Iconic Film, Theater & Film Director/Comic Writer Mike Nichols Dies @ 83 Comments (0)

Mike-NicholsNovember 6, 1931—November 19, 2014

Mike Nichols, the acclaimed director of such film classics as Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) and The Graduate (1967), as well as one half of the legendary comedy duo of Nicolas & May with Elaine May (b. April 21, 1932) in the '50s and '60s, has died at 83. He'd been married since 1988 to journalist Diane Sawyer (b. December 22, 1945).

Nichols won the Oscar for The Graduate, only his second film, and delivered many other memorable movies as diverse as Catch-22 (1970), Carnal Knowledge (1971), Gilda Live (1980), Silkwood (1983), Postcards from the Edge (1990), The Birdcage (1996) and his last film, Charlie Wilson's War (2007).

Movies

In 2001, he brought the highly regarded play Wit to TV, and three years later directed an ambitious Angels in America adaptation for HBO.

Nichols & May were known for their improvisational comedy, which led them to the successful Broadway show An Evening with Mike Nichols and Elaine May. They split, both creatively and personally, but later buried the hatchet and teamed up on plays and films. (May wrote both The Birdcage and the Clinton parody Primary Colors.)

Nicholas was extremely active and frequently rewarded for his efforts in the theater, including directing enduring classics Barefoot in the Park (1963—his debut), The Odd Couple (1965), The Prisoner of Second Avenue (1971), Annie (1977), Hurlyburly (1984), Whoopi Goldberg's blank-titled one-woman show (1984) and the relatively recent runaway hit Spamalot (2005). His final work on Broadway was as the director of Betrayal in 2013, starring Daniel Craig and his wife Rachel Weisz.

Apparently, Nicholas had not been in ill health, but died suddenly of a heart attack. A major loss for the entertainment world.

The Chosen: CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE Creator Dies Comments (0)

Choose-Your-Own-Adventure

Raymond Almiran Montgomery, the man who invented the Choose Your Own Adventure book series in the late '70s, has died in his late seventies. Or, he is alive somewhere, Raymond-Montgomeryhaving successfully faked his own passing. Or, it is a hoax.

Unfortunately, I fear the first choice is the only correct one.

I'm in the process of finishing a memoir for spring publication and had just yesterday mentioned Choose Your Own Adventure. His books brought me a lot of joy.
