Yep … a genuine SW legend - seemed like a nice guy from the interview I saw, on ‘Adios Sabata’, I think.

Adios, Frank Kramer!

R.I.P. Gianfranco Parolini.

Think i’ll watch Sabata tonight, it’s been awhile.


#1527

Quite an age. I remember him saying he was completely anti alcohol and smoking.


(Asa) #1528

Not a bad idea at all, LG.

RIP Gianfranco

“And he couldn’t do it. He could not fucking die. How could he leave? How could he go? Everything he hated was here.” – Philip Roth died two days ago, on May 22, at the age of eighty-five. The final curtain on Sabbath’s Theater.

Big Clint Walker passed away… R.I.P. “Cheyenne”


(Piripero) #1535

Sorry to hear that. Always thought this gentle giant was underated. His performances were understated and subtle and his stature, looks and fabulously deep timbred voice were extraordinary. In short, he was made to play the cool, laconic Western hero archetype.

I’d love to have seen him in a few good Spaghettis. First encountered him playing a very beguiling werewolf, probably in a made-for-TV drama.

I just found out about Clint Walker an hour ago when my Mom called to tell me.

Eight days ago I had sent him an email, but it came back as undeliverable a few days ago. Later I sent another email to his other address and it also came back. He was gone by then. I will remember our correspondence over the years with fondness. He was a great guy. I’m so glad to have a photo of Cheyenne riding Brandy-- inscribed to me by Clint Walker-- on my wall.

I thought that he deserved more major roles than he got. For me he was the quintessential Western hero.

On Tuesday (he passed away on Monday, unknown to me) I was watching my last recorded episode of “Cheyenne” (“The Brand”) before we get rid of the cable tv (almost all garbage IMO). When it was over I said, “Goodbye, Cheyenne.”


(The Man With a Name) #1537

So weird since I was talking about Clint Walker the day he died and then found out. R.I.P.

An amazing cinematographer, one of the greatest. RIP.

Steve Ditko, creator of Spider Man has passed away.


#1541

Very sad. Apparently, he died in New York on June 29 and was found dead in his apartment by a social worker. Extensive obituary on tcj.com, the Comics Journal’s website.


(Wilco Vedder) #1542

I have read that. Very sad to end your life so lonely. I understood he wanted to live his live in the shadows.
