    He was also in a lot of Westerns, and not just horror and martial arts films.

    What a huge loss to the film industry.
    He had been making films since the 1950's.
    Sad to hear this.

    Shambolicus It's 'cause I'm short, I know...

    Detective, courtroom, medical dramas or westerns...in addition to his film work, the man was practically a TV drama guest star staple from the mid-‘60s to mid ‘80s. Rest In Peace.

    This news really frigging hurts. I love John Saxon. I'm not sure if he was considered a great actor but I always enjoyed his appearances in so many horror films. Geez, he was in Mario Bava and Dario Argento flicks and that's only a dent in his filmography. A really handsome guy in his prime too. RIP John Saxon. Man, it's getting harder to find a reason to live anymore.

    He also appeared in one of the earliest Rock n Roll movies, before it was a thing!
    'Rock n Roll' before 'Rock n Roll'...

    An formidable cult deprogrammer in one film-always was immediately recognizable. RIP

    He was one of those actors that could do just about anything if he wanted to. RIP.

    Several sources are saying that he was either born in 1935 or 1936.

    RIP.

    Grew up with him watching Nightmare On Elm Street, but as I got older I watched many more of his movies...including this classic...

    Oh dear! I really liked and and really enjoyed his work. I thought about him the other day. :cry:

    He was so awesome as Sador in Battle Beyond the Stars.

    What a terrible shame. Among many memorable roles (and scenes), his 'hat roll' in Argento's Tenebre always gets a laugh. A truly talented actor. RIP, Sir. :(

    He's good in War Hunt and trades scenery-chewing quite effectively with Brando in The Appaloosa

    John was an exploitation stalwart of the first order. You never knew where or when he was going to pop up because he made every kind of movie imaginable. I think the last movie I saw him in was Moonshine County Express with Claudia Jennings and William Conrad! RIP John. Thanks for all the great movie moments.
