    Whatever happened to running an obituary instead of reporting the twitter postings of attention wh(or)es?

    Amazing actor. He was truly the Man of La Mancha. The greatest Don Quixote ever!

  • Allen

    A true loss. Will forever picture him as that great king Henry II, a true tempest on and off the screen. The World is diminished by his passing. Rest in peace, you were like a great friend.

      Hilarious film….

  • Ricardo

    A real class act, a true artist of the theater and films and kind of weird too. He will be missed as all the greats are passing away and there are none to replace them?

  • Zappa

    Now I will never get him to be in my movie…..

  • Carl

    One of his greatest roles was the role of General Tantz in the film “Night of the Generals.” Along with Omar Sharif and Donald Pleasance it was a terrific movie, I watch it every time it’s on.

  • Richard Gibbard

    The man sure had a good run. I don’t even want to think about who could be nest.
