    I love the end of "Cross of Iron" where James Coburn takes him out of the bunker and says "I will show you where iron crosses grow" ,
    will be sadly missed.

    You cannot replace a great actor like Maximillian Schell.His portrayal of the defense lawyer in "Judgement At Nuremberg" was without equal.These actors were really the great ones.What goes for an actor nowadays couldn't shine his shoes.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
