Passages: George A. Romero and Martin Landau

Sad news has arrived today on two famous names in entertainment, shocking fans of both.

The first, writer-director George A. Romero, of Night of the Living Dead fame, has passed away today at age 77 of lung cancer. I never had the opportunity to meet Mr. Romero, but I know a few fans who did and who cherish the memory.


Above, yours truly with Martin Landau in 2013.

The second subject of sad news, but one with whom I did meet is actor Martin Landau, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton's Ed Wood. He passed away yesterday of "unexpected complications" at the UCLA Medical Center at age 89. I had the pleasure of meeting Landau at the 2013 Monsterpalooza show in Burbank. I found him to be a very friendly and gracious.

Both will be sorely missed, but their work will live on.
