Elizabeth Taylor, Farley Granger, Jane Russell, Peter Falk, Sidney Lumet: TCM Remembers 2011

13 December 2011 4:16 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

"TCM Remembers 2011" is out. Remembered by Turner Classic Movies are many of those in the film world who left us this past year. As always, this latest "TCM Remembers" entry is a classy, immensely moving compilation. The haunting background song is "Before You Go," by Ok Sweetheart.

Among those featured in "TCM Remembers 2011" are Farley Granger, the star of Luchino Visconti's Senso and Alfred Hitchcock's Rope and Strangers on a Train; Oscar-nominated Australian actress Diane Cilento (Tom Jones, Hombre), formerly married to Sean Connery; and two-time Oscar nominee Peter Falk (Murder, Inc., Pocketful of Miracles, The Great Race), best remembered as television's Columbo. Or, for those into arthouse fare, for playing an angel in Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire.

Also, Jane Russell, whose cleavage and sensuous lips in Howard Hughes' The Outlaw left the puritans of the Production Code Association apoplectic; another Australian performer, Googie Withers, among »

William Campbell obituary

20 June 2011 4:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

American actor known for his roles in horror films and Star Trek

The actor William Campbell, who has died aged 87, had a long and varied career in films and on television, finding recognition from his association with several low-budget horror pictures and with the TV sci-fi series Star Trek. However, although he had the hooded eyes and languid manner of Robert Mitchum and something of the laid-back anarchism of Jack Nicholson, entry into the major league of stardom eluded him.

Campbell was in the first series of Star Trek, in an episode entitled The Squire of Gothos (1967), in which he has a field day as General Trelane, a foppish, childish humanoid, swinging wildly from joviality to sulkiness to anger. In The Trouble With Tribbles (1967), in the second season, Campbell was equally impressive as Koloth, a bearded, bureaucratic Klingon, a character that he revived 27 years later, towards the end of his working life, »

William Campbell, 'Star Trek's' Trelane, Dead At 87

9 May 2011 10:25 AM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Whether it was a gold-armored Klingon, or an omnipotent being who forgot to factor in how long it takes light to travel, William Campbell could play just about anything. The celebrated character actor, who appeared in both "Star Trek" and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," died April 28. He was 87. Campbell is probably best known to Trek fans as Trelane, the Q-like character who pestered the Enterprise crew in the 1967 episode "Squire of Gothos." Trelane was actually later added to the Q Continuum, outside of canon, by author Peter David in his popular 1994 book "Q-Squared." He also appeared in one of "Star Trek's" other famed episodes, "The Trouble With Tribbles," playing the Klingon Koloth. It's a role he would revive in 1994 for the DS9 episode "Blood Oath," along with Michael Ansara »

Rest in Peace: William Campbell

3 May 2011 2:23 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Another film treasure has set out into the great beyond, and while you may not know his name you assuredly know his work. Sadly, classic film actor William Campbell passed away April 28th at the age of 84.

Campbell was known for being the first actor to ever sing with Elvis Presley in a movie in Love Me Tender (1956); for such classic films as Hush … Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964) with Bette Davis; as Jerry Austin in the popular ’50s television series "Cannonball"; and for guest-starring in two memorable episodes of the original "Star Trek" TV series, playing the all-powerful Trelane in the episode “The Squire of Gothos” and Koloth, a Klingon, in “The Trouble With Tribbles,” both of which aired in 1967; among many, many other notable film and television credits.

Campbell was also known for his role in the iconic cult film Dementia 13 (1963) (which has just been released on Blu-ray), which »

William Campbell: From Elvis to JFK to Captain Kirk

3 May 2011 11:37 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Even if his life had never put him (indirectly but thoroughly) into a sex scandal involving the most charismatic president of the 20th Century, William Campbell would have enjoyed a remarkable string of close encounters with greatness. He made movies with John Garfield; "sang" with Elvis Presley; was reportedly dumped by his wife for Frank Sinatra; helped Francis Ford Coppola launch his directing career; wound up in two cult horror movies ("Dementia 13" and "Track of the Vampire") and two classic "Star Trek" episodes; and played characters loosely based on murderer »

Star Trek: William Campbell Dies; Farewell Trelaine and Koloth

2 May 2011 7:47 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

An actor who played two memorable villains from the original Star Trek series has died. William Campbell passed away on April 28th at the Motion Picture & Television Country Home and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California. He was 84 years old.

Originally from Newark, New Jersey, Campbell appeared in several movies from the 1950s through the 1970s, including Love Me Tender (with Elvis Presley), Dementia 13, Operation Pacific, Battle Circus, The High and the Mighty, and Pretty Maids All in a Row.

The latter was written by Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Campbell had worked with Roddenberry on two memorable episodes of Star Trek in the latter part of the 1960s. He played Trelane, an all-powerful being who had taken the form of a Liberace-like fop, "The Squire of Gothos." He reprised the role for the Star Trek: Judgment Rites video game many years later. »

William Campbell Dies: Star Trek, Cell Block 2455 Death Row

1 May 2011 2:33 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Actor William Campbell died on April 29 at age 87 of "natural causes" at the Motion Picture & Television Fund's hospital in the Los Angeles suburb of Woodland Hills. Though perhaps best-remembered for his roles in two Star Trek episodes, "The Trouble with Tribbles" and "The Squire of Gothos" (doing a Liberace sendup), Campbell appeared in more than 30 features, and nearly 50 television series and movies. On the big screen, Campbell's most notable role was probably as San Quentin inmate Whit Whittier, the "Lovers' Lane Bandit," in Fred F. Sears' Cell 2455 Death Row (1955), a competent if uninspired prison drama based on death-row inmate Caryl Chessman's bestselling autobiography. (Despite worldwide appeals for clemency, Chessman was sent to the gas chamber in 1960.) Had Cell 2455 Death Row been a sleeper hit, Campbell might have become a star (one of his romantic interests in the film, Kathryn Grant, went on to [...] »

DVD and Blu-Ray Releases: April 26th - Monsters, Eastern Fare and Re-releases

25 April 2011 5:29 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Syfy and Korean monsters, machine-gun-toting Japanese schoolgirls, and some re-releases are the topics of this week's horror titles.

While Dinoshark (directed by Kevin O'Neill and starring Eric Balfour, Iva Hasperger, Aaron Diaz, Humberto Busto, Roger Corman) and Mongolian Death Worm (directed by Steven R. Monroe and starring Sean Patrick Flanery, Victoria Pratt) were on cable TV only recently, they're already here on home video. On top of that Chawz, the "Jaws with a wild boar" offering from Korea, and the hilariously unbelievable Machine Girl are vying for your purse strings all way from the Far East.

For the classically inclined, re-releases of Roger Corman's The Terror with a young Jack Nicholson, The Dorm That Dripped Blood, El Topo, as well as Francis Ford Coppola's Dementia 13 will keep you company this week.

The Terror

Directed by Roger Corman

Starring Jack Nicholson, Boris Karloff, Sandra Knight

21 March 2011 3:18 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

I'll be the first to admit it. I'm officially a Blu-ray snob. It took a while to get there, but you know what? When you see first-hand how cool Blu-ray technology is, you'll be sold, too. Three classics are coming our way in glorious 1080p, and we've got the scoop on them for ya!
