R.I.P. x Three

The last few days have been hard on the movie industry.  First we lost the esteemed editor Sally Menke who has cut all of Quentin Tarantino’s movies since “Reservoir Dogs“.  She was only 56 and seems to have died of heat exposure while hiking.

Then we lost Arthur Penn, the genius director of “Miracle Worker” and “Bonnie & Clyde“.

And this morning Tony Curtis died.  There weren’t many movies he starred in that I didn’t appreciate his work.  He was great in everything from “Defiant Ones” and “Sweet Smell of Success” to “The Boston Strangler” and “Some Like It Hot.”

A tough week.
