July 22, 2014 "Contrast his roles in "Magnificent Seven" and "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" with "How to Steal a Million" -- he was so brilliant. But my favorite memory of him is an appearance on "The Tonight Show" about... I think 1969-1970. He talked about how excited his children were when it looked as though Calvera had won on "M7," and how bad he felt for them... though with humor, of course... when it turns out to have been a false victory. My favorite moment, though, was when he recited a little poem that has been close to my heart ever since. I can't remember if he said he wrote it or not, but I love it! "A friend is not a fellow who is taken in by sham. A friend's a guy who knows your faults and doesn't give a damn!" Blessings on you and your family, Mr. Wallach. You are missed."
July 15, 2014 "I loved him best in "The Holiday" and watch that movie over and over again. Although a total stranger, I felt close to him because of the character he portrayed in the film. Please know that others loved him and are thinking of you at this time." - Audrey Johnson (Ellicott City, MD)
July 11, 2014 "Eli Wallach was a acting legend. He will always be remembered for the outstanding roles he performed. No one could play the memorable characters like he did. Now it's time for him to rest. An Admirer of his talents"
July 10, 2014 "To the Wallach Family; May all of you find peace at this very sorrowful time. Your loss is felt by his many, many fans who extend sincere sympathy to his loved ones. An admirer of this gentle man--"
July 08, 2014 "Over the years this outstanding actor entertained us through his myriad of great roles. His portrayal of Calvera in the Magnificant Seven was one of my favorites. He will be missed by his many, many admirers. A Fan"
