Marilyn

Star and original Scream Queen of Tobe Hooper‘s 1974 horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Burns appeared in other horror fare such as the made-for-TV Helter Skelter, Hooper’s 1977 Saw follow-up Eaten Alive and, alongside fellow Texas alumni Ed Neal (who earlier today wrote a quite moving tribute to her on Facebook), in the 1985 Future-Kill.

Larry Hagman dead at 81

November 24, 2012

News via TMZ as well as USA Today and local papers report that veteran actor Larry Hagman passed away on Friday afternoon after battling cancer for some time. His family later released a statement that he passed peacefully and surrounded by loved ones – as he had wished.

Larry started out in 60s tv-series I Dream of Jeannie and may have become iconic portraying JR Ewing in soap opera Dallas, but me I’ll always remember the guy as the director of the 1972 sequel Son of Blob aka Beware! The Blob. Wanna check out the trailer?
