    Sorry, I had to Google the name. Oh dear, not my taste at all. Obviously a talented artist but, oh dear, I need to lie down now.

    Sir John Arthur "Jack" Brabham. For motor sports fans the name Brabham is held in high esteem.

    The actress who played the housekeeper, Alice in The Brady Bunch died this week.
    Ann B Davis was 88.

    I loved watching TBB in the 80s on RTÉ- they looked so perfect.

    She always played great characters, a bit gutsy! Sorry she is gone.

    Suddenly and at the young age of 56 but not suspicious circumstances. Star of The Young Ones and Black Adder. RIP M'Lord Flasheart

    Rockford was knocked unconscious at least twice every week but, as "Maverick", he was my childhood hero. Dressed as an elegant baddie in black, bungling, tricky, funny but sooo cool. Thanks, Mr. Garner.

    Loved the Rockford Files. Thought it was so cool that he lived in a mobile home at the side of the beach.

    I remember that show but I had thought he had died years ago. I did like him in Murphy's Romance.

    Just heard about this.

    Always liked his performances in anything he appeared in.

    Apparently on the set of 'Grands Prix' (1966), some of the F1 drivers that worked on that movie reckoned he had the talent to do F1 for real.

    For people my age though, he'll always be Jim Rockford.

    R.I.P. Jimmy.

    Dora Bryan, aged 91. Another one slips away. Whatever I saw her in she was chasing the fellas, even in Last of the Summer Wine she had a 'past'! Hilarious to watch Thora Hird's characher tut tutting at her!

    Yeah, funny how time passes on.

    The WW2 generation is getting smaller now.

    Fewer & fewer are now around & I remember them as a child of being my age now.


    Still.....

    Louis Lentin, producer of "Dear Daughter," is another person who will be missed for his ground breaking film work.

    True, but I'm a wee bit later than WW2 generation. But still.......yeah.

    Dunno how old you guys are, but I remember not just Mork and Mindy, but also Robin Williams' appearance in Happy Days, and everything since:Mrs Doubtfire, Good Morning Vietnam, and his amazing and crazy standup stuff. Sad news.

    Mad man, but funny. :)

    Sad to go out that way though.

    What an astounding body of work he has left us. Personal favourites are The FisherKing and The Birdcage.

    Just been watching Youtube clip of Robin Williams on Parkinson from some years back 3007 - couldn't help a smile and a giggle despite a sadness to see it all end for him like this !

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,108 ✭✭✭Jellybaby1


    Very very sad indeed. I well remember Mork & Mindy, he was hilarious. I was still laughing heartily at him in The Birdcage many years later. He played the gay father brilliantly!

    Oh No, not Lauren Bacall too.

    Its only a few days since listening to

    Sad to hear about Lauren Bacall too. Tough cookie! Not your average Hollywood 'starlet'.

    (Just an aside seeing as Lauren's first choice on Desert Island Discs was Ella Fitzgerald, from my childhood years I was always attracted to Ella Fitzgerald's singing. I watched a documentary on her many years ago and I was so upset that she suffered so horrendously healthwise at the end.)

    Richard Attenborough, actor & film director has passed away aged 90.

    R.I.P.

    The Great Escape is my favourite Dickie film performance, if only because at one stage we got the same trailer excerpt on television for what seemed like forever:

    Well, that's what I intend to do. I'm going to cause such a terrible stink in this... Third Reich of theirs, that thousands of troops that could well be employed at the front will be tied up here looking after us.

    Richard Kiel, most known as Jaws in the James Bond movies of the late '70s.

    He was 74.

    Also Donald Sinden, longtime film TV & stage actor has passed on.

    He was 90.

    Dora Bryan used to be on stage with Brian Rix and made a great team; something like Jimmy O'Dea and Maureen Potter.
