Anyone who remembers Bonnie and Clyde will remember this guy. The last paragraph might be of interest to anyone who ever listened to and enjoyed Traffic, too.

Start out as a star at a young age, work as a cocktail waitress later in life, five marriages, some of these folks just don't do well:

Sue Lyon, the actress who was forever tied to her teenage portrayal of the title role in 1962s Lolita, died Dec. 26 in Los Angeles. She was 73.
The news was first reported by the New York Times, and no cause of death was immediately given. She was 73.
How did they ever make a movie of Lolita, asked the ads for the film, director Stanley Kubricks adaptation of Vladimir Nabokovs controversial novel about a man in his 40s who becomes obsessed with a young girl. James Mason, Peter Sellers and Shelley Winters also starred in the film.

Buck Henry, known for The Graduate and Saturday Night Live, among other things. Sure miss Uke keeping us up to date on who's passed on, even though he once accused me, yep, me, of being morbid.

Buck Henry, who co-wrote the screenplay for the classic 1967 film The Graduate, co-directed 1978's Heaven Can Wait, and made regular appearances as a guest host on Saturday Night Live in the show's early years, has died. He was 89.

Henry died Wednesday in Los Angeles following a heart attack. Reports of his death were confirmed to NPR by a longtime friend.

The son of a silent film star, Henry also co-created the TV show Get Smart with Mel Brooks. Henry appeared on dozens of television shows, including Saturday Night Live during the show's early days. Henry and Calder Willingham co-wrote the screenplay for the 1967 film The Graduate. The movie is based on the novel by Charles Webb and stars Anne Bancroft as a bored housewife who seduces a much younger paramour, Benjamin Braddock, played by Dustin Hoffman.

Kirk Douglas

Kirk Douglas, known as one of the most beloved tough guys in Hollywood history on screen and a defender of blacklisted artists off screen, died Wednesday at age 103.(né Issur Danielovitch; December 9, 1916 February 5, 2020) was an American actor, producer, director, and author. After an impoverished childhood with immigrant parents and six sisters, he made his film debut in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946) with Barbara Stanwyck. Douglas soon developed into a leading box-office star throughout the 1950s, known for serious dramas, including westerns and war movies. During his career, he appeared in more than 90 movies. Douglas was known for his explosive acting style, which he displayed as a criminal defense attorney in Town Without Pity (1961).

 "I've known Kirk Douglas personally and appreciate his friendship," President Jimmy Carter said while awarding Douglas the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in 1981. "But more than that, I have known how dedicated he is to using his talent as an actor and a director and the esteem with which he's held by his own people in spreading the good news about this country and explaining our purposes, our ideals, our commitments, and our achievements, our hopes, and our dreams to people around the world."

Roger Kahn has died. I remember reading "The Boys of Summer", way back when it first came out, way back when.

MAMARONECK, N.Y. Roger Kahn, the writer who wove memoir and baseball and touched millions of readers through his romantic account of the Brooklyn Dodgers in The Boys of Summer, has died. He was 92.

Son Gordon Kahn said his father died Thursday at a nursing facility in Mamaroneck.

The author of 20 books and hundreds of articles, Kahn was best known for the 1972 best-seller that looked at his relationship with his father through their shared love of the Dodgers, an object of nostalgia for the many fans who mourned the teams move to Los Angeles after the 1957 season.

The "They Come in 3's" column I think was "spurred on" by Uke. Last Uke post 10/17/19 here on this topic.
Then he was one of "The 3's" later.
