Richard Widmark 1914 - 2008

one of the greatest actors that ever lived passed away today. his villians in early pulp films by directors like sam fuller and jules dassin were horrifying and real to viewers and carry still today. he seemed to carry the torche from cagney on through the 60s. it also seems to me that jack nicholson owes quite a bit to Widmark.
