RIP Pierre Cardin (1922 – 2020)
Pierre Cardin was a French fashion designer, but for the moment all I can say of him is that from 2001 to 2020 he was the owner of the castle of Marquis de Sade depicted above.
RIP Carl Reiner (1922 – 2020)
Carl Reiner was an American comedian, actor, director, screenwriter, and publisher.
I have fond memories of the highly enjoyable films he directed starring Steve Martin in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
I think of The Jerk (1979), Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid (1982) and The Man with Two Brains (1983).
