RIP Suave, Sexy Louis Jourdan Comments (0)

Jourdan

One of France's last Golden Age stars, Louis Jourdan—so memorable in Gigi (1958)—has died at the ripe old age of 93 in Beverly Hills.

Faye-Dunaway

Jourdan's first film work was in 1939, his last in 1992. In-between, he made for a dashing Bond villain in a not-so-great film from that enduring series, Octopussy (1983). In 1986, he made his final TV appearance, in the campy Faye Dunaway vehicle Beverly Hills Madam (image above).

Film Noir Star Lizabeth Scott Dies @ 92 Comments (0)

Lizabeth-Scott-colorSeptember 29, 1922—January 31, 2015

I've blogged about Lizabeth Scott more than once; she's somewhat of a fixation of mine, and was one of the last film noir stars left—now, she has passed away from congestive heart failure at 92.

1957_confidential_kayeThe type of stuff Confidential declassified

Lizabeth-ScottScott fascinated me as a strong actress, and one who was about to be outed as a lesbian by Confidential and who preemptively sued the magazine rather than pay them off, as many stars (or their studios) did in those days.

She was also the rumored squeeze of Hal Wallis, a man whose legacy she helped maintain in her later years via select interviews and appearances.

 

She acted until the early '70s, then mostly faded from view.

LizabethScott's public appearances were few and far between.

I received a lovely autograph from Scott in 2012, and she sent it within a few days:

Keep reading for a great interview with Scott...

Bobbi-Kristina

To die in a tub like your mom did three years later—so tragic. But it appears that the initial report of Bobbi Kristina being in a coma was one of those optimistic announcements that really meant to expect grim news a few days later: She is reportedly brain-dead.
