Telling a few people that Christopher Plummer has died, no one seemed to know him anymore, until I added : "He played Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music!"

Other roles he played were : Emperor Commodus (The Fall of the Roman Empire (1964)), Field Marshall Rommel (The Night of the Generals (1967)), King Oedipus (Oedipus the King (1967)), the Duke of Wellington (Waterloo (1970)),...

His final big role was not so long ago -- J. Paul Getty in All the Money in the World (2017), when Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey.

I had forgotten he played Commodus. It is one his best performances, although not historically accurate. Like a lot of other depictions - including Joaquin Phoenix - it seemed more like he was playing Caligula. Still, a great performance and he has one my favorite lines: "If you listen carefully, you will hear the gods laughing."

I had also forgotten he played Kipling in one of my favorite-movies-no-one-else-remembers: "The Man Who Would Be King". He's the second star from that film to have died recently, the other being Sean Connery. At least we still have Michael Caine.

I'm going to have 'The Minstrel Boy' stuck in my head for the rest of the day now!

It would be wrong for this site not to note the passing, at the age of 78, of Larry Flynt, publisher of Hustler and other fine magazines. A champion of free speech, Larry was prosecuted and sued numerous times, most notably by Jerry Falwell, who objected to a satirical piece in which the good Reverend was portrayed as having had sex with his mother in an outhouse. Although Larry sometimes lost in court, he generally won on appeal. He had been confined to a wheelchair since being shot in 1978 by a white supremacist offended by Hustler's showing inter-racial couples. I can't prove that CF wouldn't exist if not for Larry Flynt, but it's certainly possible.

For that interracial couple: you will often find them, but I had as man another problem with Butch from Butch and Peaches than being black.....
