    Hello, Peter:

    Superb choice of one of America’s primo character actors!

    I still think his best, most unrestrained work as Pvt. Ferol in ‘Paths of Glory’ reigns supreme. Followed by closely by ‘World’s Greatest Sinner’, ‘The Killing’ and as Robert Ryan’s bodyguard in ‘The Outfit’.

    Your critique knocks it out of the park.

    Very well done, indeed!

      Thanks for reading Jack! I spent like 2 months slowly working on that article, haha. It was fun though learning those different details about TC. He really was a zany dude and a cool actor!

  2. Great article. I admire a guy who goes his own way, does his own thing. Although, if I saw Carey walking down the street I’d probably cross over to the other side. He’s truly an actor you cannot turn away from.

    Wonderful post on a great actor! One, I admit, whose name I didn’t recognize. BUT, I have seen him in most of the films you mention and love him!! GREAT addition to the blogathon, Pete!!

    If there was one movie Carey should’ve appeared in it was William Peter Blatty’s The Ninth Configuration…..
