  • Underground comix artist S. Clay Wilson has passed. I'm not attaching any copies of his work because I'd probably get banned if I did...

    I’m saddened by Mary Wilson’s death. Probably my favorite Supreme, an underrated singer and the the main person who really kept the Supremes together for many years. RIP.

    Stunned by the news of Mary Wilson. I've been a fan of the Supremes since I was a kid. R.I.P. Ms. Wilson.

    Someone who we owe a huge thank you to for pushing unknown talent into popularity.

    Somebody who helped make movies better and people never had any idea. I recall seeing that name for years, one of those unsung people who was legendary for what they did.

    I first became aware of Lynn from Superman The Movie, R. I. P. Reeve as Superman one of the greatest casting in cinema. Lynn kept fighting to convince everyone involved with the film that Reeve was the man to play Superman, the rest is history.

    It's definitely a case when allowing a professional to do what he does best and proves right, especially when you consider the attempts to cast all the big stars of the day such as Sylvester Stallone and all the other leading men.

    Stallone and Brando certainly would have been interesting. I recall Brando vetoed Stallone for the role of Superman as he had and not for the first time final approval.

    Yeah, I remember Stalmaster mainly from his work on Superman The Movie as well. The definitive Superman and Lois Lane were played by Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder, and Stalmaster was the one who got them. May all three of them - as well as Marlon Brando, Tom Mankiewicz and Geoffrey Unsworth (who did the amazing cinematography) - rest in peace. I adore that movie.

    There was a great sense of family from the production of Superman The Movie, what were the Salklands thinking firing Donner. The first film is one of my top 5 movies of all time, amazing film.

    Here's his most famous song, from the soundtrack of the movie Un Indien dans la Ville :

    "...don't let anyone tell you or intimidate you into not saying them..." Just following instructions. But thanks for your input.
    Always happy to help clean up the threads here :)>-

    Respect should be earned. Here's what Rush has done, does that earn respect from you? Your choice, of course. My evaluation is a little different. https://www.salon.com/2021/02/18/lame-limbaugh-obits-media-fawns-over-the-toxic-bigot-who-poisoned-our-politics/
    You are missing a very obvious point. This isn’t the place to express your hatred for a dead man, it’s a thread on a film forum dedicated to posting your respects for someone who has passed away. It’s one of those classic “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” scenarios that they teach in kindergarten. You could have simply not said anything at all regarding Limbaugh but you simply chose not to resist. There are other more general places to discuss such matters. This is not an appropriate one. Hope that makes things more clear.

    You want things to be clear? Here's clear. Rush spread hate through the airwaves for 40 years. He made fun of people who died of AIDS. You get what you give...and Rush gave vitriol to the dead. Even on a forum dedicated to discussing the adventures of fictional characters, occasionally reality must raise its head. Sorry if that makes you uncomfortable.
    Look man, I disagree heavily with many things Limbaugh has said over the years. But in a thread like this where members have expressed genuine grief for both personal and extrapersonal tragedies, filling it with posts expressing joy for a recent death really isn’t a good look.

    By the way, nothing makes me uncomfortable when it comes to my duty of helping to keep the forum clean. Like it or not, your opinion of Rush Limbaugh is completely irrelevant in a thread called “Rest in peace, show your respects to those who have passed away”.

    MMmm-mm, talking about God is a no-no on these boards...

    I think the expression "he is with god now" in a thread like this doesn't have to fire off responses of any kind. So let us please get back "on topic" (which is a strange thing to say in this thread.)

    Actress Martha Stewart has passed away. Sad, I finally saw In A Lonely Place for the first time last month and really loved it.

    Incredible stuff, really floored me. Sometimes I fear films will be way too hyped up for my tastes once I finally get around to them but that was one I heard just enough about to keep me grounded enough when I finally checked it out. Simply amazing.

    Agreed. "In a Lonely Place" is a great film - the kind that stays with you IMO.

    Mildred Atkinson (Martha Stewart's character): Before I started to go to work at Paul's, I used to think that actors made up their own lines.

    Dixon Steele: When they get to be big stars, they usually do.

    Sad to hear of the death of Ronald Pickup, who died on 24 February 2021, aged 80. He played the Bill Tanner-type character Elliott in NSNA as well as appearing in many other films and TV shows.
