Alex Rocco Feb. 29 1936 - July 18 2015



    A bit late with this as this past week ago Sat. we lost the wonderful character actor Alex Rocco. Probably best known as Moe Green from THE GODFATHER, he also made a fine series of appearances in the several low budget exploitation moves of the 70's including Arthur Marks's BONNIE'S KIDS ("Thank God She Only Had Two !") from 1973 and in a rare leading role for him in 1973's excellent police thriller DETROIT 9000.
   He also made memorable appearances in SLITHER from 1973, along with 1974's FREEBIE AND THE BEAN (both starring James Cann and both well worth seeking out) and the great THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE (1973 - man, he was busy that year !) with Robert Mitchum and the sorely under seen HEARTS OF THE WEST from 1975. He will be greatly missed.
