I haven't seen that one, Allison. I shall have to look into more of his creations!

Sad to hear about Mrinal Sen as well. He had been unwell and frail for some time. 95 is a fine innings!

Bob Einstein AKA Super Dave Osborne, a comedian, actor and writer, and older brother of Albert Einstein AKA Albert Brooks, has died at 76. The Super Dave character - a naive or stupid stuntman who seems to always manage to screw up his stunts to the point of serious injury - is probably his major legacy, along with his work on Curb Your Enthusiasm, but I'll always remember him best as the pushy and condescending sporting goods salesman who fleeces Albert Brooks in Modern Romance.

Damn! I definitely knew him (and his always-hoarse voice) best as Marty Funkhouser on Curb Your Enthusiasm, his back-and-forths with Larry David on that were great.


And until now I actually had NO idea that he was Albert Brooks' brother! :o
I thrive best hermit-style.

I also loved him as the surrogate on Arrested Development. But Curb is where I really got to know him.

Mary Oliver, poet, 83.

I've been sitting here trying to think of something but I can't find the right thing to say. I've learned a lot from Mary Oliver but obviously not enough. She will be missed.
