James Coburn

Born August 31st 1928 – Died November 18th 2002

Legendary screen and TV tough guy James Coburn appeared in some of America's most iconic movies including "The Magnificent Seven" and "The Great Escape" in his near half century career and was an Oscar winner for his supporting role in the 1998 film, "Affliction." Born in Laurel, Nebraska and raised in California, Coburn joined the military in 1950 where he first discovered his skill for entertaining working as a part-time disc-jockey and narrating army training films. After leaving the army, he studied acting at the City College of Los Angeles and his first big break came when he landed the lead in a Remington Razor advert.

May his soul rest in peace.
