Harold Ramis has passed away, at the age of 69, as a result of “complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis,” which he had been battling since 2010. May he rest in peace. He will best be remembered by his fans as Egon Spengler from Ghostbusters, as well as being the co-writer of both that, as well as Groundhog Day, in addition to many other great films which I now realize I haven't had the good fortune to see.

He will be greatly missed. And with that news, I’m off to rewatch the first Ghostbusters movie, in his memory. Egon was always my favorite of the team.
calliopes_pen: (redscharlach care for some tea Dalek)
Arthur Rankin, Jr. has passed away at the age of 89. May he rest in peace. He was consulting and executive producer on the 80’s version of Thundercats, producer and director for The Last Unicorn, as well as half of Rankin and Bass. Lord of the Rings fans may remember that he produced The Hobbit and The Return of the King in the 70’s.

Maximilian Schell has passed away at the age of 83, as a result of “a sudden and serious illness.” May he rest in peace. I mostly remember him from The Black Hole (1979), and his role of Hamlet--since the latter aired on MST3K.

John Cacavas has passed away at the age of 83. May he rest in peace. He was a film and tv composer. Among his work was the theme for Kojak, which I’ve been watching every Sunday evening lately, courtesy of Me-TV. I haven’t seen the movies he did that MST3K showed. The only films he did composition for which I have seen appear to be The Satanic Rites of Dracula, and Horror Express.
calliopes_pen: (fab_jupiter Never Forget Tara)
Russell Johnson passed away yesterday, at the age of 89, as a result of kidney failure. May he rest in peace. He will be best remembered by most as the Professor on Gilligan’s Island. MST3K fans will also remember him from This Island Earth, which featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie.

Hal Sutherland has passed away. As of the post I link to, there’s no word as to his age, when he died, or how. He was the director of almost every episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series, and was the co-founder of Filmation Studios. May he rest in peace.
calliopes_pen: (sallymn Brigadier raining)
Roger Lloyd-Pack has passed away, at the age of 69, after a battle with pancreatic cancer. May he rest in peace. I’ve only seen him in the Doctor Who two-parter The Age of Steel and Rise of the Cybermen, where he played John Lumic.

calliopes_pen: (sallymn Brigadier raining)
James Avery has passed away at the age of 65. May he rest in peace. He was reportedly in the hospital “for surgery to treat an undisclosed illness, but his condition took a turn for the worse.” While he is best known for his role on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I also remember him as the voice of Shredder in the 80’s version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He also provided voice work for Real Ghostbusters, and many other shows.

calliopes_pen: (blairprovence goodbye Sarah Jane)
Peter O’Toole has passed away at the age of 81, after suffering a long illness. May he rest in peace. I loved watching him whenever he popped up. A short list of what I loved him in: Stardust (2007), High Spirits (1988), Casanova (2005), Supergirl (1984), and Svengali (1983). High Spirits was one of my favorite movies when I was little, and I watched Stardust for the first time this year, before sign-ups closed for Yuletide.  He will be greatly missed.
calliopes_pen: (iconsbycurtana Egyptology Evie)

Danny Wells passed away on November 28th, at the age of 72.  May he rest in peace. I only ever knew him as Luigi on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show--the only episode I really remember (which Kotaku links to) is where Luigi was possessed, and Ernie Hudson is dragged in to help.

Also, a quick note about the weather headed here:  I'll be riding out the ice and snow storm (which begins sooner than expected, around 3 PM, and ends tomorrow night) combination at the other house, which has limited dial-up.  When I get back over here, I'll update everyone on anything that transpired.   Paducah appears to be in the area listed as having a chance for "isolated power outages." Rather than the notch we hit (according to a chart the local weatherman has) in 2009, of "complete and total collapse of basic infrastructure." So, there's that.

Despite rumors to the contrary, which apparently panicked a reporter, Jim Cantore is not currently in the area. (Which means I must link--again--to this little song a local radio station played in the aftermath of the ice storm back then.)

 

calliopes_pen: (blairprovence goodbye Sarah Jane)
Nigel Davenport has passed away at the age of 85. May he rest in peace. I remember him best in the role of Van Helsing in Dan Curtis’ 1974 version of Bram Stoker's Dracula (the Jack Palance version). According to IMDB, he also appeared in Without A Clue, as Lord Smithwick. MST3K fans may remember him from Phase IV.
calliopes_pen: (taibhrigh hear the Ood song)
Marcia Wallace has passed away at the age of 70. May she rest in peace. She may be most famous for her role as Carol on The Bob Newhart Show, as well as voicing Mrs. Krabappel on The Simpsons.

I also remember her from Teen Witch, My Mom’s A Werewolf, and Ghoulies III: Ghoulies Go to College—Teen Witch coincidentally aired earlier today on ABC Family.
calliopes_pen: (inthegiggleloop Victoria Winters revival)
Anthony Hinds has passed away at the age of 91. May he rest in peace. He was the producer (in addition to writing screenplays for several horror movies) that was in charge of Hammer Films after his father co-founded the studio, steering them more in the direction of horror.
calliopes_pen: (taibhrigh hear the Ood song)
Tom Clancy has passed away at the age of 66. May he rest in peace. All that’s known so far is that he died in a Baltimore hospital.
calliopes_pen: (iconsbycurtana Egyptology Evie)
Karen Black has passed away, at the age of 74, after a long battle with ampullary cancer. May she rest in peace. I mostly remember her from Trilogy of Terror, Burnt Offerings, and the 80’s remake of Invaders From Mars.
calliopes_pen: (brown_betty Bad Bat)
Michael Ansara has passed away, as a result of complications stemming from Alzheimer’s disease, at the age of 91. May he rest in peace. He is perhaps best remembered as the Klingon Kang in Star Trek, and voiced Mr. Freeze in Batman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond.
calliopes_pen: (kcscribbler Holmes Watson travel friends)
Eileen Brennan has passed away, at the age of 80, following a long battle with bladder cancer. May she rest in peace. I loved her in Clue and Murder By Death. I’ve never seen The Cheap Detective, so I’ll have to track that one down someday.

Reading through her IMDB page, I see that she was also in the 1995 remake of Freaky Friday, as well as The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.
calliopes_pen: (taibhrigh Daniel Jackson knowledge)
Mel Smith has passed away, as the result of a heart attack, at the age of 60. May he rest in peace. Until I read through various sites, I wasn’t sure where I had even heard the name before.

He directed Radioland Murders (which I loved) and was in The Princess Bride as The Albino.
calliopes_pen: (kcscribbler Holmes Watson travel friends)
Cory Monteith has passed away, at the age of 31. The cause of death is not currently known, and an autopsy is scheduled for Monday. May he rest in peace. Not being a fan of Glee, I checked IMDB to see if I had ever actually seen him in anything. Maybe Smallville, since I watched Thirst (IMDB says he played a frat cowboy guy—sounds vaguely familiar) sometime before I quit bothering with the show.
calliopes_pen: (taibhrigh hear the Ood song)
Annette Funicello has passed away at the age of 70, as a result of complications related to multiple sclerosis. May she rest in peace.

Also rest in peace to: Roger Ebert, Jess Franco, Bigas Luna, Carmine Infantino, George Gladir, Basil Copper, Jane Henson, Les Blank, and anyone else that died in the last 2 weeks that I’ve managed to miss due to massive real life concerns. I only just found out most of those today.
calliopes_pen: (rosiemoon rude not ginger 10)
Malachi Throne has passed away at the age of 84. May he rest in peace. Star Trek fans will remember him as Commodore Mendez in the TOS episode The Menagerie, as well as the leader of the Talosians in The Cage, and was Senator Pardek in the Star Trek: TNG two-parter Unification. He played False Face in the Adam West Batman series—I recently managed to catch an episode with him, courtesy of ME-TV. He was the narrator for the original 1977 trailer for Star Wars. A quick check of IMDB, tells me he was also the narrator of the cartoon Visionaries: Knights of the Magic Light.

Robin Sachs has passed away at the age of 61. May he rest in peace. I will always remember him best as the delightfully evil Ethan Rayne on Buffy—I always loved his episodes.

Looking through his IMDB listings, I didn’t realize until now that he had popped up as a professor on Torchwood: Miracle Day. He will be missed.
