Movie Meltdown - Episode 261
In continuing our "People Who Died.. Died" series that we started last year, we take a look at the actors and performers who passed away in 2013. And along the way we realize not only how much we learn about people after they pass away, but also how quickly extremly famous people tend to be forgotten with the passage of time.
And as celebrity death completely saturates mainstream media, we also mention... James Dean, Get Shory, Joyride, It Started With Eve, the desert makes you orange, Easy Rider, It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World, growing a sense of humor, Bottle Rocket, Olivia de Havilland, C.H.U.D., Smokey and the Bandit, My Boyfriend's Back, Giant, David Carradine, Five Easy Pieces, The Man Who Wasn't There, aquamusicals, The Sting, 3:10 to Yuma, David Mamet, Billy Jack, East of Eden, Smoke, The Sound of Music, Lawrence of Arabia, Where the Wild Things Are, Clue, Out of Sight, Synecdoche, New York, The Hunger Games, Enter the Dragon, Intolerable Cruelty, beach movies, Johnny Weissmuller, I think it's kind of a testament to, I guess apparently, how awesome a dude he was, Grey Gardens, that's the way to go out... in the middle of jack-o-lanerns, Last Picture Show, Jack Ryan, The Royal Tenenbaums, Deep Throat, feel free to reference us, for all your wrong information, Blue in the Face, Twister, the adoption laws in Illinois, In the Loop, Varsity Blues, Back to the Beach, Being There, Joe the dog, Nashville, The Mexican, Morrissey, team trivia, being a one-woman genre, Get Crazy, Cisco Pike, riding in cars with celebrities, Running Scared, tanning booths, Three Smart Girls, First Love, and Spring Parade, angily yelling at your adopted parents, Private Benjamin, a robot dog, running for President twice... in two different parites, Batman: The Animated Series, Scent of a Woman, True Romance, Timeline, creating your own sub-genre, Jeepers Creepers, 26 years of sobriety and that's the most amazing extrapolation of that series of events.
