Actress Martha Stewart May Still Be Alive Despite Two-Year-Old Reports to the Contrary

10 November 2014 7:05 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Martha Stewart: Actress / Singer in Fox movies apparently not dead despite two-year-old reports to the contrary (Photo: Martha Stewart and Perry Como in 'Doll Face') According to various online reports, including Variety's, actress and singer Martha Stewart, a pretty blonde featured in supporting roles in a handful of 20th Century Fox movies of the '40s, died at age 89 of "natural causes" in Northeast Harbor, Maine, on February 25, 2012. Needless to say, that was not the same Martha Stewart hawking "delicious foods" and whatever else on American television. But quite possibly, the Martha Stewart who died in February 2012 -- if any -- was not the Martha Stewart of old Fox movies either. And that's why I'm republishing this (former) obit, originally posted more than two and a half years ago: March 11, 2012. Earlier today, a commenter wrote to Alt Film Guide, claiming that the Martha Stewart featured in Doll Face, I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now, »

R.I.P. “Un-Cola” Man, Bountiful Artist Geoffrey Holder

6 October 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Geoffrey Holder, the only theater man who at 6 feet, 6 inches could look Tommy Tune right in the eye and say “Abosolutely maaaaah-velous,” died Sunday in New York City. He was 84. Charles M. Mirotznik, a spokesman for the family, told the New York Times the cause was complications of pneumonia.

As well known for the honey-smooth bass-baritone that resonated through countless voice-overs as for the white linen suit and Panama hat that set off his gleaming Caribbean features — saucer eyes, broad-as-the-George-Washington-Bridge smile and shaved head — Holder became an advertising icon in the 1970s and ’80s as the pitchman for 7Up, declaring it “the Un-Cola — you know, Sev’mup – wet, wild, all that…” :

But Holder, born in Trinidad, was much more than a seductive accoutrement to Madison Avenue. He left an enduring stamp on virtually every field in the performing arts, as musician, choreographer, actor, director and designer, winning two Tony »

Geoffrey Holder, Dancer, Choreographer, Actor, Artist, Has Died

6 October 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Geoffrey Holder, a larger-than-life presence in the worlds of movies, stage, TV, art, publishing, music, dance - even advertising - died of pneumonia Sunday, The New York Times reports. He was 84 and a resident at the Lillian Booth Actors Home of The Actors Fund in Englewood, New Jersey. Holder's imposing 6'6" frame could barely contain his many talents, and a 1975 People profile that ran at the time he won two Tonys for his directing and costuming Broadway's groundbreaking The Wiz described him as having "a voice as deep as Othello and as smooth as Caribbean rum." TV watchers will remember »

Note: Geoffrey Holder, noted dancer, choreographer, actor, composer, designer and painter, died on Sunday in New York. In recognition of his life and work, here's a recent article on 'Carmen & Geoffrey,' the documentary exploring his relationship with wife Carmen De Lavallade, which is now available on Netflix and DVD.  I’ve been missing out not knowing much about the work of these two tremendous artists, icons I shall say, of what we regard today as modern dance. Married since 1955 not long after they met after working together in Harold Arlen’s "House of Flowers," Geoffrey Holder and Carmen De Lavallade’s work and personal lives are documented in the »
