The Truck From Duel Finally Got Him

Dennis Weaver has died.

He did so much TV work, so much good work, that it's hard to single one thing out, but his performance in the Twilight Zone episode "Shadow Play" -- as a death row convict trying to convince people that they are all just part of his dream, and that he is doomed to dream his death every night -- may be his best. In movies, I'm especially fond of his small role as the creepy motel manager in Touch of Evil. And of course I haven't gotten into the stuff for which he is best known, like Gunsmoke, McCloud and Duel. Here's his huge list of credits.
