Deaths in Entertainment

It's a sad day in the entertainment world.  By now everyone's probably heard about the death of iconic movie funnyman Leslie Nielson.

For science fiction, particularly Star Wars, fans there is another significant loss.  Irvin Kershner, director of Empire Strikes Back and James Bond movie, Never Say Never Again, died at age 87 at his home in Las Angeles.  I'm sure Master Yoda would remind us at this time to rejoice for Mr. Kershner becoming one with the living force.
