Fred Ward was an American actor known for parts in films such as Miami Blues (1990), a film I enjoyed immensely and Tremors (1990), which is nearly as good as Miami Blues.
Jerzy Trela was a Polish actor. He was Billaud-Varenne in Danton (1983).
This happened in 2021 but I only just found out, while I was researching the hippie film Escalation of the previous dead person.
Richard Rush was an American film director known for films such as Psych-Out (1968).
Catherine Spaak was a French actress and singer, known for her work in Italian sex comedies such as The Libertine (1968).
Michel Bouquet was a French actor known for appearances in such films as The Toy (1976) in which he plays a caricature of a ruthless business tycoon.
In the film, the spoiled son of the business magnate asks for a human as a plaything.
In the scene above, the father enters a house and makes an exuberant offer to buy the house if its owners pack their bags ans leave immediately.
Kathy Lamkin (1947 – 2022) was an American actress known for such parts as the trailer park lady in No Country for Old Men (2007).
Lars Bloch was a Danish actor and producer known for his appearances in such films as A Stranger in Town (1967), the first of a series of three “Man with No Name” copycat films.
Two actors died. Both played a role in paracinema.
The first is the Canadian actor Lawrence Dane (1937-2022) who is best-known for his part in Scanners (1981), the Cronenberg film forever famous for its exploding head scene.
The second is the Italian actor Gianni Cavina best-known for his parts in The House with Laughing Windows (1976) and Traffic Jam (1979).
Traffic Jam is reminiscent of the eight minute traffic jam scene in Weekend by Truffaut which is based on the infinitely more interesting short story “La autopista del sur” by Julio Cortázar.
William Hurt was an American actor known for his parts in Ken Russell’s drug epos Altered States (1980), the gay epic Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985), the cyberpunk classic Dark City (1998) and Cronenberg’s A History of Violence (2005).
Hurt’s death has made me curious about Dark City, which I should have seen already but I have not.
Roger Graef was an American-born British documentary filmmaker known for such films as One of Them is Brett (1965) and Why Save Florence? (1968).
