Default Karl Malden Follows Billy, Michael, Farrah

Ever since I saw him in Patton he had a special place in my heart. Quite a week, eh?

The guy with the big, butt shaped nose. I'm not sure i would have entered acting with a nose like that. So i'll give it to him for having the courage to put that big fat nose on center stage, or at least, not thinking it could be an impediment to an acting career.

Once upon a time, not everybody in Hollywood had the same nose/lips/boobs. Those were scary days, my friends!

If you follow brit sitcoms, you might also know that Mollie Simigen passed away as well. (Mrs. Slocombe on "Are You Being Served?")

Frankly, I'm beginning to wonder if maybe it isn't "The Rapture"... only in slow motion...

im saddened by all of this news. every lad of my age must have had a poster of farrah on their walls in the 70's (although personally i always fancied jaclyn smith). i was also sad to hear about mollie sugden (UK) and also karl malden. i was not a fan on micheal jackson as such but he was a talented person who was an iconic figure to many. its bad news at the moment.

Actually, films were better then, than they have ever been if you asked me. When you had stars that looked like real people, people off the street like anyone else, it was easy for the average guy/gal to identify with them.
You couldn't make faces like Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson,Margret Hamilton, Lionel Barrymore, John Carradine, Peter Lorre, Charles Laughton, Walter Brennan etc... sell tickets these days, but just think what motion picture history would have been like without all of that talent. The current generation of moviegoers is way too hung up on physical attractiveness, and I do mean WAY too hung up. Amazing what those stars of yesteryear could make you believe without modern cameras, computer generated sets, high-tech special effects and even any colors other than black and white. Oh a few more names, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney, Barry Fitzgerald, Victor McLaglen.

Well, yeah, I was being sarcastic.

There does seem to be quite an influx of celebs dying this year. David Carradine not long ago too.

I know. It just kind of wrankles me that image means so much. I wonder how many young people have starved themselves to death so they can look more like their favorite celebrity. I heard a girl on the radio the other day who said she became an anorexic trying to look like models on fashion magazine covers. She said her friends would ask her what her secrect was so they could look like her too. She eventually dropped from 135 pounds to 88 pounds before she got help. That is very, very sad, and yet those other girls wanted to know how to do it too. I'm not a psychologist so I won't pretend to offer anything other than my opinion, but I think we need some curvier models.
