    It's the anniversary of VE-day today. I want to honour the heroes who fought tyrany and the victims of fascism. We must never forget.

    Norman Lloyd, the character actor (and producer) who famously fell from the Statue of Liberty in Hitchock's SABOTEUR, has died at the great age of 106. We should all live so long!

    Sad to hear of the death of Neil Connery, so soon after the death of his more famous brother Sir Sean too. 

    Also sad to hear of the death of Norman Lloyd aged 106. What a long life well lived! He directed the classic Season 1 episode of Columbo called Lady in Waiting (1971) starring Susan Clark as the killer.

    Ah I missed these announcements, thanks for posting them Silhouette Man - yes, Operation Kid Brother himself and as for Norman Lloyd, I thought he would just keep on going! RIP to both.

    Sverre Kokkin, resistance fighter and saboteur, died on the national day aged 95. I believe he was the last of the very active communist Pelle-group to pass away.

    RIP Charles Grodin, at 86. Starred in many films Inc "Midnight Run", "Beethoven", and "King Kong (76)".

    The magnificent Charles Grodin, RIP, as Barbel has mentioned some great comedic performances but will always be remembered by me as Dr Hill in Rosemary’s Baby.

    Libuse Safrankova (spelling?) who starred as Cinderella in the Hungarian/DDR 1973 movie "Three wishes for Cinderella" has passed away. The movie is show on Norwegian TV every Christmas and it's an important tradition for many. (In fact a Norwegian re-make starring the popstar Astrid Smedplass who is known as Astrid S is being made this year.)

    Rest in peace 🤗
