Burt Bacharach's Daughter Commits Suicide

Burt Bacharach Angie Dickinson Cassidy

The daughter of pop composer Burt Bacharach has committed suicide.

Lea Nikki Bacharach, 40, died on Thursday night at her home in northern Los Angeles, a statement released by Linda Dozoretz, the family's spokesperson said.

"She quietly and peacefully committed suicide to escape the ravages to her brain brought on by Asperger's," Ms Dozoretz said.

Ms Bacharach had suffered from Asperger's syndrome all her life but, unable to cope with the disease, suffocated herself to death using a plastic bag and helium gas.

She was the only child of the marriage between Bacharach and actress Angie Dickinson, who starred in both versions of Ocean's Eleven, Rio Bravo and Point Blank.

Bacharach, 78, is best known for his work in the 1960s and 1970s, when, among other projects, he composed the soundtracks to the original Casino Royale film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and What's New Pussycat.

He and 75-year-old Dickinson were married between 1965 and 1981.

Dynasty Producers Wanted Peppard, Loren And Dickinson


A-Team George Peppard Angie Dickinson Sophia Loren John Forsythe Joan Collins Linda Evans

The cast of glitzy 1980s soap DYNASTY could have looked very different if producers had decided to stick with their original stars.
THE A-Team star George Peppard was originally cast as BLAKE CARRINGTON and Angie Dickinson and Sophia Loren were among those on the shortlist to play famous foes CRYSTAL and ALEXIS respectively.
Eventually, John Forsythe landed the role of Blake, Joan Collins played superbitch Alexis and Linda Evans took on the part of Crystal.
Unlike her big-name co-stars, Evans admits the role kick started her career and she'll be forever indebted to DICkinson for turning the part down.
She says, "She's a friend and I adore her but I said to her, 'Thank you so much for being tired.'"
Evans also reveals she shot the Dynasty pilot with Peppard.
She recalls, "After we finished they decided they didn't want to do it - the network and George mutually - and then they gave the part to John Forsythe, who had given me my first speaking part when I was 15."
A Hollywood writer's strike meant the pilot wasn't reshot - with Forsythe as Carrington - for a year.

Dickinson Fights For Alzheimer's Cure


Angie Dickinson

Actress Angie Dickinson has launched a one-woman crusade to find a cure for memory-robbing Alzheimer's disease as a tribute to her late sister. The POLICE WOMAN star's sister, MARY LOU BELMONT, battled the insidious illness for 20 years before she passed away in December (05) - and now DICkinson is planning a major Alzheimer's awareness campaign to make sure her sibling didn't suffer in vain. The actress, 74, plans to testify in front of Congress in a desperate bid to prompt politicians to find more cash to fund research. She says, "I know she (sister) didn't die in vain and that's a blessing. It's because of her that I became involved. "Mary Lou's legacy is that she increased our awareness and so many more people now know what a tragic disease this is." More than 100,000 Americans succumb to Alzheimer's every year.

Pay It Forward Review


OK
The very idea behind Pay It Forward -- that when someone does an enormous good deed for you should pay it "forward" to three other, unsuspecting persons -- requires what is described in the film as "an extreme act of faith in the goodness of people."

It's safe to say that your enjoyment of the film is bound by this same rule. Dyed-in-the-wool film critics like myself have been down this road once or twice before, and the enormous leap of faith it takes to convince oneself that, deep down, even "bad" people are good makes me want to reach for my DVD of A Clockwork Orange.

Rio Bravo Review


Good
Dean Martin as "Dude the Drunk," eh? Why not -- it works in Rio Bravo a favorite among Western enthusiasts that nonetheless is far too long, spending too long setting up the story before getting to the powerful finale. Wayne is good, but Dean-o steals the show along with Walter Brennan's crusty jailkeeper, who owns every scene he's in. A definitive piece of Americana by way of Howard Hawks, Rio Bravo is what the late 1950s studio system was all about.
