    Antonio Inoki, a Japanese professional wrestling star turned politician, widely known for his match with Muhammad Ali and ties to North Korea, has died aged 79, after years of battling a rare disease, media reported on Saturday.

    Inoki became one of the biggest names in Japan's pro-wrestling's circuit in the 1960s. His fame went global in 1976 when he had a mixed martial arts match with boxing legend Muhammad Ali, billed as "the bout of the century".

      Sacheen Littlefeather
      , the activist for Native Americans who declined Marlon Brando’s Oscar for “The Godfather” on his behalf at the 1973 Academy Awards, died Sunday at 75, the Academy of Motion Pictures said. She had been suffering from breast cancer.

      In June, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences apologized to Littlefeather for her treatment at the Oscars that night. Littlefeather attended an in-person presentation of the apology at the Academy Museum on Sept. 17.

      At the Oscars, she was only given 60 seconds to read her speech on Native American rights, and was then escorted off the stage with audience members booing.

      “He very regretfully cannot accept this very generous award,” Littlefeather said to the Academy Awards audience in . “And the reasons for this being are the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry… and on television in movie re-runs, and also with recent happenings at Wounded Knee.”

        Loretta Lynn, the Kentucky coal miner’s daughter whose frank songs about life and love as a woman in Appalachia pulled her out of poverty and made her a pillar of country music, has died. She was 90.

        In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Lynn’s family said she died Tuesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

        “Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home in her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills,” the family said in a statement. They asked for privacy as they grieve and said a memorial will be announced later.

        Lynn already had four children before launching her career in the early 1960s, and her songs reflected her pride in her rural Kentucky background.

          Always loved Loretta. She's my favorite female country star (and her best friend was probably my second). I particularly have fond memories of listening to my grandparents' tape of LL and Conway Twitty's best hits as a duo. This one seems always relevant:

              Jim Redmond, the father who rushed to help his son in one of the Olympic Games' most memorable and inspirational moments, died at age 81 on Sunday, according to the British Olympic Association (BOA).

              The moment the BOA said will "never be forgotten" happened at the 1992 Barcelona Games where British runner Derek Redmond posted the fastest time in his heat in the 400m. He was a medal favorite and had already established himself as one of Britain's best athletes. But 15 seconds into the semifinal race, he pulled his hamstring and fell to the track.

              Shortly after he brushed off officials and began heavily limping around the track toward the finish line, a man without a track credential appeared on the TV screen of the race. It was Derek's father, Jim, who had rushed down the stadium stairs, dodged officials and gone straight to his son.

                    The crime writer Peter Robinson has died aged 72, his publisher has announced.

                    The Yorkshire-born author died suddenly on the 4 October after a brief illness, publisher Hodder & Stoughton said. Robinson was best known for his novels featuring Inspector Banks, the first of which was published 35 years ago. The books were adapted into the TV drama series DCI Banks which ran between 2010 and 2016, and starred Stephen Tompkinson in the titular role.


                    A total of 8.75m books were sold by Robinson’s UK publishers Hodder & Stoughton and Pan Macmillan during his lifetime, and the books have been translated into 19 different languages. His editor at Hodder, Carolyn Mays, said: “Peter was a combination of all the best bits of his detective Alan Banks – thoughtful and passionate about justice, he had fine taste and a totally down to earth view of the world.”

                      Nikki Finke, the veteran entertainment journalist who founded Deadline in 2006 and helped grow it into a major player among Hollywood trades, died Sunday morning in Boca Raton, FL after a prolonged illness. She was 68.

                      The famously reclusive Finke founded her site as Deadline Hollywood Daily, the 24/7 Internet version of her long-running print column “Deadline Hollywood” for LA Weekly. She posted firsthand accounts of how she saw the entertainment business and was unfazed about dressing down its biggest players. Her often biting, acerbic posts called out wrongdoing and wrongdoers as she saw fit — making her a hero to many assistants and below-the-liners while irking many in the C-suites who were not used to anything less than praise.

                        Charles Fuller, the pioneering Philadelphia playwright who received a Pulitzer Prize, a Tony Award and an Oscar nomination for A Soldier’s Play, has died. He was 83.

                        Fuller, who also explored racism and the Black experience with his earlier plays The Brownsville Raid and Zooman and the Sign, died Monday at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, his son, David, told The Hollywood Reporter.

                        A Soldier’s Play tells the story of the racially charged investigation by a Black captain for the murder of a Black sergeant on a segregated U.S. Army base in Jim Crow Louisiana in 1944.

                          Angela Lansbury, the London-born actress who for seven decades brought a commanding, ladylike presence to stage, screen and television — especially over the 12 years she played dauntless mystery novelist Jessica Fletcher on CBS' Murder, She Wrote — has died. She was 96.

                          "The children of Dame Angela Lansbury are sad to announce that their mother died peacefully in her sleep at home in Los Angeles at 1:30 a.m. today, Tuesday, October 11, 2022, just five days shy of her 97th birthday," her family says in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.

                          "In addition to her three children, Anthony, Deirdre and David, she is survived by three grandchildren, Peter, Katherine and Ian, plus five great grandchildren and her brother, producer Edgar Lansbury," the statement adds. "She was proceeded in death by her husband of 53 years, Peter Shaw. A private family ceremony will be held at a date to be determined."

                            Milwaukee musician Mike Schank, best known as the co-star of the 1999 documentary American Movie, has died. A friend confirms to Milwaukee Record that Schank “passed away early this morning in his mother’s arms.” He was 56 years old.

                            Along with the main subject of American Movie, Milwaukee filmmaker Mark Borchardt, Schank became a breakout star in the early ’00s. Among numerous national media appearances, he played himself in a 2006 episode of Family Guy, and appeared in the 2001 Todd Solondz film Storytelling. But it was his presence in the Chris Smith-directed, Sundance Film Festival-winning American Movie that solidified Schank as a unique character, a loyal and laid-back pal, and a talented guitarist. He could also scream like no one’s business.
