Dick Miller, 90, American actor with a career that spanned over 60 years. A regular for both Roger Corman and Corman disciple Joe Dante, I'm sure he's best known for his memorable supporting turn in Dante's Gremlins or his pawnshop owner bit part in The Terminator, but his best performance and role I think was a rare lead in Corman's original Bucket of Blood.

Thanks, Nathan and Max.
We said farewell to his body yesterday (the funeral will be family only). Very strange to see someone who always had a big grin on his face, who seemed always happily surprised about everything life had to offer and seemed always optimistic, even in times when he was depressed, suddenly lifeless. It wasn't him anymore.

The good part was meeting some thirty friends again, many for the first time in years. I guess even some stupid death has its benefits. Life is strange.

When my girlfriend got Amazon Prime several months back and I hadn't started searching deep into the Amazon catalog yet, "That Guy Dick Miller" was among the first films I watched.

He was far and away the best thing about Sally Potter's latest, The Party. One of those guys it was always a joy to see - maybe in part because I always remembered his joy, his fullness in life as Damiel. RIP.

Whew, Finney and Ganz within such a short time.

I don't think "The Party" even played in my area...I was FORCED to see it online. Not marvelous, but well worth seeing. I'm surprised it has 518 checks -- I would have guessed less.

I saw The Party whilst on a first date. We both spent most of the running time cringing, in a bad way. In fact, the last three movies I've seen starring Ganz made be cringe hard for various reasons (The Party, Amnesia & The House That Jack Built)

Fantastic actor though. Nosferatu, The American Friend, In the White City (l)
