    Composer John Barry, who wrote the James Bond theme and Goldfinger, as well as the music for Out of Africa and Midnight Cowboy, has died.

    Maybe not a celebrity in the typical on-screen sense of the word but a significant contributor to some memorable films.

    I hadn't thought about him in years, but when I heard of his passing, I was immediately reminded of his rubbery face . . . sticking out his tongue and bulging out his eyes!

    Betty Garrett - 91 - died Saturday of an aortic aneurysm

    I most remember her for her role on Laverne and Shirley (Edna Babish), but she played along side greats like Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly in On The Town.

    Aw, I'm sorry to hear about Betty Garrett. Of course, I watched her in Laverne and Shirley, but On the Town has always been one of my favorites. She and Jules Munshin were fabulous together in that movie.

    I remember her as Irene Lorenzo in All In The Family. She and her husband, Frank, worked Archie's last nerve. To this day, I remain an All In The Family fanatic.

    I loved her on both shows and, of course, in On the Town.
    Looks like she had a good long run, though.
