97, on a vegetarian diet. Not too shabby. But stupid pneumonia.

Doris Day wasn't one of my favourites, but she was charming and it's always sad to lose a living link to classic Hollywood. The only big stars left now are Kirk, Olivia and Angela, and we can't expect to have them around much longer.

Sidney Poitier is also still going, about the same age as Angela Lansbury, though he was a few years later breaking through

Also, please let's not forget Larry Storch.

Depends how we want to define it I guess. I think I was subconsciously reaching for stars (big stars) who go back to the 40s. It was only a few years ago that a list of living actors with that criteria was 3x the size.

I found his much of his humor insufferable, but no one has mentioned one of the stars of McHale's Navy, The World's Greatest Athlete, The Apple Dumpling Gang, Cannonball Run II and the Shaggy DA dying.

Yeah I kind of grew up on him, particularly on the Carol Burnett show. And yeah, not my kind of humor - now - but certainly another small bit of my childhood memories is gone.

Oh, Tim Conway, for those who don't know (probably most non-Americans).

I.M. Pei, architect extraordinaire, dead at 102.

He was the subject of documentaries, so there's a film connection. Designer of the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, the East Building of the National Gallery in Washington D.C., The Bank of China in Hong Kong and of course the Louvre Entrance.
Personal film goals for 2019.

I watched some Jean-Claude Brisseau films before I found out about his horrible behavior. I saw these films and liked them:
-Noce Blanche
-Un Jeu Brutal
-La Fille de nulle part

Just finding out about his death now. I have been out of the loop.

I don't know how I missed this for a whole month, but David Brion Davis died on April 14. This has little to do with movies (he has 1 imdb credit for appearing in a doc), but I felt compelled to mention him because he should appear on any short list of greatest American historians, ever. I first read his work in high school and more than a decade later relied on him tremendously in my qualifying exams in grad school. No other historian did more to expand our knowledge and understanding of slavery as a historical institution. Though he emerged in the postwar world among a generation of historians devoted to the subject, he was the most effective cutting through centuries of myths and stereotypes. That we can now watch movies that depict slavery without the pure shittiness of movies like Gone with the Wind is due in some part to his work.
