Frank Pierson (1925-2012) scripted some '60s/ '70s classics: DOG DAY AFTERNOON, COOL HAND LUKE, THE LOOKING GLASS WAR, THE HAPPENING, CAT BALLOU - as well as "directing" Streisand's '76 A STAR IS BORN (or A STAR IS BORING as I used to refer to it...). He also did scripts for MAD MEN up to 2012, he also produced the series and THE GOOD WIFE; and his earlier work included tv series like HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL.
Chad Everett (1936-2012), that good-looking actor also passed away aged 75, and was also working up to this year. We did not see his extensive television work here in the UK (MEDICAL CENTRE etc and appearances in those iconic shows like 77 SUNSET STRIP or HAWAIIAN EYE). He will be remembered though for those early movie roles like that water delivery boy (left) in THE CHAPMAN REPORT, 1962 - my very favourite trash classic, which I must see and comment on again - and CLAUDELLE INGLISH and THE SINGING NUN  (both at Trash label)
