These are all sad but for some reason Patrick McGoohan hit me the hardest since I had just finished watching the Prisoner for the first time.

Nice to see that they included Eartha Kitt--I believe she died on Christmas last year, but missed their TCM Remembers list then. Still sad about Karl Malden; I've loved everything I've seen him in.
