Default Pappy O'Daniel slips into eternity

One of my favorites, Charles Durning dead at 89.

Quote:
LOS ANGELES Charles Durning grew up in poverty, lost five of his nine siblings to disease, barely lived through D-Day and was taken prisoner at the Battle of the Bulge.
His hard life and wartime trauma provided the basis for a prolific 50-year career as a consummate Oscar-nominated character actor, playing everyone from a Nazi colonel to the pope to Dustin Hoffman's would-be suitor in "Tootsie."
.
.
He was among the first wave of U.S. soldiers to land at Normandy during the D-Day invasion and the only member of his Army unit to survive. He killed several Germans and was wounded in the leg. Later he was bayoneted by a young German soldier whom he killed with a rock. He was captured in the Battle of the Bulge and survived a massacre of prisoners.
In later years, he refused to discuss the military service for which he was awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Hearts.
"Too many bad memories," he told an interviewer in 1997. "I don't want you to see me crying."

One of my favorite scenes:

He was working right up to the end. Loved him, he will be missed.

He did it all except play the lead. Always saw movies if he was in them, BECAUSE he was in them! R.I.P. Mr. Durning...

He was one of the very few that although he could be in a stinker movie, he never played a bad part.

Among the top of my favorite character actors of all time, and generally speaking, I like most good character actors better than lead actors, because their roles are frequently more interesting.

One of his best roles is in the now mostly forgotten and dated movie (late 1970's) called "Twilight's Last Gleaming" in which he plays the President. Movie also stars Burt Lancaster and Richard Widmark. Worth a look for those who have never seen it.

His song in the "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas" as the governor was one of the funniest, and it is so typical of many politicians.



This clip is a little longer than the one in the OP.

While that is a great line it does not belong to Pappy

I'm familiar with the celebrities go in threes belief, but is there a time frame as in a matter of days or a week or what?
