Telly Savalas, Mackenna’s Gold
Telly Savalas may be best remembered as television’s iconic Kojak (1973-1978) but, make no mistake about it, he was just as outstanding on the big screen.
He turned in a very memorable performance in the 1969 western Mackenna’s Gold, directed by J. Lee Thompson. The cast also includes Gregory Peck, Omar Sharif, Camilla Sparv, Keenan Wynn, Julie Newmar, Edward G. Robinson, Raymond Massey, Lee J. Cobb, Burgess Meredith, and Eli Wallach.
That’s what I call a cast!
