Great US character actor Dick Miller has passed away;

Was just watching Gremlins 2 the other day (following up from Gremlins at christmas - one of the two must-see christmas films).  Always wonder about the character of Murray Futterman - his overt racism seems like it should be a set-up for something later in the film, but it never happens.  Don't remember him appearing in Terminator.  The article says he's the pawn shop owner, so I'm guessing that's where Arnie gets his gun?

The 'just what you see, pal' guy when Arnie asks for a plasma rifle in the something* watt range? I think you are right Sheridan, although I didn't think that was a pawn shop.

He's got one of those faces I always recognise, but can rarely remember where I saw him. I don't mean that in a negative way.

*40? I know, I know. Google is my friend.....

Sorry to hear that Sharky, my thoughts are with you and his family.

Blimey, another one of those guys who I thought had already gone.

He was the star of the Roger Corman film A Bucket of Blood. I've always been childishly proud that this was the first film I watched with my other half.

Regards,

Robin

Well, that's a bit of a shocker. 57? That's no age to go. Sorry to hear of his departure. I think he did a version of 'An Accidental Death of an Anarchist' which I listened to on Radio 4 extra excellent as I recall.

Sorry to hear about you friend Sharkie, sounds like our kind of guy...
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

I can never hear Roxanne by the Police without thinking of Jeremy's rendition...

Shocked and saddened by Jeremy Hardy's death - I like to think he's having a cup of tea with his old mate Linda Smith and listening to all the great Brexit gags she never got to do.

Awww heck. Hardy's head lice in a private school quip has entered my families popular lexicon. A great comedian and a lovely bloke by all accounts.
