Marsha Hunt, Irene Papas. Henry Silva and Jean-Luc Godard, RIP -- September 19, 2022

Beautiful actress Martha Hunt has died at the age of 104. Everyone I know who met her said she was a nice person. She was also one of our last links to old Hollywood. I like everything I have seen her in, like Kid Glove Killer with Van Heflin. She got blacklisted, but was able to work on Broadway. In later years, she played the mother in Johnny Got His Gun, based on the novel by Dalton Trumbo, who had also been blacklisted.

Greek actress Irene Papas has also died.

Actor Henry Silva also died. He was in everything, but I never paid much attention to him.

Director Jean-Luc Godard has also died. When I was a regular cinema-goer, it was hard to find his current movies being shown in San Francisco. Even his early ones like Breathless were hard to find. He was a member of the Nouvelle Vague
