This is so odd to me: I heard years ago that Richard Dawson had died--I don't remember where I got that info. Now I hear he really has died.

RIP for real, Richard!

Victor Spinetti, Favorite in Beatles Films, Dies at 82



Quote
Victor Spinetti, who was an established British film star in 1963 when he agreed to make a movie with a pop group called the Beatles and who became famous ever after as the only person besides the four Beatles to appear in all of their movies — “A Hard Day’s Night,” “Help!” and “Magical Mystery Tour” — died on Tuesday in London. He was 82.

RIP Victor.

I remember seeing him in "Under Milk Wood" with Richard Burton and l Elizabeth Taylor.  He was a fantastic actor.  He will be sadly missed.

R.I.P. Nora.

She will be sadly missed.  She worked a lot with Meryl Streep.  I think the last movie together was Julie and Julia.

Front page news in the Times (and an excellent obituary). Thanks for posting the link, Higashimori.

Very sad news, indeed. R.I.P., Nora Ephron.

Woman's Hour in the UK played part of an interview from 1999 when Jenni Murray spoke to Nora.  It was so nice to hear her voice.

Two nice features about Ephron in today's Times:

Gail Collins: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/28/opinion/nora-ephron-the-best-mailgirl-ever.html

Alessandra Stanley: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/28/fashion/nora-ephrons-hollywood-ending.html

Plus, Clyde Haberman has this on his "City Room" blog: http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/28/remembering-nora-ephron-a-reporter-at-heart/

Haberman quotes Pete Hamill, who worked alongside Haberman and Ephron at the New York Post in the 1960s:

Quote
“I remember her typing hard on a story, so deep into it that she could have been alone in the growly crowd,” Mr. Hamill recalled. He added, “She never wrote down to anybody. She didn’t think her task was to make the audience dumber, while reading or sitting in a movie house. She certainly did not add a single sentence to the long dismal history of human lousiness.”
