It just hit the news that Joseph Bennett has died, in an apparent suicide last month. He was one of the two actors who portrayed T. E. Lawrence in the Young Indiana Jones series, appearing as "Ned" in the pilot, "Curse of the Jackal".
Christopher Lee was definitely a legend. Many of his horror films are classics and far outweigh any of today's "horror" movies. Scaramanga was one of the best Bond villains (although the film as a whole was not one of the better Bonds). And honestly, Count Dooku was probably one of the best characters in the Prequel Trilogy.

Always enjoyed his sense of elegance and style. I will also remember him as the owner of Spinal Tap's record label, (quote: Tap into America). As is probably typical of Record CEO's, especially in the 80's, you get the sense that he knew absolutely nothing of the band or their music that he is spending millions in promoting!
In addition to these roles, I will also remember him as the narrator for the superb EON James Bond dvd documentaries.

His "Braveheart" score is one of my favorite movie scores.
Also R.I.P. to Dick Van Patten. I knew him best as King Roland in "Spaceballs."
As for Horner, sad to hear of yet another great composer's passing. In addition to Braveheart, Rocketeer and Appolo 13, I enjoyed his Star Trek entries. Battle Beyond the Stars is pretty good too. But my favorite James Horner score along with Braveheart would have to be the epic Willow. It's cues were used for the trailers to so many other movies.
