Truly sad news. At least she did seem to lead a fulfilled life even outside of the spotlight for many years. I do think she was hugely underrated as an actress and felt it was a shame she got so little dramatic roles outside of the cute films, musicals and rom coms. Thus while I love her in anything I could never latch onto most of her films. Her inherent strengths are really crucial to the 1956 MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH and even Hitchcock felt she was one of the best actresses he ever worked with.

Turns out we lost Rip Torn on July 9. I only found out flicking through Time magazine weirdly enough. Not everyone's cup of tea, but the man seemed great in his way. A true character and a great loss.

R.I.P. David Hedison, still one of the only two actors to have played Felix Leiter in the Bond series more than once.

He would have been an excellent Bond villain, perhaps even the Blofield by which all others would have been judged. RIP, Rutger Hauer.

Great loss. I liked him right down to the Guinness adverts he did. He was the one redeeming feature of the Fatherland adaptation.

A Bond villain who never was, indeed. RIP.

R.I.P.

A truly memorable performance in Blade Runner.

Too right, Hilly, regarding the Fatherland adaptation. Hauer did admirably, but it was a shockingly bad film.

Glad to see I'm not alone. I re-read the book most years and it's a shocking film. Today it'd have been a nice mini-series. Shame Hauer was wasted in it, really.

A grand presence in anything and everything. His eyes showed such bemusement and spoke of a challenge to society at large. He will be sorely missed.
