    I always loved Leachman in the opening of Kiss Me Deadly.

    I heard about both Cloris Leachman and Cicely Tyson. I have seen both actresses in movies and television shows since I was a girl of six or seven. It feels as if another part of my childhood has passed. By the way, did any of you know that Ms. Tyson had appeared in an episode of the 1965-68 series, "I SPY"?

    R.I.P. Ms. Tyson. R.I.P. Ms. Leachman.

    While watching BBC News today, I learned that guitar player, and former member of the Animals, Hilton Vlentine has passed away, aged 77 :

    It's sure that this song wouldn't have been the success it was if there hasn't been for that guitar intro :

    Yeah, you're right. This is one of the earliest Englsih-language pop/rock songs I remember, and the guitar riff in the beginning will forever remain an icon.
  • That guitar riff is a rite of passage for beginning guitar players. Learn it or ... forever be condemned to playing rhythm guitar. Hilton Valentine -- man,what a name! -- will live on in our memories. Here's another Animals cut with HV defining the song from the very beginning:

    Sad news about Hal Holbrook. I watched him just last year for the first time in Magnum Force and he was brilliant in that. I enjoyed the twist at the end as I didn't see it coming at all!

    Farewell, Sir Tom. You've been an inspiration to millions.

    "People are guilty until proven...l mean...Goddamn it, you know what l mean." I agree--as Lieutenant Briggs he was great. A classic film. All The President's Men is a fave of mine too, and just the other day I was thinking about Wall Street, and his role in that.

    RIP to Hal Holbrook, a great character actor who seemed to appear in every film in the 70's and 80's. Such was his presence.
    A sad loss to a hero in every sense of the word, Captain Sir Tom Moore. An inspiration to all. The world was a better place by having you in it. RIP.

    CAPRICORN ONE, along with BLACK SUNDAY, are probably my 2 favorite films of the 70s, outside of the Bond films. Criminally underrated!!

    And MAGNUM FORCE is every bit as good as DIRTY HARRY. It’s the next 3 films that really dropped the ball.

    RIP Hal Holbrook

    Love 'Black Sunday' great direction by John Frankenheimar. That ending is superb! And Bruce Dern is brilliant in it!

    Absolutely!!! And a suspenseful score by John Williams to boot!

    But the Jerry Goldsmith score for CAPRICORN ONE is even more sublime!!

    I've heard that comparison before. It's undeniable in those pictures. I think I saw one or two of those films and he did a good job from what I recall. No worse than Ron Ely of the Tarzan TV series of the time, at the very least. I didn't realize he was in so many other films during the '70s. I'll be looking for him more closely next time I watch those.
