Though he never reached the lead actor status he laboured so relentlessly to achieve, Warren Oates (1928 1982) is one of the most memorable and skilled character actors of the 1970s. Oates' offscreen personality was just as complex as his on-screen persona. Notorious for being a nightlife reveller, he was as sensitive and introspective as he was outgoing and prone to periods of exuberant, and at time, illegal, excess. Though he never became a marquee name, he continues to influence actors like Billy Bob Thornton and Benicia Del Toro, as well as directors such as Quentin Tarantino and Richard Linklater, all of whom have cited Oates as a major inspiration.
