1.Once Upon a Time in the West

Henry Fonda, Claudia Cardinale

Released: 1968

Directed by: Sergio Leone

 

Jason Robards, in full Jason Nelson Robards, Jr., (born July 26, 1922, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.—died December 26, 2000, Bridgeport, Connecticut), American stage and film actor who was known for his intense, introspective performances and who was widely regarded as the foremost interpreter of the works of playwright Eugene O’Neill.

 

His first film appearance was in The Journey (1959). Robards was occasionally criticized for delivering overly theatrical screen performances, especially when he repeated his stage roles in the movie versions of Long Day’s Journey into Night (1962) and A Thousand Clowns (1965). He appeared in such negligible films as The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre (1967), in which he was singularly miscast as Al Capone, and Murders in the Rue Morgue (1971). His more significant movies from this time included Sergio Leone’s Once upon a Time in the West (1968), William Friedkin’s The Night They Raided Minsky’s (1968), and Sam Peckinpah’s The Ballad of Cable Hogue (1970). Robards later earned two consecutive Academy Awards for his subtle, well-modulated performances as The Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee in All the President’s Men (1976) and detective novelist Dashiell Hammett in Julia (1977). He received a third Oscar nomination for his interpretation of yet another “real-life” character, Howard Hughes, in Melvin and Howard (1980). Robards’s later films included Philadelphia (1993), A Thousand Acres (1997), and Magnolia (1999)
