Lee Van Birthday

Today, I’d like to acknowledge the birthday of Lee Van Cleef. True, most people know the late, great Mr. Van Cleef as the spokesman for Midas Mufflers and Cheetos. But what few people realize is that Lee actually did some proper acting on the side. You may have unknowingly seen him in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes It Conquered the World and the famed Master Ninja duology. He even appeared in one or two western films. So, to the memory of that fellow New Jersian, I dedicate this post. One more video after the break.

“You came back from the dead for this,” you ask? Yes.
