I was saddened to hear of the death of American actor, Roy Scheider. My favorite role that he played had to be Sonny "Cloudy" Grasso in The French Connection. I was also fond of a lesser known role he had in the film The Seven-Ups, because it was filmed in the Bronx and one shot had my Dad's car in it.
When I called my brother to tell the news, his immediate comment was, "They're going to need a bigger coffin" - referring, of course, to the famous line from Jaws.
Rest in peace, Roy . . .
