The Final Hurt: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-38778145?

Sir John was the greatest Caligula ever. Also the greatest Winston Smith. But even his presence could not save Heaven's Gate. Seventy-seven is too young for this great actor to leave us. A pity.

Drive Amour from your memory, Drink, and focus on the early triumphs: Hiroshima Mon Amour, Leon Morin, etc.

No TV show has meant more to me than the noir-informed Perry Mason; now on DVD, I watch episodes from 8 of the 9 seasons (the last season is a total loss) over and over. Hale is not the best female actress or the prettiest, just the one I've watched more than any other. I shall continue to do so.

So much sad news  :'( RIP

John Hurt had one of the greatest voices ever.

Saw Wetton live in 2011: he was the picture of beefy good health. A weak ago a friend showed me a recent picture: his 2-year fight with cancer left him so emaciated, today's news doesn't come as much of a shock. He was still a young man, though. A shame.

Re: John Hurt

I remember seeing him - actually HEARING him - in 10 Rillington Place, with Richard Attenborough as the necrophile. As good as Attenborough was, I liked Hurt even more. What a great voice! And good actor, too.

Sad to hear about Schickel. I will try to write a little more about him sometime I have a chance. RIP
