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.

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.

That's all, folks!

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.
