MICHAEL J. POLLARD R.I.P.
Most people know Michael from his scene stealing performance in BONNIE AND CLYDE, and that's the way I first knew him too. Then in my Hollywood years (the '80s and '90s) I encountered him at social events and ended up being acquaintances who stopped to talk whenever we ran into each other. In my experience he was a very sweet, funny, and unique person. And a brilliant actor. He is already missed. I'm only sorry I never saw him after I moved back East. Condolences to his family, friends, and fans.
