rod steiger

oh my. this man is an unbelievable actor. who else could match sidney poitier? who else could convincingly play marlon brando's brother? while filming the eighth biggest film grosser of all time, 1965's 'doctor zhivago', not only was rod steiger on set for 12 months, but he got to kiss julie christie.
in 1964 he starred in 'the pawnbroker.' though i grew up fearing this film i am now looking forward to the experience.

We come. We go. And in between we try to understand.- rod steiger
