TCM remember '09

12.30.2009

Sadly, we have had a lot of great movie professionals pass away this year. From John Hughes to Patrick Swayze to the most recent passing of Brittany Murphy, we have lost some great talent.

That's what is so great about film. A person can easily be immortalized with the help of a camera. Even a person behind the scenes is recognized in the credits, or their contributions are seen in some way throughout a movie. What a wonderful way to be remembered.

Sadly, Brittany Murphy is not included in this video as it was made before she passed away.

Extra Tidbit: I cannot watch this without getting majorly choked up. RIP Brittany.

Nice Video

I had no idea Sam Bottoms died, and I totally forgot about Pat Hingle. We lost a lot of talented people this past year. TCM did a nice job with this video, I wonder if the tribute video at the Oscars will be as good...

The song is a recording by Steve Earle called "To Live is To Fly" by Townes Van Zandt.

This year has sucked on so many levels. I'm glad to see it go.

They weren't forgotten. See Pat Hingle at 2:12 and Eartha Kitt at 2:15.

I was surprised to see Ron Silver. I had no clue he passed away. Made me sad.

I would say that EBastard was pointing out that he/she had forgotten about Hingle and Kitt, not the videomakers.

Completely forgot...

about Eartha Kitt and Pat Hingle. But that was a beautiful and classy vid from TCM.

And yeah, seriously fuck 2009.

What No MJ?

Ok, he may be most famous for his music but surely Michael Jackson deserves a place on that list for starring in Moonwalker? And no I am not a fan of his, it just seems odd that he doesn't get a mention...

I don't hink anyone would have questioned his inclusion - he was also in The Wiz - but his exclusion isn't unusual, either. There's a lot that the filmmakers left out. They can't include everyone, after all.

This has been a really good year for movies, but with so many greats passing away, I say good riddance 2009.

Sam Bottoms and Dom DeLuise are dead??

And no disrespect, but I could've sworn Eartha Kitt died last year. But then, if they didn't get Brittany Murphy in this year, it's possible she passed too late so they're making up for it.
