    RIP. I don’t think he has ever been in a bad film
    He was very good in the Film M*A*S*H and in the Dirty Dozen
    Three of my favourite films

    RIP. All his performance were great but he was fantastic in Eye of the Needle. I haven't watched the Dirty Dozen since I was a child. I must remedy that.

    This, never seen a bad performance from him and was always able to hold your attention - a real star quality.

    RIP.

    Well, yeah, man, you see, like, all the tanks we come up against are bigger and better than ours, so all we can hope to do is, like, scare 'em away, y'know. This gun is an ordinary 76mm but we add this piece of pipe onto it, and the Krauts think, like, maybe it's a 90mm. We got our own ammunition, it's filled with paint. When we fire it, it makes... pretty pictures. Scares the hell outta people! We have a loudspeaker here, and when we go into battle we play music, very loud. It kind of... calms us down.

    +1 for Kelly's Heroes and also loved his cameo in Animal House.

    A fine actor in just about everything he ever did. RIP.

    I can remember his performance in Babyface - the end of the film was pure VHS classic.

    Could never stand him or his son and actively avoided anything they made. RIP to a fellow human though.

    Haunting in the final scene of Body Snatchers.

    Encountered him in a Canadian airport, he was ahead of us in the queue for passport control, actually encountered him a couple of times as we all did the loping back and forth...tall chap.

    Just talking to a younger staff member in the office about 'classic' movies and realised how many he was in. Kellys Heroes, Dirty Dozen, The Eagle Has Landed, The Great Train Robbery, Klute, Don't Look Now, Bear Island, Eye of the Needle; and they are just the obvious ones!

    Well he was in the remake of The Italian Job. And Virus, which was about evil alien AI malware beaming down to convert all of humanity into cyborg slaves. Nonetheless, what a brilliantly distinctive and charismatic actor. Absolutely a one-off. I think I first became aware of his work when my mum took me to see Kelly's Heroes as a kid. Apart from Pinnochio, Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music, the only other film I remember her taking me to see was Where Eagles Dare. I didn't twig until several decades later that she had a thing for Clint Eastwood.

    Speaking of whom, Clint and Donald were both in Space Cowboys, a film that some critics might turn their nose up at, but I loved it personally.

    I really enjoyed seeing him in so many films. He was in Ad Astra (2019) and still had it. Truly a talented film actor.
