Lupita Tovar has passed away at the age of 106. May she rest in peace. If you don’t recognize the name, she played the character of Eva in Dracula (1931)’s Spanish version. It was filmed at night on the same sets as the English language version. I always preferred her version of Eva/Mina over the English version’s. She was also in the Spanish language remake of The Cat and the Canary, which I have never seen.

I will be rewatching the Spanish version of Dracula (1931) tonight in her honor. I had planned to watch it anyway, so this is a good excuse for it. The DVD has a quick bit with her in The Road To Dracula, too.

Tony Neyman has also passed away, at the age of 80. May he rest in peace. MST3K fans and bad movie fans will remember him as the Master in Manos: The Hands of Fate. It’s the 50th anniversary of Manos this year, and Neyman reprised his role for the upcoming follow-up film Manos Returns prior to his death.

It’s rather difficult to narrow down what I want to nominate for this year’s Yuletide, when they open for that on September 9th. It will be three fandoms allowed. As previously stated, Crimson Peak is a definite one for me. Dark Shadows (1991) is one I go back and forth on so it isn't a total lock for slot 2. So here’s my list without those two:

Penny Dreadful (someone else will probably nominate this, but there are certain characters I want to see)
The Innocents (1961)
Suspiria (1977)
Dracula, by Bram Stoker
Dracula (TV 1968) (Someone else might get that)
Ghostbusters (1984) (Someone else will probably nominate this)
Fright Night (1985)
Bride of Frankenstein (1935)(someone nominated it last year)
House on Haunted Hill (1959)

Oh, and for those that have access to Comet TV, as of 7 PM CST next Sunday (and every Sunday night thereafter) they will begin airing Mystery Science Theater 3000. First up is Manos: The Hands of Fate, followed by Teenagers From Outer Space. Monday nights, they will begin airing Poltergeist: The Legacy instead of the 90's version of The Outer Limits.

I have 14 invites for Imzy, if anyone requires them. Anyone that’s interested, just PM your e-mail address, and I’ll send it your way.

(Edited because I misheard. It isn't tonight, it's next Sunday night when MST3K begins. So just keep in mind that it begins on Sunday, September 4th at 7 PM CST.)

James Horner passed away yesterday, at the age of 61, after his plane crashed in a field. May he rest in peace. He was an Oscar winning composer who worked on many movies over the decades, including these: The Rocketeer, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, Krull, Willow, Jumanji, Hocus Pocus, and Aliens. For MST3K fans, he also worked on theme music for Deathstalker And The Warriors From Hell.

Dick Van Patten passed away at the age of 86, due to complications from diabetes. May he rest in peace. I never watched Eight Is Enough, so I believe I mostly recall him from Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Spaceballs, and The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking (1988).

calliopes_pen: (perletwo_ljcozy Illyana says read)
Tanith Lee passed away on May 24th, at the age of 67, after a battle with breast cancer. May she rest in peace. While I have never read a single book of hers, I plan to rectify that very soon. I located ebook copies of Red As Blood, and Sabella, since I never even spotted a single copy of anything by her in a used bookstore in years of searching.

Betsy Palmer passed away from natural causes at the age of 88. May she rest in peace. She was best known as Mrs. Pamela Voorhees, Jason’s mother, in the first Friday the 13th.

Alberto De Martino has passed away at the age of 85. May he rest in peace. MST3K fans may know two of his movies: Puma Man and Operation Double 007. While I loved the former, I haven’t yet seen the latter episode, so I’ll be tracking it down.
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: (dirkdigital Don't turn on light MST3K)
Just a reminder: The MST3K Turkey Day marathon begins at 11 AM CST, over here. Joel Hodgson will be hosting as they show six episodes.
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.

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.

How Was SFSketchFest/Best of RiffTrax? I managed to go to the Manos screening. Due to an awful movie (one of the Wayans brothers spoofing the Paranormal Activity franchise—I walked in during what seemed to be the guy being jealous as he watched someone loudly having sex with a ghost; not being interested in watching this moment with Dad, we turned and left, opting to stay in the hall until it finished) running too long, Rifftrax wouldn’t have had time for the trivia/joke cards at the start. So the manager let everyone vote—we decided even if it went overly long, we wanted it. Things were fine, until midway through one of the shorts—the power in the whole theater went out. 5-10 minutes later, it came back, and we started where we left off. Someone that had been there for the previous showing (and its interruption by tornado and power outage) said it had happened at that same point, too. The manager (who also personally went in and cleaned up after the previous viewing of that movie) came in and apologized.

Unfortunately, the heat didn’t come back on. Instead, about 20 minutes before the end, the air conditioning was going full blast—so I had my coat on. Got out around 9:45 PM, and made it home shortly before the sleet (which the Weather Channel has dubbed Winter Storm Khan—feel free to insert your own Kirk scream here) started. Outside of all of that, I have to say it was great.
