Two pieces of sad news.

Anne Francis

While at MGM, she co-starred in "Forbidden Planet," a big-budget, box-office hit that received an Oscar nomination for special effects.

Francis played Altaira, the alluring daughter of the scientist character played by Pidgeon: the two sole-surviving human inhabitants of the mysterious, technologically advanced planet.

Pete Postlethwaite

Tributes poured in today to Pete Postlethwaite, a true star of stage and screen despite a face like a clenched fist, once described by director Steven Spielberg as "probably the best actor in the world". He has died aged 64 after months of treatment for cancer.

I had no idea there were so many publicity stills from Forbidden Planet - thanks for the link, Papeetepatrick, those shots are delightful.

Distant Voices, Still Lives and In the Name of the Father are truly wonderful films, not as well known as they deserve to be (especially, perhaps, the former).
