Henry Silva


Born - 15 September 1926, New York City, USA
Died - 15 September 2022

Tall, cold-eyed, impassive, unsmiling, slightly oriental-looking, dark-haired American actor of Spanish-Italian parentage who often played emotionless killers. An attempt to install him in leading roles in the early 1960s was not successful and he returned to bad guys, even if they were sometimes too silly for even Silva to make an impact. A fluent Italian and Spanish speaker, and much in Italy from the mid 1960s, he later made many obscure action films of the straight-to-video variety: Viva Zapata! (1952), The Tall T (1956), A Hatful of Rain (1957), The Law and Jake Wade (1958), The Bravados (1958), The Jayhawkers! (1959), Ocean's Eleven (1960), The Manchurian Candidate (1962), Sergeants 3 (1962), Johnny Cool (1963), The Secret Invasion (1964), The Return of Mr Moto (1965), The Hills Run Red (1966), Never a Dull Moment (1967), Blood Money (1968), Five Savage Men (1970), Murder Inferno (1973), Challenge to White Fang (1975), Shoot (1976), Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979), Virus (1980). Sharky's Machine (1981), The Man with the Deadly Lens (1982), Cannonball Run II (1983), Code of Silence (1985), Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold (1986), Above the Law (1987), Dick Tracy (1990), The Harvest (1993), Mad Dog Time/Trigger Happy (1996), Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999), Ocean's Eleven (remake, 2001), his last, and many more. Three times married and divorced, he died on his 96th birthday from natural causes.
