As 2011 is quickly drawing to an end(with only 10 days left [!!!]),three more cult cinema celebrity personalities have recently passed away in the last few days,for here they are(in one final quick tribute to them)….
* Alberto de Mendoza: Eurpoean actor who starred in many genre films which included the likes of HORROR EXPRESS(as the long haired Paul Naschy looking possessed priest),LIZARD IN A WOMAN’S SKIN,THE PEOPLE WHO OWN THE DARK,RASPUTIN THE MAD MONK,PERVERSION STORY,CASE OF THE SCORPION’S TALE,and THE STRANGE CASE OF MRS. WARD. He passed away from respitory failure at the age of 88.
* Susan Gordon: the daughter of Bert I. Gordon who satrred in a handful of her father’s films which included the likes of ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE,TORMENTED,and PICTURE MOMMY DEAD. She passed away from cancer at age 62.
* Don Sharp: the British director of many 60s genre films that included the likes of WITCHCRAFT(with Lon Chaney Jr.),CURSE OF THE FLY,KISS OF THE VAMPIRE,DARK PLACES(with Joan Collins,Herbert Lom,and Christopher Lee),RASPUTIN THE MAD MONK,THE DEVIL SHIP PIRATES,and THE FACE OF FU MANCHU.
It’ll be interesting(and sad)if any more celebrity passings happen before the year ends(which hopefully won’t become a reality[even though it does tend to happen]).
