For the last few years, the man credited as “The Oldest Living Actor” Eli Wallach, born December 7, 1915, died today of natural causes. He’s most notable for his roles in films such as The Magnificent Seven, and The Godfather: Part III as well as one other that hardly even needs to be said.

For me and many others, he’s always held a distinct place in cinematic history due to his role as Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez or rather “The Ugly” in Sergio Leone’s 1966 Spaghetti Western, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

After having invested so much time in Death Note, it seemed an interesting idea of a grim reaper-type figure just following you around all day. Even weirder is the idea that death would show up to tell you that you’re dead and now, you gotta go with him.

Death is a pretty wacky thing. You’re born, you start to die, then you die. What a cycle! So it’s not that crazy for the personification of death to have a few weird tendencies himself. Death comes in many forms, but a lot of times he just looks like a guy. Below is a short list of appearances Death has made in movies, ranging from the awesome…to the not so awesome. Continue reading
