    Garry Shandling, just the look on his face got a chuckle out of me.

    And to VLJ, all the best and thanks for many good memories.

    I think he is of the generation of athletes that competed AND smoked. Damn, he was one fine footballer

    Breaking news at the CBC, Patty Duke has died at age 69, sepsis from a ruptured intestine. So young...

    That's a big one. And yes, way too young.

    According to IMDB, Patty Duke's first acting credit was from 1954, and her last won't be released until 2017. any way you look at it, that's a hell of a long career, and she seems to have worked in almost every one of those years. That's what you call a trouper.

    Somebody posted this photo on another forum I frequent - I had never seen it before.

    Patty Duke and Helen Keller. Awesome shot.

    Douglas Wilmer, British character actor, 920-2016, dead at 94. He was a fixture in almost all of the Samuel Bronston big-budget spectaculars of the 60s, incuding "El Cid" and "Fall of the Roman Empire"and many others. A versatile presence on stage, screen and telly with a distinctive face and voice.
