Usually i try to find a more recent photo, or something really characteristic or recognizable to post here,
but in all honesty i was kinda shocked to see recent photo's of Demme. I didn't know he had cancer..
so let's remember him in better times, and for all the great stuff he brought us over the course of five decades,
from Caged Heat to The Silence Of The Lambs, and from Something Wild to his documentaries on Neil Young !

A terrific director. Gone but never forgotten. Here's some trivia: Gene Hackman was originally going to direct The Silence of the Lambs but had second thoughts because of the violence, so he backed out. Demme got the job, and the rest is history. He had learned his directing lessons so well at the Roger Corman school. It's sad that we are losing filmmakers of that generation.

A Euro-babe from my childhood. For some of us of a certain age, it's that scene with Woody Allen in Casino Royale where Daliah got us through puberty. RIP.

She was on the cover of an Israeli magazine and they used it in an episode of Mad Men. They were trying to get the Israeli Tourism account. She was very beautiful.

Michael Parks was so good. I was so happy to see him finally get his due late in life. He's wonderful in not only Tarantino's films but also Kevin Smith's Red State and Tusk. Gone but never forgotten.

William Hjortsberg, who wrote the screenplays for Legend and Angel Heart, passed away in April, but it was just publicly announced yesterday. He was mainly a writer of novels, but I think had 4 screenplays made into movies.

Powers Boothe dies at 68 [Frown]

http://variety.com/2017/film/news/powers-boothe-dead-at-68-sin-city-agents-of-shield-1202426655/

So many good roles but loved him especially in 80s classics Southern Comfort, The Emerald Forest and Extreme Prejudice.

Damn it! Not Powers Boothe and Michael Parks they were both awesome,only really familiar with Parks through his work in Chuck Norris's Hitman and Charlie Bronson's Death Wish 5 but God he was great in them!

Powers Boothe I've seen a ton of his work and he was really memorable in his Walter Hill collaborations​ like Atomik mentions Southern Comfort and Extreme Predjudice,then there's Red Dawn,Emerald Forest (Great Movie),Tombstone in which I thought he was terrific but for me still to be outdone by Val Kilmer in what I believe to be his best ever performance!

Both really great actors that will definitely be missed!

Both were wonderful character actors who always gave good performances. Boothe was really great in John Boorman's Emerald Forest (You are right YW, it's a great, underrated movie) and the stuff he did for Walter Hill, as well as playing cult leader Jim Jones on TV and being the villain in Van Damme's Sudden Impact. RIP.

Parks also had a long career. I remember him way back in the 1969-70 TV series Then Came Bronson, a well-regarded show which only lasted one season. He had a long career in all kinds of films--horror, action (with Norris and Bronson), and westerns. Tarantino rejuvenated his career, and Parks was really great in every role. Kevin Smith cast him in two movies, saying that he was the best actor he had ever worked with. Red State isn't bad and Tusk is dreadful, but Parks is fantastic in both, as a crazy evangelical preacher and a guy who loves walruses so much that he wants to create a human walrus. LOL RIP.

Powers Boothe was a shocker. A great and well respected character actor.

I'd love to see that Guyana / Jim Jones movie with Powers Boothe.. I've never seen it, but judging from a couple of
Youtube clips, he really did look like the real Jim Jones.

Like the previous posters already mentioned, i have fond memories of watching Red Dawn, The Emerald Forest,
and Extreme Prejudice on home video as a kid.. but most of all i vividly remember the nail-biting tension of the last
15 minutes or so from Southern Comfort. I will never ever forget that ! What a movie !

Farewell Powers Boothe.. rest in peace !

Audioslave / Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell has dies suddenly aged 52. At present, cause of death is unknown.

As someone who hit that age this week, it's far too young.

I read on Gothamist it was suicide. He hung himself in his hotel room. So so sad. One of the best singers ever.

More sad, sad news.

Sir Roger Moore - loved by many as Bond, Simon Templar, and Brett Sinclair - has passed away at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer.

RIP, 007

Awwwww. I really liked him. He was so underrated. His favorite performance--and mine--was in the obscure thriller The Man Who Haunted Himself, a film that has been very slowly gathering a cult over the years. Moore plays a successful London businessman whose life becomes a disaster when he is shadowed by his much wilder doppelganger. The movie gave Moore a chance to play two very different parts, sometimes very subtly, to great effect. Helen here on the Rewind recommended it to me, and I, must confess, I thought that I'd seen ever great UK horror film/thriller over the years. Yet somehow this little masterpiece had eluded me. Check it out. And RIP, Sir Roger. Gone but never forgotten.

I agree Roger Moore was really great,not the biggest Bond fan but I do really like his outings with Live And Let Die and Octopussy amongst my favourites,also loved his character in the 1978s Wild Geese.

Infact one of the very first movies I ever watched in the theatres starred Sir Roger and that was 1980s WW2 Acton adventure Sea Wolves in which he teamed up with screen greats Gregory Peck and David Niven.

Will be missed!

He was great indeed, YW. He used to joke in interviews that he was always cast as a soldier. Little wonder. With those leading-man looks, his intelligence, and that voice, he's Central Casting and everybody's idea of a British military officer. He was memorable in every part, no matter how large or small. And for a certain generation he will always be James Bond. And for an earlier generation Simon Templar--and Maverick too. But best of all, he was a decent, classy guy.
