One of my fave new entries

Cazale and Dame Meryl in the Seventies
In Thomson's latest edition is one for John Cazale, finally.

Perhaps, Thomson felt obliged because HBO produced a v good, short doc on Cazale.

Fun fact about Cazale:  Cazale was primarily a stage actor and he acted in only five films, every single one of those films were nominated for Best Picture, and three of them won.

Cazale died of bone cancer in 1978, his sweetie, Meryl Streep, there at his side.  He was my age, forty-three.

My fave performance of his would have to be Dog Day Afternoon but I am sure most of my friends probably prefer his Fredo from the Godfather pictures.
