Richard Widmark dies

Very sad news today for the world of cinema.

The great actor Richard Widmark has passed away.

We always liked Richard as an actor and the sense of menace and complexity he brought to his characters.

He seemed perfect from Noirish movies and some of his greatest performances were played out in that genre. In our view his greatest work in that genre was in his breakthrough role as an uber-psychopath in the great Kiss Of Death and of course later in one of Sam Fuller’s masterpieces Pickup On South Street, as a pickpocket with complicated decisions to make.

All condolences to Richard’s family.

Hollywood actor Richard Widmark, who often portrayed killers, cops and Western gunslingers on the silver screen, has died after a long illness. The actor was 93.

Widmark’s wife, Susan Blanchard, said that he died at his home in Connecticut, in the US, on Monday.

He made his film debut in 1947 as a giggling killer in the movie Kiss Of Death and became a leading man in 1954 film Broken Lance, 1961’s Two Rode Together and 40 other films.

The actor – who was born in Sunrise, Minnesota in 1914 – also starred in a number of Film Noir roles and appeared in Madigan, a 1968 film with Widmark starring as a loner detective that became a short-lived TV series.

Widmark also spent some time behind the camera as a producer and director during his long career.
