    Elam, born in Miami, Ariz., didn't always play the mean old hombre — he also found himself cast as dirty old men and harmless drunks

    "It was how he would've wanted to be remembered."

    Happy trails, Jack.

    He was brilliant in Cannonball Run...I guess.

    I think he was the drunk Gary Cooper lets out of jail just before Frank Miller pulls into town in High Noon. He was relatively young and slender then.

    I remember him mainly from Disney films and Support Your Local Gunfighter.

    He probably wrote tone poems in Aramaic when he wasn't playing drunks.
