I usually don’t post on Saturdays, but as the legendary Sterling Hayden was born 100 years ago today, I couldn’t not post. Timothy appeared in three films with him: Hellgate (1952), Crime Wave (1954) and The Killing (1956), getting a chance to really interact with him only in the latter film. It’s too bad there weren’t more, but what we have is choice. Hayden was a true iconoclast, the very definition of “rugged individualism.” They just don’t make ’em like that anymore. Sir, we salute you.
Hellgate (1952), with Joan Leslie and James Anderson
Crime Wave (1954), with Phyllis Kirk, Gene Nelson and Mack Chandler
The Killing (1956), directed by Stanley Kubrick
I always love the second picture here, from CRIME WAVE, the one I call “Arresting David Bowie”
A great actor. Let’s not forget The Asphalt Jungle, The Godfather, and The Long Goodbye.
