She was 69. Baur died Sept. 30 in Los Angeles following a lengthy illness, publicist Paul Gendreau announced.

  6. I was never too crazy about LMAD, but Monty Hall himself had a refreshing sense of humor, as he showed in interviews. At the height of his fame in the early-to-mid '70s, when he was one of ABC's few stars, he hosted several TV specials as well starring in two funny Odd Couple episodes.

  8. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2017/09/29/jack-good-man-put-pop-music-television-obituary/ Jack Good, who has died aged 86, was the television producer who introduced grey 1950s Britain to the disturbing new phenomenon of rock and roll, launching the careers of, among others, Cliff Richard, Tommy Steele, Adam Faith, Marty Wilde and Billy Fury, and introducing Buddy Holly and Gene Vincent to British audiences.​ Until a few moments ago I had no idea he'd played Trevor Howard's flunky in Father Goose. I'd always pictured him as a cigar-chewing Sid James type.

  15. http://www.newsweek.com/2017/09/22/netflix-streaming-movies-classics-664512.html Netflix’s selection of classic cinema is abominable — and it seems to shrink more every year or so. As of this month, the streaming platform offers just 43 movies made before 1970, and fewer than 25 from the pre-1950 era (several of which are World War II documentaries). It’s the sort of classics selection you’d expect to find in a decrepit video store in 1993, not on a leading entertainment platform that serves some 100 million global subscribers. Netflix’s DVD subscribers enjoy a much wider selection (four mill

Tracking the actor’s path from humble beginnings in West Irvine, Ky., through a prolific and storied film career, “Crossing Mulholland” paints a striking portrait of this one-of-a-kind Kentuckian. Interviews with family and friends reveal that by the time Stanton left home to pursue acting in California, he had already acquired the raw look and intense presence that w
