    R.I.P. Aretha Franklin (1942-2018)

    Her version of I Say A Little Prayer is one of my favorites. On the Oscar show for the 1968 releases, she belted out the title song from "Funny Girl". When she was finished, Frank Sinatra said "She really tore it up, didn't she?"

    Your top ten character actresses and actors

    I agree. The second Mr Wilson (Gale Gordon) was good, playing it as an old grump. Whereas Kearns was more of a neurotic fussbudget, which made for bigger laughs.

    Your top ten character actresses and actors

    I do. He seemed to be best at creepy, sleazy characters. I remember him as neighborhood loan shark in Elvis Presley's last film "Change Of Habit". One of the Alfred Hitchcock TV shows I recall was one called "Crack Pot" where he played this seemingly insane weirdo but it has the usual twist ending.
