The famed actor and producer earned critical acclaim for his role in the 1960 classic, "Spartacus."
In "Spartacus," Kirk gave onscreen credit to blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Kirk's move started the dissolution of the infamous blacklisting policies that had begun nearly a decade prior.

Orson Bean Dead

Quote:
Orson Bean, the witty actor and comedian, was hit and killed by a car in Los Angeles, authorities said. He was 91.


Besides being a fixture in entertainment since he was 16, he actually experienced both extremes of the political zeitgeist: He was blacklisted in the 50's because he had a communist girlfriend. Later he became related to a leading right-wing commentator, Andrew Breitbart, when his daughter, Susannah, married him.

Hit by two separate cars. Orson Bean never did anything halfway.

Orson Bean at ninety appeared on the KTLA TV5 Weekend Morning News with his 66 year old wife in tow. Orson looked and sounded like a person in his late sixties, probably because of the love potion he gets from his young wife.
You know, Dick Van Dyke is something like 94 years old and he has more stamina than I have at sixty-two. The man can still do a full Broadway dance routine without even breaking a sweat.

It might be that Uncle Hollywood Squares just got hit by a couple of idiots doing seventy in a 25 zone while texting.
Eventually the details will filter in.

He was going to a play.

It wasn't exactly like he was wandering around downtown, he was walking in Venice.
Normally that's interesting and exciting but seldom fatal.
But yes, Venice Blvd is the busiest street in Venice, but normally once you've gotten that far west, the traffic isn't quite frantic.
And the crosswalks are all well equipped.
The part of Venice Blvd that's actually IN Venice itself is maybe a mile and a half long tops, then you hit the Pacific Ocean.

The old gang days of Venice are a distant memory, as the old gang bangers either couldn't swing the taxes or chose to take a payoff and pocket some profit on their holdings.
Because no matter how dismal, old gang houses were selling high six figures a long time ago, back around 2004.

Oh wow, an Orson Bean appearance on Johnny Carson.
Was looking for this, used the wrong search terms, found it this morning, finally.
