I wonder if he had last words, or if he just waved goodbye.

Look at the bright side, his pantomime "Man in the Box" will never be better!












Too soon?

A mime is a terrible thing to waste.

Never heard of him, never saw preform. I wonder if somebody whacked him with an olive loaf.

I'll be really impressed if somebody understands my olive loaf reference.

You got Opus right, I believe he was just walking home from the grocery store with a bag full of groceries when a Mime started messing with him; Opus flipped out and pummeled the poor Mime with his olive loaf... which of course started a week or so of cartoons based on the pummeling.

Ah here it is:

Dubbed the "Olive Loaf Vigilante", Opus is jailed for pummeling street mimes. (p124, 16 strips)

Here are some excerpts from his notice in today's NY Times:

"He appeared in several movies, including “Barbarella” with Jane Fonda. He spoke just once in his performing career, in Mel Brooks’s “Silent Movie.” He said, “No.”
-----------------------------------------------
"Marcel Marceau was born Marcel Mangel, of Jewish parents in Strasbourg, France, on March 22, 1923. His father, a butcher, was deported to a concentration camp by the Germans in 1944 and never returned. Marcel moved to Paris, with a new surname and false identification papers. Until the liberation of Paris, he worked in the resistance, hiding Jewish children from the Gestapo and the French police, who helped round up Jews for deportation.
-----------------------------------------------
"But that year [1955] he toured North America and was lionized, giving rise to his worldwide popularity and even leading to a greater degree of esteem in his native France. In Hollywood, he played to acclaim for six weeks and was proud that Charles Laughton, Marlon Brando, Gary Cooper and the Marx Brothers came to see him. Harpo Marx, also a silent performer, became a friend."

I remember the drawing of Opus standing on the pummeled mime's belly panting or looking shocked or something. Great panel.

Steve Dallas represented everything *RIGHT* about the 80s. That is all.

I remember when Cutter John was dating Bobby and Steve got jealous and got a wheelchair of his own. Brilliance!
