RIP Ernest Borgnine and Ann Rutherford
I don’t know about you guys, but lately life has been tough for me. I’ve been feeling sad, lonely, and just not good enough. Some of what I’ve been feeling comes from the recent deaths of two talented, beloved actors.
First, we lost Ann Rutherford (November 2, 1917-June 11, 2012). Most famous for her small role as Carreen O’Hara in Gone with the Wind and as Polly Benedict in the Andy Hardy films, she died from heart failure at age 94. This is just SO depressing. She was one of the last surviving cast members of GWTW and one of the most friendly, approachable actresses. In the past two years she has attended he TCM Classic Film Festival and several GWTW events. She truly loved talking to the fans and sharing her memories of a beautiful, bygone era that I would do anything to return to
And yesterday, we lost Ernest Borgnine (January 24, 1917-July 8, 2012). Borgnine often played supporting roles (often the villain) but he is most famous for his Oscar winning role as the title character in Marty. He died of renal failure at age 95. And this makes me upset. I thought it was easier to treat renal failure nowadays
I’m so worried. I have this anxiety of my favorite stars dying. Am I the only one who feels this way?
