https://variety.com/2019/film/obitua...03124265/-Dick Miller, a prolific screen actor best known for his role as Murray Futterman in the 1984 classic horror film “Gremlins,” has died. He was 90.

With a career spanning more than 60 years, Miller has made hundreds of on screen appearances, beginning in the 1950s with legendary director and producer Roger Corman. It was then that he starred as Walter Paisley – a character the actor would reprise throughout his career – in the cult classic “A Bucket of Blood,” before going on to land roles on projects such as “The ‘Burbs,” “Fame” and “The Terminator.”

Aww. If I had seen this earlier I would have popped in one of the many movies I have of his. Always loved him in anything he did and he did a lot. Prolific is an understatement with that guy.

As Trey would probably confirm, she was also a prolific actress in westerns, both film and TV. In one excellent movie, Bend of the River, she coincidentally played sister to Lori Nelson, who ended up the leading lady in Revenge of the Creature!

Writer of romance novels Rosamunde Pilcher passed away this week. While she was a big deal in Germany thanks to a metric ton of tv movies based on her work, I absolutely wasn't her target audience. Nevertheless, even I am impressed by a bibliography of over 110 novels that she wrote in her lifetime, which had combined sales of over 60 million copies.
