At some point, I actually stopped keeping track of all the entertainment industry deaths this year because it was getting too depressing. I just watched this clip earlier this afternoon and my brain is still spinning inside my skull. Yes, there are some people not included in this list (including a few who recently passed away within the last week). But it’s been one of those long years where the tendency to get overwhelmed by both expected and sudden demises is only a tiny percentage of the stress one has to deal with. Everyone here will be missed, but not forgotten as long as their work remains and there are people who preserve and share it for future audiences to appreciate.
Wow, yeah. I had actually forgotten we had lost some of those folks.
Where’s the tissue? These always get to me.
You make a good point about preserving this work, and these films.
Thank goodness for all these restorations popping up on Blu-Ray from assorted publishers, as it’s a comfort knowing when some classics need to be seen (and aren’t part of TCM’s library), they can be found. I’m hoping 2018 goes easier, but let’s hope for the best.
