strother martin in john huston's the asphalt jungle, 1950, in his second film appearance (uncredited)
i didn't realize this was strother martin, the classic sadist, until i did an image search on him the other day.
one of my favourite actors, making lovely sadistic appearances in:
john ford's the man who shot liberty valance 1962
stuart rosenberg's cool hand luke 1967, and pocket money 1972
"what we have here is...failure to communicate." (cool hand luke)
sam peckinpah's the wild bunch 1969, and the ballad of cable hogue 1970
george roy hill's butch cassidy and the sundance kid 1969
