The Fink

The Fink?  Not a movie title he was in - a character nickname?

At any rate, RIP.  Loved him in the 80's.  Silverado especially but also Best Seller and F/X (those weren't the best movies, but still entertaining).

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.


Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Horror film historian Ted Newsom.  Maybe not a name you recognize, but he did a number of documentaries on horror films (like 100 Years of Horror, Flesh and Blood: The Hammer Heritage of Horror, Ed Wood: Look Back in Angora) he also wrote and directed the send-up of 50s sci-fi The Naked Monster (aka Attack of the B-Movie Monster).  He assisted with a number of other film documentaries providing facts or footage (not always horror related, as he had a lot of information on Hollywood films), contributed to the release of a number of sountracks by late composer Ronald Stein (he did the liner notes for The Haunted Palace/Premature Burial disc amid others) and recorded commentaries on a number of film releases over the years (like The Devil Bat, Day the Earth Caught Fire and Quatermass II).  As an actor he appeared in a number of bit roles usually for low budget exploitation type films.

Probably his biggest flirtation with mainstream success is scriptwork he did for the 80s iteration of Spider-Man, when Golan-Globus had the rights at the time (which eventually went to MGM when they bought Cannon films and later were traded to Sony) and was a part of the long and tortuous route for that character to get to the screen in 2002.
