I'll keep my eyes open, but I haven't seen one since, I think, Omar Sharif.

 

Really? I guess I haven't been paying enough attention to this. I'm sure Gene will be included in the end of the year montage TCM does-- the one that usually pays tribute to all those who have passed during the previous twelve months.

When did they stop doing those? I would give it another 24 hours, for TCM to have enough time to make one for Wilder, before jumping to conclusions.

You know those brief little clipreels of one minute or less when someone dies? I went looking for one for Gene Wilder tonight and someone told me TCM had stopped making them. Is this true?
