The landscape of American cinema is littered with forgotten faces. Here is a tribute to one actor I will never forget. Long a lover of the "character actor" I want to devote a few words to one of the greatest: Warren Oates!
Dead way too soon, Oates is best remembered for his associations with two great icons of American film: Sam Peckinpah and Monte Hellman.
If it has been awhile go back and renew your love with The Wild Bunch and Two Lane Blacktop. Then delve a little deeper with Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia.
There is no denying! Oates is groovy!
