember him as much in "The Magnificant Seven" which is also a great movie, but he wasn't as much a central character there.

98, wow, any of us can only hope to live that long. He had been married to his wife for 66 years! That is something. Obviously Eli Wallach believed in his family and lived that until his death. An example for us all. Celebrate a great entertainer. I'll leave you with these:

Loved that guy. Called Eastwood "Blondie", which I guess was true, relatively speaking. I often wondered, having seen that movie so many times, if that was some kind of ad lib that just stuck.

A picture is worth a thousand words. A gif is worth a million.

That standoff is still epic as ever, each time I watch

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

It's all about The VPISU
VT '10, Born & Raised in the 804. Also go Keydets, Army Black Knights, NY Giants, NY Rangers, and ATL Braves.

It's almost unnerving how the 4th wall is broken...

He was funny as heck in Tough Guys with Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster.
