Anthony Sher; South African-born stage and screen actor, Mrs. Brown, The Wolfman etc.
Influential horror author Anne Rice (Interview with the Vampire/The Vampire Chronicles) has died.
I hope the AMC series will do her proud. While not an expert on the entire world of the Vampire Chronicles, Interview with a Vampire was simply an incredible piece of work.
Was sorry to read that Spanish actress Verónica Forqué has died at the age of 66 from Suicide, you would have seen her in many of Almodóvar's Movies
Sadly, Truly Scrumptious moves from the Veterans list to here;
Jean-Marc Vallée, director of C.R.A.Z.Y, Cafe de Flore, Dallas Buyers Club, Big Little Lies and Sharp Objects, has died.
Damn, he did some outstanding work with the imagery in Sharp Objects
I always had an interest in Vallee's stuff after seeing and loving Cafe de Flore. His movies had a stylish vibe. What a sad loss.
Betty White has died aged 99. RIP.
An institution. An 80+ year career.
RIP. Class act and a classy lady.
RIP just shy of 100
Jeanine Ann Roose has died aged 84.
She played young Little Violet in It's a Wonderful Life.
TCM Remembers those who died in 2021.
Damn! That hit in the feels!
Young Gunnel Lindblom was the spit of Rebecca Ferguson or.. eh vice versa.. not sure how that works or maybe works both ways.
Definitely felt it when they included Michael K Williams. Maybe just because I knew more of his work and he was so young and the circumstances.
Lost some great talent over the last 12 months. One that was on the video I’d missed was Haya Harareet who played opposite Charlton Heston in Ben-Hur.
Probably doesn't qualify as less famous but Peter Bogdanovich has died at the age of 82. RIP
Paper Moon is one of my all time favourite films. Very sad news.
Bogdanovich was a great champion and raconteur of Hollywood's classical era and scholar of Orson Welles in particular. He played a big role in establishing the modern idea of the director as auteur. As a filmmaker he peaked early making at least two great films and several good ones. A good actor too.
The Last Picture Show, What's Up Doc? and Paper Moon. Three classics in a row from Peter Bogdanovich released in three years in the early seventies.
Deadline reports Sidney Poitier has died.
So sad to learn. Trailblazing indeed. The Heat Of The Night broke through so many boundaries, was ahead of it's time.
There's a dedicated thread here.
Lyricist and composer Marilyn Bergman
Yvette Mimieux has died at the age of 80. Possibly best known as Weena in The Time Machine (1960), her first feature film when she was 18, though I also remember her from The Black Hole, the Disney SF film.
Parvi enim sunt foris arma, nisi est consilium domi.
Gaspard Ulliel as died aged 37 in a skiing accident, RIP.
He palyed Hannibal Lecter in Hannibal Rising
If you can't quite place the face, he's been in ads for Chanel for years including the recent one with Bowie's Starman as the soundtrack. He's also in the upcoming Moon Knight on Disney+ as well as lots of French TV and movie credits to his name.
He’s in one of my favourite films, A Very Long Engagement. RIP.
