Prolific And Celebrated Actor Eli Wallach Dead At 98
(Undated) -- Eli Wallach, a veteran of stage, screen and television for more than 60 years, has died. The "New York Times" quotes Wallach's daughter Katherine, who says the actor passed away Tuesday at the age of 98. A multifaceted actor, Wallach's long list of acting credits include the movies, "The Magnificent Seven," "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," "The Misfits" and "The Godfather: Part III." Wallach was never nominated for an Academy Award but was presented with an honorary Oscar in 2010 just a month before his 95th birthday. He won a Tony Award in 1951 for his role in Tennessee Williams' "The Rose Tattoo."

The Brooklyn-born Wallach often appeared in roles alongside his wife Anne Jackson with whom he had three children, Peter, Katherine and Roberta. Wallach and Jackson had one of Hollywood's most enduring and successful marriages, lasting 66 years from 1948 until Wallach's death.
