great actor old and new
Walter was great in his old films like Odd Couple, and great in his newer films like the Grumpy old men films.
Great comic actor
One of my favorite older comidies is the Odd Couple. The humor, wit, and one-liners are hilaroius, creative, and only a limited amount of modern movies can top it, including the 30 year later Odd Couple 2. Dont get me started on Odd Couple 2. It was such a blunder. I believe the directors and producers were more responsible for that though. Cause on their own, Walter and Jack Lemon are classic comic icons. The directors just wanted to turn OC2 into another one of those run of the mill modern formula road movies complete with sleasy motels, bars, hookers, bar fights with the local rednecks, run ins with the local cops, etc. And another thing, them having our classic stars spurting out f-words. Talk about completely ruining every classic touch from the way films used to be. The tail end of OC2 was the only part of the movie that had a hint of the old stlyle, wit, and humor from the original Odd Couple, when they were gathered around the poker table with the original Odd Couple theme playing. Grumpy and Grumpier Old Men though were both much better films than OC2. Walter and Lemon were much more like their original odd couple selfs in those films. The funniest scene in Grumpier Old Men was when Lemon was temperorary kicked out of his wife's house and tried to go stay with Matthau. That was a good deja vu of the original OC. Matthau and Lemon were great classic comedians for the most part, and with a great many old time actors, actresses, and films, they just don't make em like they used to. The older times were a better time.
AN EXCELLENT COMIC ACTOR
LIKE KEN BENTON, WALTER MATTHAU ALWAYS MADE ME LAUGH! THE WAY HE SAID SOMETHING, AND THE FACIAL EXPRESSION THAT WENT WITH IT WERE JUST VERY FUNNY! HE PROVED IN MORE THAN ONE MOVIE THAT HE WAS MORE THAN JUST A COMIC ACTOR-IN THE FIRST STORY OF "PLAZA SUITE", HE WAS SERIOUS, AND GAVE A GREAT PERFORMANCE! A TRULY GIFTED ACTOR!

I realy enjoy watching Walter Matthau in his movies. He always makes me laugh.I realy would enjoy seeing all of his earlier pictures,like from the fourties and fifties. I own both Odd couple series and both grumpy's. Can your network let me know when and if you might be playing his pictures? Thankyou, Ken.
Walter Matthau had charisma!
- Jenny Wins
I had heard of Mr. Matthau all my life, watched "Grumpy Old Men" but never knew until recently that the man had such charisma. My Gosh, that homely man had intense sex appeal! Besides being a great actor, which is what this sight is all about. He was truly talented and had all it took to be the leading man, ladies man, and everything in between. God Bless you, Mr. Matthau

Did anyone - ever - make it look easier!! I just think Walter was way to talented for most films he was ever in!! He had the ability to carry a poor film on his back and make something of it (at the box office). Has there ever been a better comedic pairing than Matthau and Lemon!! Everyone should make a point of seeing all of his work and buying up everything he was ever in for their own library!! We'll never see the likes of him again.
