Jackie Stallone
While everyone will probably mention her stint on the UK edition of Big Brother, I was particularly glad to get introduced to The Silver Foxes: Shape Up America! workout video on an edition of the Red Letter Media "Wheel of the Worst" show, in which Jackie (taking it too seriously) gets involved in a dominance feud with Laurie Williams (Robin Williams' mother) for supremacy and the hand of Harry Hoffman (Dustin Hoffman's dad), whilst Sal Pacino (Al Pacino's dad) doesn't take anything seriously!

It is good to know that even when you are extremely famous that your parents can still manage to thoroughly embarrass you by their antics!

(That is also the same episode that introduced me to the amazing Christmas With Dennis as well!)

Tommy DeVito, from COVID-19. A founding and longtime member of the Four Seasons, he was the baritone vocalist and lead guitarist for the group and inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the other three original members in 1990.

(Should probably have a dedicated thread at this point.)

Just why the poster decided to break up this interview in 94 parts is a mystery but here's the full playlist of a 2004 interview.

I think this is where I saw those interview on The Fugitive. Anyone know the identity of the DP he replaced?

I believe Frank Tidy (who did a brilliant job photographing Ridley Scott's The Duellists) was the first cinematographer on The Fugitive. Here is a picture of a clapperboard from the shooting with both of their names on it.

Production Designer/Concept Artist Ron Cobb.

Incredible resume. He wasn't the chief visual architect of films on a large number of films, but he was responsible for designing things
like Doc Brown's DeLorean and the Nostromo in Alien.

That would make sense since he did Under Siege. Funny, he actually worked with Davis on Chain Reaction, so they must have made up.

Serbian director Goran Paskaljević, probably best known for Cabaret Balkan (only one I've seen).

Thanks. His runs really were balletic. R.I.P.

Before my time, but you always heard Sayers talked about as one of the greats, and a class act.
He certainly carried the ball loosely, and liked to switch hands on longer runs.

Probably the best running back I ever saw was OJ, with his combination of speed, power and agility.
Probably the hardest to tackle and best open field jitterbug was Barry Sanders who just did uncanny stuff. Best power runner was probably Earl Campbell, who just plowed over and through defenders.
Dickerson was somewhere between OJ and Campbell.

Gotta hand it to guys who last 10+ years as an NFL running back. It's a brutal sport. Sayers played really just 5 years and finished shy of 5,000 yards. QB's Randall Cunningham and Cam Newton ran for almost as many yards in their careers. Quite a tribute that Sayers was elected to the HOF despite such a short career. Youngest player inducted.

Receivers have eclipsed Running Backs in terms of draw. Other than Zeek I can’t think of a current Running Back that has captured a franchise brand the way the old backs did. And, as you point out, the vast majority simply don’t stay healthy for long stretches to establish the status of those RBs. The game has changed, too. Those dodging and weaving heroics seem almost relegated to WRs or in the rare instance, QBs like Lamar Jackson.

Terribly sad. I've been a fan ever since seeing her in Shiota's Yomigaeri (2002).

Just awful. I really liked her in Creepy, a film I was kind of lukewarm on over all.
SpoilerShow
Her scream at the end is as crushing as any I've ever heard in a film.

I would quite like to see the anthology drama revolving around the lives of six women in one family, Flowers, some time, in which she stars in the 1964 section.

She also appeared in a few episodes of that ABC series Flashforward.

dadaistnun -- I fully share your feelings on Yuko Takeuchi's performance in Creepy and on Creepy itself.

colin -- there was a whole lot of excellent young actresses in Flowers. But I know nothing at all about the director.

Mac Davis, perhaps best known for the songs he wrote for Elvis Presley, including the single "In the Ghetto" from his greatest non-compilation LP, Elvis in Memphis.

Helen Reddy: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/ ... es-aged-78
A moving essay on the influence of Helen Reddy, by former Australian prime minister Julia Gillard.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-10-01/ ... d/11810546

For those in the UK wondering about the controversy surrounding the appointment of another former Australian PM, Tony Abbott as a trade envoy, you could do no better than watch Julia Gillard's justly famous 2012 'misogyny' speech in parliament.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCNuPcf8L00

From the 12 year old girl hearing 'I am Woman' and being inspired and encouraged to stand up and demand respect, to the scathing critique in one of the great speeches, Helen Reddys' influence has been, and will continue to inspire women to demand respect. Many songs are labelled an anthem, but 'I am Woman' is the ultimate example, and as it will be playing on radio, and 'trending' on spotify/ facebook etc, it is encouraging to think that many will hear it for the first time(or really listen to the lyrics for the first time), as Julia Gillard did, and be inspired and encouraged.
