    Oh, no. What a terrific, terrific actor. If you want to see him at his best, see "The Long Good Friday," it was a tour de force for him. I can't recommend it enough. Also, "Mona Lisa."

    Here's a clip of Roger Rabbit, sans effects/animation.



    Poster by his daugher, 11 life lessons he taught her. He sounds like he was a good guy.

    "They are his words; the words spoke so often to encourage, comfort and reassure. This isn’t general wisdom, rather advice that he tailor made just for me. I love you Dad."

    • 1) Laugh. There’s humour to be found everywhere, even your darkest days there’s something to have a joke about.


    • 2) Be yourself. If someone doesn't like you they’re either stupid, blind, or they’ve got bad taste. Accept who you are, you've got no one else to be.


    • 3) Be flamboyant, it’s who you are and always have been. Be eccentric and unique. Don’t try to adapt yourself to someone else’s view of normal.


    • 4) Don’t worry about other people’s opinions. Everyone’s a critic, but ultimately what they say only matters if you let it.


    • 5) Get angry, it’s ok to lose your temper now and then. If anger stays in, it turns to poison and makes you bitter and sad. Get angry, say your peace, then let it go.

    • 6) What ever you do, always give it a good go. Don’t be afraid of failure and disappointment.


    • 7) Be generous and kind because you can’t take it with you. When you’ve got something to give, give it without hesitation.


    • 8) Appreciate beauty, take pictures and make memories. Capture it, you never know when it’ll be gone.


    • 9) Don’t take yourself too seriously. People who take themselves too seriously are boring.


    • 10) Never, ever, ever, ever give up. Keep on punching no matter what your up against.


    • 11) Love with all your heart. In the end, love is the only thing that matters.

    Considering he did most of his acting in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" talking to a "Blue Screen" I still believe it was a major shame he did not get even a nomination for Best Actor for that role.

    ****ing depressing. He made so many great movies. The Long Good Friday and Mona Lisa especially, but for me he'll always be Eddie Valiant first.

    A tremendous loss.

    He is also a large part of the reason Unleashed is the only good American film Jet Li has ever done.

    RIP

    This one is tremendously sad to me. Someone I always enjoyed watching. Thanks for posting his daughter's words - they are some to definitely live by.
