A great, first-person Skip E. Lowe story to memorialize the late interviewer to the stars, and to remind (or inform) you what he did best.

Skip E. Lowe, a former child actor who would go on to host a bizarre, wonderful cable-access interview show, has died at 85.
Lowe's Skip E. Lowe Looks at Hollywood launched in the late '70s and featured one-on-ones with some of the greatest stars of the Golden Age, friends and/or esteemed artists who recognized a respectful interrogator when they saw one.
Martin Short has admitted his character “Jiminy Glick” was based, in part, on Lowe.

Stage, TV and film actress/singer (let's face it—she could do anything) Polly Bergen has died at 84 following many years of poor health.
I think of her as a stage actress, but also remember her fondly in Cry-Baby (1990), the pretty darn good John Waters flick.
I had just talked about her with a friend. I hate when that happens.
What a list of incredible hits he wrote! One of my favorites is “Can't Take My Eyes Off of You”, especially the Pet Shop Boys version, after the jump...

You may not instantly recognize the name Denny Miller, but if you're a fan of '60s and '70s TV like Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch, the one-time “Tarzan”'s face and his physique almost have to ring a bell.
Miller, who played exactly the type Julie Brown so adores—big 'n' stupid— and who brought a child-like quality to his on-screen muscleman characters, had died at age 80 at his home in Las Vegas.
I got to meet him at a semi-recent autograph show. Nice man. Sorry to see Tarzan swing on out of here.
I'm sad to hear that Richard Kiel, the actor best known as “Jaws” in “James Bond” movies but also iconic for his appearance as the alien in the Twilight Zone episode “To Serve Man”, has died at 74, just three days before his birthday.
I think “To Serve Man” is the single best TZ ever. Judge for yourself:
More recently, he was a memorable part of that unforgettable, unofficial “Let's Have a Kiki” Scissor Sisters music video:
I just met Kiel in 2013. Video after the jump...
At the risk of turning this into the all-Joan Rivers site, I just have to link to this amazing Hollywood Reporter oral history of the late comedian's life and career. Featuring reminiscences by everyone who was anyone to her (and famous fans), it's a great read. My favorite? The time she was asked to whisper encouraging words into the ear of a woman in a coma and she chose to say:
“Wake up, you stupid bitch!”
