RIP Olivia de Havilland

How many Golden Age stars are left, I wonder?

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Quote

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.

Off the top of my head, Norman Lloyd, Jane Withers, June Lockhart  Nehemiah Persoff, Rhonda Flemming, Angela Lansbury, and Eva Marie Saint all started in the Golden Age / pre-1960. I'm sure there are more, but not many, if any, as big as de Havilland

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

Apparently he had been battling colon cancer for 4 years. Mad lad still did Black Panther. I can't even think how hard it was to get into super hero shape while battling cancer.

For that fantasy RIP... Terry Goodkind passed away yesterday.

"To exist in this vast universe for a speck of time is the great gift of life. It is our only life. The universe will go on, indifferent to our brief existence, but while we are here, we touch not just part of that vastness, but also the lives around us. Life is the gift each of us has been given. Each life is our own and no one else’s. It is precious beyond all counting. It is the greatest value we can have. Cherish it for what it truly is . . . Your life is yours alone. Rise up and live it."
