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.

It's been years for me so I'm due for another viewing, too.

 Very sad that Lorin Maazel died after Claudio Abbado this year.... :'(    I was very honored to be listening to their concerts.

Lorin Maazel, a former child prodigy who went on to become the music director of the New York Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Vienna State Opera and several other ensembles and companies around the world, and who was known for his incisive and sometimes extreme interpretations, died on Sunday at his home in Castleton, Va. He was 84.

I'm sorry to say that I just learned that Robin Williams has passed away. I apologize for not posting any links or sources but I'm a little upset at this news.  Could somebody else, please?  I tuned in to CNN and this is how I learned of this very sad news.

Suspected suicide ... he was only 63.

Williams' publicist Mara Buxbaum told The Hollywood Reporter: "Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."

Thank you.

Wow, I'm almost speechless.  Robin Williams provided many humorous, funny and happy moments over the years.  This truly is very sad.  My heart goes out to his family and friends.

I almost want to cry, I'm not ashamed to say. Some celebrities are so good and popular that you sort of grow up with them and if you like their performances and personalities, it hurts to hear news like this. Almost like you're losing a friend or even relative.  I remember when Mr. Williams hit the talk show circuit recently to plug his new show. I captured a lot of them on my dvr and my boy laughed at his silliness. It was fun sharing those laughs with my son.

The news of Robin Williams' death was such a shock. He was such a consummate actor.

He was truly a comic genius and his death will leave a large gap in many lives.

Like so many other comedians Robin suffered from depression. Someone who could make the world laugh but could not enjoy the happiness he gave to other people is so very sad.

RIP Robin.

Such a terrible news early this morning ... how could I forget all the parts he played in so many unforgettable movies ?

- The World According To Gap
- Good Morning Vietnam !
- Dead Poets Society
- Hook
- Mrs Doubtfire
- Jumanji
- Will Hunting
- Night At The Museum
- Photo Obsession

.... and so many other ones

I loved his smile, his sparkling eyes, like everyone I imagine.

Reposez en Paix Mr Williams.

I am stunned.  I remember first seeing Robin Williams on Mork & Mindy.  I never saw Popeye but recall the media hype surrounding the making of that film.  Next was The World According To Garp which I thought was very good.  Of course, there are numerous other performances on film, too many to mention here, that I loved.  Sad as I am about this news I can only imagine what his family is going through.  My thoughts and prayers are with them.

Thank you, Robin, for so many wonderful moments you provided over the years. 

May God bless you, sir.  Rest in peace.

That would be Lauren Bacall, Christopher ... oh well, you're too young. ;)

Humphrey Bogart's Muse, on and offscreen. As in their first film together, To Have and Have Not

Quote
“You know you don’t have to act with me, Steve,” her character says to Bogart’s in the movie’s most memorable scene. “You don’t have to say anything, and you don’t have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow.”

Another sad loss to the world of entertainment.

Lauren Bacall was one of my favourites. Her movies with husband Humphrey Bogart stand the test of time and I still watch them now and then.

She was so beautiful and her wonderful husky voice set her apart from others of her day.

RIP Lauren.

Two more Lauren Bacall appreciations from the New York Times:

That Voice, and the Woman Attached: Lauren Bacall’s Debut in "To Have and Have Not" (by Times film critic Manohla Dargis)

The Bacall Standard (David Brooks on Bacall, Bogart and Raymond Chandler)

And this Letter to the Editor:

Quote
Re "Lauren Bacall: 1924-2014: In a Bygone Hollywood, She Purred Every Word" (obituary, front page, Aug. 13):

As a cabdriver in college, I once drove Lauren Bacall home from the Broadway theater where she was appearing in “Applause.”

A man came out of a door on a deserted street in the theater district and hailed me. He said, “Wait here.”

A woman got in the back seat.

I paid her no heed until she said, “The Dakota, please.”

That unmistakable voice sent shivers down my spine. We had a lovely talk, and she tipped well.

She was a quintessential New Yorker. She is missed.
