Alan Rickman – More Than Just Snapefinaltaxiking-louissense1-rickmanrickman6

I really hate how the media sometimes summarize someone’s life in a few words. Many times they will look at an incredible actor and only see a few of the more popular roles he played and miss the greater body of work. They are doing that now with Alan Rickman. Actor Alan Rickman took his […](image)

Ziggy Stardust. Halloween Jack. The Thin White Duke. Thomas Jerome Newton. Aladdin Sane. Major Jack Celliers. The Cracked Actor. The Elephant Man. The Goblin King.

Oh Captain My Captain- Goodbye Robin Williamsfinaltaxifaces of Robin

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 02:55:44 +0000

Two entertainers shine the brightest in my memories of high school in the 70’s. Steve Martin in his white suit, with his “wild and crazy guy” act, and Robin Williams sporting rainbow suspenders while delivering an Orkiain handshake, saying "Na-Nu Na-Nu" as if it were the most natural thing in the world. The catchphrase among my classmates back in the day was "Shazbot”, a made-up swear word from the show that made us feel like we were all in on the joke. -- Sadly, Robin Williams, often labeled the “Funniest Man in the World”, has taken his Final Taxi.

In 1978 just as actor Peter Falk was leaving his most famous role – that of Lt. Columbo – he took a part in a comedy called “The Cheap Detective.”  I was excited about seeing Falk in a different role than I had seen him in before.  I laughed at Falk throughout the film, but […](image)

The first celebrity I ever met was an actress called Judy Strangis. It was at Universal Studios in California in the mid 70’s. I watched her on a TV series called “Room 222” and had seen her in a few TV appearances of “Batman.” During these shows she worked alongside Julie Newmar who played the […](image)
