Jill Clayburgh has died


Recommended Posts

Amen. I'm shocked and saddened. And old enough that I don't expect that generation to go yet. But this was leukemia. Age has nothing to do with it. Ms. Clayburgh was an actress who could do no wrong. She had a unique quality that elevated a performance beyond mere posturing. The character became so real you could touch her. With due respect to her talented peers, this is the actress I admire from that era. I'M DANCING AS FAST AS I CAN, LUNA, and her tremendous work in AN UMARRIED WOMAN offer a showcase her all too forgettable career overlooks. I miss her already.

Just saw your thread title and am shocked to hear this. I've always liked Jill. One of my favorites of hers is STARTING OVER. There was a t.v. movie from the '70's called HUSTLING, and she was very believable as a streetwalker giving the lowdown on the business to journalist Lee Remick.

No PRETTY WOMAN stuff going on there, lol.

Here's a question. Should TCM have a retrospective of Jill Clayburgh films, (maybe a couple of her movies not a whole day like Tony Curtis) or are her films to recient for TCM? I think they should but I know alot of posters will disagree with me.
