One of the horrible things is, how many other mass killings that have
taken place since and which sadly will continue

Sad news about David Hedison. He was great as Felix Leiter in both his appearances in LALD and LTK. At least he had a good innings, living to 92.

RIP  to David Hedison, I am glad that before he passed away he was able to write the forward to the reissued version Roger Moore's 007 Diaries.

David Hedison lived a long time and he always managed to look great, no matter his age.  And I will always associate him not with Felix Leiter, but with those immortal lines "Help me. . .help me!"  RIP.

Re: Tributes Thread

Still bummed out about the death of English YouTuber Emily Hart, who was killed last week while riding an electric scooter. I watched her funny '10 Reasons Why' clips some years ago, saw a few of them, they stayed with me. It does feel more personal when you see someone on YouTube rather than just on TV or something.

Re: Tributes Thread

Very sad to hear about Rutger Hauer's passing, I have been an admirer of his work for years from Blade Runner to Escape From Sobibor and beyond. @Hardyboy I agree, he would have made a great Bond villain especially in the 1980's when his star was on the rise in the Western world.

It seems he was offered the role of a Bond villain in the 1980s.

From @jamesbondlive on Twitter:

RIP Rutger Hauer. An iconic actor who will forever be remembered for his role as Roy Batty in Blade Runner. In 1984, he was offered the part of Max Zorin in A VIEW TO A KILL but turned it down. He wanted to play 007 instead.

RIP Rutger, a lovely man I’m so privileged to have met 3 years ago. Ironically he passed in the year that Blade Runner was set, as did his greatest role Roy Batty...

I just saw that Peter Fonda has died at the age of 79.  He was never the actor his father (Henry) was and he was never as acclaimed as his sister (Jane), but he gave us Easy Rider--and that's quite the accomplishment right there.

Ragnar Ulstein (19th of April 1920-3rd of December 2020)

Ragnar Ulstein (99) was a Special Operations Executive SOE) agent and later a historian. He escaped to Britain from occupied Norway in 1941. Later he took part in a commando raid in the Lofoten islands, kayaked alongside German ships and attached limpet mines to them and trained guerillas in Sogn and Fjordane county. He was also trained as a diver and piloted an electric underwater kayak. If that sounds Bondian to you it may be because Ian fleming planned the operation. You can read more here: https://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/51043/th … ad/page/3/

After the war Ragnar Ulstein became a historian focusing on the war and especially restance work and inteligence. He probably spoke to more members of the resistance than any other person. He also did a lot for WWII veterans.
I met Ulstein once, when I was a student. He talked to us about the illegal refugee traffic across the North sea.

Since he's just made his last ourney I'd like to tell you the story of when he came home after the war. He was working as a Commander and instructor for guerillas in the mountains further south when the peace came. He had no contact at all with his parents in the four previous years, so he hurried home. His parents him on the stairs of the house. Ragnar shook their hands, but he was too owerwhelmed by feelings to talk. He just walked into the living room and started playing the house organ, the only ways he could get release for his emotions. Later in the day when he had calmed down an elderly couple was standing on the steps of the house. When Ragnar escaped to Britain he was traveling on a stolen fishing boat with a small group of people. As they were about to leave a 17 year old boy jumped onboard and refused to leave. Later in Britain the boy became a fighter pilot. Sadly he was killed in the last year of the war. The old couple were his parents. A few days earlier they got a letter about their son's death,and now they were hoping desperately Ragnar could tell them it was all a joke. Ragnar had to tell  tehm the news was true. The couple turned back without a word. Ragnar Ulstein saw them walk all the way to their house, the longest walk in their life.
