Dead Celebrities 2013

This list can change daily!
Some deaths don't make the major news feeds the day they happen.
I add them as soon as I see them. Some have taken as long as a week to appear.

Editor's Note: Normally, even I would not classify a Choreographer as a "celebrity", but the Choreography in all three of these films, make these films grand! For instance, "Step in Time" created by Marc and his wife Dee Dee Wood, thrills me every time I see it. Thanks to music and lyrics by Richard and Robert Sherman I dare you not to sing along!

There are some grainy copies of the song on Utube, but Disney has blocked some of the pure cuts. Here's a superb new version I think you will enjoy as much as I did. Here's hoping it stays alive.

Peter O' Toole Age 81. Died December 14, 2013
Actor - "Lawrence of Arabia", "Man of La Mancha", "The Lion in Winter"
Editor's Note: I've been waiting for this one to hit. He has been ill for weeks.
Peter starred in one of my all time favorites, "Man of La Mancha". It is high among my collection of Musicals. Here is a clip of a few pieces of the movie. Impossible Dream

When you get done watching that video, check this one out. It's one of the best non-theatrical renditions of Impossible Dream I have ever heard.

While many cheered the most for "Lawrence of Arabia," it was never one of my favorites. I would much rather watch him in "The Lion in Winter," though suffering through Catherine Hepburn in that movie takes some effort.

It's a sad day for those who enjoy epic cinema.
