I will always remember Rutger Hauer because of the feelings I had the first time I saw Blade Runner. He was the star and hero of that movie. That's how I saw it anyway. I didn't like Ford's Rick Deckard at all and would have been happier if Roy Batty had walked away from that rooftop. Big Grin

Hauer did get to do a few starring roles after Blade Runner, but he was a Dutch actor and his best years were spent working there. Soldier of Orange was his big hit prior to going to Hollywood. Another fantasy film I liked afterwards, probably forgotten now, was Ladyhawke. Then he settled into B movies and smaller roles as he got older, some of which are guilty pleasures, if not good movies. Still always played a memorable part, even if it didn't deserve him. RIP Mr. Hauer.

Saddened to report the passing of voice actor Russi Taylor.

https://www.thewrap.com/russi-...-decades-dead-at-75/
The voice of Minnie Mouse for 30 years, Taylor also contributed memorably to "The Simpsons" with her characters Martin Prince, Uter, and the twins Sherri & Terri...



That summer wind came blowin' in from across the sea...

Richard Williams has passed away aged 86. He was the author of 'The Animator's Survival Kit' which should be a well-read resident on the bookshelf of anyone who ever wanted to animate pretty much anything. He was also famous for his own Oscar and BAFTA winnning animation work. Probably best known for his work as animation director on 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' way back in 1988. The BBC has posted a nice little obituary for him:

A true master indeed. Not only an Oscar winner for "Roger Rabbit", but he also did the wonderful 1971 cartoon version of "A Christmas Carol" and the animated sequences at the start of the hugely popular 1970's "Pink Panther" movies starring Peter Sellers (which probably led to the well-remembered Freleng-DePatie animated TV series from many of our childhoods).

Probably as close as well get to a card of Mr. Williams, some of his work from "Roger Rabbit" captured in sequence from the Topps set based on the movie.

I was a big fan of the "Pink Panther" movies and the cartoons of the 70's. The Pink Panther was different from other cartoons because he didn't talk. You could say it was a more primitive style with the character moving past simple backgrounds like the early cartoons (a style I've seen mimicked in my nieces' generation of shows), but with Henry Mancini's unforgettable music, it all worked for kids and adults. I hear that music in my head all the time like the music in the background of weekly NFL highlights shows of the 70's.

I liked the Ant and the Aardvark and Inspector Clouseau too - great voicework. I liked the later Texas Toads more than Misterjaw.
