    Death Takes No Holiday -- The Obituary Thread

    Joseph Campanella also did voiceover work on reruns of Life Is Worth Living. from Wikipedia: Syndication Reruns of Life Is Worth Living and The Fulton Sheen Program continued to circulate as late as the early 1990s on broadcast stations, and was later carried by EWTN, with new introductions by actor Joseph Campanella.

    Stephan55 and everyone: Sorry I've been away too long from the boards. Have been caught up with many things, including preparing to "cut the (cable) cord". Had to put aside issue of TCM on the computer/mobile device for other higher priority technical issues. It turns out, despite prior advice from numerous sources, that I've had serious issues obtaining digital TV signals over the air. I want to get my local stations + PBS (+ those channels that show retro shows). Am on another attempt to get that done. I hate the idea of having to pay (Sling at $25/month) to get stations that broadcast their digital signals for free. It also bothers me that I cannot get TCM on its own, like you can HBO (@ $15/mo). As far as I can tell, the only way to do that is to go through Sling + do TCM as an add-on, which would cost almost $400 per year!!! I don't have the budget for that. Does anyone know if there's an alternative/less expensive way to get TCM without going the cable route? When I originally believed I'd be easily able to get my digital signals (major networks, including PBS) for free with Mohu antennae, I'd decided that unless I got a windfall, I'd do Sling w/TCM for 2 months/year. Sling has no contract requirements and then I could see my favorite TCM broadcasts, "31 Days of Oscar." Again, sorry for my delayed response! Would love any input about this process.

    I particularly liked "Alfie" and "Educating Rita," with Michael Caine. May Mr. Gilbert, who led a long life, RIP.

    D O Stiers did a lot of voiceovers + narration on PBS documentaries. Had a good voice. May he RIP. Too many people seem to be dying "too soon."

    Forget Deborah Walley: seeing the Seeds singing that song is a real blast from the past! ;D

    Always on TV during the 60s as a guest in one series or another! Seems as if she led a long fruitful life. May Ms. Latham RIP.😿

    I remember seeing Tim O'Connor not too long ago on an old "Columbo" episode.

    Just now checking in on my TCM account. So sad to read of Chuck McCann's passing. His children's show appearances were part of my childhood. Also I followed him on Facebook. It seemed that not too long ago, he did a FB live appearance. May Chuck RIP. :(😢

    Am replying to you directly, as you have experience with this. My provider is Frontier (thrust upon TX, FL + CA when Verizon abandoned servicing these states). Despite having all-U.S. support, they are often clueless. Anyhow, after clicking on "Frontier," I signed in with my Frontier online ID. And I get an error message that I'm not allowed to access + should contact Frontier. Of course, when I tried to get help from them (numerous times), they were pretty much clueless. Here's a screenshot of what happens on my laptop. My iPad is another story; but same result: NOT WORKING! Any ideas? Thanks for the link(s) + in advance.

    R.I.P. John Mahoney (1940-2018)

    It seems as though some of my favorite actors have been from the Steppenwolf company. Another example who gone too soon is Glenne Headley.

    R.I.P. John Mahoney (1940-2018)

    Thanks for mentioning "Primal Fear," the 1st movie in which I saw him. He was so believable in any role I saw him play. I especially loved his droll no-nonsense humor. May he rest in peace.

    Nicenice visual accents, Richard Kimble! I'm so glad that Prof. Irwin Corey lived to be a ripe 102.

    Trump - The Rise of a New Hitler?

    Don't have time to read all the posts here + am sick of Trump. Want to add that a friend of mine whose father was a German teenager during Hitler's rise (he got out in time) told me that he likened Trump to Hitler. Pied Piper…
  14. And I'm sure rapidly changing technology factors into all this. One example would be CGI. Note the voluminous credits for CGI on blockbusters. Yes, there were mattes in the traditional days + still are some. I'm not conversant with CGI costs, but am guessing it makes lots of traditional set functions impractical (e.g. another tech example would be diminishing Broadway orchestras).

    I remember seeing Ms. Huffman in the episode of "Columbo" (she was in 2) where Ross Martin played an art critic who uses an art student (Ms. Huffman) as an accomplice in the murder of his uncle. May she Rest in Peace.
