    Max Von Sydow was one of the greatest. He could play the most sober roles or take on the goofiest parts with equal passion. Examples of goofy would be Ming the Merciless in Flash Gordon (a very fun movie) and as the evil brewer in Strange Brew (another fun movie). R.I.P.

    I had forgotten about Max in Strange Brew! For a guy who turned down Dr. No, to take on Bob and Doug McKenzie in a hoser flock was quite a leap! Glad he had a good innings...

    Man, I was beginning to think he'd won that chess game after all.

    My Mother, a fan of all things Scandivian, loved Von Sydow (and Bergman). I guess I'm glad he outlived her so she didn't have to see one of her icons pass from the world before she did.


    R.I.P. Max Von Sydow

    THE END (?)

    I'll go you one better King Osric The Usurper in "Conan the Barbarian".

    "Steal my daughter back for me thieves...
    There comes a time in a king's life when the throne room becomes a prison. A time when jewels cease to sparkle, when gold loses its luster... and the only thing that matters is the smile on the face of his daughter."

    No verbatim but the best my musty memory can do.

    Heard about that this morning while keeping busy at work. RIP. Like many, I'll always remember Sydow as the titular priest in "The Exorcist." It's amazing to think he looked old even back in '73, and he was only 47 at the time! He was always one of those people that seemed to be ageless in my eyes, like Patrick Stewart or Betty White.

    Let's just say Linda Blair wasn't the only actor wearing specialized makeup in that movie. ;)

    Actor Lyle Waggoner, known from Carol Burnett Show and Wonder Woman, has died, aged 84.

    My mum was a huge fan of Carol Burnett, and we watched her show in the 70s. I still remember when guest star Gloria Swanson came on stage with Waggoner, praising Carol. Something along the lines of "you know, I am often given special gifts when I appear, but Carol, you've really outdone yourself"! Carol of course spoofed Sunset Blvd., doing a Norma Desmond spoof, Nora Desmond.
