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

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?

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.

Ralph Sonny Barger once offered his Angels to US Gov for service as "Gorillas" in Vietnam.Think he wrote directly to LBJ.
At the drive-in, I saw a what-if movie, where bikers did plunge into the jungle---and became involved with the residents of a village they were trying to protect---still the only movie I've seen in which Vietnamese were presented as actual people--very rare to see civilians at all.
