"Baby Doll": Our first glimpse of legendary character actor, Eli Wallach

For my first official GCB blog entry, I would like to pay tribute to Hollywood legend, Eli Wallach, who passed away last week, at the age of 89. His screen debut in Baby Doll (1956) showed us all a glimpse of the talent that would ultimately make him one of the greatest character actors of our time. Below is the link to a beautiful video produced by Turner Classic Movies, featuring many of the highlights of his career. Knowing the kind of movie buff that Paco Malo was, it is highly unlikely that he would have let the opportunity to recognize Eli's contributions to the silver screen slip by.
