Vic Morrow

Recommended Posts

Just read that Vic Morrow would have been 85 years old today. Can't believe that. He was a great actor. I still watch re-runs of Combat television show. Do you have any favorite movies or tv appearances that Vic Morrow made?

Morrow vividly played a high school punk opposing Glen Ford in THE BLACKBOARD JUNGLE. Pretty good movie IMO.

You beat me to it, rover! I agree. He was fabulous in that role; he was very underrated, imho. And his daughter not only inherited his looks, she inherited his tremendous talent. And she too, is underrated......................

He played a similar role in KING CREOLE. His opposite portrayal in GOD'S LITTLE ACRE showed he shouldn't be typecast. He was a really fine performer who lives on thanks to film.

 

I don't think it would be out of line to wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

He'll be remembered for Jungle and Combat, but was always a memorable presence onscreen. Got a rare chance to show his lighter side in The Bad News Bears.

Love the show COMBAT. I saw on youtube the only interview Vic Morrow ever did. It was from back in the 1960's. Great video. He seemed like a quiet, very nice man. I like the vintage stuff you can see on youtube.

My personal favorite Vic Morrow film was the little-seen "Portrait of a Mobster" in which he played the legendary gangster Dutch Schultz. He also made a great war picture that was aired not too long ago called "Men In War". He was a great character actor. Always was one of my favorites.

I don't know why they don't. I don't think they ever have. On the DVD, I recently contacted Warner Archive inquiring about the DVD release and they said something about "clearance issues" precluding its release. I hope it's resolved soon, it's a great picture.

When is TCM going to show Portrait of a Mobster?  It is one of the few Vic Morrow films I've not seen yet.   Great actor.  Wish TCM would showcase his films a bit more.
