As a 12-year old in 1989, my friends and I did what we could to obtain a cassette copy of As Nasty As They Wanna Be. Luckily, the sellers at flea markets didn't really care if you were a minor or not and one of us was able to snag a copy and make copies for the rest. Good times.

What a shitty day.

I worked with Bob Woolf back in the early 90s. What a gentleman he was. Great career in sports.

Nice memory you got there Frau Blucher...

Martin Landau never took a day off. He reminded me of Jack Lemon in that sense. Just like Jack, I loved his idiosyncratic mannerisms.

British arthouse distribution legend Pam Engel, Artificial Eye co-founder and more recently a major part of New Wave Films.

"The end of an era" is an appalling cliché, but I'm really struggling to think of anyone else who's been in the business for as long as she was. Everyone else that I dealt with 25-30 years ago is either dead, retired or packed it in for something saner, and she was a veteran even then.

That's very sad news for anyone who relies on such figures to actually get the films onto screens and eventually on a disc. I've no way of knowing but it perhaps seems telling that the shift from Artificial Eye to New Wave led to Artificial Eye becoming less interesting and risk taking with their acquisitions (and more into US films with bankable casts), whilst New Wave helped to continue a commitment to existing artists as well as pioneer another whole swathe of arthouse cinema. Hopefully they'll be able to keep on in that tradition.

Sad news. I met her a few times in the days when I went to press showings.

Trevor Baxter, British actor whose best-known role was as Professor Litefoot in the Doctor Who serial The Talons of Weng-Chiang, and reprised the character in spin-off audiobooks. He had an acting career on both TV and in the cinema of over fifty years.
