The late Lee Van Cleef has had an illustrious career.

Corral; The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance; For a Few Dollars More; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly; The Magnificent Seven Ride!; The Octagon
and Escape From New York
. On television, he usually had guest-starring roles, and could be seen in shows like The Lone Ranger; The Gene Autry Show; The Adventures of Kit Carson; The Untouchables; Lawman; Cheyenne; The Rifleman; Laramie; Rawhide; Gunsmoke
and many more.
In 1984, Lee Van Cleef starred in a short-lived program called The Master
, which ran for 13 episodes on NBC. Now the folks at Kino Lorber have announced on Facebook
