2017 RIP Master Thread
This is the Master Thread for posting and discussing celebrity deaths for calendar year 2017. Posting to this thread does not make a person's death less relevant.
If you feel as though a specific celeb deserves its own thread, by all means start a dedicated thread for that person. Perfect example of someone that would certainly deserve their own thread - Harrison Ford. Someone with less impact on film and more appropriate to this thread, Carrie Fisher.Keep Physical Media Alive, Just say NO to digital "ownership"

The author and screenwriter that brought us The Exorcist, William Peter Blatty has died at the age of 89.
There were some very unusual events with the making of the movie, including the set burning down during production.
Blattey had a hand in many other productions as well. Check out the imdb link for that.
Anyone care to share their Exorcist experiences?Keep Physical Media Alive, Just say NO to digital "ownership"

Known for her own show (obviously) and the Dick Van Dyke show. Got 7 emmys and an Oscar Nomination for her role in "Ordinary People."
Check out how many roles she was involved in. Mostly small screen but not any less important.
Variety has a nice photo montage over here. I got a chuckle of the photo of her an Betty White in prison orange colors.
Variety's actual article is right here.Keep Physical Media Alive, Just say NO to digital "ownership"

Richard Hatch dead at 71
The BSG legend sadly has passed away. He was a great guy, I met him at Comic Con a few years ago and we were able to chat for quite awhile. Rest in peace, man.

Many a Saturday was spend watching George "The Animal" Steele. George passed away on February 16, 2017.
Had not seen much of him in recent years, it does not reduce the influence he had on the small screen.

Didn't see this noted but thought it was worth posting, even if it is a little late. Longtime Turner Classic Movies host, Robert Osborne passed away on March 6. I loved his vast knowledge of the film industry and always found his background information on the films shown on TCM to be a fascinating addition to the film viewing experience.
