RIP Jerry Lewis
August 20th, 2017 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Jerry Lewis passed away today at the age of 91 in Las Vegas according to Las Vegas Review Journal.

He will forever be known as the King of Comedy because no one brought humor to the big screen like him in movies like The Nutty Professor, The Bellboy, Cinderfella and so many more. While he made us laugh until we cried, he also made us cry when he hosted the annual Jerry Lewis Telethon for the MDA for 44 years. Now without him, Labor Day will never be the same.

For 10 years, his partner was Dean Martin. He was the serious guy to Lewis’ clown. They were pair made in cinematic heaven and now, thanks to them reuniting in 1976 after a nasty breakup, they are in entertaining everyone up there with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. While not a member of the Rat Pack, they still all go hand in hand together.

Today, keep his comedic genius alive by rewatching or discovering one of his many hilarious movies. There has never been a comedian like him and there will never be one like him again.

On a personal note, I am so glad that I got to see him host one of his telethons live when I just moved to Los Angeles. When I was a kid, I would look forward to Labor Day just to watch it all night long. I never made it through a whole one, but I enjoyed every minute I got to see. There was something so magical about watching all these legends come on and share the screen with him on live television. He was a true master and we are better for the 91 years he had on this Earth.


RIP Joe Bologna

Joe Bolonga passed away yesterday at the age of 82 from a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer according to Variety.

The actor is best known for his big screen roles in My Favorite Year, Woman of the Year, Blame It on Rio, The Woman in Red, Transylvania 6-5000, It Had to Be You and Ice Age: The Meltdown. I remember him for his small screen roles in Rags to Riches and the Married…with Children spinoff Top of the Heap.

Although his biggest role was husband to Renee Taylor. The two worked together on several projects since 1971 when they co-starred and wrote Love and Other Strangers together. Their 52-year marriage was one that was so special, it is hard to imagine one without the other.

Today honor their love and his life by watching one of their many projects together! It our way of letting her know, she has our love through this difficult time by celebrating their love!

RIP Adam West
June 10th, 2017 under Batman, Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Adam West passed away yesterday at the age of 88 from short battle with Leukemia according to his family on Twitter.

Back in 1966, West landed the role of his lifetime and for the next 50 years he was known as Batman. He continued to reprise that role up until now when he will once again voice the Caped Crusader in Batman vs. Two-Face. This isn’t the only role we will hear his voice in, he was also the Mayor of Quahog on Family for the last 17 years.

When it comes to the Dark Knight, he will always be the best one! Today, honor him by watching him in his greatest role that has brought generations of fans years of joy.


RIP Moore, Sir Roger Moore
May 23rd, 2017 under James Bond, Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Sir Roger Moore passed away today in Switzerland at the age of 89 after a brief battle with cancer according to his children.

The actor had acted for decades before he landed the role of a lifetime as Bond, James Bond in 1972. He was first seen as the legendary spy in 1983’s Live and Let Die and played him again six more times until 1985 in A View to a Kill. To me, he will always be the quintessential 007 thanks to Moonraker. I can still remember watching that film with my dad as a child. That is when I was introduced to the Spy Who Loved Me, and I loved him. Like so many other people.

Today, let’s keep The Man with the Golden Gun alive by watching him being suave and sexy in one of many roles.
