Who will ever forget his contribution to The Avengers? But even more significantly . . . made it to 91. Way to go, Harry!

Most importantly, he made it to FOD!  ;)

Chuck Low, who most famously played Morrie the wig salesman in Goodfellas, has passed away at 89. R.I.P.

There's also a Leone connection: Low had an uncredited role in OUATIA as the father of Debra and Fat Moe. I believe he has just one scene, on the morning of the Pesach holiday, where he hands Debra the key to watch the store as he walks with Moe to the synagogue.

Low had a significant supporting role in The Mission.

According to IMDB, he appeared in 8 films and 4 TV series (in one of those series, Tribeca, he appeared in multiple episodes). http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0522797/

Wow, when he gets whacked in Goodfellas there's not a dry pant leg in the house! A real talent. And to think that originally he was De Niro's landlord! :o

I read Wiazemsky's book about the shooting of Au hasard Balthasar a year ago.

She had a quite interesting face, and I wished she had played in some more films.

Thanks for the tip. I wonder if there's an English translation.

It's very much about Bresson (as a human being). About a complex relation, not about filmmaking (which it also is to a certain extent).

Her book about Godard was not translated here, actually it seems only one more of her novels exists in German language. She met Godard at the set for the first time, when he visited, and behaved strangely. More an irritation than love on first sight.

As I surmised. Hence my interest.

R.I.P Jean Rochefort (1930-2017) I remember him from The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe and Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? and others.

Get out your fuckin’ shinebox! RIP


What’s never explained in that movie is why Pesci had to die for killing the made man but De Niro and Liotta didn’t. Pesci is the one that Vincent was harassing (“Shine you shoes ... look like fuckin’ mirrors!”), which led to the murder, but all three of them were equally involved in the murder.
