Well, he was 98, and had an absolutely incredible career that lasted almost until his death. What can ya say? I'm not a huge TV watcher so much of his career only dimly impinges on my consciousness, but I always appreciated him as an actor in movies - say Ocean's 11 just a few weeks ago and he was a highlight there.

He's amazing in all three Ocean's films - especially the third (and best) one. No doubt I'll find some time to revisit Soderbergh's amazing trilogy with Run the Director in July. Thanks for the memories, Carl.

91 is not a bad age to go, but what is sad is that it was not of natural causes. :(

There are few celebrity deaths that will make me sadder than this one. Skipping wet-eyed around YouTube clips right now.

Always sad to see an artist go who's still active. Can't say I ever enjoyed much of his work, but I'm still in awe of his career.

RIP.

Just saw that about Morricone passing... :rip:
prolific isn't even the word... he's got 520 credits on IMDB and I can't even begin to pick a favorite. Goodbye, Master... :(

I'm just going to echo the (u)

I don't know if he's my favorite, I find it impossible to choose between him, Hermann, and Goldsmith. But he did compose my all-time favorite score, for Once Upon a Time in America, and I have a feeling I'll be listening to that a lot for the next few hours or days.

I was just listening to The Untouchables score a few days ago. I might not even put it among his top ten works, and it was still magnificent.

If I remember correctly, Morricone dominated our composers poll a few years ago. What a titan.

I probably would agree on The Untouchables, overall, but I remember seeing it for the first time, on the main screen at the Evanston Theater in Evanston, IL, before it got chopped into a bunch of smaller screens, huge, loud, and glorious, and I'm sure it was the first time I heard a Morricone score new, let alone on the big screen, and the moment (right after the 3 minute mark) in this scene where Ness and his guys ride down towards the bridge, with the main title blaring, just overwhelmed me. Still does, though now in part because of knowing of Morricone's history with both westerns and gangster films, which all sort of come together in this moment

I don't know anything about this film, but I ended up listening to Morricone's score on Spotify and it's really good. Curious to see the film now.

Oh he did that? I remember that from my youth. Can't say I knew any of his other music, never been a country guy in particular, but that's a fun one. RIP.

For me remember seeing spaghetti westerns on tv as a child so most iconic is The Good the Bad and the Ugly starring Clint who is still with us.

Ahh that's a bummer. I watched a lot of MB 10-15 years ago and while I didn't care much for the two hosts, I really enjoyed the trio of Kari, Tory, and Grant.

I am dejected to hear cult power-pop hero Emitt Rhodes has died. He had a very sad life. Probably not even famous enough to generate many obituary articles but, damn, he was talented.

British blues-rock guitarist, songwriter and singer, and co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green has died at 73. His best-known song is likely the 1968 "Black Magic Woman", though it's fame is mostly due to Santana's later hit recording.

I was just thinking the same thing. And some real giants. With Olivia, and Doris Day, and Kirk Douglas, and Stanley Donen all going in the past year it's really feeling like the final curtain falling on classic-era Hollywood.
