Care to join in saying a fond farewell to award winning actor George Kennedy?

Asked by ibstubro (18804points) March 1st, 2016

George Kennedy

From Cool Hand Luke, to Naked Gun and the Airport franchise.

I best remember him as a character actor appearing in dozens of TV shows and films in the 70s and 80. He always seemed like such a steady, good guy.

RIP Mr. Kennedy.

He was in so many movies it’s hard to remember them all. A consummate actor. Never flashy, but always strong.

Good bye, George.

The first time I remember seeing him, he was a bad guy in Charade (1963) with an all-star cast: Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Walter Matthau and James Coburn. He was a great bad guy when given the role. Good night, George.

When I think of George Kennedy, the word stalwart comes to my mind. He always seemed such a strong, steady guy.

Like someone you dream of running for President of the United States.

He reminded me of Ward Bond. Great in a huge variety of characters and genres.

A rock, @filmfann.
Maybe Lee Marvin.

George Kennedy died four years ago. Why are you only mentioning him now?

filmfann's avatar

This question is four years old.

elbanditoroso's avatar

And he is still dead.

@filmfann It only just showed up here yesterday, hence my answer yesterday. I wasn’t even here four years ago.
