" Richard Griffiths Dead: 'Harry Potter' Actor Dies At 65 "

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/29/richard-griffiths-dead-harry-potter_n_2978478.html?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular

 
Quote
LONDON — Richard Griffiths was one of the great British stage actors of his generation, a heavy man with a light touch, whether in Shakespeare or Neil Simon. But for millions of movie fans, he will always be grumpy Uncle Vernon, the least magical of characters in the fantastical "Harry Potter" movies.

Griffiths died Thursday at University Hospital in Coventry, central England, from complications following heart surgery, his agent, Simon Beresford, said. He was 65.

"Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe paid tribute to the actor Friday, saying that "any room he walked into was made twice as funny and twice as clever just by his presence."

"I am proud to say I knew him," Radcliffe said.

RIP Richard Griffiths

I especially liked him in the UK TV series Pie in the Sky. 

65 is so young these days.

I agree, Lin. I think dying in the 70's nowadays is early, too.

Roger Ebert has died. He just announced that his cancer had returned, but I really didn't expect him to die so soon. This is tremendously sad. He died so young, and he was such an inspiration to so many people. Roger Ebert was an amazing man. He lost his ability to eat, to speak, to live life normally. Facing what he faced on a daily basis, most of us, myself included, would become bitter, collapsing under the weight of the enormity of of the problems which we faced each and every day. Not Roger Ebert. No matter what he was going through, he maintained a positive attitude, his zest for life, and his love for movies. He was first diagnosed with cancer in 2002, so he fought this horrible disease for 10 year. When celebrities die, it doesn't usually affect me but this really is devastating. Rest in Peace Roger Ebert. We will not see the likes of you again. You were one of the good ones.

This has been interpreted in conservative circles as an attack by me, "a liberal mouthpiece." Not my intention. I tweeted out of love. If I'd had more words, I might have said he choose the wrong place and the wrong time. I was NOT implying that Clint Eastwood is "old and senile," as one right-wing blog charged.

He is old. I am old. Once we were both young and drank Guinness in a bar in Chicago, when he was still The Man With No Name. He was to move on from that evening and achieve, as actor and director, undeniable greatness. He is the opposite of senile. He is brave. He has a supremely intelligent artistic sensibility. He knows his instrument. Backstage in the briefing, he was handed the wrong sheet music.

May God Bless Mr. Gordon Stoker

Gordon Stoker

Gordon Stoker behind Ed Sullivan & Presley



Here is Mr. Stoker again with Presley, I believe around the time of the "How Great Thou Art" sessions, one of Presley's best albums.  *Interestingly, Elvis was dissatisfied about the poor quality of his current soundtrack albums, citing albums by bands such as The Beatles that had much better production, so he was definitely up on current sounds/trends (even though that wouldn’t begin to show for another year or so).

Yes, very sad indeed.  Movie critics' opinions never sway my decision to see any given film but I did enjoy watching the banther between him and Gene Siskel.

Rest in peace, Mr. Ebert.

Today is a sad day, because the father of cinema fantasy has left this world. Ray Harryhausen died today. He lived a rich life and enriched the lifes of countless cinema lovers and film makers. I was lucky to have known him, years ago he ha...d invited me and Christiane to a wonderful evening at his house. Over the years we had exchanged letters which resulted in discussing a possible project. It wasn't meant to be but the memories will never fade away.

A fitting tribute, Mike.

Losing a person we know that is very sad and very painful.   But it is great that Ray Harryhausen fully enjoyed his fantastic life I think..... :(
Rest in peace, Ray.

RIP, Jeanne Cooper. You were fabulous! I'm so glad that even though I don't approve of plastic surgery, you had a great (plastic surgery) job done, and didn't end up looking something like a lion...But I digress...
