TCM Remembers 2012
Andy Griffith, Larry Hagman, Ernest Borgnine, Phyllis Diller, Davy Jones, William Windom--the list of great actors, entertainers and filmmakers who have died in the past 12 months seems to get more sobering every year at this time. TCM always creates such a beautiful tribute in their annual "TCM Remembers" videos. The haunting song used this time is Wait by M83. TCM posted their annual salute, embedded above, on Dec. 10, so a few big names are missing, including Charles Durning, Jack Klugman and Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson. Notable Canadians who passed away in 2012 include Neon Rider star Winston Rekert, 63, writer/producer Frank Peppiatt, 85 and Polka Dot Door creator Ted Coneybeare, 86. Other big TV names off the TCM list include Sherman Hemsley, Richard Dawson , Mike Wallace and a guy who will be missed in Times Square this Dec. 31, Dick Clark.
