A tremendous shame - I always enjoyed his movies - one of the last of a fast dwindling era. Many memories of the man but I always liked his turn in Cheyenne Autumn.

So, a sad day, not least because dear old Mollie Sugden has gone too, but 97 isn't a bad age.

Phew.. looks like a big update for the DDP tomorrow then!

Interesting to see that:

1) He was born in Gary, Indiana, just like Michael Jackson

2) He died exactly 5 years after his co-star in "On The Waterfront", Marlon Brando...

According to the LA Times article, he was born in Chicago, and only moved to Gary, Indiana, when 5.

Interestingly, I notice that his website is under construction, with an update due 2009. Wont be much to update now!

A sad day indeed, how much press will they get with all the Jackson crap? Not much I fear.

It mentions Fatal Vision which was brilliant: A TV mini-series as good as any of the best movies of that time..

RIP Karl...

I cannot express the joy I feel. This rounds out the week after our dear Farrah and Michael. My prayers are with Betty Ford and Nancy Reagan. May they meet their makers soon as well. :banghead:
