Actress Sylvia Miles died. She was 94. I found her through the book Cult Movie Stars (1991) which I bought the year it came out and read from cover to cover. It was the time of video rental stores and I scoured Antwerp looking for old films. So I saw a handful of Miles’ films including Heat (1972). The book Cult Movie Stars describes her as a “quirky, funny, busty blonde New York character actress.”
Dick Miller was an American actor (Gremlins, The Little Shop of Horrors, Death Race 2000) known for his films with Roger Corman. He later appeared in the films of directors who began their careers with Corman, including James Cameron and Joe Dante.
He was, in the words of Cult Movie Stars (1991) a “scene-stealer in low-budget horror films”.
Above is the enormously amusing film The Little Shop of Horrors (1960, above) in which Miller plays a carnation-eating (“I’m crazy about kosher flowers”) regular customer of the florist in which the film is set.
Minute 34:48 has Jack Nicholson come in as a masochistic client to the dentist. That scene was later done by  with Steve Martin as the dentist and Bill Murray as the client.
I’ve seen quite some films with mister Miller, all entertaining, unassuming and unpretentious.
