 '' Omar Sharif, 83, a Star in ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ and ‘Doctor Zhivago,’ Dies ''      Very sad news..... :(

 http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/11/movies/omar-sharif-a-star-in-dr-zhivago-dies-at-83.html?emc=edit_na_20150710&nlid=51580126&ref=cta&_r=0

 
Quote
Omar Sharif, the Egyptian actor who rode out of the desert in the 1962 screen epic “Lawrence of Arabia” into a glamorous if brief reign as an international star in films like “Doctor Zhivago” and “The Night of the Generals,” died on Friday in Cairo. He was 83.

His death, at a hospital, was caused by a heart attack, said his agent, Steve Kenis.

Mr. Sharif — who later became as well known for his mastery of bridge as he was for his acting — was a commanding, darkly handsome presence onscreen. He was multilingual as well, and comfortable in almost any role or cultural setting.

He had appeared in a number of Egyptian films before the British director David Lean added him to the cast of “Lawrence of Arabia,” a freewheeling depiction of the real-life exploits of the British adventurer T. E. Lawrence, who led Arab fighters in a series of battles against Turkish occupiers. Peter O’Toole starred in the title role.

Sad news, but a nice obituary. I meant to post it earlier. Thanks, Higashimori.

He seems to have been a true cosmopolitan, a rare thing in today's world. R.I.P.

I just recognized Bikel from the second photo above. He did an episode of Columbo in the '70s where he played a genius.

Tributes have poured in for Cilla Black, one of Britain's best-loved television presenters, following her death at the age of 72.

Born Priscilla White, she started out working in the cloakroom at the Cavern club, where The Beatles were first spotted, before taking to the stage herself.

The band championed Black and introduced her to their manager Brian Epstein, who signed her.

Black released her first single in 1963 and the following year had two number one hits, You're My World and Anyone Who Had a Heart. She went on to release 14 albums.

‘F Troop’ Actress Melody Patterson Dies at 66

Sad news.  This is one of many shows my brother introduced to me when we were kids.  I always got a kick out of Larry Storch's character, Agarn.

Patterson as Wranger Jane on F Troop.  I have to admit, she was one of my earliest tv crushes.



With Ken Berry, Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch



God bless you Ms. Patterson.  May you Rest In Peace.

RIP Mr. Craven.  A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors was an instant favorite of mine.



LOL, I used to have the cassette single of the title song by Dokken.  "Cassingle" never caught on...   :D

Here is the New York Times obituary:

And a very nice tribute in the same newspaper:

As the headline in the New York Times put it:

Oliver Sacks, Neurologist Who Wrote About the Brain’s Quirks, Dies at 82

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/31/science/oliver-sacks-dies-at-82-neurologist-and-author-explored-the-brains-quirks.html

Besides the obituary, there is a tribute by one of the paper's literary critics, Michiko Kakutani:

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/31/arts/oliver-sacks-wrote-awakenings-and-cast-light-on-the-interconnectedness-of-life.html

Quote
His patients have lost an erudite and compassionate doctor. The world has lost a writer of immense talent and heart, a writer who helped illuminate the wonders, losses and consolations of the human condition.
