    Spare us Gabler introductions. He tried to get some cheap back stage gossip about the stars’
    rivalry. He could have asked about direction,
    photography, locations, many other things from
    Eli Wallach.

    I agree with Edward. Who the hell cares if McQueen and Brynner got along. Was this the entire interview? No mention of Wallach’s most famous role, of Tuco in “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”? Unfortunately, not many remember The Magnificent Seven specifically for Wallach’s role.

    Typo above. I meant not “as” many remember Wallach for The Magnificent Seven as GBU. An excellent actor whom I could listen to for hours speaking on his long distinguished career in film.
