While flipping through ‘The Hindu’ newspaper three days ago, one article got all my attention. The article was about the passing away of Eli Wallach, the man who played ‘Ugly’ in the iconic movie, ‘The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly’. Who can forget one of his famous quotes in the movie, “When you have to shoot, shoot, don’t talk”?
He seems to have had a wonderful career in both stage and screen, but I think most people including myself will remember him for his role as Tuco in this movie. He aptly titled his autobiography as ‘The Good, the Bad, and Me’!
Tuco’s character is the most interesting among the three main characters in the movie. Eli Wallach made it lively and beautiful with memorable and sometimes funny quotes.
Gotta watch that movie again! 🙂
