Joe Turkel was always very good, but his performance in Paths of Glory, in a cast filled with great ones, is a subtle and brilliant standout. RIP.

One of the very first interviews I ever conducted was with Joe Turkel, and it was quite the baptism. He had such a funny and fierce energy in person, but was also a precise, commanding character actor on the screen. As such, he was wonderfully unpredictable. R.I.P. Joe. https://t.co/diyN6Tnu9Z
