“Angel Eyes”, “The Man in Black”, “The Bad”, “Possibly one of the coolest guys Brittany's ever see on screen”. There are lots of nicknames for Lee Van Cleef, western movie star extraordinaire.
His face is weather beaten into manly perfection, his eyes are just as piercing if he's playing an honorable bounty hunter or a heartless villain. He also had a role in Escape from New York, and ended up in a made for TV series called “the Master.”
Like the late (R.I.P.) John Philip Law's film Danger Diabolik, this was spoofed by MST3K. Fine, nerds and robots, poke your fun, but there is no denying the supreme hunkiness and talents of both these men.
Van Cleef was also a devoted father. According to wikipedia, he lost a finger while building his daughter's playhouse. This was not the only injury in his life. In 1959 he was involved in a serious car accident that nearly ended his career and did end his marriage. For a time he was an interior decorator (the kind of interior decorator Paulie might have reason to be afraid of) before he skyrocketed to fame in Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns.
