In honor of recent October weather that belongs no earlier than November, here is Bruno Hrabovsky’s piano rendition of Black Sabbath’s “Snowblind.”
Yes, I know this song is not actually about cold weather precipitation, but it creates a wintery mood anyway.
Reynolds needs no introduction, but it’s little appreciated just how good of an actor he actually was.
Here he is, epically trolling Marlon Brando on The Twilight Zone:
When is an underrated classic movie restored in high definition available at no charge?

Anyone who saw All Creatures Great and Small almost had to love it, and anyone who loved it had to think the best character was played by Robert Hardy. Siegfried Farnon was a fictional version of a real person created by James Herriott, pen name of a real life veterinarian who wrote fiction based on himself and his friends.
Siegfried was not the main character, but he was the dominant one. Employer of James and big brother of Tristan, his dominant, boisterous, hotheaded and contradictory personality was basically just hilarious and endearing. Veteran actor Robert Hardy brought him to life and made Siegfried unforgettable, a performance that no one could have improved on. Rest in peace, Mr. Hardy, and thank you for Siegfried.
Sir Michael Caine recently reads “If . . . .”, and reflects on life:
Rest in peace, not-so-dark knight. You brought joy to many, many people.
One of the most enjoyable aspects for me in researching Robot Monster was discovering that writer Wyott Ordung had some talent behind the camera and was a good actor. He directed (at least officially) Roger Corman’s first creature feature Monster from the Ocean Floor, while the film was mostly carried onscreen by its female lead, Anne Kimbell. Hers was the main character, and she more than ably pulled it off. From this write-up of her life, she loved the stage most as a performer, as many actors do, and stayed active in theater and the arts all around. Rest in peace.
