2 Actor, director, and drama-coach-to-the-stars Lee Strasberg died on this day. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strasberg helped popularize the "Method" acting technique, by which the actor uses personal experience and memory to create necessary emotions. Strasberg earned a best-supporting actor nod for his big-screen debut in "The Godfather: Part II," after Al Pacino and Francis Ford Coppola talked him into taking the part of aging gangster Hyman Roth.
