The music accompanying the memorials is so lovely and wrenching and nostalgic--just perfect.  Hats off to the composer.  And thank you so much, TCM, for these beautiful tributes to the actors and actresses.

Director Paul Mazursky, dies at 84:

http://www.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-me-paul-mazursky-20140701-story.html#page=1

 

"...director who excelled at mining the urban middle class for laughs as well as tears in such movies as "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice," "Blume in Love," "An Unmarried Woman" and "Down and Out in Beverly Hills," has died. He was 84.

A gentle satirist of contemporary society, Mazursky at his best chronicled the social trends of the late 1960s and the '70s, including its touchy-feely self-improvement fads, shifting rules for love and sex, drug experimentation and other excesses."

Christopher Lee...

 

I am wondering if TCM will have a memorial tribute-- or maybe they will make him Star of the Month in October, since there is time to plan for that and so many of his films would work for such a month-long tribute.

TCM Remembers Dickie Moore (1925-2015)

dickiemoore_cu_01_100x148_091120150413.j

Turner Classic Movies Pays Tribute to Dickie Moore on Thursday, September 24 with the following festival of films. This program will replace the previously scheduled movies for that day so please take note. 

The new schedule for Thursday, September 24 will be: 
6:15 AM Three Who Loved (1931)
7:30 AM The Star Witness (1931)
8:45 AM So Big (1932)
10:15 AM Gabriel Over the White House (1933)
11:45 AM The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936)
1:15 PM My Bill (1938)
2:30 PM Sergeant York (1941)
4:45 PM Out of the Past (1947)
6:30 PM Bad Boy (1949)



A cherubic boy with pronounced dimples, Dickie Moore was a prolific child actor in features from the late 1920s through the 1950s in such films as Blonde Venus (1932), Sergeant York (1941) and Heaven Can Wait (1943) among his hundred-plus titles. Moore hit his stride at age seven, when he appeared in over 20 films, includingOliver Twist (1932), for which he played the title role, and numerous Our Gang shorts. Like many juvenile actors, his career slowed as he reached his teenaged years, though there were occasional choice parts, like the courageousKid in Out of the Past (1947). He also co-produced and starred in an Oscar-nominated short film, The Boy and the Eagle (1949), but by the 1950s, he had abandoned acting for public relations, which kept him active for several decades. Moore's long, successful and turmoil-free life stood in stark contrast to the countless stories of child actors whose lives crumbled into disarray after their stars had dimmed.

4:00 PM The Spanish Main (1945)

Born in 1920, she came to Hollywood in 1939 after appearing in Alfred Hitchcock's Jamaica Inn (she was cast by its producer and star, Charles Laughton). Her career would include over 60 screen credits, and she made her final appearance in the television movie The Last Dance in 2000. In 2014, she received an honorary Oscar® during the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science's annual Governors Awards ceremony.
