RIP Emma Cohen. Spanish actress and director Emma Cohen passed away from cancer at her home in Ciudad Santo Domingo, Madrid, Madrid, Spain. She was 69. Cohen studied to be a lawyer in Barcelona because it was her parent’s wishes. When she discovered the theater and began reading the classics she changed her mind and became an actress. She went on to appear in over 80 films and TV appearances as well as being a screenwriter and director. She was the widow of director Fernando Fernán Gómez [1921-2007]. Emma appeared in three Euro-westerns: The Legend of Frenchie King 1971 as Virginie, Cut-Throats Nine 1972 as Sarah Brown and Cipolla Colt (aka Spaghetti Western) 1975 as Mary Ann Pulitzer.

Gene Wilder (Jerry Silberman) passed away

(Farmer_J) #1294

I was all misty eyed when I heard the news. The Frisco Kid and Silver Streak were my favorite Wilder films. RIP Gene.

(Phil H) #1295

Very sad to hear this. Wilder in full manic mode a la Young Frankenstein and The Producers is a joy to behold.

(Toscano) #1296


My feelings very similar to those expressed by Phil H.
I heard the news last night, and my immediate thought was one of loss; and yet, also, of joy, at the countless hours of pleasure that Gene Wilder brought to the screen.
When a personality has spent his/her life bringing laughter to so many multitudes, then it is difficult to know whether to laugh or cry.
Gene would probably say “'Do both”.
And - by the way, “I prefer FRANKENSTEEN”!.
