    Not all losses are A List stars, creatives or crew, or household names to the public at large, but we just lost the following too.....

    Remembered for their own unique, often modest contribution to things we love.....


    Please feel free to highlight the passing of all those you feel deserve a mention and who might otherwise be overlooked.....

    R.I.P. Gloria Katz

    Oscar-nominated producer and screenwriter Gloria Katz has died. 76-year-old Katz reportedly passed away on Sunday in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after a battle with ovarian cancer.

    Katz, her husband William Huyck and filmmaker George Lucas often collaborated with Katz co-writing “American Graffiti,” “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” “Howard the Duck” and “Radioland Murders”.

    She and Huyck did an uncredited script polish on the original “Star Wars,” penning about 30% of the film’s dialogue. Their biggest contributions were adding humor and making the Princess Leia character much more assertive.

    She also co-wrote “Messiah of Evil,” “Lucky Lady,” “French Postcards,” “Best Defense” with Huyck with him helming all four of them along with “Howard the Duck”.
