Subject: Obit: Jack Elam - RIP
Sadly another of the old-timers has passed on. Jack Elam who appeared in so many Westerns has died some weeks short of his 87th birthday. Although never a leading man, his performances on screen were something to be treasured by movie fans. Who can forget the great scene with the fly in 1968 movie "Once Upon a Time in the West"? He was one of the most memorable individuals in films mainly because of his craggy face and will be remembered when many will be forgotten. Farewell Jack, you were one of mny favourites.
