I knew in the back of my mind that you valued her films greatly, jd. I have been reading several articles over these last couple of days that give some insight into her socially-concerned, politically-attuned perspectives. Her activism against the pollution of the steel industry in Taranto in recent years was highlighted. Quite obviously a committed and remarkable lady, even into her later years.

Of her directed works, I've only seen 'Stendalì: Suonano ancora' (1960). Certainly one of my viewing highlights of last year! I look forward to seeing more of her work, especially 'Tommaso'.

Dustin Diamond must have lived pretty close to me. Because I stumbled upon him TWICE in past years. Once was in a large indoor mall that's a major county shopping destination, so he could have come from miles away. But the other time, I saw him in a GROCERY STORE. Just pushing a cart (glumly) like anyone else. And I was maybe 2.5 miles from home.

He actually died on the 23rd of January but for whatever reason it wasn't reported until today. With him and Leachman and Tyson that's three giants in the span of a week in American popular culture, all names I grew up with and have known for over 40 years. Makes me feel old myself...

I suppose Christopher Plummer is fated to always being remembered most for The Sound of Music, but it was only one moment in a very long and varied career. I especially enjoyed him as the icy villain in The Silent Partner and the quick-witted patriarch in Knives Out.

Oddly enough, this random movie included the final film appearances by both Plummer and Peter Fonda.

I had forgotten Plummer was even in Sound of Music until the notices of his death, but then it is not a film that means anything or has any importance to me - while obviously a classic to others.

Oddly enough the first films that came to me was the last film I saw him in, just a bit over a month ago, The Man Who Invented Christmas, which is not a particularly strong film, though good enough and with Plummer shining as Dickens' vision of Scrooge. He was really delivering to the end.

My mind then went to my favourite film in which he stars, namely The Man Who Would Be King, though of course he was only supporting, and my mind started jumping to see where he was the lead and where he really stood out. I thought about Beginners, where he has a great performance, and steals the show completely, but once again as supporting.

I have seen him in 25 films, and in only two of them he was credited first. One being Murder by Decree - which was the first major role that came to mind, and the other being the titular character in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus - which I had completely forgotten in the moment, and while he is not really the lead character, he was spectacular.

Does anyone have any recommendations for films in which Plummer is the lead?

An excellent point. Every movie I've liked him in, he played a supporting role. Some people are just better in those roles. I remember reading some critic who wrote that Brad Pitt was a mediocre leading man but a superlative supporting actor. But that's a discussion for a different thread.
