Wild at Heart actor Calvin Lockhart has died of a stroke in the Bahamas. He was 72.
The Nassau-born star passed away on 29 March (07) from complications of a stroke, his widow JENNIFER MILES-LOCKHART confirmed to the New York Daily News.
Lockhart started his acting career in the theatre after originally moving to New York City to study engineering.
During his four-decade long movie career, he starred in 1970s "blaxploitation" films and also played COLONEL IZZI opposite Eddie Murphy in comedy classic Coming To America.
Movie veteran Diane Ladd visited the grave of her dead daughter as part of the cathartic experience of writing her memoirs.
The Wild at Heart star lost her first daughter when she drowned at the age of two and rarely visits her grave because it's such a traumatic experience.
But she found the courage to revisit her resting place while writing new book SPIRALING THROUGH THE SCHOOL OF LIFE.
Ladd says, "I sobbed and sobbed. I'm still vulnerable... I sat alone and cried about it."
But the writing experience was also full of joyful moments - Ladd recalled how her battle to get pregnant ended with a little miracle.
She tells US news show The Insider, "Five top, very famous doctors said, 'I am sorry Diane Ladd, you will never have another child.'
"One day I walked in and said, 'Doctor, make a test. I think I'm pregnant,' and he got very angry and he said, 'Diane, I've told you you can't have a child; go home and cry.'
"I said, 'I have cried, boy, have I cried? Now doctor, go and make your test.'"
The doctor discovered Ladd was in fact pregnant - with her daughter LAURA DERN.
Cult rockers Giant Drag have hit out at their record label for adding their cover of Chris Isaak's WICKED GAME to the US repackaging of their debut album. The band's ANNIE HARDY is upset executives at independent label Kickball have decided to add their version of the 1991 hit, which featured in the film Wild at Heart, to HEART AND UNICORNS. But she accepts the move may bring the band a bigger fan base. Hardy says, "Obviously the cover wasn't on the original version of the album. Because we didn't f**king want it there. "I guess either they're buttering my balls, or it's the truth. It's hard to get female-fronted bands on bigger radio stations. "So this could be a foot in the door, or it could be the kiss of death and we'll be the next Alien Ant Farm. Wait and see."
