    TV host Regis Philbin passed away.

    His show with Kathy Lee Gifford was a little too bland for me, but I always enjoyed seeing him as a guest on the Letterman show.

    Former Chicago ABC affiliate meteorologist Jerry Taft passed recently. Retired just a couple of years back. While I usually just try to accept that there's going to be upsetting times that are just an unfortunate reality of being alive, it was still a shame to hear that a guy that still seemed like he had a lot of "Worthwhile Living..." years still ahead of him had passed.

    John Saxon, one of the greatest B-Movie stars most commonly known for his roles in "Enter the Dragon" and "Nightmare on Elm Street", died of pneumonia at the age of 84.

    My then-teenage mother met him back in the '50s at a friend's birthday party in Brooklyn. She said all of the girls (including herself) thought he was dreamy.

    For me, the guy seemed to pop up in every show I watched as a kid, as well as many '70s made-for-TV films. Of course, no film made more of an impact on my generation of boys like Enter the Dragon did, which still does it for m all those years later.

    RIP

    Call me old fashioned but I loved the pairings of Olivia de Haviland with Errol Flynn. My favorite is Robin Hood. A bit of trivia.... the palomino horse she rode in that movie was later obtained by Roy Rogers and he became known as Trigger.

    Yeah, she's Melanie in GWTW but I really don't like that movie.

    I loved John Saxon. He had a number of appearances on SMDM/BW, most notably playing "Maskatron" and in the second Bigfoot 2-part Crossover story, "The Return of Bigfoot".

    He was very athletic and muscular and kept up intensvive exercsise even a few years ago.

    That's an interesting fact I did not know. As a diabetic myself, I tend to focus far more on his advocacy that I do his actual IMDB resume. He was one of the good ones.

    Credit where it's due, the man's role in The Thing was always a seriously unsung gem.
