Godspeed to them both.

    A TRULY great photo as I was telling Jack a few hours ago. ;-) I only just now saw it last night in a fabulous video tribute, to him on YouTube. It is a shame that Mr. Brooker has passed as the last three-plus days here YouTube has been flooded with quite well made given the time & circumstances of his untimely/quickie passing.

    Over time his lovely wife that he leaves behind should give them a look---it can show her better hat he was VERY much so well-respected by he retro genre film loving & collecting community.

    I also love the one of hi & the late Steve Susskind as well--notice the tobacco pipe in Richard's hand--it is the same one mentioned in the '04 boxset commentary track. I believe he gave up smoking much later on in life, though. So nice to see these truly. WONDERFUL selection there Jack. Mad respect ...

  4. the top one is on the clm facebook! i knew u'd dig it when u saw it

  5. I loved Harold. He was the one who was most memorable for me.

    Yeah I always loved the late great Steve Susskind. Years ago as a young lad I saw him during Married With Children re-runs and I smiled, knowing immediately that it was him.

    Yeah him & his on screen wife were always my favorite post-credit victims that were adults/non-counsaler types from the early half of the franchise. :)
