Yet More Sad Departures

A number of beloved people passed away recently, but I wanted to mention a couple in particular.

The director SYDNEY POLLACK did a huge amount of varied work. THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR was one of my favorites, but I also loved THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON’T THEY and many others . . . He was able to slide in and out of different types of movies with ease . . . and he acted.

He acted REAL good.

In addition, I feel I must mention HARVEY KORMAN, who recently passed away.

I grew up watching him on Carol Burnett, but he also did films.

Watch this on Carol Burnett, he has no lines, basically, he’s doing his best not to laugh but failing miserably and it’s a joy to watch.

And this classic speech.

Rest In Peace, gentlemen.
