Very sorry to hear it. I enjoyed his movie introductions very much.


Me too. I was thinking he was looking quite old the last few times I saw him.

A real legend. Met him a couple times at The Glen in '64 finished 2nd and also in the 70's when he ran his TS13 > 19/20 series chassis

He was one of the best. Maybe the best. His influence to rock and roll started the craze

Bernie Wrightson

Died of brain cancer at age 68. A name that I expect most here won't know. An immensely talented illustrator with a unique and instantly recognizable style who worked on comic books, illustrations for books, movie posters, album covers, etc.

He collaborated with Stephen King on quite a few projects, but might be best known for his illustrations for an edition of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Google "Bernie Wrightson Frankenstein".

I never saw an illustrated printing, but it is one of my favorite books. It is not at all a horror story; there are no cut up dead bodies. Highly recommended.
Jimmy Breslin who wrote a book whose title fits someone and his minions today perfectly, The Gang Who Couldn't Shoot Straight.

Breslin was an underrated writer, IMHO, a columnist (mainly) whose acerbic wit and very terse style-- almost like Hemmingway in that respect-- was unique and to me very entertaining. Anything that he wrote which I read was enjoyable and usually thought-provoking as well. RIP Mr. Breslin.

I believe that Confessions of a Dangerous Mind is the second best movie directed by an actor. An overlooked masterpiece.

A good film. Very enjoyable. In your estimation, what's the best movie directed by an actor.

What's truly weird about Chuck Barris is that I joked with a friend yesterday afternoon that everyone got it wrong: it was Barris who died, not Barry.

A film that steve8 just discovered and enjoyed, Night of the Hunter. Unfortunately it did not get good reviews and was a flop so Charles Laughton never directed again.

Saddened, I'm sure for David, that today is his birthday.

RIP Dan Rooney, owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Lots of great anecdotes about his demeanor. A model for all the sports team owners in how to conduct yourself and run a first class organization.
