Borgnine was both a great actor and when needed a terrific character in his own right...normally you get one or the other rarely both.

Very Sad

First film I saw with him in that I can remember was The Black Hole when I was about six or so. Only watching it with dad because he was a big John Barry fan. Then it was Airwolf around the same time. Forget what a wide and lengthy CV he had really. Been meaning to see Marty for a while. Need to get a hold of it and maybe From Here to Eternity again.

He was 95 years old. Some press coverage says he is best remembered for McHale's Navy, which may be true, but I remember him most vividly from the Poseidon Adventure.

RIP, Miss Holm. The first movie I saw her in was "Tom Sawyer" where she played Aunt Polly. She and Sinatra also made a film called "The Tender Trap."

Welsh actress Angharad Rees dies

(UKPA) – 3 hours ago



Welsh actress Angharad Rees has died following a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Rees, who starred in BBC drama series Poldark in the 1970s after first appearing on screen in The Way We Live Now in 1969, also enjoyed an extensive theatre career.

A statement released by her family on Saturday night said: "The family of Angharad Rees (McAlpine) are deeply saddened to announce that Angharad passed away peacefully today with her family at her bedside in London, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

"She will be greatly missed by her family and friends."

Rees, who was 63, was married to the late Dynasty actor Christopher Cazenove for more than 20 years and they had two sons together, Linford and Rhys.

Linford, the elder of the two, died in a car crash on the M11 in Essex in 1999 aged 26.

She went on to marry David McAlpine in 2005, with whom she lived in London.

Rees, who played Demelza in Poldark, also had a role in cult classic Jack the Ripper film Hands Of The Ripper, while on stage she appeared in A Winter's Tale, Richard II and Romeo And Juliet.

In addition to her acting success, she also founded an eponymously titled jewellery design company based in Knightsbridge, with her pieces featured in the film Elizabeth, The Golden Age. Her family said she remained an active supporter of the arts and was an honorary fellow of Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.

Her funeral will be private but there are plans for a service in celebration of her life which will be announced at a later date.

Rees had a rare natural beauty. Not many actresses could pull off the combination of innocence and psychic torture as effectively as she did as Anna in HANDS OF THE RIPPER.

RIP.

JonLord, founding member of Deep Purple, and classic Mk II member (Machine Head: Smoke on the Water, with Richie Blackmore, Ian Paice, Ian Gillan and Roger Glover), died of illness, at age 71 this week.

He was Purple's mainstay keyboard whiz, in a heavy, one-guitar and keyboard driven band. He retired from the band in 2002. Mainstays Paice, Gillan and Glover continue to guide the current Purple line-up.

So that's it, there will never be another classic-line-up Purple re-union with Lord gone to the great Highway-Star in the sky.

Lord in his Purple prime:

The Tudors actor Simon Ward dies after long illness


The British screen and stage actor Simon Ward has died after a long illness, his agent has confirmed.

Ward appeared in several films throughout the 1970s and 1980s, including The Three Musketeers.

He also starred as Bishop Gardiner in The Tudors and as Sir Monty in the popular BBC television series Judge John Deed.

A statement released by his agent said he passed away peacefully with his wife Alexandra and daughters at his bedside.

The son of a car salesman from Beckenham in Kent, Ward joined the National Youth Theatre at the age of 13 where he remained for eight years.

After attending the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, he worked in repertory in Northampton, Birmingham and Oxford, and occasionally in London's West End.

Early career

His break into the theatre came in 1967 when he played the lead in Joe Orton's play, Loot, which lead to television and film roles.

In 1972, he gained national acclaim for his portrayal of Churchill in Richard Attenborough's epic film Young Winston, which featured a distinguished cast including Anthony Hopkins and Anne Bancroft.

The following year, he played the Duke of Buckingham in The Three Musketeers.

In 1974, Ward was cast as the author and veterinarian, James Herriot, in the original film adaptation of All Creatures Great and Small.

All Creatures Great and Small later became a successful BBC television series with actor Christopher Timothy taking the lead role played by Ward in the film adaptation.

In more recent years Ward returned to theatre, touring the country with plays such as Alan Bennett's The Madness of George III and Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband.

In the late 1980s Ward was a victim of a street attack that was never solved and baffled the police.

Ward's daughter is the actress, Sophie Ward; his youngest daughter, Kitty, is married to the comedian, Michael McIntyre.
