While shooting the role of Tuco Benedicto Pacífico Juan María Ramírez (aka The Rat, aka The Ugly) in Sergio Leone’s “The Good, The Bad And The Ugly” for which he became most known for, Eli Wallach nearly died on four different occasions. He accidentally drunk acid instead of soda, he rode a mile with his hands tied behind his back on an out of control horse and almost got decapitated by a train while lying on a railroad track. Luckilly none of this ended the wrong way and Eli Wallach went to live a long and full life and be part of some of the greatest movies of all time. He died on June 24th 2014 in New York, at age 98.
