Richard Widmark, rest in peace
As a blogger, there's no worse feeling than leaving the hacienda for a few hours and then hearing on the radio as you drive away that there was a major movie death. Today, that was tough customer Richard Widmark. My favorite Widmark performance is in Sam Fuller's Pick Up on South Street, where he plays a local criminal mixed up in international espionage. He was a favorite of the true film connoisseur.
