KIRK AYLN was cast as Superman/Clark Kent and NOEL NEILL was Lois Lane. And a movie franchise was born…
On this day in 1998, Sonny Bono, Congressman and former half of the singing duo Sonny and Cher, is killed in a skiing accident. Born in 1935, Bono rose to fame in the early 1970s as the straight man to his wife in “The Sonny and Cher Show.” As a signer and songwriter he received ten gold records during his career but his biggest hit was undoubtedly 1965’s ”I Got You Babe.” He entered the political world in 1988 when he was elected mayor of Palm Springs. He was elected to Congress in 1994 as a Republican. He was 62.
Set in China in the early 30’s, 7 WOMEN told a story of a group of dedicated missionary women. Not a teriffic film but a great cast featuring ANNE BANCROFT, SUE LYON, MARGARET LEIGHTON, FLORA ROBSON, MILDRED DUNNOCK, BETTY FIELD and ANNA LEE.
While not exactly the final film that FORD fans may have hoped for, his fingerprints are all over it. Below, a tribute from PETER BOGDANOVICH:
We were struck by the news that JOHN TRAVOLTA’S son, JETT, died over the week-end. Not because we knew JETT but because we’ve been interviewing JOHN since before JETT was born and through his stories, we felt like we knew him. Whenever JOHN talked about his son, we could tell how close they were and how proud he was.
Here, from an interview thirteen years ago for the film PHENOMENOM, is TRAVOLTA telling tales of a three year old JETT.
HOLLYWOOD OUTBREAK offers sincere condolences to the TRAVOLTA FAMILY during this extremely difficult time.
