Richard Widmark: 1914-2008

Richard Widmark, who received an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe for his film debut as the sadistic killer Tommy Udo in the film noir classic Kiss of Death, passed away Monday at the age of 93.

The prolific actor was equally adept at playing both villains (No Way Out, Don't Bother to Knock, Pickup on South Street) and heroes (Panic in the Streets, Night and the City, The Alamo). Other notable films he appeared in include How the West Was Won, Judgment at Nuremberg, Murder on the Orient Express, Against All Odds and Madigan, a role he reprised on television.
