It seems like a lot of notable people in the field of entertainment in 2014. As they do every year, the folks at Turner Classic Movies put together an “In Memoriam” reel in honor of those in front of and and behind the camera….and, inevitably, a notable person died after this compilation was put together, that person being Luise Rainer, who died on December 30th at the age of 104. UPDATE: Actor Edward Herrmann died on December 31st at the age of 71.
Those who stand out immediately in my mind include James Garner, Sid Caesar, Mickey Rooney, Shirley Temple, Joan Rivers and, most of all, Robin Williams. His death is going to hurt for a long time to come.
