What a great actor, such a shame another one has passed. This year will be remembered as the year all the greats moved on.

RIP Gene.

Of course the man is known but the only movies I can remember him in were Blazzing saddles (Which I hated) and Charlie and the chocolate factory which he was excellent in. A good actor that deserved better roles.

RIP
