euronews.  Talented actor Ben Gazzara has died at the age of 81. The star of  Run for Your Life ,  a  TV drama, that launched his movie career and   landed him a job working alongside Jimmy Stewart in “Anatomy of Murder”,  died  of pancreatic cancer on Friday in New York.

During his distinguished career in films, Gazzara acted in tough guy roles.  His powerful portrayal as a gutsy gangster in The Killing of a Chinese Bookie and as “Scarface Al Capone” in the movie  “Capone” made him  much in demand for macho roles.
