I heard of his passing while driving Mom back from her Doctor’s appointment. She’s older than him by a couple of years and a big fan. I flinch when we’re together and the media announce the death of a celebrity, so many are younger than she. I taught an old girl friend’s cockatoo to whistle the theme song from his show. I began to dread the dawn shortly afterwards.
I highly recommend you see his best film, “A Face In The Crowd”. Modern cynicism has never been better portrayed.
