RIP Mr Rooney.

I liked him very much in the Andy  Hardy movies. They were on the Saturday morning movie shows for kids.

His portrayal of Bill in the movie of the same name was fantastic. He was so believable in the part.

Wow, Mickey Rooney.  Just saw him in a cameo recently in the 2011 Muppets film.

Such a great talent.  Rest In Peace, Mr. Rooney.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the great Spanish writer from Columbia, famous for his novels of magic realism, has died at 87. His most well-known novels include One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera, which was made into a movie a few years ago. He won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1982. My favorite novel of his is a short book called Of Love and Other Demons. R.I.P.

Both he and Elvis covered an Eddy Arnold song, You Don't Know Me.  Vale appeared in Goodfellas and Casino, but I don't recall.

Maya Angelou has died at 86. I haven't read a lot of her work, but did take the opportunity to listen to her when she spoke at my college back around 2006. http://www.nbcnews.com/#/news/us-news/renowned-poet-author-maya-angelou-dies-86-n116241

I'm not familiar with Skye McCole Bartusiak's work, but unfortunately she has died at just 21 years old. I see she was in the Mel Gibson movie The Patriot, which I haven't seen, along with several others I've heard of or am familiar with (my mom likes the Love Comes Softly movies, which Skye costarred in the first). Always so sad to hear about such young people dying. http://www.people.com/article/skye-mcCole-bartusiak-dies-21?xid=rss-fullcontent

Since James Garner and Eastwood worked together, I've merged several posts about Garner with the thread "R.I.P. James Garner," started by Lucky Punk, in the News Forum.

Say, didn't Scott Eastwood recently co-star in a recent remake, reboot...or whatever?

Yeah, he was in the newest one. I haven't seen it yet.

According to IMDB, Marilyn was 64.

I haven't, either.  I was curious, so I looked her up and Wikipedia has her at 65:  5/07/49 - 8/05/14 so she turned 65 only a few months ago.  Marilyn Burns/Wikipedia  I saw the one that came out in 2003, starring Jessica Biel.  You could tell the director liked her!

Oh, that's interesting. IMDb has her birthday as being July 5, 1950. Hopefully all the websites will get that straightened out with the correct info.

The original Chain Saw is my favorite horror movie of all time. It's been a long time since I've seen it, but I think it's due for another with this news. She was really terrific in that role.
