One of the truly great strivers: Do you know this man’s familiar face?
Here at THE HOWLER, we certainly do! We’ve known Ed Lauter since the early 1970s, since before he co-starred with Burt and Burgess and Anthony Hopkins and even with Ann-Margret.
Co-starred with Ann-Margret! Good God!
Ed was one the world’s great strivers. In the 1970s, it seemed he might be developing a starring career in the movies. When that didn’t turn out, he just kept making movies, in co-starring and character roles.
The man has appeared in a million films. We knew that he was in the last days or weeks of his life, but we were saddened to see the notice in this morning’s Times.
Persistence and striving are very powerful. Ed Lauter was full of life.
