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).

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.
