    No disrespect intended, but my first reaction was surprise that he was still alive. I had the same thought when Red Buttons died the other day.

    RIP to them both.

    Along with the other roles mentioned here, I also liked him as the asshole grampa in the "Problem Child" movies.

    I'll always remember him for one line as Ryan O'Neal's dad in "So Fine."

    Sirs, Madames,

    "Frank, lissen to me. This case is a money-maker." (Profanities abounding)

    Just great in The Verdict, one of my top ten of all time. 16 times viewed at the theatre alone.

    153 credits ... amazing. An amazing run in the 70s with Shampoo, Heaven Can Wait, Being there, All the President's Men.


    YHS, etc

    "I'll tell you something. This country is going to the dogs. You know, it used to be when you bought a politician, that son of a bitch stayed bought." - Warden in "Used Cars."
  7. Friend --
    He was the only thing about that movie that was authentically Boston, except for the location shots. That silent shot of him when the jury foreman asks if they're limited on the amount of the award is just priceless.
    "He's the prince of fucking darkness, that's who he is."
    You're right. Terrific film. Was on FXM last night.

  9. If I'm recalling correctly ...

    "Woodword, Bernstein, you're on the Watergate story. Now don't fuck it up!" (He says as he's walking by.)
  10. Also:

    National Editor: I've got some top guys here, sitting around...
    Warden: "You said it right. Sitting around."

  12. Amazing bio,
    Promising young middleweight fighter -- one bout against a young Charles Durning no less -- who joins the Navy, patrols the Yangtzee before WWII, does Merchant Marine duty, asks for an on-deck assignment and, when he doesnt get it, joins the 101st Airborne, breaks a leg before Normandy and starts studying drama in the hospital.
