Another great actor has left us.
Oh no! The Electric Grandmother! When I was younger, the ending used to have me SO chocked up.
Even though she won the Oscar for a serious role (in Reds), it was her comic performances I'll always remember. She could be extravagantly silly and yet somehow real. Personal favorites includes Bye Bye, Birdie ("You heard him! You're a witness!!"), The Money Pit and Johnny Dangerously.
My favorite: I always loved the TV-movie "The Gathering" (and "The Gathering Part II" to a lesser degree), and I still hold out hope for an eventual DVD release...a set with both would be very nice.
Most recently watched: "Lonelyhearts" on TCM just a couple weeks ago...
We're losing a lot of great artists lately.
She was terrific in Johnny Dangerously.
"Watch out for that left, Ma!"
"I love him, but someday I'm gonna knock him on his ass..."
So does this make Wilford Brimley the last one (of the seniors) left from Cocoon?
All these people passing at or just past 80 is making me nervous. My dad is going to be 78 next month.
It does, but Wilford Brimley was much younger than the other seniors in the cast. Hume Cronyn, Don Ameche and Jack Gilford were more than old enough to be Brimley's father.
