At the height of his popularity, Sinatra was still short.

Even at the height of his popularity, Sinatra was a nobody.

For a moment there, I thought it was Frank Sinatra's first wife Nancy, who should be turning 100 in a couple of months.


I thought the same thing automatically.

BTW-- She's not just his first wife; she's the mother of his three children and the helpmate who supported him and put up with him when he was a nobody.

Per The Chicago Tribune ​(http://www.chicagotr...0331-story.html​), she turned 100 on March 25, 2017.

Before marrying Sinatra, Barbara was the wife of Zeppo Marx, by whom she had a son.

I lost my mother 

 

 

I am very sorry for your loss. I understand quite well the turmoil of this time for you. I hope you can take heart in the fact that she is now at rest beyond pain and suffering. 

 

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I lost my mother to dementia on Tuesday just a month after she turned 94.  Her mental state had been going downhill since the month began and honestly I was praying for this rather than have her keep growing more frightened and disoriented.  I saw her yesterday and she looked so at peace.  It made me think of all the aged stars we've lost and mourned lately because we like their work; perhaps their loved ones feel the same about them as I do Mom.  May they all truly RIP.

It seems like all the obits I've seen say "John Heard of HOME ALONE" but old me remembers his very first flick BETWEEN THE LINES (1977) about an alternative newspaper.  A true '70's flick co-starring some up-and-comers like Jeff Goldblum and Lindsay Crouse.

CAT PEOPLE was probably my earliest association with Heard.  I didn't see any of his earlier work until after that.

 

Always liked the guy.  Even when he was playing not so likeable guys.  He'll be missed.

 

RIP

Joan Micklin Silver's 1979 relationship tale "Chilly Scenes of Winter" -- originally released as "Head Over Heels" -- is a must-see Heard film. It also starred Mary Beth Hurt, Peter Riegert, Kenneth McMillan, Mark Metcalf and Gloria Grahame.

Two roles that I associate with John Heard were his terrific lead in 1981's Cutter's Way, and the cult horror movie C.H.U.D. (1984).

Actor John Heard, probably best known for his role as the dad in the 1990 cult classic HOME ALONE, has died. He was 72.

 

A constant presence on both the big and small screens over the last four decades, his many other film roles include playing Natassja Kinski's lover in the 1983 remake of CAT PEOPLE, Geraldine Page's son in THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL (1985), a supporting role in Robert Redford's second directorial effort THE MILAGRO BEANFIELD WAR (1988) and roles in two films directed by Penny Marshall -- as Elizabeth Perkins' boyfriend in BIG (1988) and as a doctor opposite Robin Williams and Robert De Niro in AWAKENINGS (1990). In 1999, Heard was nominated for an Emmy Award for his role on the first season of THE SOPRANOS

 

Heard was married -- for six days -- to the actress Margot Kidder, and had a son with actress Melissa Leo.

Red West (March 8, 1936- July 18, 2017) - Actor, stuntman, songwriter, and close friend of Elvis Presley, who he attended high school with. After a stint in the Marines, West reconnected with Presley, co-writing some of his songs and appearing in some of his films, like Live a Little, Love a Little, as well as other movies like Walking Tall (1973). After Presley's death, West continued acting, appearing in TV such as Baa Baa Black Sheep, and films such as Road House (1989), The Rainmaker (1997) and Glory Road (2006). He was very good as a grumpy, suicidal old man in 2009's Goodbye Solo

Martin Landau, Legendary ‘Ed Wood’ and ‘North by Northwest’ Actor, Dies at 89-

 

"Martin Landau, a screen giant who brought his one-of-a-kind talents to Hollywood for more than 60 years, has died at 89. TMZ first reported the news, stating that the actor died yesterday of “unexpected complications” after briefly being hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center.

 

Landau won a richly deserved Academy Award for his role as Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton’s “Ed Wood,” having previously been nominated for both “Crimes and Misdemeanors” and “Tucker: The Man and His Dream”; he also had three Golden Globes, six Emmy nominations, a BAFTA nod and several lifetime achievement awards to his name.......
