Rod Steiger RIP

07.10.2002

Lending more creepy credence to the "death comes in threes" theory, Oscar-winning actor Rod Steiger passed away on Tuesday, mere days after the death of director John Frankenheimer. Steiger died of pneumonia and kidney failure; possible complications from a gall bladder surgery he had last week. Steiger won the Best Actor Academy Award for IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT and had been nominated twice before for, in THE PAWNBROKER and as supporting actor in ON THE WATERFRONT. Later, depression and a weight problem caused his work to suffer and his roles diminished. He waged a comeback in the 90s with roles in MARS ATTACKS!, THE HURRICANE and CRAZY IN ALABAMA and a look that featured a bald head and gold medallions. Steiger was 77.
