RIP Eli Wallach

We all remember Eli Wallach, who died this week, for his roles in “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and “The Magnificent Seven” and mourned his passing at age 98.

But I had forgotten, until I had MeTV on tonight, that Wallach had played the frosty villain Mr. Freeze in the 1960s “Batman” TV series.

Wallach was the third actor to play the role, following George Sanders and Otto Preminger.

Thanks for entertaining us, Mr. Wallach.
