Jack Elam

Highest Rated: 100% The Man From Laramie (1955)

Lowest Rated: 0% The Villain (1979)

Birthday: Nov 13, 1920

Birthplace: Miami, Arizona, USA

Lean, eminently reliable veteran Hollywood player whose crookedly menacing face with its roving, sightless left eye helped him carve a niche as a villain in numerous Westerns and crime dramas since the 1950s, and later as a reliably comedic presence in his golden years.

QUOTES FROM Jack Elam CHARACTERS

Jake says: you want me to tell Joe Damby that he is under arrest for murder? What will you do once he kills me?

Jason McCullough says: Then I'll arrest him for both murders

Jason McCullough says: Then I'll arrest him for both murders.

Chris Boldt says: Well, I ain't got no references. But anybody can tell you that Chris Boldt is a man not to be trusted. That means nobody's secrets are sacred with me.
