For all who have passed away, post your thoughts and respect for them here.

Sad news to learn the passing of Michael Clarke Duncan today, a very gifted actor who we have lost at a young age.
RIP

    Completely stunned by this! Loved him in The Green Mile. Always thought he would make a very menacing henchman in a Bond movie!

    RIP Michael Clarke Duncan. You will be missed!
  • RIP Michael. Gone too soon. The Green Mile is a very special film and a huge part of that was down to his performance. He will be remembered.

    Indeed. There is a lot of silent age Batman, so was there silent age Superman?
  • Chris Reeve was a great guy, we all remember him for Superman but he did some other work too that often goes unnoticed. Taken from us at 60 years of age, far too young for anyone to go. Such a shame his career was cut short by the horse riding accident. RIP Mr Reeve

    No, he would be 60. He died at age 52.
  • Yes you're right, I read it wrong. 52 then, but that's at an even earlier age to be taken away sadly. Once again Rest In Peace Mr Reeve

    A fine actor

    there was never a silent age superman nor batman so be silent.
  • What about Keaton or Lloyd ?

    After all, they were 'super' silent movie actors

    there was George Reeves (1914–1959) as Superman for 6 years (52-58) available on dvd!

    and Kirk Alyn (1910–1999) as Superman in 2 serials after the war.

    I believe I have seen silent age Batman clips. They are short, but they exist.

    No they don't. Batman was created in the late 30s a good 10 years after talkies came in. There were some serials made soon after that, similar in style and length to the Flash Gordon serials.

    There were silent films well into the start of talkies, so anything is possible. Maybe there are tons of them never released.

    May each day in your life be a good day goodnight everybody Andy Williams RIP.
  • I'm all for some country and western and one year ago today Johnny Mathis passed on

    Cliff Burton, a musician with one of my favorite metal bands Metallica, left us this day in 1986. He was only 24 years old

    RIP to both. (I think this is the appropriate thread for it, i.e. anniversary deaths as well as present time?)

    Not to sound too American but I'm totally drifting right now :D



    I always liked Andy Williams and was saddened to hear of his death.

    Its a shame he never sang a Bond tune - reminds me a bit of Matt Monro.

    RIP

    I grew up watching Andy Williams' Christmas specials. Moon River and me ... Lovely voice, warm and lovely man by all accounts. Could have done a marvelous Bond tune in his day.
    RIP, our huckleberry friend.
