|Gene Hackman's performance as Little Bill Dagget in Eastwood's "The Unforgiven," brought tears to my eyes. He is a marvel, an amazing actor. Love the guy|
Think about it...we would be able to enjoy the talent's of so many others... and the RIGHT person will get the part. Plus, look at "Welcome to Mooseprt," one of Hackman's last films... what a waste. Simialr to Jeff Brodges in RIPD, we don;t need to be subjected to garbage like it.

That year, 1992, had been one where there were many big performances- and the race for the OSCAR was tight. In the BEST ACTOR category, we had: Pacino beating Clint and Downey Jr by a handful of votes.
Even more close had been the OSCAR for best supporting actor - with Pacino (GlenGary) and Nicholson (Few Good Men) falling short of Hackman's performance.
Hey, I am not saying they should retire forver...
Isn;t it strange how only Jack Nicholson, and maybe Terrence Malick are the only people in Hwood who can do what they want. Al others are hed to account... by a higher power.
