Actor Eli Wallach dies

EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 Eli Wallach, the actor who made a lasting impression as the scuzzy bandit in "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", has died. Having grown up the son of Polish Jewish immigrants in an Italian-dominated neighborhood in New York, Wallach might have seemed an unlikely cowboy, but some of his best work was in Westerns. However, he also made a name on Broadway with roles in "Camino Real" and "The Rose Tattoo," for which he won a Tony in 1951, as well as a two-year run in "Mr. Roberts." His first movie was "Baby Doll" in 1956. The veteran's other major films included "How the West Was Won," "Mystic River" and "The Misfits" - in which he starred with Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe. But despite notable movies, Wallach said it was his portrayal of the villain Mr. Freeze on the "Batman" television show of the 1960s that generated the most fan mail. Wallach was 98 years old.
