Just As I Thought

Ossie Davis

I just, simply, liked everything I saw Ossie Davis do. He was a great actor, and a great civil rights activist.
He died today at age 87. Too soon.
He and Ruby Dee — another distinguished actress and civil rights activist — had been married for nearly 60 years.

  • One of the few (very few) actors on my list where I like just about everything they do. I can only recall one movie with Ossie I didn’t like (Elvis something) The rest were top notch and I’ll forgive anybody for one bad movie.

    Always better than his peers I wish he had gotten more respect than he did.
