Jackie Cooper: 1922 - 2011

I used to think Jackie Cooper and Jackie Coogan were the same person. I would tell people the kid from Chaplin's The Kid grew up to be Clark Kent's boss. I learned at some point that they were two different people, and that the kid from Chaplin's The Kid grew up to play Fester Addams. I decided Coogan had been the child star, and that Cooper must have been grabbed off the street for his interesting face and made to try out for Perry White after multiple casting calls had turned up no one suited to the role. He was perfect, of course, and was hired on the spot.

Jane Russell brought glam to the party

It may have been her curvaceous looks that brought Jane Russell to the attention of audiences but it was her devilish charm that kept her in their minds. A siren of the screen in the 1940s and 50s, the dark brunette Russell captivated mens' minds and commanded their eyes as she pushed the envelope for what was considered going too far with on-screen sexuality. And while her curves and come-hither eyes certainly helped play a substantial part in presenting that temptress image, it was also in the way that Russell chose to use her good looks in her acting that made her a lasting presence on the screen.

Composer John Barry: 1933 - 2011

In 1962 the producers of a spy movie needed help. The man who they had hired to write the score for their movie was struggling in finding the music for it. Reaching out for assistance, they were turned to a career musician who was employed conducting the orchestras for the background music heard on singers under the EMI recording label. That man was John Barry, and the movie that went on to score became the first James Bond movie, Dr. No. And so began the history of one of modern day cinema's greatest composers of film scores.

Doctor Who's David Tennant to marry another Doctor Who's daughter

If you're a sci-fi fan in Britain you can forget about that royal wedding talk you've been hearing. For people that know what a TARDIS is, the big social event of the coming year happens to be the marriage between David Tennant, the actor who played the tenth incarnation of The Doctor on Doctor Who, and Georgia Moffett, the real-life daughter of Peter Davison, the actor who played the fifth incarnation of The Doctor.

Put a different way: imagine if Mark Hamill from Star Wars had a daughter and she was marrying Hayden Christensen, the kid that played Hamill's father in the Star Wars prequels. Is your mind boggled yet?

The great life of Blake Edwards

Today director/screenwriter Blake Edwards died at the age of 88. To those born in the 1980s and upward Edwards is likely a name that won't resonate with their generation, but for the older ones that came of age in the 1960s to the beginnings of the '80s, his movies are remembered. 10 with Bo Derek and Dudley Moore. Victor/Victoria with Julie Andrews and which was nominated for a Best Screenplay Oscar. The creator of The Pink Panther and its hapless hero, Inspector Clouseau. The director of Breakfast at Tiffany's, which gave us the iconic image of a black-gloved Audrey Hepburn holding her fashionably long cigarette holder.

Leslie Nielsen: Two careers in one lifetime

As the celebrity columnists, entertainment reporters and bloggers of media write their obituaries of actor Leslie Nielsen, there are two roles being mentioned in nearly all of their pieces: his turn as the Captain of the Earth starship that ventured to the Forbidden Planet in 1956, and his play as a straight, no-nonsense doctor delivering double-meaning lines in 1980's Airplane! And here I am, writing my own piece about the death of Nielsen and agreeing with the others in my chosen profession: these were the two most important roles in Leslie Nielsen's life. Depending upon which side of the generational gulf that you were born into, your own mental picture of who Leslie Nielsen was as a leading man can be about as widely different as it can get.
