We've also lost yesterday original Wonka director Mel Stuart to cancer at 83. In a long career, Stuart showed a wide range of talent, with several well-received documentaries to his credit as well, but it is the 1971 film (suggested to him by his daughter, who loved the book and appears in a cameo, as does his son) that remains his magnum opus; I would highly recommend his behind the scenes book Pure Imagination, which goes into every detail of production.

Not movie related, however, RIP Neil Armstrong. Even though you have gone, every person in the world, from July 1969 onwards, will know your name.

And also Muppeteer Jerry Nelson, who brought such characters as the Count, Gobo, Floyd Pepper, and Emmett Otter to life over the years.

So sad about Michael Clarke Duncan. I had read about him being hospitalized last month and I was hoping he'd pull through. I really liked him on the Fox tv show The Finder which aired this past season, but was not renewed. He was like the voice of reason to Geoff Stultz's character's kookiness. RIP.

Andy Williams has today passed away after a career spanning 6 decades and more.

Penning the song Moon River, which Chevy Chase sung so meaningfully in Fletch, Williams died at his home after a long battle with bladder cancer. He was 84.

RIP Andy, you will be missed.

No room for humour? This place is getting ultra rigid.

Not on this thread. So leave it, please. There are plenty of other threads where humour is appropriate. Not on an 'In Memoriam' thread.

I really shouldn't need to be explaining why.

Also RIP Andy Williams. One of my Mother's favorite singers ever. I remember watching his Christmas specials every year. What a wonderful voice he had.

Cool Paul. I thought it was funny at the time and believed it would get a few laughs but I guess your right. Accept my apologies [Smile]

I know this happened a few years back but I only just found out about it recently. Brad Delp of Boston committed suicide in 2007.

How could someone who wrote such a beautiful song end up like that.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4QK8RxCAwo

It always bugged the hell out of me that this Australian band completely ripped off the main groove to the song too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4QK8RxCAwo

My brother absolutely hates the below song too.

Joe Lewis,

kickboxing- and karate champion passed away on august 31 after losing his battle against cancer.

Joe was the star of the highly entertaining 1979 action flick Jaguar Lives.
The movie also featured Christopher Lee, Donald Pleasence, Barbara Bach and Woody Strode.

In 2010 Jaguar Lives got the special edition treatment courtesy of Arrow Films UK.
Joe was very enthusiastic talking about the movie and his career in an interview segment
featured on the disc and seemed to be in good shape.

Joe Lewis was 68 years old.

She was still very famous here.. not only as an actress, but also as a writer and painter.
