She was great in Calamity Jane, that was my fave.

A scene from On Moonlight Bay One of my favourite films. I have fond memories of watching this with my late nana. Doris Day will always live on through her films. RIP

Re: Tributes Thread

Couple of US television icons have passed in the last few days...

Peggy Lipton, one-time model who rose to fame on The Mod Squad in the late '60s.  She married Quincy Jones (Rashida is her daughter) and worked sparingly until her career was revived in the original Twin Peaks.  Just 72.

Tim Conway, best known as a mainstay of The Carol Burnett Show, where his antics during comedy sketches often led to his collaborators breaking character because they were laughing so hard.  85 years old.

RIP

Hilly...you old devil!

Re: Tributes Thread

Conway is a big one.  He was consistently the funniest sketch actor on the Carol Burnett Show, and that's really saying something.  He was funny when playing the sketch as written, but the real magic would come when he would try and make his coworkers break.  Harvey Korman was his usual target, but he could get anyone to break.  Do a youtube search for 'Tim Conway Dentist' or 'Tim Conway Elephant' and you'll see him at his best.

Very sad to read that.  The man was a genius and a hell of a driver.

Time to watch RUSH again, probably one of the most underrated films of the past decade.  Daniel Bruhl is amazing in it as Niki Lauda.

Re: Tributes Thread

Daniel Brühl said about their first contact:

Lauda called him shortly after 6:00 in the morning.
He said “we must meet, but bring only handluggage because, if I don‘t like you, you can immediately piss off“.

Re: Tributes Thread

This year has been very hard on those who made me laugh as a kid in the 1970s: Tim Conway, Arte Johnson, and now Mad magazine.  Then again, this is such a serious, navel-gazing age that I don't think the comedy they represent could survive now.

One of those great 'hey, it's that guy' actors who I always enjoyed.  He was particularly good in DUNE and FIREFOX.

Sad to hear of the death of Rip Torn. I agree that he was great as the guest star in Columbo: Death Hits the Jackpot (1991).

RIP Rip Torn, Such a great talent, I've recently been enjoying him in a few old
episodes of Will and Grace.
RIP Freddie Jones, another great acting talent and a very long career.
