Dickie Moore, one of Hollywood's most adorable child actors, one whose work began in the Silent Era, has died at 89, just two days shy of his 90th birthday.

Moore was noted for his cherubic appearance and heartfelt performances in some of the cinema's most important works, as well as opposite many of the greatest stars of all time, including John Barrymore, Spencer Tracy and—indelibly—Marlene Dietrich. He played Dietrich's son in Blonde Venus (1932), the Josef von Sternberg classic.

Tumblr_n8yu18FQ4i1qe4ru4o1_500Moore's work with Dietrich was outstanding.

After kissing Shirley Temple when both had graduated, unsuccessfully, to young-adult roles, Moore eventually retired from acting, settling into a 40-plus-year career as the president of his own PR company.

In 1988, Moore met and married enduring silver-screen leading lady Jane Powell, to whom he remained married at the time of his death.

Dickie-MooreMoore, Moore, Moore, Moore!

Moore's experience in films toward the end of the Silent Era lent him the distinction of being one of the world's last surviving veterans of pre-talkie movies. With the death of fellow Our Gang cast member Jean Darling and now Moore's passing, there are 11 human beings on earth confirmed to have appeared in a pre-talkies silent movie, all of them between the ages of 90 and 101.


I was thrilled to receive Moore's autograph within the past few years.

Dietrich was still alive when Joan Collins, for some reason, sort of sang “The Boys in the Back Room” on an episode of Dynasty, but I'm sure she still managed to roll over in her grave...

Maximilian Schell Dies At 83 Comments (0)

Maximilian_Schell_-_1970-1Sexy Schell was an actor, musician and director.

MarleneOscar-winning actor Maximilian Schell has died at 83. The actor was brilliant in Judgment at Nuremberg, was a musician and eventually became a director.

In spite of his many acting accomplishments, Schell, for me, will forever be the director of 1984's Marlene, an absolutely original and dazzlingly intimate documentary in which Dietrich speaks candidly but is never seen. It was nominated for an Oscar and won many awards. The reclusive Dietrich was, at the time, the same age as Schell at his death.

He was, of course, on my list of great stars past 80.
