REST IN PEACE
Bob Clark, writer-director of A Christmas Story and Porky's, was killed along with his son early Wednesday morning on Pacific Coast Highway when a drunk driver verved into his lane and hit Mr. Clark's car head-on.
Donald Hamilton, author of the hardboiled Matt Helm novels which several were made into very lame Dean Martin movies, passed away in Sweden. He was 90. Mr. Hamilton also wrote the novel, The Big Country, which became a William Wyler film starring Gregory Peck and Charlton Heston.
Rest in peace, gentlemen.
