Re. the later-life part of her career, who could forget her immortal performance as Captain Stubing's Aunt Hilly in episode 4.23 of The Love Boat? Alas, no "the whole male complement of the crew wears chest-baring puffy shirts in homage to Captain Blood" -- that would've been a really fun way to honor the very special guest star, but c'mon, we're talking about The Love Boat, serious hard-hitting drama, folks.

He actually showed some halfway decent martial arts skills in ETD. Also enjoyable as evil-land-baron Robert Duvall's quarry in the Clint Eastwood western Joe Kidd.

Herman Cain, Former GOP Presidential Candidate, Dies From COVID-19

Quote:
Employees of Cain said they do not know where he contracted the coronavirus. He attended President Trump's rally in Tulsa, Okla., in late June and was photographed in the arena without a mask.

LOL, not sure if "Cacoon" was a typo, but it fits. :) I enjoyed seeing him do a slightly different turn in John Carpenter's excellent remake of The Thing. The blood-testing scene in that film is an all-time jump-out-of-your-seat classic of suspense.

Only loosely connected, but this quote from Beverly Hills Cop is a classic:

"Tell Victor that Ramon - -the fella he met about a week ago? - - tell him that Ramon went to the clinic today, and I found out that I have, um, herpes simplex 10, and I think Victor should go check himself out with his physician to make sure everything is fine before things start falling off on the man."

LOL - "things falling offa da man" was the theme of my yesterday-post in the "Hmmmm..." thread. BTW, the actor who played Victor in the above film, in his younger days, played on of the thug-cops in Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange. Some guys just "give good heavy."

(Pre-Perry Mason Raymod Burr was also such a one. In casting the latter TV show, the producers originally intended 60s-SciFi-good-guy Bill Hopper to play Mason and Burr to play his not-afraid-to-put-the-muscle-on-suspects-and-reluctant-witnesses private-detective pal Paul Drake. In early screen tests they quickly realized their mistake, and the rest is TV history.)

It is supposed to be Cocoon. Sorry.

I had forgotten about The Thing from the early 1980's. "Dr. Blair" was his character. A good scene is where MacReady (Kurt Russell) goes out to the tool-shed to check on Blair after they lock him inside. He talks to Blair through a small opening in the door. Blair is eating something from a can. Just to the left, a hangman's noose is clearly visible.
