Eli Wallach plays The Shah of Khwarezm in GENGHIS KHAN (1965)

Eli passed away this past Tuesday. Eli didn't do many PEPLUM type films. In fact, I think this his only PEPLUM film. And I'm not definitely not a fan of it (I thought it was interminable) so I have to say that Eli's presence in the PEPLUM universe is minimal. Regardless, he was a great 'character' actor in other films. Loved him in almost everything he did even if the movie was terrible. He was unforgettable in THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, an 'unofficial PEPLUM film'. RIP, Tuco.

I'll be back soon enough!
