I just learned that Richard Widmark passed away at the age of 93.
Widmark was on a short list of my all time favorite actors, sharing top
billing with Fred MacMurray, George Peppard, and the brilliant (in my
opinion) supporting actor Martin Balsam.
The best actors seem to adapt their roles to themselves, so that they
never lose their off-screen persona. Frank Sinatra was always himself
in his movies, as was John Wayne. And so was Richard Widmark.
Why do we like "bad guys" so much? Possibly because we get the feeling
that in their private lives they are neither good nor bad, but rather,
something even better: genuine. Richard Widmark never divorced. He
outlived two wives, one marriage lasting 55 years until his first wife
passed on. So we know he was not a loner, although his life style was
private, as he never appeared on TV talk shows to promote his movies or
himself. Buoyed by his inimitable personal qualities, he carved a
unique niche for himself in film, and ran with it for a half- century.
The Law and Jake Wade made a strong impression upon me, seeing it for
the first time, as a 16-year old, shortly after its release in 1958.
This film had a 3-D quality, and a horror film quality which really
grabbed its audience, at that time. By 1958 the 3-D fad was long gone,
but, I swear, when the Indians attacked Widmark's gang at night with
bows and arrows, it seemed like 3-D revisited as the arrows seemed to
be coming right through the screen at the audience. Even knowing it was
a movie, I was petrified, so realistic is this scene. Unfortunately,
this realism cannot be duplicated via DVD or any lesser medium.
Abetting all this excitement is the contrast in style of Widmark and
Robert Taylor. While Taylor had adopted family values and professional
law man responsibility following his maverick Civil War renegading in
partnership with Widmark, Widmark, as the years passed, would have none
of the maturing and sobering process to which most men evolve, after
having sown their wild oats. So that when Widmark and Taylor locked
horns due to a conflict of interest and values, long after the war's
end and the demise of their gang, there could be no reconciliation as
their cross-purpose came to a head.
Widmark's upbeat, anti-social mores neatly bounce off Taylor's low-key,
conventional manner, right up to their inevitable show-down. And it
doesn't matter whether Widmark prevailed in the end, his is the
character which makes this an enduring film-going experience.
