Michael Sarrazin Dies at 70
Among his other movies were The Flim-Flam Man with George C. Scott, The Sweet Ride with Jacqueline Bisset – with whom he had a long relationship – as well as Sometimes a Great Notion and The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, both with Paul Newman, and For Pete's Sake, with Barbra Streisand.
Although never a full-fledged box-office name, the lanky, boyish Sarrazin was up for the leading role of Joe Buck in 1969's Midnight Cowboy – but, because of Sarrazin's contractual commitment to another studio, the part went to, and made a star of, Jon Voight.
Survivors, according to the Times, include two daughters, Michelle and Catherine, and a brother, Pierre, a producer.
