Seriously, I hate having to do these. They're depressing. That said- I feel bad for ignoring this stuff for too long. Here are the ones that I've been putting off talking about...
*Tony Curtis died after 85 years on this Earth. He made dozens of films, appeared on-screen with Marilyn Monroe (see below) and appears in the world's only film about a killer tumor/Indian spiritualist- The Manitou. While it's not a great film, there's no dissing his role here- or the fact that he spawned Jamie Lee Curtis.
Just for juxtaposition...
- Gloria Stuart
- Benoit Mandelbrot (the guy who created Fractals)
- Leonard Skinner (the man Lynrd Skynrd is named after)
- James Bacon
- Kevin McCarthy (star of UHF and Invasion of the Body Snatchers)
-Roy Ward Baker (director of numerous Amicus/Hammer films)
Again- I hate having to do these. No offense, the recently-dead.
