A character actor who delivered some of the movies’ most memorable lines died in his Southern California home Wednesday at the age of 94, the AP reported.
Joe Mantell was a familiar face on film and television, as well as an Oscar-nominated actor for his role in the 1955 feature "Marty."
Mantell, who appleared in dozens of films and on more than 70 television shows, such as "The Twilight Zone," had a penchant for snagging great movie lines. In "Marty," his line, "Well, what do you feel like doin’ tonight?" captured the theme of the movie. And in 1974’s "Chinatown," Mantell summed up Jack Nicholson’s frustration with the case by declaring, "Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown."
