A great shot of the actor best known as the human b'day gift from the movie version of The Boys in the Band (1970), in which he recreated his stage performance. He died of AIDS in 1986. Thanks to Michael Michaud for the shot.

Comedy Legend Anne Meara Dies @ 85 Comments (0)

159184422September 20, 1929—May 23, 2015

13005-young-jerry-stiller-anne-mearaThe idea of how a person is remembered came up for me today because I was updating ExtraTV.com (a weekend gig) and because it's an entertainment site, my way into the story of the deaths of John and Alicia Nash was via Russell Crowe and the A Beautiful Mind movie. Obviously, if I was doing a New York Times obit or a local New Jersey newspaper obit, that connection would be prominently mentioned, but not the sole purpose for reporting it. Some readers were annoyed that a photo of Crowe from the film was used to promote my post.

Which I think is ridiculously misplaced offense, because without their having been portrayed by Crowe and Jennifer Connelly, their deaths would have no place on an entertainment site at all.

But in general, the concept of how one is remembered comes up again with Anne Meara, who died today at the age of 85. Many outlets will report that Ben Stiller's mom died, or that one half of the comedy team Stiller & Meara died. She was both of those things, and it's perfectly acceptable that she was primarily one or the other to a portion of the population.

Screen Shot 2015-05-24 at 10.41.48 PMMeara's red hair was her signature.

It's not an insult to be remembered for specific things (especially several of them); it's a gift, an honor.

But along with being Ben Stiller's mom and Jerry Stiller's straight woman, Meara was a truly gifted actress with a too commonly untapped range. She excelled in live theater (she won an Obie 60 years ago, was Tony-nominated), gave one of my favorite dramatic performances on film in the '90s in the 1996 movie The Daytrippers and was able to enhance almost any throwaway TV guest appearance, of which she made many.

There was a truly funny brashness, an intellect that made her dumb-bunny characters sassily wise and a noteworthy sense of timing that made her funnier than many of her peers.

A real loss.

People Will Talk: A Q&A With Some Silent Era Survivors Comments (0)

The Guardian gets it right in interviewing Diana Serra Cary, once known as Baby Peggy, calling her the last silent movie star. She truly is the last human being on earth who knew inarguable stardom in the Silent Era. (She's among the last dozen known to still be alive who ever appeared in a silent film.)

As hot as the actors are, I feel like the official poster for Magic Mike XXL does them few favors. Bomer looks good, but has looked hotter in candid photos, and Tatum has a weird neck-to-arm ratio. But I'll still come again July 1.

Until then, you've got Chocolate City:
