Wow. I've been making so many of these blog posts that I don't know when to quit (save for that little break), but anyway, I'm back with more bad news.
Unfortunately, actor, filmmaker, and comedian Jerry Lewis, whom I mostly recognize as The Nutty Professor, has died earlier today at 91 years old. It's a particularly very sad day for Hollywood, and I'm really, really sad to see him leave our world too. It always saddens me when a big star dies, especially if he/she is enjoyed by millions.
To me, Jerry Lewis changed the face of comedy with his expertise in slapstick humor, which is something that audiences laughed at and enjoyed generation after generation. Needless to say, he was a key person in American entertainment, and sadly, it won't be…Read more >
Bad news, everyone. Yet another beloved celebrity has passed away. This time, it's voice actress June Foray. She died earlier today at age 99, just two months from her centennial. Oh, no. She was so close to turning 100! Anyway, she's best known for the voices of Rocket J. Squirrel from Rocky and Bullwinkle, Jokey Smurf from The Smurfs, Grammi Gummi from Adventures of the Gummi Bears, Granny from Looney Tunes, and Magica De Spell from the 1987 version of DuckTales. Why did the world have to lose a talented, wonderful voice actress who did voicework on various cartoons for multiple generations? It's really unfair, and it breaks my heart as Rocky is my favorite Rocky and Bullwinkle character, and Foray did an excellent job at putting personality a…Read more >
I can't believe I'm making so many R.I.P. blogposts that I lost count! I mean, so many celebrities are dying this year that it might as well be, unfortunately, 2016 all over again. With that out of the way, here's the bad news for Sinatra fans and everyone who is grateful:
Barbara Sinatra, the fourth and final wife of the late singer Frank Sinatra, died today at the age of 90 due to natural causes. As the cofounder of Barbara Sinatra Children's Center, a showgirl, and a model, she was a grateful, skilled, and beautiful woman, and the fact that we just lost such a graceful angel to Frank and everyone else in general just saddens me. I really hope Barbara Sinatra joins the other beauties that died over the course of history, like Marie Antoin…Read more >
Aww man! Two people have died last weekend? Say it isn't so! I don't know what could be worse than that!
Anyway, Martin Landau died on Saturday at the age of 89, and George A. Romero died the following day at age 77. You may know Landau as Rollin Hand in the 1966-1973 TV series Mission: Impossible and as Bela Lugosi in the 1994 film Ed Wood. You may know Romero for directing Night of the Living Dead. These two were awesome people who I would applaud for all the effort they put into the American movie industry. Landau's acting was amazing and he deserved the Oscar for his role as Bela Lugosi. Not to mention that he was such a grateful person. As for Romero, he made Night of the Living Dead and other zombie films he directed appealing to horror fa…Read more >
Bad news, folks. Yesterday, Joan Lee, Stan Lee's wife, died at 93 years old due to a stroke. You may recognize her as the voice of Miss Forbes from Fantastic Four and Madame Web from Spider-Man, and I applaud her for all the talent she has put into her characters. Also, she was such a beautiful model. Why must a notable man of the comic book industry lose a trusty, inspirational wife who influenced the character of Gwen Stacy from the Spider-Man franchise? Why must a marriage that lasted almost 70 years be broken? They were so close to the 70th anniversary milestone, and it's so unfair. Stan Lee didn't deserve a break up. On the other hand, I hope Stan himself will remember her for as long as he shall live. Joan Lee was a marvelous woman w…Read more >
