Another Jessica Walter tribute. I had forgotten her husband had recently passed until I saw it in the obits.

I grew up with Beverly Cleary's books. What a legacy.

Larry McMurtry, too, goes without saying. I saw the director's cut of Peter Bogdanovich's Texasville, his and McMurtry's sequel to The Last Picture Show, recently - it is strange, but better than it has any right to be. It's very clearly the product of McMurtry's singular voice. You could never mistake it for generic workproduct.


Tavernier gave me one of the first films I ever saw at the Film Forum when I first moved to NYC - Coup de Torchon, a Jim Thompson noir adaptation transplanted to West Africa with Isabelle Huppert. Brilliant. I didn't dig into him enough in years since but I've always wanted to.

It seems like Ms. Charles touched so many lives, IRL and across the airwaves. Hopefully, her loved ones can be there to help and take care of her mother and each other. So sad. R.I.P.
