With thanks to Michael Michaud: The widow of Jack Albertson, Wallace Thomson Albertson, died earlier this year. Though her death did not attract a lot of attention, Michaud points out that she was a tireless and early supporter of gay rights and AIDS awareness. RIP.

Oldest Filmmaker Dies @ 106 Comments (0)

The world's oldest active filmmaker, Portugal's Manoel de Oliveira, died earlier this month at the beyond-ripe old age of 106. He was the oldest person on my list of oldest entertainment-biz figures.

He was one of the very last actors and absolutely the last director of the silent era.

Another long-time director, TV's Richard L. Bare, also just died—at 101. I met him at this event, where he was celebrated.

STILL ALICE Co-Director Richard Glatzer Dies @ 63 Comments (0)

AFI-stillalice-premiere

RIP Richard Glatzer, co-director of Still Alice (2014), the film that helped Julianne Moore win her first Oscar of many. Glatzer and his husband, Wash Westmoreland, had teamed up on The Fluffer (2001), Quinceanera (2005) and The Last of Robin Hood (2013), and Glatzer had directed the 1993 film Grief, fondly remembered for great performances by Jackie Beat and Carlton Wilborn. 

Glatzer had battled ALS.

Check out this sweet post about Glatzer, who from what I've heard was someone everybody loved.
