Freddie Jones dies at age 91

David Lynch's Twitter alerted me to this. He's probably best known for his appearances in Lynch's films (as the ringmaster in The Elephant Man, the weird guy at the bar in Wild at Heart talking to Nicolas Cage about how "pigeons spread diseases"). I didn't realize until reading his obituary that he is the father of actor Toby Jones.

Jim Bouton, probably best known in these parts for his totally random appearance in The Long Goodbye, the 1973 Altman/Gould tribute to hardboiled fiction. He also did some other things.

Denise Nickerson, ‘Willy Wonka’ Actress, Dead at 62

https://www.imdb.com/news/ni62545635?ref_=nm_nwr1

Denise Nickerson, best known for playing the snobby, gum-chomping Violet Beauregarde in the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, has died following a series of medical issues. The actress’ family confirmed her death in a Facebook post, writing, “She’s gone.” Nickerson was 62.

Nickerson suffered a “major medical emergency” at home on Monday, followed by seizures and both pulmonary and respiratory distress. She was admitted to the intensive unit of a Colorado hospital, where doctors also discovered that she had aspirated and developed pneumonia.

She also had a minor role in the Bruce Dern movie Smile. Half-tempted to watch that one again to try to spot her.

:rip:

Someone on Facebook shared this goofy clip of Nickerson, post-Wonka. Could. Not. Be. More. 70s.

I've been gone for a few days and I can't seem to find any post discussing the Kyoto Animation studio arson that took place on July 18. At least 33 died (Wikipedia is stating 34) and several more injured (u)

https://deadline.com/2019/07/kyoto-anim ... 202648253/

The studio made several anime tv series that I loved. They also worked on some movies. A Silent Voice/Koe no katachi (2016) is on the iCheckMovies - Most Favorite official list. The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya/Suzumiya Haruhi no shôshitsu (2010) is also on the favorite list as well plus the Paste's The 100 Best Anime Movies of All Time list.

Yeah heard about this. I didn’t see full list of victims. KyoAni were essential in getting me into anime back in the day. :(

Looking over his filmography, I realize that I've only seen Hauer in 10 movies. That being said, he was usually very memorable in each of those movies. He had a talent for playing the villain who could balance both menace and charm, but he could be just as magnetic in a heroic role as in Soldier of Orange.

I'm just going to leave this clip here:

For me he will always be Floris (more or less the Dutch Ivanhoe).

Toni Morrison, arguably the greatest writer in the world to work during my lifetime...that hit me very hard. She never seemed like a woman approaching her '90s in recent interviews and public appearances, so I never knew she was that old.

I saw that HBO documentary about Jane not so long ago, and was surprised that Peter wasn't involved at all. I don't know if it was because of poor health, estrangement or otherwise.

Only 47 checks for possibly Peter's weirdest film, "Idaho Transfer" (1972). He directs but doesn't act. About experimenting with time travel. Check this one out sometime...it's not very good, but it's an interesting failure and the ending is a memorable shocker.

I think I saw via Amazon Prime...free to subscribers.

My recommend for an obscure Fonda film more people should watch: 92 in the Shade. It's a pretty low key film, not too much happens, it's basically Fonda, Warren Oates and Harry Dean Stanton, hanging out running Florida fishing boats for tourists. Little mid 70s gem that's slipped through cracks

They definitely weren't estranged, he just declined to take part. The cancer could have been related to that as he obviously wanted to keep it private (though we also don't know when he was diagnosed).
