I met Seamus Heaney two weeks later, in the same doorway. He stepped back, held the door open for me, and gave a little bow. [Smile]

When the news was first reported, they said 85. I didn't check his birth date and it seems most of the news outlets didn't either for about 15 minutes.

I was going in as they were coming out ... or the other way round ... I can't quite remember. Anyway, it was a long time ago in a place far far away, and they were the only two gentlemen I met in that particular doorway. [Biased]

Two baseball players have passed (although neither were on my list). (1) Don Baylor of the then "California" Angels (before they became the Anaheim Angels, before they became the Los Angeles Angels) and later the very first manager of the Colorado Rockies, and (2) catcher Darren "Dutch" Daulton of the late 1980s/early 1990s Philadelphia Phillies.

Points!

I am in two minds about this. I think he was brilliant - he made the Generation Game a huge success, and the Saturday evening entertainment slot.

I just feel that in Strictly, he was showing his age. I feel that he might have been better leaving sooner, with people wanting more.

But he was one of the last of the all-round entertainers. A generation and a skillset that is no more.

Dick Gregory, a pioneering force of comedy in the 1960s who parlayed his career as a stand-up into a life of social and political activism, died Saturday of heart failure at 84.

Some friends and I went to see him in 1968.

Thanks. I was surprised to see that Dick Gregory seemed to be getting the bigger lead. I'm pretty much indifferent to both comics, but I would have assumed Lewis was the better known. (Bias: I was raised by parents born in the mid-30s, who pretty much missed out on the 1960s, culturally speaking.)

Well, while I think his popularity in France might have been somewhat exaggerated, I believe it remains the case that towards the end he was more popular in continental Europe relative to the USA, and probably anglosphere generally. I remember Hardly Working, which was I believe the last film marketed as a genuine Jerry Lewis film, opened in my hometown, and didn't last a week in the theatres. Whereas my understanding is that it did quite well in Europe.

So, just speculation on my part, but I'd guess that for a lot of people who would be playing this game, he was barely on the radar as a public figure.

Jean-Luc Godard on Jerry Lewis

From 1980. You'll notice that Cavett observes that Lewis is popular with "Europeans", but doesn't mention France specifically. I'd be willing to bet that this specific interview is what prompted the idea that he was big in France, since IIRC it was shortly after this that I first heard people saying that.

Doubt he was on any lists but Brian Aldiss has died aged 92 - he was a science fiction author, for those who don't live with their noses in a book.

Also another one that was probably not on any lists Richard Gordon (pen name) of the Doctor in the House books has died aged 84. I've read the books, heard the radio versions, not really seen the films.

Oh... [Tear] a double whammy.

I saw Brian Aldiss book speak at a Bradford Fantastic Film Festival about his book, Prometheus Unbound (made into a film with John Hurt, and Michael Hutchence as Lord Byron), and life in general. He was an interesting writer and was never backward in coming forward with an opinion for interviews about the state of modern SF.

I also had a weird obsession in my teen years with some of the early Richard Gordon books, but hadn't spared him a thought in years.

I honestly thought he had died years ago. Can't get points from the already dead, after all. I honestly can't say I'd heard any mention of him in a very, very long time.

So, of course, I'm reading the obits. Half the reason I like this game is finding out about people I know nothing about.

I grew up on the Doctor in the House films - they were usually on TV in the afternoons at weekends, along with swashbucklers, and other films in black and white. Also I rather liked Dirk Bogarde, who starred in them.
There was also a TV series in the 1970s starring Richard O'Sullivan. And the TV sent me on to read the books, mostly picked up at jumble sales.

Its not quite right to say Peter Hall founded the RSC - what he did was to change the name when the original charter was reincorporated and to get funding from the Arts Council for a permanent company of actors, as opposed to just hiring people per season.
