(July 31, 1935 – April 7, 2015)
Folks, we’ve lost another great character actor. Geoffrey Lewis, who made such a huge impression in so many films, particularly those of Clint Eastwood, passed away yesterday. He had a long, varied career, and had to be one of the most dependable guys around. He’s always terrific.
Both images are from Thunderbolt And Lightfoot (1974). In the bottom one, that’s him to the right, along with Jeff Bridges, George Kennedy and Eastwood. If you haven’t seen this film, or if it’s been a while, go find it.
I’m sure a lot of the news today will focus on his daughter, Juliette Lewis. That’s fine, as long as we don’t forget his many wonderful performances.
