THE ICONIC ACTOR AND A VERSATILE ARTIST AT BROADWAY: BEN GAZZARA DIED AT MANHATTAN.HE WAS NO LESSER A TALENT THAN MARLON BRANDO. . .BUT,HE COULD NOT GET THAT POPULARITY FOR GAZZARA WAS NOT VERY SERIOUS IN MAKING CHOOSY INROADS IN HOLLYWOOD AND HAD LEFT MANY MASTERPIECES . .!HE NV REGRETTED THOUGH!

BEN GAZZARA WAS AT TIMES A ‘LARGER THAN LIFE PERSONA’ AT BROADWAYS!
HE PLAYED IN SUCH CLASSICS AS ‘CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF’-A PLAY BY TENNESSEE WILLIAMS.ANOTHER MASTERSTROKE WAS HIS ROLE IN THE ‘STRANGE INTERLUDES’-A O’NEILL PLAY!

BEN PLAYED THE PORN-FILMS’ PRODUCER IN ‘THE BIG LIBOWSKY’.
He also played a memorable role in ‘THE KILLING OF A CHINESE BOOKIE’.
But, THEATER WAS BEN’S FIRST LOVE!HE WAS AN EXPONENT OF ‘METHOD-ACTING’-Taking the spirit of the character to make the actor n the character indistinguishable!
Ben played the role of Brick Pillotte who was an alcoholic n a failed football-star in the 1955’s ‘CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF’.

MAY HE KEEP INSPIRING EVEN AFTER DEATH!
