From today's Sun-Times...

Richard Kiel (1939 - 2014)

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) Richard Kiel, the towering actor best known for portraying steel-toothed villain Jaws in a pair of James Bond films, has died. He was 74. Kelley Sanchez, director of communications at Saint Agnes Medical Center, confirmed Wednesday that Kiel was a patient at the hospital and died. Kiel's agent, Steven Stevens, also confirmed his death. Both declined to provide further details. The 7-foot-2-inch performer famously played the cable-chomping henchman who tussled with Roger Moore's Bond in 1977's "The Spy Who Loved Me" and 1979's "Moonraker." Bond quipped of the silent baddie: "His name's Jaws. He kills people." Despite appearing in several other films and TV shows, such as "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." and "The Longest Yard," the role of Jaws was an iconic one Kiel could never escape. "To this day, I go out in sunglasses and a hat because people will shout 'Hey, Jaws!' at me from across the street," he told the Daily Mail earlier this year. "The only way I can explain it is that he's like the Road Runner, which Coyote keeps trying to blow up, but he keeps going." Kiel's other memorable roles included bullying golf spectator Mr. Larson in "Happy Gilmore," lethal Dr. Loveless's assistant Voltaire in "The Wild, Wild West" and extraterrestrial Kanamit in "The Twilight Zone." He also reprised the character of Jaws for several James Bond video games and voiced the thug Vlad in the animated Disney film "Tangled." Born in Detroit, Kiel began appearing in TV shows and films in the 1960s, debuting in an episode of the Western series "Laramie." He published an autobiography in 2002 titled "Making It Big in the Movies."

Actress Marcia Strassman died Saturday at 66 in her Sherman Oaks home. Strassman is perhaps best known for playing the wives in "Welcome Back, Kotter" and the movie "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids." How will you best remember her? http://cbsloc.al/1tbz0xa

Rod Taylor, The Birds and The Time Machine Star, Dies at 84

I'd forgotten about him being in "Giant"...

giant1.jpg

From his website...

Giant (1956)

Rod Taylor -- billed as Rodney Taylor -- plays Sir David Karfrey, a small role in this giant of a film.

Texan rancher Bick Benedict (Rock Hudson) visits a Maryland farm to buy a prize horse. While there he meets and falls in love with the owner's daughter Leslie (Elizabeth Taylor), who is engaged to Sir David Karfrey (Rod), an English diplomat. Leslie drops David and runs off to Texas with Bick. David winds up marrying her younger sister instead.

The story of the Benedict family and its rivalry with Jett Rink (James Dean) unfolds across two generations, which is about how long the movie seems.

For your Rod Taylor fix, tune in to the first 15 minutes, then for another 15 minutes for the wedding scene about mid-way through. The opening scenes in Virginia are exhilarating. The lush, rolling landscape and lively chatter get the movie off to a breathless start. It's a stark contrast to the dusty, flat expanses and darker moods of the scenes set in Texas.

Despite the brevity of Rod's role, it was a giant step for the young actor. In addition to it being a huge motion picture featuring big stars, Rod got to work with George Stevens, a first-rate director who won the Oscar for his work on "Giant."

Perhaps even more valuable was the direction he gave Rod. In "Rod Taylor: An Aussie in Hollywood," author Stephen Vagg cites an interview in which Rod tells of the advice he received from Stevens:

I landed in Hollywood with a pretty smug attitude. A talk I had once with George Stevens ... put me on the right trail. He told me to respect myself as an actor, even a bit one. And I began to see the industry in a bigger perspective and I resolved to work my head off... He warned me never to be impressed by the wrong values, never to compromise if I felt I was right and to believe in what I do and be happy about it regardless of criticism. Just the thought that such a famous director would take the time to help me at that time was overwhelming. And I'll try to follow his advice until I die.

Stevens in return praised Rod as "an extraordinarily talented player" who "had a difficult part in Giant and made it outstanding."
