    I completely missed this or it just wasn't publicized very much. I loved Blake Edwards. Victor/Victoria is one of my very favorite movies. I can practically recite the entire movie. My thoughts are with Julie Andrews and their children.

    Steve Landesberg died yesterday in Los Angeles. He was 65.

    I remember watching him on Barney Miller. I loved watching him...he had this awesome dry sense of humor.

    Just read that Steve Landesberg, who played Detective Sgt. Arthur Dietrich on the long-running 1970s cop comedy "Barney Miller" passed away. He had such a dry, funny way about him.

    Bless his heart, Abe has one of those appearances that makes you wonder if anyone will be able to tell when he actually dies.

    He sure kept his illness a secret. Then again he was an actor, not a celebrity in that sense. Did some great work.

    I was just coming in here to post about Pete Postlethwaite. He was one of my favorite actors I think my favorite movie is his is Brassed Off. He was much too young.
