Jerzy Rutowicz, a name even Polish film specialists will struggle to recognise, but as a producer he had an unusual eye for striking projects, kicking off his career with Jerzy Kawalerowicz's Night Train (1959) and Janusz Morgenstern's Goodbye, See You Tomorrow (1960), while later work includes Andrzej Kondratiuk's bonkers Polish superhero film Hydro-Riddle (1970) and the often equally deranged The Ascended (1973), hardcore avant-gardist Grzegorz Królikiewicz's commercial feature debut Through and Through (1972) and Piotr Szulkin's dystopian War of the Worlds - Next Century (1981).

Confirmed via Frameworks and mutual friends. Paul was only 52 and a really nice person.

That’s horrifying. It’s a huge loss for our planet...

I always think of Mickey Jones from his appearances on Home Improvement, and of course liked him as Hot Rod on Justified

The article I read a couple days ago said that it looked like a botched robbery in the case of Martin, who was stabbed in his home. But who knows, perhaps that was staged? And maybe new info has come out. He was a pretty wild/sharp dresser.

At one time, must be over 15 years ago now, Kenya had just 2 white rhinos left. So they were guarded and put in a shed at night to protect them. [white rhinos are actually grey just like black rhinos, but are very docile and can be touched by people without incident]. Poachers came, shot the armed guards dead and then snuffed out the last white rhinos in East Africa. That was pretty shocking.

Edit: Seems Kenya once again has the last 3 white rhinos under 24 hour guard. These came from a zoo in Czech Repub, but the male is old for a rhino at 44. In early 2017 a rhino was killed for its horn inside a zoo in France!

Gavin was in Sirk's remake of Imitation of Life of course but I always preferred A Time To Love and A Time To Die.

Terrible news. It’s always sad when any person of talent dies, but when they die at the height of their creative powers, it’s especially heartbreaking.

That's really awful. I was a fan of his music before he got known for scoring films and then I met him while working on a short film he scored. He was not only hugely talented but also a really lovely man.

His score for Sicario was so haunting, bleak and beautiful, that of among all the other impressive elements of that film, it has stayed with me the most.

An autopsy is currently scheduled because they're not sure what happened. I'd venture to say a heart issue but it does make me feel any less devastated about this.
