Actor Tony Franciosa has died after suffering a massive stroke. He was 77.
Ironically, his death comes less than a week after that of Shelley Winters–one of his four wives.
But, despite an impressive big screen start, Franciosa failed to live up to his initial promise and after acclaimed roles in films like The Long Hot Summer (1958) and Rio Conchos (1964), he turned his attention to TV.
He found small-screen stardom on the TV series The Name of the Game and Matt Helm, among other shows.
