A tremendous shame - I always enjoyed his movies - one of the last of a fast dwindling era. Many memories of the man but I always liked his turn in Cheyenne Autumn.
So, a sad day, not least because dear old Mollie Sugden has gone too, but 97 isn't a bad age.
Phew.. looks like a big update for the DDP tomorrow then!

Interesting to see that:
1) He was born in Gary, Indiana, just like Michael Jackson
2) He died exactly 5 years after his co-star in "On The Waterfront", Marlon Brando...
According to the LA Times article, he was born in Chicago, and only moved to Gary, Indiana, when 5.
Interestingly, I notice that his website is under construction, with an update due 2009. Wont be much to update now!
