2013 tcm SUTS Blogathon Day 27: Martin Balsam
Welcome to DAY TWENTY-SEVEN of the 2013 Summer Under the Stars blogathon!
Today we will spotlight bloggers who will spotlight Martin Balsam!
First, a little Martin Balsam trivia … According to IMDb (so it MUST be true), Balsam was once father-in-law to George Clooney, when Clooney was married to his daughter, Talia Balsam.
SUTS and Oscar: Martin Balsam was nominated for one Oscar, which he won:
Best Supporting Actor, 1965’s A Thousand Clowns (winner)
Now onto the blogging!
John Greco from Twenty Four Frames returns with a wonderful essay on Al Capone (1959).
2012 Blogathon alum Toby from Toobworld joins us again this year with a look at Balsam’s performance in Little Big Man: The Legend of Allardyce T. Meriweather.
Over at Tales of the Easily Distracted, Dorian looks at the “Armed and Dangerous Strangers on a Train” of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three.
With one last blogathon go-round, Sean from The Joy and Agony of Movies offers his keen insight on Balsam in The Taking of Pelham One Two Three.
And now it’s Meaghan’s turn at The Moviola, with a look at Balsam in Mitchell!
