Don't forget his best performance, as the title character in Johnny Cool (1963).

His work in 70s Italian crime films in also worth noting.

I especially enjoy his late-career cameos, in The End of Violence, for example, and in Ghost Dog.

Johnny Cool didn't impress me the first time I watched it.

I like (but don't love) Johnny Cool, but I agree that it's one of his best performances. I also second the 70's Italian stuff.

RIP

It must be, because for once he was the lead.
