One of the great seventies film actors, Sam Bottoms, passes away in Los Angeles at 53.
The Associated Press has this.
Sam Bottoms was in countless other films but he is in two of my all-time favorite films from the seventies.
Peter Bogdanovich's The Last Picture Show, 1971 and Francis Coppola's Apocalypse Now, 1979.
Bottoms plays opposite his brother Timothy in The Last Picture Show.
