Sad to mark the passing of Dede Allen, one of the more important film editors in recent history. She was especially prolific in the 70s. Check this filmography out:

The Hustler, Bonnie & Clyde, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Little Big Man, Slaughterhouse-Five, Night Moves, Reds, Slap Shot, and, attention peeps of my generation, Breakfast Club(!) ... among other films.

RIP, Dede Allen.

RIP, Lynn Redgrave, who passed away from breast cancer at the too young age of 67. :-(

I wish SMASHING TIME wasn't now out of print on DVD. Maybe time to revisit Georgy Girl.

Sorry that I didn't really know of her work until now, but I've added several of her titles to my queue to rectify that.

I've never seen the movie "Georgy Girl," but I've always dug the song.

It's kind of dated now and yet still adorable and interesting both.

(I also liked her in Woody Allen's goofy Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex... the bit where he plays a Jester.)

May Lena Horne rest in peace. Here's her singing Stormy Weather (from the excellent musical film).

And now Rue McClanahan. :( She was great in "Mama's Family" and "The Golden Girls".

I know :-( -- and in "Maude," too. And now (not really film related but) John Wooden is on death's door, too. (Legendary basketball coach.)

RIP, Patricia Neal. Anyone ever see Face in the Crowd or Hud? Very underrated actress.

RIP Satoshi Kon. Wow, only 47, so sad. He left an amazing legacy of film work, at least, but so much more to come. His films and TV work were all lovely...

RIP director Arthur Penn. One of the most important filmmakers of 60s and 70s for what he inspired, for the other directors who took his lead after Bonnie and Clyde, etc.

Favorite Penn films?

And rest in peace, film editor Sally Menke, frequent Q Tarantino collaborator. So sad, was out hiking during massive heatwave in LA, should never have happened. Too young. :-(

Tony Curtis 1925-2010

Tony Curtis' Hollywood legacy

As a kid, I really loved the movie "The Great Race" with Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, Peter Falk and Natalie Wood. Best pie fight ever?

Yeah the Grim Reaper is cutting a mean path through the film world this week. :-(

We unearthed a trailer for Sweet Smell of Success here, btw.

On Twitter, @FrankConniff: Tony Curtis at the Pearly Gates: "Yonder lies da castle of my heavenly fadder."

RIP, Blake Edwards. His best comedies are still classic, influential, uproarious.

What's your fave?
Still partial to the early Pink Panther flicks, esp Shot in the Dark. And SOB.

"The Great Race" is the one that I loved as a kid.

He was responsible for lots of good laughs over the years.

The Great Race is really underrated. I finally rewatched that just the other day on cable, after last seeing it as a kid. Really fun cast and movie. He was at his peak in the 60s but made some good stuff up through early 80s.

While we're RIP-ing the newly departed, fare the well cult auteur Jean Rollin. Man oh man did he make some crazy films.
