Eli Wallach was one of the greats, not just in movies but in television theater as well. He and Anne Jackson were one New York’s most famous and enduring acting couples, as well. Wallach passed away last night at age 98. Awards? Wallach received a Lifetime Achievement Oscar in 2010. He won one Emmy, and had four other nominations.
