2019 shows death waits for no one.

Mean Gene Okerlund and Bob "Super Dave Osborne" Einstein.

Grew up watching both as a kid and enjoyed them both.

Regarding Bob Einstein, check him out on this episode of Gilbert Gottfried's podcast, he is an absolute raconteur:

You mean vaxs are not necessarily a tool of the establishment designed to (A) Nanny state us or ( B ) a tool of big pharm just to make money?

Julie Adams, https://en.wikipedia...iki/Julie_Adams'The' Object of the affections of the Creature from the Black Lagoon has passed away:

 

I used to say she must have been incredibly beautiful, if she loved so lovely in a 1950s B Movie.

RIP, one of those actors that could bring class to a movie playing any role, and thanks for the best scene of that movie.

Another great actor, Bruno Ganz, dead at 77. Brace for another wave of "Downfall" Youtube clips.

Im genuinely sorry to hear that. I really liked what he did with that part. He played him as the cold and empty son of a bitch he was.

One could say that his portrayal and the myriad YouTube parodies that followed destroyed any possible further lionization of Hitler, who will forever be a pathetic loser unable to cope with defeat.

Ironically, some accused "Downfall" of making Hitler look too human. I say that's a good thing - this guy wasn't some bodysnatching alien that dropped to Earth and made Germany and others bend to his will through some supernatural powers. He couldn't have committed all he did on his own without willing helpers, mesmerizing and inspiring type that he doubtlessly was.

 

Of course Ganz had a long and distinguished career long before that. He worked with director Wim Wenders multiple times, first in the 1977 neo-noir "The American Friend", and both in the epochal "Wings of Desire" and its sequel "Far Away, So Close". Also in Werner Herzog's 1979 remake of Friedrich Murnau's "Nosferatu" and the great 2008 "The Baader Meinhof Complex". His international work included "The Boys From Brazil", the 2004 remake of "The Manchurian Candidate", the 2009 Liam Neeson vehicle "Unknown Identity" and Ridley Scott's 2013 "The Counselor". Last year he was to appear on stage in Mozart's "The Magic Flute" at the Salzburg Festival, but had to quit rehearsals at urgent medical advice.

 

Speaking of which:

 

Brace for another wave of "Downfall" Youtube clips.

 

Here it comes, and it's actually not bad.

I hadnt made the connection he was in Wings of Desire. Its been ages since I saw it but I loved that film. I notice he was also in The Boys from Brazil.

That's a shame, I greatly enjoyed his Tanks in Hell book about the tanks on Tarawa.
