Sad
I guess the tuberculosis of the bones finally got him. Morton goes Mort.
For me, he will always be remembered as Morton. A great role in a great movie that people will watch forever - what can be more immortal than that?
OUATITW is in the top 30 in IMDB, was the top Western in the 2012 Sight & Sound Directors Poll.
Terrific job, playing a man at least 20 years older than Ferzetti was at the time. That was the first movie I saw him in and he was totally convincing; I didn't realize till years later how young he actually was, after I saw him in some of his Italian movies.

Well done, Gabrielle. Rest in peace Smiley

The Searchers was the top Western in the critics' poll; OUATITW was the top Western in the directors'' poll

Critics are always a bit too conservative in their taste ...

His best work was definitely OUATITW. Besides the obvious, I was also impressed by his performance in Costa-Gavras's The Confession. RIP to a great actor.
