    I saw Mr. Hines walking on 54th Street in NYC in the opposite direction as myself as I was on my way to see Attack of the Clones at the Ziegfeld last May. What a shame.

    Very sad, indeed.

    A favorite of mine was Deal of the Century, where he extracts revenge with the great line, "How 'bout a little touch-up!"

    I just hate it when people from my model year pass on. Loved him in Wolfen.

    Very sad, he was an extraorinarily generous man, extremely supportive of dancers, many of my dancer friends know him and were at the receiving end of his kindness. This is a real sad day for the dance community.

    It was such a shock to hear about this. I'm quite saddened.[​IMG]

    For me, Gregory Hines' most memorable performances will always be Wolfen, White Nights, History Of The World Part I and especially Running Scared....He and Billy Crystal were great together.

    This has been one unbelieveable year with all the great ones going within months of each other. He had the class and dancing skills of Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire and was one of the all time great hoofers.

    I enjoyed seeing him on several episodes of Will and Grace lately and I didn't even know he had been sick.

    I am going to miss him a great deal.

    This one came out of left field. What a shock [​IMG] . I had not heard one peep that he was ill. This must have a one of those fast moving cancers or he did a great job of keeping it out of the press. Many excellent performances over the years. May he rest in peace.

    I loved him goofing around in the music video for "Sweet Freedom" by Michael McDonald, as he danced around with Billy Crystal and lip-synched McDonald's vocals at the end.

    Another great talent leaves us.[​IMG]

    John Kilduff...

    You are the magic...You're right where I want to be.
