TCM shines again with their annual salute
TCM always does such a beautiful job with their end of the year "In Memoriam" videos. As you can see above, this year is no exception. An eye opener, thanks to some clever scene selections, is that three people in "Airplane" passed away in 2010--Peter Graves, Barbara Billingsley and Leslie Nielsen. Don't fret that Blake Edwards is missing, or that the year isn't over and another big name, Heaven forbid, might be left out. TCM usually updates these tributes and a clip from "Breakfast at Tiffany's" or "The Party" will likely appear before New Year's Eve. The haunting, well chosen music, "Headlights," is written and performed by Sophie Hunger.
