      More than his movies, I liked his documentary's, which he conducted with a sort of sceptical morbidness. In a very funny way, nor taking himself too seriously. I will dearly miss him, he was one of the most under rated actors.
      In the league with William Holden and Ernest Borgnine.

            An excellent comparison.

            He was a great man and a solid actor; I wish he had been able to do more.

            Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                  He wasn't acting, he was the real thing.

                      One of my things I always wanted to do was meet him in person. RIP Gunny.

                              He was something that you can say about few people in entertainment, genuine. Yes he presented a contrived facade but he let you know through his body language and tone that underneath that there was a more fundamental truth. The psychological is very effective, it is irreverence for or satire of the rigid structure and discipline that we naturally rebel against but simultaneously is necessary for our survival in a world of unavoidably suffering. It could be described as the opposite of naivety combined with a rugged humor.
