    If you mean the one with Lesley Ann Warren as Cinderella, yes she was. That was 1965, and it had a great cast.

    I LOVED her in that movie! I thought she was so beautiful. I must have watched it at least 100 times as a kid.

    Last night on some TV show, I think it may have been Rock Center, they mentioned his passing while playing Smoke on the Water in the background. I don't think there's anyone, old or young, who isn't familiar with that song. It made me sad.
    RIP Jon.

    Smoke On The Water is considered one of the most recognizable guitar riffs in Rock History.

    Tom Davis, Al Franken's former comedy partner has passed. He was only 59:

    While many of his credits were for writing, I remember him fondly from Trading Places, which I just happened to watch a few days ago.

    I remember Franken and Davis very well and always enjoyed their routines together.

    She may not be your typical 'celebrity', but she was famous . . . . and it was because of the good things she did.
