Ben Gazzara

Sometimes you hear of an actor’s death and you think “Aw, that’s a shame, I liked that person.”

Sometimes you hear of an actor’s death and it hits you in the solar plexus, winding you, doubling you up and taking everything out of you.

Ben Gazzara: ‘Anatomy of a Murder’, ‘The Killing of a Chinese Bookie’, ‘Saint Jack’, ‘Tales of Ordinary Madness’, ‘The Big Lebowski’, ‘Summer of Sam’, ‘Dogville’.

Ben Gazzara: legend.

Rest in peace, sir. Cinema is poorer for your loss.



i.m. Ben Gazzara, 28 August 1930 – 3 February 2012
