Such a long and varied, rich career. Winner of Best Actor Tony for The Rose Tattoo and an honorary Oscar in 2010. Survived by his wife Anne Jackson, a fine actress with whom he sometimes appeared. He was 98.

This one hurts my heart a lot. Wallach was one of my favorite actors, and so many of his performances are engraved in my memory. But he was 98! And still working... Amazing, inspiring, astonishing. A helluva guy.

Rest in Peace.

Eli and Anne were permanent fixtures at my friend's home for parties. My friend's parents were both actors and the conversations were wonderful! Very sad today.

Never had the opportunity to see him perform onstage, but have enjoyed his work in films and television. Just amazing that he was still active at 98 years of age.

Rest in peace.

It is wonderful to see someone who was good as he was, who loved his craft, living such a full and long life while staying active until the end! RIP!

First saw him in Major Barbara in 1967 -- I was too young to appreciate what I was seeing at the time, but I continued to follow him through the years. RIP, Mr. Wallach and my heartfelt condolences to your lovely wife, a real doll if there ever was one.!
