Favorite Movie Character


Recommended Posts

I forgot one & man, it's a heavyweight too? The character that *"The King: Clark Gable"-(1901-60) played in his & Marilyn's final film: "The Misfits" (1961-released for him anyway, posthumously & In my opinion I think "The King of Hollwoods Golden Age"-voted that crown officially in 1938! Stretched as an actor like never before. He, unlike his pal & he had a bit of jealousy about his talent as well>"The Great: Spencer Tracy"-(1900-67) *Gable was a limited actor. Ever see 1937's "Parnell?" (*1/2) As was *John Wayne. But when the role/character fit, like in his final, as an aging cowboy in *John Huston's very sad & heavy drama. The role fit like a glove. He deserved at least a 4th ACADEMY AWARD nomination for-it? Some say that it was that he had to drop quite a bit of wgt. very-quickly for the character & that helped his early death of a sudden heart attack? He also did some of his own stunts. Seemingly trying to fight back at aging & some also say it was MM's fault, for taking so long, being late,etc She alledgedly thought she in essence killed him!? & ever since she was a little girl, she not only had a crush on *Gable, but pretended he was her real father! & people from that set, Eli Wallach is 88 now! Say that he showed a rare patience with her, that he usually would not with other(s) He was also elated about having a son. Of which he did'nt live to see "Alive" anyway!? But his character-(although the horse jazz, not cool!) but otherwise, one of the last of the rugged individualist! His name was Gaylord...
