I just read that actor Henry Silva died on September 14th. He was 95 years old.
Henry Silva appeared in many movies, usually playing gangsters and assassins. He started his film career in the 50s and was still active up until at least 2012. He worked with everyone from Marlon Brando to Frank Sinatra to Charles Bronson and Robert Redford. Speaking for myself, I will always remember him as the heroin-addicted Billy Score, one of the most frightening villains of all time, in Sharky’s Machine.
(If you haven’t seen Sharky’s Machine before, don’t worry. Despite getting shot several times, Bernie Casey does survive and even makes a joke about how he’s going to have to get a new suit.)
