Oscar de la Renta, 82

I'm not a big fashion guy, but I've always thought the man above exuded class in himself and his work.

Kabibe, RIP

Baby Gorilla Dies in Tragic Zoo Accident

A baby gorilla was crushed to death in an accident at the San Francisco this weekend, zoo officials said. Young Kabibe, a female gorilla, was being put to bed Friday night when she darted away and was killed by a closing hydraulic door, the zoo told ABC's San Francisco station KGO-TV.

"This type of accident is extremely rare..."

Glen A Larson, his shows were a staple of my tv diet growing up in the 80s.

We owe Glen Larson a debt of gratitude for not letting Lucas have Selleck out of spite, inadvertently making Ford Indy.

Explained here, testimony here.

Donna Douglas, Elly May on 'Beverly Hillbillies', dead at 81

Donna Douglas, who played voluptuous tomboy daughter Elly May Clampett on the
1960s TV series "The Beverly Hillbillies," has died.
She was 81. Baton Rouge, Louisiana, TV station WAFB reported that Douglas died Friday morning.

"The Beverly Hillbillies" may not mean anything outside the US but the
television show was a big hit during the Kennedy "Camelot" era.

This is mentioned a little late, but Edward Herrmann, a long-time character actor on films and TV, passed away after a bout of brain cancer on 12/31/14, age 71. I remember him from The Lost Boys, Intolerable Cruelty, The Great Gatsby, Annie among others. I also remember him on TV as Richard Gilmore from Gilmore Girls.

(Sunday, past) American sportscaster and anchor on ESPN, most notably on the network's SportsCenter. Scott regularly covered the NBA and the NFL for ESPN. He was well-known for his hip-hop style and use of catchphrases.

He was 49.

Sad to hear about Stu passing away. Class guy, and his Espy's speech was very brave and moving...

I loved him in The Birds! That's one of my favorite Hitchcock films!

Rod Taylor always delivered a good performance and I liked him very much.

It cannot be stressed enough how some of you folks would enjoy watching his (violent) action-adventure movie, "Dark of the Sun". It's my favourite Rod Taylor flick and I even started a thread on it where you check out the trailer:

Dark of the Sun

My 2nd favourite of his is the 1973 version of "Trader Horn". Numerous clips from this movie were used in my Raiders of the Lost Archives comparison video.

Here's a cool bit of publicity for it:



Other faves are "The Time Machine" (naturally), "36 Hours" and his bit part in "Hell on Frisco Bay".

R.I.P. Rod Taylor…and thanks.
