Not the adult Violet (Gloria Grahame, who died 40 years ago), but the child Violet (Jeanine Ann Roose) has passed at 84.

Max Julien, aka Goldie in The Mack.

Julien is also memorable in the somewhat obscure Jules Dassin-directed film Uptight (1968)

Also worth noting the Bogdanoff twins didn't have the vaccine because they 'didn't believe in medical interventions'. Playing the "we never had plastic surgery" card to the last.

That Morbius quote is, of course, classic, although I ultimately ended up liking that movie, perhaps due to a form of Stockholm Syndrome.

He'd be a legend if all he'd ever made were The Last Picture Show and Paper Moon. Curious, though: is anything he directed post-, say, 1985 worth a damn?

I listened to an interview with him today and he said everyone always thinks he wore ascots, but it was actually just a bandana and it's a habit he picked up from the crew in Texas while filming Last Picture Show.

I'm always talking about To Sir with Love; listed it on my favourite-movies-ever poll recently. If you're interested in Poitier, Mark Harris's Pictures at a Revolution is highly recommended.

Oddly enough, one of Peter Bogdanovich's TV movies was To Sir, With Love II, which is about Thackeray moving to Chicago and taking a job at an inner-city school. Lulu and Judy Geeson reprise their characters from the original.
