• 02/06 Peter Breck (age 82), who played Mooney in the movie in episode 415- THE BEATNIKS and Steve Curan in the movie in episode 106- THE CRAWLING HAND.


Perhaps the single greatest performance in MST3K history.

True enough. He didn't just do contemporary films, but period pieces as well (specifically, the flashback scenes in The Touch of Satan.

Also, he was amazing with dialects. They called him the "Man of a Thousand Voices." Among other things, he helped Forest Whitaker to nail that Ugandan dialect in his Oscar-winning role in The Last King of Scotland.

FTFA: 04/29 Joel Goldsmith (age 54), who composed the musical score for the movie in episode 706- LASERBLAST.

I had to Wiki it, but he is indeed the son of Jerry Goldsmith. Also, he's responsible for scoring almost the entirety of Stargate on television.

Easton wrote the screenplay for "Giant Spider Invasion"? I thought Rebane did that.

Very serious!

Check out the obituary that Murphyr posted.

He was probably a convincing redneck because he knew what to do with those dialects.

I didn't know this either until I just checked it out.

Say what you will, but the man was PROLIFIC.

I'm in SW Missouri & IIRC Normie last lived in Lead Hill, Arkansas so he wasn't too far away. Wasn't unusual to see him pop up at regional car shows. His hand carved shift knobs are quite prized by gearhead collectors. I never sprung for one but I do have a signed picture of a copy of his LIFE magazine cover. :)
Happy New Year right back TMLO. There's a reason you're highlighted in green!

He and my dad knew each other from car shows, I guess. He came to my parent's Christmas parties when we were kids. He claimed to be one of the whistlers on the "Good, the Bad and the Ugly" theme. Dunno if it was true or not, but he whistled that damn song all the time.

Okay, THAT'S boss.

Ah, okay.

That's actually pretty boss. The car shows and whatnot, I mean. I'm not really a car buff by any stretch of the imagination, but I always dig those shows for some reason.

Happy New Year to you, too, and thanks for the kind words - you're favorited as well!
