Michael Sarrazin: Rest in Peace

I read today that Michael Sarrazin had died…

He was one of my favorite actors when I was a pre-teen and a teenager…I had looked him up on IMDB.com not too long ago to see what he was doing…

He hit fairly big in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, but his career never really took off from there…

His eyes were unforgettable…

He missed his big chance when his studio would not release him to do “Midnight Cowboy” and Jon Voight got the part instead…

I remember Michael Sarrazin well from “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They”, “Sometimes a Great Notion” and the TV Mini Series”Frankenstein:  The True Story”.   He made many other films and TV appearances that will live on….

    When I read his obit in the Times this morning, I was quite sad. He didn’t seem to work as often as aged so, in my mind, he remains “forever young.” Beautiful man and a good actor, too.

    Yes, he remains young to me, too; tho he was never one of my favorites, I liked him, especially in They Shoot Horses, don’t They?–a movie I found very disturbing.
    And HEY, here’s a Paul Newman movie I never saw???? Hard to believe, but you better know I’ll watch it soon!!
