The Telegraph said Edwards was driving down the A381 highway when the circular hay bale careened down a slope in a field beside the road, flipped over a hedge and went airborne into traffic, landing on the roof of his van.

Never heard of him, but that's beyond freaky! R.I.P.!

Kevin McCarthy, R.I.P.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/13/movies/13mccarthy.html



Quote
Kevin McCarthy, the suave, square-jawed actor who earned accolades in stage and screen productions of “Death of a Salesman” but will always be best known as the star of the 1956 science fiction movie “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” died Saturday at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, Mass. . He was 96.

(Need I add that the 1956 (original) Invasion of the Body Snatchers was directed by Don Siegel?)

I only just found out about the passing of Harold Gould on September 11, 2010.

I'll always remember him as Kid Twist in The Sting.

RIP Harold. :(

Character actor Stephen Tobolowsky paid tribute to his colleagues Kevin McCarthy (who was a character actor in later years) and Harold Gould in this New York Times op-ed piece:

 " James Bacon, columnist to the stars, dies at 96 "

 http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100919/ap_en_mo/us_obit_james_bacon

 By CHRISTOPHER WEBER

 
Quote
LOS ANGELES – James Bacon, who began his career at The Associated Press in the 1940s and spent six decades chronicling Hollywood's biggest stars as a reporter, author and syndicated columnist, died Saturday. He was 96.

Bacon died in his sleep of congestive heart failure at his Northridge home, according to family friend Stan Rosenfield.

As a reporter for the AP for 23 years and later as columnist for the now-defunct Los Angeles Herald Examiner, Bacon had a knack for befriending A-list celebrities. He palled around with John Wayne, shared whisky with Frank Sinatra, was a confidant of Marilyn Monroe and met eight U.S. presidents.
Quote
"Jim always made you feel like ... he was a pal looking to hang out," Clint Eastwood once said of Bacon.

I used to like Eddie Fisher.  I remember his marriages to Debbie Reynolds and Elizabrth Taylor. 

RIP Eddie.

I was saddened by his death--He's one of the few celebrities whose homes I've been in. I visited him and his wife on the  Pacific Palisades way back in 1990. I went with an alumni group from my alma mater--He went to the same university that I did, different years. They were gracious hosts. (They had a pool--I can't remember if I took a dip in it.)

RIP Greg Giraldo

I always enjoyed his comedy on stand-up specials and roasts, and whenever he would get a bit part in something.

Arthur Penn ... R.I.P.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/30/movies/30penn.html?_r=1&hpw



From the obit by Dave Kehr:

Quote
Arthur Penn, the stage, television and motion picture director whose revolutionary treatment of sex and violence in the 1967 film “Bonnie and Clyde” transformed the American film industry, died on Tuesday night at his home in Manhattan, the day after he turned 88.

The cause was congestive heart failure, his son, Matthew, said.

A pioneering director of live television drama in the 1950s and a Broadway powerhouse in the 1960s, Mr. Penn developed an intimate, spontaneous and physically oriented method of directing actors that allowed their work to register across a range of mediums.

In 1957 he directed William Gibson’s television play “The Miracle Worker” for the CBS series “Playhouse 90” and earned Emmy nominations for himself, his writer and his star, Teresa Wright. In 1959 he restaged “The Miracle Worker” for Broadway and won Tony Awards for himself, his writer and his star, Anne Bancroft. And in 1962 he directed the film version of the Gibson text, capturing the best actress Oscar for Bancroft, the best supporting actress Oscar for her co-star, Patty Duke, and nominations for writing and directing.

Mr. Penn’s direction may have also changed American history. He advised Senator John F. Kennedy during his watershed television debates with Richard M. Nixon in 1960 (and directed the broadcast of the third debate). Mr. Penn’s instructions to Kennedy — to look directly into the camera and keep his responses brief and pithy — helped give Kennedy an aura of confidence and calm that created a vivid contrast to Nixon, his more experienced but less telegenic Republican rival.

But it was as a film director that Mr. Penn left his mark on American culture, most indelibly with “Bonnie and Clyde.”

Another Hollywood great.   I loved his movies and his TV program The Persuaders with Roger Moore.

Rest in Peace Tony.
