Rod Steiger is dead

Beefy and intense in his portrayals on screen, acclaimed actor Rod Steiger passed away on Tuesday, July 09, 2002 at the age of 78. I remember him for his Oscar-winning role in In the Heat of the Night and the miserably boring horror wannabe The Amityville Horror. I've also added The Pawnbroker and No Way To Treat A Lady to my growing list of movies that I need to catch someday. But who can forget him in his début as the elder brother of the method maestro Marlon Brando in Elia Kazan's masterpiece, On The Waterfront (known to Bollywood audiences as Ghulam).
