WAY too many great movies to name. Always loved seeing him pop up when I was watching something from just about any era. Good to him for making it to 95!

A Sam Peckinpah regular and one of the best character actors. I fucking loved that guy.

Aw damn. TCM just had a Dick Tracy marathon last night too and I caught ol' Pruneface.
As inri222 mentioned, Peckinpah was able the bring out the absolute best (Or the beast) in this guy.

The third 95-year-old actor to die this month, following Ernest Borgnine and Celeste Holm.
Armstrong was great in so many films, esp. those for Peckinpah, but check out Jack Starrett's RACE WITH THE DEVIL if you haven't seen it already. Armstrong's pretty scary in that one, to say the least.
