Richard Widmark, the gunslinging Western star, dies at 93

Richard Widmark, who made a sensational film debut as the giggling killer in Kiss of Death and became a Hollywood leading man in 40 other films, has died after a long illness. He was 93.

Widmark's wife, Susan Blanchard, says the actor died at his home in Roxbury, Connecticut, on Monday. She would not provide details of his illness and said funeral arrangements are private.

"It was a big shock, but he was 93," Blanchard said.

A quiet, inordinately shy man, Widmark often portrayed killers, cops and Western gunslingers, but famously said he hated guns and violence.

One of those actors I'd assumed was already dead, but a great screen presence. Played the great noir psycho in Kiss of Death.
