Damn! I had the pleasure of directing Larry in a movie back in '95. The production was plagued with producer related problems (surprise!), but working with wildman Tierney was the definite highlight of the shoot. He was a tough old codger, but he will be missed. They sure don't make them like him anymore. Talk about hard boiled!
