Death hunt ????
Always loved that film.


Yes, and The White Buffalo, too, another Bronson movie.  He's had a long career, having appeared many times on television and numerous films.  Looks like he played Frank Morris in a tv movie entitled Alcatraz: The Whole Shocking Story (1980).  There's a few still yet to come and you can see more here: Ed Lauter/IMDB

This text is almost impossible to read for someone (like me) using the Mocha scheme for this site. Of course, I can select it and read it here or paste it elsewhere, but I just wondered why it was colored lime green in the first place? It seems an odd choice for a man who just died.

Apparently, lime green is the new black for obituaries.

I only just learned that Tommy Morrison passed away recently, on September 1: The New York Times  
I remember watching his winning bout against George Foreman and seeing him in Rocky V opposite Sylvester Stallone.


Foreman and Morrison, 1993



Stallone & Morrison in Rocky V, 1990



R.I.P. Mr. Morrison

 " Tom Clancy, Best-Selling Master of Military Thrillers, Dies at 66 "

 R.I.P. Mr. Tom Clancy.

I attempted, more than once, to read The Hunt For Red October.  I gave up after the third try.   A friend gave me the 2nd and 3rd books in the movie series and I enjoyed those very much.  I read a third and although I liked it, haven't read one by him since. 

Patriot Games (1987)



Clear And Present Danger (1989)



Tom Clancy's Op-Center (1995)



Maybe someday I'll give this one another try but will probably need to have one of his reference books handy to get all the way through.

The Hunt For Red October (1984)



R.I.P. Mr. Clancy

Doris Lessing the author has died aged 94.

This is sad news. An interview by Woman's Hour was replayed this morning on radio 4. She was a remarkable woman.

RIP

I don't find this news that sad. The woman was 94 years old. How long do you think women can realistically live?

I'm willing to bet her family thinks so.  :-\

I agree, and their feelings would be understandable, but since we are not members of her family, we don't have to express the same sentiments ;)
