In between, we lost a shark hunter, an ape-fighting guerrilla, a pinup icon, a dirty word demystifier, a Hedy Lamarr (that's HEDLEY), a Ghost World convenience store clerk, a dysdinotopia visionary, a Tootsie director, a King of Comedy, a set of legs that just kept on going, a Shady Pines escapee, a fork-tongued fashion cop, the Voice of God himself, a Dolemite-waiter, and Paul Newman. Paul Fucking Newman, people. He's gone.
We've compiled an In Memoriam montage for you, sensitively set to Kenny Loggins's electrifying Top Gun soundtrack smash, "Highway to the Danger Zone." Here's hoping they're all performing acrobatic maneuvers through the gates of Heaven, with G-d as their wingman.
Rudy Ray Moore
(And a very special, "oops we left her out of the montage" mention to Eartha Kitt.)
