It seems like we're losing one of the greats on an almost daily basis lately. Just this year alone, we've lost the following.. Billy Wilder John Frankenheimer Chuck Jones Ward Kimball Milton Berle Ted Williams Dudley Moore (edited) etc..... The sad part is that there is nobody around to fill any of these people's shoes. R.I.P.
Whoa--Sid Caeser is still with us, fellah! :b
Since they come in threes, this grouping has Frankenheimer, Kimball and...who's next? Bob Hope?
Man, that sucks. Ward Kimball was a cool guy, and a great animator. He will be missed.
He was a great animator and he always seemed like a very nice guy. R.I.P. Ward... And may the art of traditional animation live on.
I considered the last bastion of grat disney animation. Of all the disney animators...he was the best because of his sense of humor and love of pushing the envelope of reality. a hero to many jokesers he will be missed but his work will live forever.
I guess Rod Steiger fills out the latest trio...
Yep, Rod would do it. I hate it when I'm right about things like this. I remember listening to him on the Dr Zhivago commentary and wishing that they would have him do more. Very articulate and thoughtful. So much for that idea. It's kind of amazing really that there are still two of the Nine Old Men left, so I guess we should count our blessings. I mean, these were experienced animators already 60 years ago, so the odds of still having them around is pretty low. I just hope that their recollections are busily being preserved for posterity. An incredibly talented group of guys.
