Linda Manz dead at 58

Reading this news was like a punch in the gut. She's in 2 of my 5 favourite films of all-time, Days of Heaven and Out of the Blue. Along with one of my favourite films of the 90's, Gummo. One of the most natural, soulful actors to ever grace the screen. RIP.

Amazing in Days if Heaven.

Maybe she’ll meet up with a character.

She was perfect in Days of Heaven and her narration kind of completes the movie.

Too bad she didn't do more movies. She dropped out of acting in 1997 since she wanted to be a wife and mother and live a normal life. She had 3 kids.

Yeah, it's too bad. She seemed to have lived a decent life so that's good. Just feel bad for her kids....She passed much too early...She was really great...

This is a bummer. Especially Out Of The Blue just got crowdfunded and got restored. It’s was supposed to be making the rounds, but covid fucked that up.

She was great. The Wanderers, Days of Heaven, and especially Out of the Blue (an underrated masterpiece).

This is very sad. I contributed to the crowd funding for Out of the Blue as I love the film and her performance. At least she will live on in her films.

So did I. I remember seeing a picture of her with the organizers of the Out of the Blue restoration. I believe she was an active participant in the project. In the picture they posted I thought she looked sick, but just chalked it up to "everyone ages". Tragically it turns out she was. She also lost her son in a motorcycle accident a couple years ago. Really sad stuff. Selfishly I hope she contributed a commentary track or some extensive interviews that can be included with the forthcoming blu-ray. The Out of the Blue poster they sent out a few weeks ago is being printed as we speak and will be framed on my wall by the end of the month. Even though she had a very small body of work, she's probably my favourite actress of all-time.

I should look into why I haven’t received my poster.

They didn't print the posters and ship them. They sent them out in an email as high quality jpg files. (Along with production stills.) I had mine printed at Staples.

Dear Wonderful Out of the Blue Blu-ray Backers -

Part of your premium for your donation is the "Rad Restorer."

Here's the link for your reward photos: https://we.tl/t-TfMpThu6Wq

Link expires August 12. If you miss that deadline, message us and we'll create a new link.

As you're aware, coronavirus pandemic cancellations and concerns have delayed the 4K restoration of OUT OF THE BLUE's 40th Anniversary Theatrical Re-release, and hence streaming, DVD and blu-ray deliveries.

We apologize for that delay and hope you understand. Believe me, we're as eager as anyone for things to get back on track and deliver your rewards.

Hope you and yours are keeping safe and healthy.

Thanks again for your support -

All best,

Elizabeth and John

Sad. She gave strong performances. I liked her as the tap-dancing mom in "Gummo".
