Yet another loss to Hollywood history. The death of Henry Silva has been announced. Henry died on 14th September,2022, at the age of 95.

Remembered as one of the best villainous characters in Hollywood movies, I profiled him just under a year ago, on 6th October,2021.
A fine actor whom I’ll always remember in THE TALL T, THE BRAVADOS and THE MANCHURIAN  CANDIDATE.

A New Yorker who was a member of the famed Actors Studio, there is a striking contrast between his utterly heinous character in “The Tall T”, and his sympathetic portrayal in “The Bravados”.

  1. One of those unforgettable faces.
    He played “Mother” in “A Hatful Of Rain” on Broadway in 1955-56, and repeated the role in the film version (1957).
