MALVIN WALD
Died Mar. 6, 2008

Malvin Wald, who conceived and was a co-writer of the gritty 1948 crime film “The Naked City,” a prototype for modern police dramas, including the popular television show of the same name, died on Thursday in Sherman Oaks, Calif. He was 90 and lived in Sherman Oaks.
Skip to next paragraph
Malvin Wald
His death was confirmed by his son, Alan.
Ending with the famous lines “There are eight million stories in the Naked City. This has been one of them,” “The Naked City,” which was written with Albert Maltz, was inspired by Mr. Wald’s adolescent years on the streets of Brooklyn.
“No one had done a film where the real hero was a hard-working police detective, like the ones I knew in Brooklyn,” Mr. Wald told The Hollywood Reporter last year. “We knew we were making a new genre that became the police procedural.”
Besides its television spin-off, which ran from 1958 to 1963, many other films and TV shows drew inspiration and tone from “The Naked City,” including “Dragnet,” “Hill Street Blues” and “CSI.”
Mr. Wald was nominated for the Academy Award for screenwriting for “The Naked City,” which won two other Oscars, for its cinematography and editing.
It was one of more than 150 scripts by Mr. Wald. His other film credits, for writing or story, include “Al Capone,” (1959); “Battle Taxi” (1955), about the first use of helicopters in war; and “Ten Gentlemen From West Point” (1942), about the early years of the military academy. He wrote television scripts for, among other shows, “Perry Mason,” “Peter Gunn,” “Have Gun — Will Travel,” “My Friend Flicka,” “Daktari” and “Playhouse 90.”

SEMKA SOKOLOVIC BERTOK
Died Mar. 4, 2008

(Sarajevo, 22. decembra 1935. - Zagreb, 4. mart 2008., )
Malo je poznato da Semkina porodica vuče porijeklo od legendarnog Mehmed paše Sokolovića te da joj je i djed bio paša. Rođena Sarajka, koja se u mladosti bavila mačevanjem, u Zagrebu je upisala dramsku akademiju.
Impresionirala je dr. Branka Gavellu, postala njegov asistent i zaposlila se u Zagrebačkom dramskom kazalištu (poslije preimenovano po velikom redatelju). Bila je majstor velikih scena. Svojim ne rijetko otresitim, strogim nastupom u nekoliko minuta ili sekundi bi se usjekla gledatelju u pamćenje, čak jače nego neki glavni glumci. U komediji Rajka Grlića “U raljama života” igrala je tetku iz Bosanske Krupe tako sočno da su i publika i kritičari zažalili što oko nje nije usredotočen cijeli film.
Prve važne uloge zahvaljuje Fadilu Hadžiću, koji je u njoj prepoznao vrsnu karakternu glumicu. Ostvarila je fine vinjete u “Službenom položaju” (1964.), “Drugoj strani medalje” (1965.), “Protestu” (1967.) i “Divljim anđelima” (1969.), međutim, da smo tada imali malo ozbiljniju kinematografiju, Semka bi stasala u našu Thelmu Ritter. Njezino geslo kao da je bilo “nema gluposti, nema glumatanja”, zbog čega su je i prigrlili redatelji nove generacije, ponajprije Goran Marković, koji joj je u filmu “Majstori, majstori” povjerio prvu veliku filmsku ulogu.

Mr. Heinz appeared as himself in numerous episodes of " ESPN SportsCentury ." He also appeared in the Ken Burn's documentary " Jack Johnson: Unforgiven Blackness ."

 

MIKE SMITH
Died Feb. 28, 2008

Mike Smith, the lead singer of the British rock band " The Dave Clark 5 " died of pneumonia at age 64. Mr. Smith was hospitalized for most of the time following a 2003 fall which paralyzed him from the waist down. Mr. Smith was recently allowed to return home where he passed away. " The Dave Clark 5 " was part of the British Invasion which changed the face of Rock and Roll during the early 1960s. I was lucky enough to have older brothers and sisters in the early 1960s. I remember sneaking into their rooms while they were off to school and playing their 45rpm records. Two bands other than the Beatles caught my ear: " The Animals " and " The Dave Clark 5 ." I loved the music of " The Dave Clark 5 " and spent lots of time trying to impress the neighborhood girls by singing their hits. Ah, the life of a pre-school Romeo. " The Dave Clark 5 " scored hit after hit during the early and mid-1960s. Such songs as " Glad All Over ," " Bits and Pieces ," " Because ," " Do You Love Me ," " Catch Us If You Can ," " I Like It Like That " and made " The Dave Clark 5 " the biggest threat to the Beatles dominance of the billboard charts. Mike Smith played keyboards and was the lead singer. The band appeared a record 15-times on " The Ed Sullivan Show ." The band starred in the 1965 film " Catch Us If You Can ." John Boorman made his feature film directorial debut with the " Hard Day's Night " knock-off. A year earlier " The Dave Clark 5 " played a song during a musical cameo in the film " Get Yourself a College Girl ." Mr. Smith died on the eve of the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This is an honor that should have been granted years ago, even before the 2006 death of the band's saxophone player Denis Payton. Mr. Smith is at the top right of the picture.

JEFF HEALEY
Died Mar. 2, 2008

Blind guitar legend Jeff Healey died of cancer at age 41. Mr. Healey lost his sight to cancer when he was an infant. He began playing guitar at age 3 and became one of the world's foremost guitar virtuosos. Jeff Healey played rock, blues, jazz and classical guitar styles. He was about to release his first new blues/rock album in nearly a decade. For those who don't remember the late 1980s or early 1990s, YouTube is full of classic clips of Jeff Healey destroying the competition. I highly recommend checking out the video of Mr. Healey and the late Stevie Ray Vaught tearing up the song " Look at Little Sister ." One of my guilty pleasures is the Patrick Swayze B-movie " Road House ." Jeff Healey provided some great music and had respectable acting chops as Cody, the musician who rocked the bar. A fun, trashy movie, made all the better for Jeff Healey's presence. Jeff Healey performed on numerous TV shows worldwide. There was a corny old song called " Rock and Roll Heaven " in which the singer lamented about those who have passed away. I'm sure if anyone were to rerecord that song today it would contain a lyric about Jeff Healey. Prayers of comfort for his family and friends, especially his two young children.

EMILIO CARBALLIDO
Died Feb. 11, 2008

El dramaturgo mexicano Emilio Carballido falleció la noche del lunes a los 83 años en la ciudad mexicana de Xalapa, en el estado de Veracruz, donde nació, confirmaron colaboradores suyos.

El autor de novelas como Las visitaciones del diablo (1965) falleció de un paro respiratorio.

Carballido nació en Córdoba, en el estado oriental de Veracruz, el 22 de mayo 1925 y estudió en la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras en la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), en la capital.

La amplia obra literaria del escritor incluye dos tomos de cuentos, nueve novelas, más de cien obras de teatro y cincuenta guiones para cine.

También fue fundador y director de la revista Tramoya , editada por la Universidad Veracruzana, y director de la Escuela de Arte Teatral del Instituto de Bellas Artes.

Críticos mexicanos como Christopher Domínguez lo consideraban parte de una estirpe veracruzana muy importante a la que también pertenecen Sergio Pitol, Jorge López Páez, Sergio Galindo y Juan Vicente Melo.

Carballido recibió el Premio Nacional de Lingüística y Literatura y fue Artista Emérito del Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte del Fondo de Cultura y Artes (Fonca) de México. Fue académico de la lengua de México desde 1976.

Entre sus obras que se representaron en más de quince países destacan El águila descalza y Macario, Felicidad y Díaz de Otoño .

En marzo del año pasado, Carballido y Héctor Herrera se convirtieron en una de las primeras parejas de la capital mexicana en registrar oficialmente su unión aprovechando la promulgación de la denominada Ley de Sociedades de Convivencia.

La normativa no es equiparable a un matrimonio, ni cambia el estatus civil del contrayente, pero sirvió para formalizar la relación entre Carballido y Herrera, 44 años menor.

Las exequias de Carballido se celebraron desde ayer en la misma Xalapa, la capital de Veracruz.

Died Feb. 13, 2008

Date of Birth 1943, Cairo, Egypt
Date of Death 13 February 2008, Cairo, Egypt
Lebanese singer Elissa has shocked officials at the production company ‘Rotana’ after she requested that the company refrains from releasing her new album during the summer season. Elissa justified her request by stating that there is an influx of new albums during the summer season negatively reflecting any hoped for success.
The singer suggested that her album’s release be postponed until the end of the year, at a time when not too many albums are released. Elissa has decided to only release a new duet she sang with Algerian singer Cheb Mami during the summer, and will be filming a unique music video for it.
On a different note, L’Azurde Company for Jewellery and World Gold Council in Dubai announced Elissa as the Ambassador of Gold in the Middle East for the years 2007 and 2008. The announcement was made as part of a new campaign the Council is holding to promote Gold. A press conference was held for the occasion at the Burj Al-Arab Hotel in Dubai.
According to the London based Elaph, along with the press, Mr. Ayman Al-Haffar, Executive General Manager of L’Azurde Company for Jewellery, and Mr. Moaz Barakat, Managing Director of World Gold Council in the Middle East, Turkey and Pakistan attended the conference.
L’Azurde Company for Jewellery and World Gold Council have launched the largest advertising campaign ever organized in the region to promote the industry with a budget totaling 20 million US dollars.
The campaign aims at offering the best jewelry in terms of designs, and quality. Mr. Barakat said that the Elissa has been chosen due to the fact that she is considered as a prominent media face and is charismatic and enchanting in all her appearances whether on TV or concert stages around the world. He added that she reflects the desires and aspirations of women -whether married or single.
Elissa expressed her honor and gratification at being chosen and promised that she will do all she can to ensure that the campaign is a major success.
At the end of the press conference, the attendants viewed the latest video clip by Elissa for the song “Kirmalak” (For You), which the singer filmed especially for the campaign.

HENRI SALVADOR
Died Feb. 13, 2008

Henri Gabriel Salvador (Cayenne, 18 de julio de 1917 - París, 13 de febrero de 2008) fue un cantante y guitarrista francés de música popular y jazz.
Músico de gran recorrido artístico (estuvo en activo desde los años treinta hasta el año de su muerte), fue un personaje relevante dentro de la música francesa y mundial; algunas de sus canciones forman parte de la cultura popular francesa (entre ellas, "Syracuse", "Une chanson douce", etc.) y se le considera el primer cantante francés de rock and roll (desde 1956) y uno de los iniciadores de la bossa nova brasileña.
Compuso para numerosos artistas, especialmente para Régine y Sheila, e hizo conocer al gran público a la cantante Keren Ann. Art Mengo compuso para él.
Llegó a Francia junto con toda su familia desde la Guayana francesa cuando tenía 12 años, el 16 de agosto de 1929.
Su padre, Clovis, y su madre, Antonine Paterne, hija de un indio caribeño, eran ambos nativos de Guadalupe: su padre de Morne-à-l'Eau y su madre de Puerto-Luis. Tuvo una hermana, Alice, y un hermano, André, con el cual cantaba a dúo al principio de su carrera. André Salvador llegó a ser galardonado con el Grand prix du Disque de 1947 con "Hey-ba-ba-re-bop", acompañado de la orquesta de André Ekyan.
En 1933 obtuvo sus primeros trabajos en los cabarets parisinos. Su talento como músico y humorista le hacen ganarse el aprecio del público. En 1935, actúa en el Jimmy’s Bar, famoso cabaret de la época. Django Reinhardt le acoge entonces como acompañante.
En 1941, huye de Francia donde la guerra se va extendiendo. No volverá hasta la capitulación de Alemania.
De diciembre de 1941 a diciembre de 1945 formó parte de la orquesta de Ray Ventura durante una estancia en América del Sur, en la que recorrió países como Brasil, Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, etc. Destacó ya entonces por su talente como guitarrista y cantante, aparte de por su habilidad cómica para imitar al personaje de Popeye.
Más adelante, ya como cantante profesional, empezó a combinar en su repertorio canciones originales con temas más románticos y tradicionales, siendo respaldado más habitualmente con las primeras, dado que en las segundas la competencia era muy fuerte con cantantes como André Claveau y Jorge Ulmer.
En 1949, obtuvo el gran premio musical de la Académie Charles-Cros y entró a trabajar en el ABC, templo de los music-halls parisinos, en la revista de Mistinguett Paris s’amuse. Es ahí donde conoce a su futura mujer y representante Jacqueline.
Bajo el seudónimo de Henry Cording, cantó en 1956 temas de rock and roll en francés, escritos por Borís Vian y compuestos por Miguel Legrand y él mismo. Paralelamente, grabó un disco de jazz como guitarrista titulado Salvador plays the blues.
Su carrera tomó un rumbo determinante en los años sesenta, en gran parte gracias a las emisiones de variedades de Maritie y Gilbert Carpentier, en las que él interpretaba canciones de humor que le consagrarían como cantante popular: "Faut rigoler", "Zorro est arrivé", "Juanita Banana", "Le travail c'est la santé", etc. Como consecuencia de este éxito, consiguió su propio programa de radio vespertino titulado « Salves d'Or ».
En 1975, participó en un relato musical para niños titulado Émilie Jolie, escrito por Philippe Chatel, en el que interpretaba al cuentista y cantaba tres canciones, una de ellas con Françoise Hardy y Émilie Chatel.
Tras la muerte de su esposa Jacqueline en 1976, Henri Salvador volvería a casarse en 1986 con Sabine Elysabeth Marie-Chantal.
Su carrera sufrió un eclipse en los años ochenta y noventa.
En 2000, regresó al primer plano de la actualidad con el disco Chambre avec vue.
Salvador fue también un jugador de petanca de alto nivel, llegando a publicar un tebeo sobre el tema: Passion... Pétanque y a inventar también bolas para el mismo que llegaron a comercializarse. Fue también doblador de películas de animación, como hizo en 1990 en La Petite Sirène, de los Estudios Disney, haciendo de Sebastián. En 2006, con motivo de la edición en DVD de la película, grabaría también los diálogos de la secuela La Petite Sirène 2 : Retour à l'océan.
En noviembre de 2001, se casa con la productora de televisión Catherine Costa.
Su último disco, Révérence, apareció a finales de 2006.
Henri Salvador puso fin a su carrera artística tras una actuación en el Palacio de Congresos de París el 21 de diciembre de 2007.
El fotógrafo Juan María Périer es hijo de Henry Salvador.

ROY SCHEIDER
Died Feb. 11, 2008

El actor Roy Scheider, que alcanzó fama internacional como el jefe de policía Martin Brody en la película de Steven Spielberg 'Tiburón', ha fallecido a los 75 años, informaron fuentes del hospital de la Universidad de Arkansas.
El portavoz de la institución, David Robinson, no especificó la causa del fallecimiento, aunque trabajadores del centro explicaron que el intérprete estadounidense había recibido tratamiento por un mieloma múltiple durante los últimos dos años.
Tanto Scheider como Richard Dreyfuss, que encarnaba a un oceanógrafo, protagonizaron 'Tiburón' (1975), la cinta que inauguró la era de los 'taquillazos' de Hollywood.
Fue el primer filme que sobrepasó la barrera de los 100 millones de dólares en las salas.
En 2005, una de las frases más celebres de Scheider en esa película ('Vas a necesitar un barco más grand') fue escogida por el Instituto Americano del Cine (AFI) entre las mejores líneas de la historia del celuloide estadounidense. El otro actor del trío protagonista de 'Tiburón' era Robert Shaw ('Quint', en la película), que murió en 1978.
Scheider volvió a verse las caras con otro enorme escualo en la segunda parte de ese clásico, 'Tiburón II' (1978), una cinta menor dirigida por Jeannot Szwarc.
A pesar del éxito masivo de la célebre película de Spielberg, el reconocimiento académico le llegó por 'The French Connection', por la que fue candidato al Óscar como Mejor Actor Secundario en 1972, un filme en el que coincidió con el español Fernando Rey.
Ocho años más tarde volvió a aspirar al Óscar, esta vez como protagonista de 'All That Jazz', de Bob Fosse.
Sus comienzos en la industria le facilitaron algunos papeles en cintas de terror de serie B, 'The Curse of the Living Corpse' (1964), aunque no tardaría en llamar la atención del cinéfilo tras su aparición en 'Klute' (1971), con Jane Fonda.
Su actuación en 'Tiburón' no le apartó de otros proyectos independientes de calidad como la clásica 'Marathon Man', de John Schlesinger, en donde encarnaba a un agente de la CIA y hermano del personaje de Dustin Hoffman.
Otros proyectos populares en los que participó fueron la segunda parte de '2001: Una odisea en el espacio', de Stanley Kubrick, que se tituló '2010' (1984), y 'La Casa Rusia' (1990), junto a Sean Connery y Michelle Pfeiffer.
En sus últimos años de vida, Scheider participó activamente en manifestaciones contra la intervención militar de EEUU en Irak.

Eva Dahlbeck falleció en Estocolmo, según confirmó uno de sus hijos. A los 87 años de edad, nos deja para siempre uno de los mitos del cine nórdico e internacional. De la mano de su compatriota, el director Ingmar Berman alcanzó el reconocimiento profesional en los años cincuenta. Juntos trabajaron en películas como 'Tres mujeres' o 'Sueños'. Años más tarde la actriz se retiraría de la interpretación para dedicarse a la literatura. Y hacia 1970 decidió abandonar definitivamente el mundo del celuloide.

De acordo com o obituário divulgado pelo hospital, a causa da morte de Tourinho foi a ruptura de um aneurisma cerebral.

Biografia

O ator estreou no teatro, em 1982, na peça infantil O Embarque de Noé, de Maria Clara Machado e direção de Toninho Lopes. No ano seguinte fez seu début no teatro adulto com o espetáculo De Noite Com Uma Luz, dirigido por Louise Cardoso e Bia Junqueira.

HEATH LEDGER
Died Jan. 22, 2008

Oscar-nominated Australian actor Heath Ledger was found dead in a New York City apartment. The 28-year-old actor leaves behind a two-year-old daughter. The cause of death is as yet unknown but police stated that over-the-counter sleeping pills were found nearby. Mr. Ledger was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his work in Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain."
Heath Ledger began his acting career in his native Australia. He appeared in several movies and was a regular on a couple of TV series including "Home and Away." His early film credits include "Paws" and "Black Rock." Mr. Ledger's first US film was "10 Things I Hate About You" opposite Julia Stiles.
Heath Ledger's break through film was "The Patriot." He played Mel Gibson's son in the 2000 epic. The following year Mr. Ledger cemented his reputation as a fine actor in the Oscar-winning "Monster's Ball." His performance as Billy Bob Thorton's troubled son should have earned him an Oscar nomination. His character's on-screen suicide in that film was as shocking to me as a viewer as the news of his death is today. That same year Mr. Ledger shored up his younger fan base with the silly but very successful "A Knight's Tale."
His next few films were not as successful. However "The Four Feathers," "Ned Kelly" and "The Order" did not sink Heath Ledger's acting career. 2005 would turn out to be a very good year professionally. He appeared in four films that year. While "Casanova," "The Lords of Dogtown" and "The Brothers Grimm" did little more than confirm his status as a Movie Star, his work in "Brokeback Mountain" proved beyond all doubt that the acting talent he showed in "The Patriot" and "Monster's Ball" was no fluke. Ang Lee's landmark film was a daring piece of acting in an uptight world. Mr. Ledger not only received an Oscar nomination for his work, but he won the Best Actor Award from the New York Film Critics Circle and the Australian Film Institute. He was also nominated for BAFTA, SAG, Independent Spirit and Golden Globe acting awards for the film. Mr. Ledger followed up this success with roles in "Candy" and "I'm Not There." The photo at top right was taken by EI's Jonathan Hickman at the Toronto Film Festival as Mr. Ledger fielded questions about Neil Armfield's "Candy." In "I'm Not There" Heath Ledger was one of six actors to portray singer Bob Dylan during different phases of his career. Heath Ledger had wrapped shooting on the up-coming "Batman" movie "The Dark Knight." He played the villain The Joker. He was currently filming Terry Gilliam's "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus." It is not known at this time how his death will affect that film's production.
Heath Ledger was the father of two-year-old daughter Matilda. Matilda's mother is Mr. Ledger's "Brokeback Mountain" costar Michelle Williams. Prayers of comfort for his family and friends.

ALLAN MELVIN
Died Jan. 17, 2008

Character actor Allan Melvin died of cancer at age 84. Mr. Melvin was one of the most familiar faces on TV from the 1950s through the 1970s. Mr. Melvin played recurring roles on numerous TV shows. My fondest memories of his work were of his performances as Archie Bunker's friend Barney Hefner on "All in the Family." Other memorable TV roles include Cpl. Henshaw on "The Phil Silvers Show," as Sgt. Hacker on "Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C." and as Sam the butcher on "The Brady Bunch." Mr. Melvin was also a noted voice actor. He contributed live and voice performances to over 70 TV shows and films. His live action credits include "Route 66," "Perry Mason," "Lost in Space," "The Andy Griffith Show" and "With Six You Get Eggroll." Mr. Melvin provided the voice of "Magilla Gorilla." He voices Sgt.

The production ran for 472 performances in 1951 and 52.

BOBBY FISCHER
Died Jan. 17, 2008

Chess champion turned madman Bobby Fischer died at age 64. Had Bobby Fischer died 25 years ago, he would be remembered as a hero of the Cold War. Mr. Fischer beat Russian chess champion Boris Spasky in 1972. The victory landed Mr. Fischer on every major magazine cover in the country. It was a symbolic victory for his homeland in the decades old ideological war with the Soviet Union. The thing is, Bobby Fischer didn't die 25 years ago. Maybe Mr. Fischer's anti-Semitic, anti-American rants following the 9/11 terrorist attacks were the result of severe mental illness. Maybe they were heartfelt beliefs. I find it hard to give praise to a man who said things that Adolph Hitler would have been proud of. Following 9/11 Mr. Fischer called for the murder of hundreds of thousands of Americans and Jews. He called for the destruction of America and Israel. In my mind, that erases whatever accomplishments he may have had as a chess champion. It is not my place to judge another's heart. Mr. Fischer had a history of erratic behavior and mental health problems. His hateful speeches could very well have been the result of disease. I condemn the words he spoke and the comfort they gave the forces of evil. I'll leave it to God to judge the heart that spoke those words. Steve Zallian's excellent "Searching for Bobby Fischer" had nothing to do with Mr. Fischer's life or career.

SUZANNE PLESHETTE
Died Jan. 19, 2008

Multi-Emmy nominated actress Suzanne Pleshette died of respiratory failure at age 70. I imagine I am just one of several million men around the world who had a movie crush on Suzanne Pleshette. My crush started when I was too young to even know what to do with girls. I first noticed the beautiful actress on the late show in the movies " Nevada Smith " and Hitchcock's " The Birds ." I couldn't understand why Rod Taylor's character in " The Birds " preferred Tippi Hedren over Suzanne Pleshette. I still don't. My crush was further fueled by Ms. Pleshette's appearance on " The Tonight Show ." She read Johnny Carson a poem she had written about lusting after a younger man with washboard abs. Mr. Carson, as were most men who heard her words, was moved in an animal way by the poem. I remember wishing I was a California surfer hanging out front the TV studio when I heard her speak. Suzanne was not just beautiful, she was one of the most versatile and talented actresses to ever grace the screen. Drama, comedy..didn't matter. Ms Pleshette hit the mark right on target. Her performance as the frustrated school teacher in Alfred Hitchcock's " The Birds " contains subtleties that are worth studying in acting class. She showed so much burning below the surface in her supporting role that the viewer can catch something new upon each new screening. TV audiences will remember her best as Bob Newhart's wife Emily on " The Bob Newhart Show ." She was the perfect 'straightman' for Newhart. It is a blessing that the series can be enjoyed on DVD all these years later. She reprised her role as Emily for the final episode of her former co-star's 1990 TV series " Newhart ." The final episode had Bob Newhart waking up with Ms. Pleshette as if they wer still in the old TV series and him acting as if the new TV series was just a dream. A great moment in TV history. Suzanne Pleshette was nominated four times for Emmy Awards. She also received two Golden Globe nominations. Ms. Pleshette's beauty was accented by one of the sexiest voices in film history. Along with Lauren Bacall and Kathleen Turner, Ms. Pleshette was blessed with a sexy, husky voice. Her vocal talents led to a number of voice roles in animated films and TV series. Suzanne Pleshette's many film credits include the hilarious " It It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium ," " The Geisha Boy ," " Fate is the Hunter ," " A Rage to Live ," " The Power ," " Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came? ," " Support Your Local Gunfighter ," " The Shaggy DA " and " Oh God, Book 2 ." Suzanne Pleshette appeared in nearly 130 films, TV shows and documentaries. She appeared on most of the notable TV shows from the 1950s to the present time. Her many TV credits range from " Have Gun, Will Travel " through " Will & Grace ." Her voice credits include the English version of Miyazaki's Oscar winning " Spirited Away " and " The Lion King II ." Ms. Pleshette performed several times on Broadway including in productions of " Compulsion " and " The Miracle Worker ." Suzanne Pleshette was the widow of actor Tom Poston. Her first marriage was to actor Troy Donahue. She was married to Texas oil man Tim Galligher for 32 years until his death in 2000.

GEORGE MACDONALD FRASER Died Jan. 2, 2008

Writer George MacDonald Fraser died at age 82. Mr. Fraser was the author of the popular Sir Harry Flashman series of books. His hero was a rogue and a scoundrel who always seemed to come out on top of every situation. The 11 " Flashman " books saw Sir Harry make his way through many historical events and into the hearts of readers worldwide. Only one of the " Flashman " books was turned into a film. Richard Lester directed " Royal Flash " which starred Malcolm McDowell as Sir Harry. Unfortunately the film did not capture the magic of the book. This was a shock as director Richard Lester and Mr. Fraser had collaborated on the classic " The Three Musketeers " and " The Four Musketeers " just prior to " Royal Flash ." Mr. Fraser's scripts for the Dumas films resounded with the humor for which his " Flashman " books were known. Mr. Fraser's other screenwriting credits include " Crossed Swords ," " Red Sonja ," the James Bond film " Octopussy " and " The Return of the Musketeers ." George MacDonald Fraser served his country in the Army during WWII. He was appointed OBE in 1999.

NATASHA COLLINS Died Jan, 3, 2008


Further tests will be needed to determine what caused the death of a children's TV presenter. A post-mortem examination on the body of Natasha Collins, fiancee of fellow TV presenter Mark Speight, was "inconclusive", the Metropolitan Police said.
Miss Collins was found in the bath of the penthouse home shared by the couple in St John's Wood, north-west London, last Thursday. A police spokesman said extra toxicology tests will now take place to try and find what led to her sudden death.
It was reported that Miss Collins had taken cocaine before her death. But Speight's mother, Jacqueline, said Miss Collins may have died after taking drugs prescribed for a medical condition.
Prior to the post-mortem examination, Scotland Yard detectives said a suspected drug overdose was one line of inquiry in the unexplained death.
Miss Collins was hit by a car about seven years ago and reports said she had suffered regular fits ever since.
After her body was discovered, Speight was arrested on suspicion of murder and supplying class A drugs. He has been bailed by police until early February. He insisted he had nothing to do with his fiancee's death.
Speight, originally from Wolverhampton, is best known for the BBC children's art show SMart, which has run for more than 10 years. He shot to fame as the rubber-faced presenter of Children's ITV Saturday morning show Scratchy & Co. Miss Collins starred alongside him on BBC children's show See It Saw It.

ANGEL GONZALEZ (VII)
Died Jan, 12, 2008

Date of Birth: 3 September 1925 , Oviedo, Asturias, Spain
Date of Death: 12 January 2008 , Madrid, Spain.
Ángel González , the renowned Spanish poet who was one of the members of the so-called ‘Generation of the 1950s,' has died at the age of 82. Born in Oviedo , Asturias, in 1925, he died in a Madrid hospital in the early hours of Saturday after a lung illness.

Víctor García de la Concha , Director of the Real Academia de la Lengua , the official watchdog of the Spanish language of which Ángel González was a member, said at the service on Sunday where the poet's remains were cremated, that his death ‘is an enormous loss for the world of literature in general.' González held the Prince of Asturias Award for Literature , awarded in 1985, and the Reina Sofía Iberoamerican Poetry Prize from 1996.
Much of his work addressed two main themes: freedom and solidarity. He recorded a CD with the singer songwriter, Pedro Guerra , in 2003, ‘La palabra en el aire,' and also collaborated with the tenor, Joaquín Pixán , and the pianist Alejandro Zabala .
Another who worked with him was the singer songwriter, Joaquín Sabina . He said this weekend, ‘I don't know what to say. I am an orphan. I have lost my father, a maestro, a brother, a guide, a friend, an example … I hope Spaniards will realise that this man was a living poet, one of the most dignified, decent and exemplary human beings I have seen in my life.'

ADRIANO GONZALEZ LEON

Date of Death:12 January 2008, Caracas, Venezuela. (stroke)
Filmography Actor:
Ifigenia (1986) .... Tio Pancho
El escritor venezolano Adriano González León murió en Caracas a causa de un infarto. Nacido en la ciudad de Valera, en 1931, León trabajó como diplomático en Buenos Aires, París y Madrid. En 1968 logró el Premio Biblioteca Breve por su libro País Portátil. León, además, era profesor de Literatura en la Universidad Central de Venezuela.
Venezuelan writer Adriano Gonzalez Leon, the winner of Spain's Biblioteca Breve prize in 1968 with "Pais Portatil" (Portable Country) which was later made into a movie, has died en Caracas, Venezuelan media reported Monday. He was 77.
Gonzalez Leon, who succumbed to a heart attack on Saturday, said several years ago that he was "fed up with the fact that they believe I only wrote one book, and that it was portable!"
The Venezuelan press reported that the writer died in a capital bar on Saturday.
Gonzalez Leon, of whom his biographers agreed that "he drinks life in several swallows," published in the mid-1990s his last novel "Viejo," which Colombian Nobel Literature prizewinner Gabriel Garcia Marquez said he would have liked to write himself.

Johnny Podres, el serpentinero que guió a los Dodgers de Brooklyn hacia su único título de la Serie Mundial, en 1955, ha fallecido. Tenía 75 años.
Un vocero del Hospital de Glens Falls confirmó el deceso, pero se negó a dar detalles.
El zurdo fue elegido para cuatro Juegos de Estrellas y fue el primer Jugador Más Valioso en la historia de la Serie Mundial. Se convirtió en un héroe para los aficionados al béisbol en Brooklyn cuando los Dodgers pusieron fin a décadas de frustración y derrotaron a los Yanquis para ganar la Serie Mundial.
Fue la primera vez que un equipo ganó una Serie Mundial a cuatro triunfos después de perder los dos primeros encuentros, y fue la única victoria de Brooklyn en el clásico de otoño. Los Dodgers se mudaron a Los Angeles después de la temporada de 1957.
La carrera de Podres abarcó 15 años con los Dodgers en Brooklyn y Los Angeles, así como con los Tigres de Detroit y los Padres de San Diego. Se retiró en 1969, a los 36 años, con una foja de 148-116 de por vida.
