Orson Bean, who had an eclectic list of acting and appearance credits going back to 1952. If he's remembered at all today, it's probably for his oddball appearance in Being John Malkovich, which I saw at the New York Film Festival back in 1999. In the post-movie Q&A, he was the only person among the entire cast and director who said anything that was interesting.

Actually I remember him best for doing the voice of Bilbo Baggins in the Rankin-Bass The Hobbit, which I saw probably on it's first broadcast in 1977, not long after reading the book for the first time. Still prefer it by a huge margin over Jackson's 10-hour battlefest version.

But you remind me that I need to watch Malkovich again. The list never ends, and the road goes ever on. RIP Mr. Bean.

Two stars of screens small and large died yesterday.

Robert Conrad, 84, known mostly for his lead roles in the TV western/spy hit The Wild Wild West (1965-9) and Baa Baa Black Sheep aka Black Sheep Squadron (1976-8) which yours truly grew up with, back when as a pre-teen I wanted to be a fighter pilot, like half the boys in my grade.
https://deadline.com/2020/02/robert-con ... 202854756/

Volker Spengler, 80, a prominent member of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's stock company, who had lead or prominent roles in 10 of the director's films and TV works, including In einem Jahr mit 13 Monden (1978) and Berlin Alexanderplatz (1980).

Vatroslav Mimica (25 June 1923 – 15 February 2020)

A fascinating career that started at Jadran Film in 1950 and then over the next 30 years included animation work as part of the celebrated Zagreb school, adventure and historical co-productions, as well as more experimental works such as the incredible 'Monday or Tuesday' / 'Ponedjeljak ili utorak' (1966), with its flashbacks and fantastical imagery around memory and perception/recollection during everyday life.

Charles Portis, 86

A novelist best known for True Grit, which has been adapted twice to the screen. A friend of mine once told me True Grit was one of the great works of American literature, and ever since then I've been meaning to read it but never got around to it. Has anyone here read it?

Coffin Joe has died. Brazilian multi-talent José Mojica Marins, director/writer/star/etc of one of the series that really defines what "cult" cinema is all about, has died at 83. The Coffin Joe films, which started with À Meia Noite Levarei Sua Alma / At Midnight I Will Take Your Soul in 1964 are his principal claim to fame, but he worked on dozens of films and TV programs in his 60+ year career.

Wonder why Dogma isn't available for streaming? It's owned by the Weinsteins personally. And they have had other priorities lately, you might say.

Miramax was owned by Disney at the time, and they weren't really sure if Dogma fit their image. So the Weinsteins bought all rights, and released it themselves. Disney's cold feet laid the path clear for them to eventually launch The Weinstein Company.

Now everything is thankfully gone, except those right for that one Kevin Smith movie that nobody get to see. (Nothing has happened with it since Blu-Ray in 2008) So Rip Dogma, I guess.

Jahn Teigen 1949-2020, 70 years

Artist (been in Eurovision Song Contest several times and scored 0 points in many of them),
Comedian (part of the comedy team Prima Vera which did the movie Prima Veras saga om Olav den hellige, a movie complely destroyed by critics)
National Treasure (highest selling male solo artist in the late 80s, I even saw one of his conserts back then)



and yes, he wore that costume in the international final of Eurovision Song Contest

Clive Cussler, 88

A prolific writer of pulpy adventure novels, an embarrassing number of which I read during my early teen years. His novels often revolved around marine/naval themes and included elements of alternative history. Two of those movies were adapted to screen, where they promptly flopped:
- Raise the Titanic (1980)
- Sahara (2005)

I read one of his novels during a flight some years ago (I think it was called Cyclops?). Awful stuff (ludicrous plot and writing so poor even I noticed it) and it didn't help that Dirk Whatshisname was clearly supposed to be the author's alter ego. I had no less than 2 people recommend his books, but that was both my first and last Clive Cussler book.

Still... :rip:

Here's an article in English: https://www.indiewire.com/2020/02/cahie ... 202214044/

Apparently, the new owners came in and are directing them to focus more on French cinema and to be more "chic". And everyone quit. Very weird and interesting situation.

The editorial staff quit. They surely will be replaced and that is maybe for the best, it has lost some edge over the recent years.

I remember seeing (or at least catching a few minutes) of an episode with Ben Affleck. This must have been about 2002, when Affleck had had a short and mostly undistinguished acting career (I still think he's had an undistinguished acting career), and I was wondering why they thought he had anything insightful to say about acting. I also remember Lipton talking about Bounce like it was some sort of masterpiece.

McCoy Tyner, 81

One of the all-time great pianists. Ludicrously productive, he played on an enormous number of albums, including several each with Freddie Hubbard, Grant Green, Joe Henderson, Milt Jackson, Wayne Shorter, and Stanley Turrentine. But he was best known for his collaboration with Coltrane. They worked together on 28 albums. You can listen to both of them playing here on what is the best live jazz track I've ever heard:
