RIP Eli ! A big actor who was just fanstastic in ‘The Bad and The Ugly’.

RIP. Another Jewish act

What a great actor he was. Strangely we just got the feeling we should watch The Holiday tonight, one of his more recent films, and a great family romantic comedy. What a career he’s had that stretches decades. Hollywood’s finest.
