Someone post that line about "a great disturbance in the Force", just to head it off at the pass.

I wonder if there is some kind of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon divining tool that could pinpoint the next possible candidate(s).

So...is Death going to take another oldie to make it three for three, or is he going to take out a young one just to keep us on our toes?

LiLo is waiting in the hangers.

The morgue, what is it?

A place they send dead people, but that's not important right now.

Thanks for the thrills, Kersh. It was an honor to have met the man on a couple of occasions. He was a true gentleman. As this photo illustrates.

I was going to go with "There is another".

Never say Kirshner again...

Goodbye to the man who took Star Wars to new levels.
post #4461 of 7487
Going to watch Robocop 2. RIP Kershner.

Both of those deaths really suck. I'm 31 and I think it is safe to say most of us in and around my age on this site were affected by these two men greatly.
post #4464 of 7487
Damn RIP to two greats. Leslie Nielsen was one of my all time faves. Spent countless hours watching Airplane, Naked Gun series and Police Squad. He was always good, even if the material wasn't. True original and great talent.

Just when you thought this day couldn't get any sadder: legendary italian director Mano Monicelli, 95, kills himself by leaping off the fifth floor window at the hospital where he was being treated for prostate cancer.

This is heartbreaking. As far as I'm concerned, and as rich as my country's film legacy is, Monicelli was the greatest italian filmmaker. A razor-sharp mind, too, up until his last days, it's almost fitting that he decided to check out on his own terms instead of waiting around to be devoured alive by illness and aggressive treatment.

Still, what a massive bummer. My earliest memory of his films is being blown away by La Grande Guerra back in elementary school, when a teacher decided to show it during class.

And only three of his features (not counting Boccaccio '70) are available on Netflix. Shameful.
post #4467 of 7487
Offing yourself at 95. Out the hospital window. Talk about owning your shit.
post #4468 of 7487
Wait, has anyone checked to see if Lina Leandersson was anywhere near his room?

Cub legend/broadcaster Ron Santo.
post #4470 of 7487
Ron Santo! Damn it. Truly one of the good guys. It makes me sad.

Don't worry, he'll find someone else to cheat on soon enough. He'll probably hit on her pallbearers.

John Leslie, the star of such porn classics as "Talk Dirty To Me."

Fangoria says that Jean Rollin has passed away.

Blake Edwards is jacked.
post #4479 of 7487
Never could get into Rollin's films.

Another: actress Neva Patterson, 90. I guess her biggest claim to fame was An Affair To Remember, geeks will probably know her best as Mike Donovan's Hitlermom from the original V. Funny thing, I mentioned this a few weeks ago somewhere else on the boards, but I love that scene where Donovan tries to explain the true evil of the Visitors to her. Probably Marc Singer's biggest dramatic moment ever. "Mother, it's WRONG!"

with the passing of Edwards it has not been a good year for the cast of Operation Petticoat

I hope that you guys do a nice write-up for Blake. He deserves it.
post #4484 of 7487
10 is one of my absolute favorite movies of all time, as is The Pink Panther Strikes Again.

Now there won't be that remake of 10 that he was thinking about doing some time back. Well, there might be, but it won't have him on board. Would have been hilarious in only the way Blake Edwards could do.

I'll be seeing 10 and The Pink Panther Strikes Again this weekend.
post #4485 of 7487
My wife has already assured me that we're watching 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' and 'S.O.B.' this weekend.

S.O.B. is my favorite Edwards film. Such a terrific, bitter comedy.

Robert Preston absolutely steals this entire movie, especially in the third act. Yeah, it's probably my favorite Edwards film as well.

Preston, William Holden and Robert Webber are such a great comic trio that I wish they had made more movies together. Alas, I think this was Holden's last film or nearly his last.

I just found out about Blake Edwards' death. I liked the Pink Panther movies, 10, and S.O.B back in the day. Heck, I even liked Skin Deep.
post #4490 of 7487
As a 49-year-old film fan, I'd say Blake easily had as many misses as hits, but he's left a an indelible mark on '70s and '80s cinema. Just my humble.
post #4491 of 7487
Amen. And thus, my saturday night movie is planned: The Great Race it will be. My favourite Edwards- just so much fun crammed into 2 hours.

While PP Strikes Again isn't considered to be the best of the canon by a long shot (or so I'm under the impression), I think I can safely say it's the movie that made & still makes me laugh the hardest- of all time. The opening visit at the asylum, the Quasimodo disguise, 'Dus your doug bite', the storming of the castle... just one classic moment after another.

Oh and I think you must be one sour grape to let your political correctness spoil The Party. It's a perfect time capsule and a great Sellers showcase, just classic comedy, & that's all there is to it.
post #4492 of 7487
I'll be watching S.O.B. this weekend while singin' polly-wolly-doodle-all-the-day.

Fare thee well, Blake Edwards. Fare thee well...

Sucks. But on the upside his music career ended and achieved immortality long before he died. One of the few people I can think of who voluntarily quit making music while still in their prime - Ice Cream For Crow was one of his very best I think.

That was a misprint. He was 74. No way was Dietrich 30 years old when Barney Miller started.

Isabelle Caro, model, age 28. Died last month actually, but her family didn't publicly announce it till now. Not to be insensitive, but her anorexia made her truly ghastly-looking, which she used for a good cause in her infamous "No Anorexia" ad campaign.
