Richard Widmark 100 -- December 26. 2014

Actor Richard Widmark was born 100 years ago today, on 26-December-1914.  He made a big impression playing Tommy Udo in Kiss of Death, his first movie.  Udo giggled while shoving an old lady in a wheelchair down a stairway. 

Widmark was typecast in antisocial roles for many years, such as the pickpocket Skip McCoy in Pickup on South Street.  Later he played heroes.
