Thanks Mongo for posting the photo of Richard Widmark. He was a fine actor who could play villian or hero with equal authority. "Kiss Of Death", "Yellow Sky" "No Way Out", and "Road House". Richard showed his other side in "Panic In The Streets" Pickup On South Street" "Don`t Bother To Knock", and his hilarious visit to "I Love Lucy" Lucy decides to take a souvenier from Richard`s estate, and she gets locked in."The Tunnel Of Love" is not a favorite of mine, but it is watchable because Richard costars with Doris Day in a comedy.

A few images from Richard Widmark?s career, which spanned six decades and included fiendishly unstable characters in Film Noir as well as heroic, and not so heroic, characters in Westerns. Richard Widmark was a talented and versatile actor.

A friend sent along *a link to an interview* that RW did at the *British Film Institute* in 2002--it's quite good (thank you Ann H.!).

 

To show that *Richard Widmark* could smile again on more than one occasion, and not necessarily in that malevolent, Tommy Udo fashion...

...though there was that harrowing smirk he had in *No Way Out* with the underrated Linda Darnell & his lifelong friend Sidney Poitier...

...and one would have thought he'd have the world on a string in *Night and the City* as he snuggled up to lovely Gene Tierney...

...but then again, his characters were such restless creatures...no rest for the wicked...or wickedly good actors...

I thought this AP Photo was a rather touching tribute to Richard Widmark, the actor and the man.

The caption reads: Tourists walk past a memorial wreath left on Richard Widmark's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles on Wednesday March 26, 2008. Widmark, who made a sensational film debut as the giggling killer in "Kiss of Death" and became a leading man in "Broken Lance," "Two Rode Together" and 40 other films, died at his home in Roxbury after a long illness. He was 93. AP Photo - Nick Ut

Hey, Joe -- Thanks for the kudos. I appreciate it. I've been meaning to post on one of the Widmark threads because I'm a big fan of his thanks to film noir. He's rather similar to Robert Ryan (another huge fave of mine) in the fact that each were noted for playing despicable, nasty characters in film yet their true-to-life personalities were far removed from such hatred. I truly admire an actor who can portray something they are not and do so to near perfection. Widmark was one of the best at this and I dare say he never received the accolades he deserved because he played such characters. The same can be said of Ryan.

 

Hi, Celluloid Kid -- Love the posters! I always like seeing how a film was pitched to an audience.

 

Ciao, Whistlin' Gypsy -- Thanks for posting the Widmark "Star" tribute and photos. I really enjoy reading your comments on film. You're a very intelligent film-watcher and a wonderful writer. I admire your far-reaching tastes in film. It's quite impressive.
