Before Love Story, it was A Man and a Woman (Un Homme et une Femme). You couldn't go anywhere in 1966 without hearing its theme, especially, at least six times a day . . .

! No longer available


. . . including by jazz legend Charlie Byrd . . .

! No longer available

I always wondered who did that song or what it was called! I heard it several times as background music on TV back in the 1990s but never could figure it out. The first song I ever recognized as being in 5/4 time (though it seems to shift now that I hear the whole thing).

Now I know.

I remember thinking I was so funny when I set Apple Macintosh error sound to "I'm sorry, Dave.  I'm afraid I can't do that."

Such great voice acting.

Correction (ain't I a stinker?): If she can stand it, I can---play it!

Some other favourite lines from that century's movies:

He carries 92 credit cards, the minute anything happens to him America lights up!

I sleep in the nude. Au buffo! Winter or summer with the windows open. And because I may have to go to the potty or to the fridge in the middle of the night, and because I do not like to wear jammies which I don't own, anyway, unless you'd like to give yourself a cheap thrill or your daughter an advanced education, you'll keep your door closed. Them's my rules and regulations, how do ya like those apples?

Don't torture yourself, darling---that's my job.

Close your mouths, we are not codfish!

Heeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny!

You don't need a nickname, you need a curve ball.

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour?

Be proud of those wings, they're the only one you're gonna leave here with, Mayo-nnaise!

R.I.P Stan Lee.  Passed away at age 95 after a long illness.

Just breaking on the news.

Stan Lee, last of the Silver Age comic book authors, dies at 95



Having begun his career in 1939, Stanley Lieber entered a field that had previously been dominated by what is now DC Comics. By the early 1960s, Lee's employer, then known as Atlas Comics, decided to take aim at DC's dominance of the field. With the help of Steve Ditko (who died earlier this year) and DC defector Jack Kirby, Atlas became Marvel Comics, creating a legion of more human, realistic superheroes, set in real cities (whereas DC based their characters in vaguely fictionalized representations like Gotham and Metropolis, Marvel bluntly set much of their comics in New York City). From this boom came Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, the X-Men, and several others that formed the basis of the Avengers, Marvel's answer to DC's Justice League. Marvel's willingness to confront communists and portray them as enemies when DC ignored them was a major factor in the rapid rise in Marvel's fortunes in the 1960s.

Lee eventually transitioned into the comic book industry’s most well-known and passionate public ambassador, appearing in cameo appearances in most of Marvel's many film and television adaptations. The characters Lee co-created and developed are believed to have earned enough money to have made him a billionaire, although he attests to have never made that much money and was embroiled in legal action for much of his later life.

Lee died of a pneumonia-related ‘‘medical emergency’’ in Los Angeles the morning of November 12.

From what I read Mr. Lee's last several months or longer weren't too good for him.  Lawsuits. allegations that managers and partners cheated him out of money, even accused his own daughter of abuse.  I don't know if the accusations were valid or if he had developed some kind of dementia and/or paranoia.  All in all, not a good way to go out. 

May Mr. Lee find peace in the afterlife.

RIP MR Lee. Thanks for all the cameos on The Simpsons, Hells Kitchen, and all the other TV shows you were on in the last decade of your life. You made me laugh in those cameos.

Can't say Stan didn't live a full life, that's for sure. Had to be a kick to see his many creations come to life on the big screen and be involved in all that.

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics' Real-Life Superhero, Dies at 95

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics' Real-Life Superhero, Dies at 95

Quote
X-Men, the Mighty Thor, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil and Ant-Man, among countless other characters, died early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, a family representative told The Hollywood Reporter.

Kirk Schenck, an attorney for Lee's daughter, J.C. Lee, also confirmed his death.

Lee's final few years were tumultuous. After Joan, his wife of 69 years, died in July 2017, he sued executives at POW! Entertainment — a company he founded in 2001 to develop film, TV and video game properties — for $1 billion alleging fraud, then abruptly dropped the suit weeks later. He also sued his ex-business manager and filed for a restraining order against a man who had been handling his affairs. (Lee's estate is estimated to be worth as much as $70 million.) And in June 2018, it was revealed that the Los Angeles Police Department had been investigating reports of elder abuse against him.
I will NOT comply.

I have few heroes, really, in a specific sense, but Stan Lee was one, not because he braved enemy fire or dragged people from burning buildings, but because he dared to let kids and ordinary people dream of being heroes, and that so often leads to heroes in real life.
That he stood against Communism when so many were silent in the entertainment industry (and Marvel Comics were, indeed, entertainment) just adds to his status, imho.
Besides, it was fun watching for him in cameos in the movies, too.
RIP, Mr. Lee, and thanks.

 Christian composer Kurt Kaiser, writer of 'Pass It On,' dies at 83
    By CARL HOOVER

Waco composer and pianist Kurt Kaiser, writer of familiar Christian songs as “Pass It On” and “Oh How He Loves You and Me,” died Monday at his Waco home after a long illness. He was 83.

Kaiser had a six-decade-long career in composing, playing, arranging and producing Christian music. His songs, found in dozens of contemporary hymnals and songbooks, are sung by millions of Christians around the world.  ...

Kaiser’s compositions number more than 300 copyrighted songs, many of which are regular fare in Sunday worship services, such as “The Lord Whom We Love,” “Pass It On,” “Oh How He Loves You And Me” and his popular arrangement of Doris Akers’ “Sweet, Sweet Spirit.” His writing and recording, with 16 solo albums to his credit, earned him a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers as well as election to the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.  ...

I just played Pass It On in church a couple weeks ago.

I may sound like an old-school scrooge saying this, but there's just no comparison between the songs written in the 20th century and those from the 21st. It's as if Chris Tomlin showed up on the scene and everything went to crap. Now we have nonsense like "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury... reckless theology, reckless songwriting, an all-around wreck.
