Character actor, Eli Wallach, was born Eli Herschel Wallach on Dec 7, 1915 in Brooklyn, NY. Wallach died at the age of 98 on Jun 24, 2014 in Manhattan, NY .
Dark-haired, plum-nosed American actor who always looked like he was about to say something forceful, even when he wasn't. Started sensationally in Baby Doll (after nearly 20 years as a stage actor), then played extrovert villains, with some nicely-played light comedy roles thrown in, sometimes opposite his wife, Anne Jackson (married 1948). The rasping voice was redolent of his native Brooklyn.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).
HONORS and AWARDS:.
However he won one Honorary Award in 2010 for a lifetime's worth of indelible screen characters .
