Mickey Rooney - Still Dead at 93. No signs of a resurrection for the small one so far. RIP.

I once drove Hunter S Thompson to a strip club, then to a Waffle House.


He's still dead too.

I once watched Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas pour each other tea. Both still living.

Re: Joseph Heller still dead, still at 76

At 98 Eli Wallach gives up acting for good. Rather ugly news but bad things happen.

From the Telegraph:

......and Tuco takes a bath




..........last but not least...Tuco at the gun shop....

I can't believe Wallach died just hours before Heller.

Re: Joseph Heller still dead, still at 76

I used to confuse Eli Wallach with Martin Balsam, not really sure why. I think Balsam died a while ago.

I always confused Martin Balsam with Martin Landau. I bet Barbara Bain didn't.

Re: Joseph Heller still dead, still at 76

Martin Landau was great as Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood. I've often wondered what his Mission Impossible was like.

Oh, also kickass in Crimes and Misdemeanors. As was Jerry Orbach of course.

Time distortion messes with your head. Good reefer is a great training ground and reference point for this simple fact. And remember - If there where no time, everything would happen at once. Now that's chaos.

Re: Joseph Heller still dead, still at 76

Holy Sh*t - no one posted that James Garner is still dead. He was a great actor and I loved him in Maverick - I'm so old I remember this series and would stop playing outside just to watch it. A massive sacrifice for a young kid. Anyway, I hope James resurrects himself. He was great.

James Garner dies at 86; TV antihero of 'Maverick,' 'Rockford Files' [LA Times Obit]

http://www.latimes.com/local/obituar...ry.html#page=1

From above link

If Sam Spade was a tough guy, Jim Rockford was … well, he could throw a punch, but he didn't like to because it hurt his hand..

Rockford's idea of a good time was eating Oreos and fishing with his dad, not spending a lost weekend with some smoky blonde. And tough talk just wasn't his thing; when some hood was beating the tar out of him, Rockford sputtered, "Does your mother have any idea what you do for a living?"

Still, the perennially broke investigator always managed to set things right, and by the end of every episode of "The Rockford Files," Rockford — a.k.a. actor James Garner — also gave viewers something they weren't getting from other tough guy heroes: laughs.

Garner, a master of light comedy who won an Emmy as Rockford and earlier had shot to fame as a charming and dry-witted gambler on the hit TV western "Maverick," died Saturday at his Los Angeles home. He was 86.

Re: Joseph Heller still dead, still at 76

I was always a big Garner fan dating back to Maverick as well. I always thought he was the coolest of the 3 Mavericks.

He was one of the most likeable actors ever and in my mind made everything he was in better because he was in it. Known more for TV than movies he did have some great movie roles. Some of my favorites were The Great Escape, 36 Hours, The Wheeler Dealers, and Support Your Local Gunfighter.

R.I.P.

I get so upset every time this thread gets bumped. It just reminds me that I'll never get to read Catch 22 again. RIP.

Huge fan of the Rockford Files as a kid. Garner definitely seemed like a nice guy.

Guess I should wait a few years then make a thread about him.
