If you’re a fan of film, television, or radio, you’re sure to know these names. While most of us never met or knew these celebrities in person, something about their passing brought us a sorrow we can’t quite explain. When a truly great story is told, the audience connects with the storyteller as if they are all part of one big family. The stories they bring to life provide a connection between hundreds of strangers who laugh, cheer, and cry together while huddled in dark theaters, auditoriums, and amphitheaters.
The loss of these storytellers is therefore not insignificant. There is no shame in mourning the loss of a celebrity if their life brought some joy to yours.
Turner Classic Movies pays tribute to the great singers, actors, directors, and others who enriched our lives with magnificent stories throughout the years.
While they may be gone, their memory will live forever in classic tales of adventure, hope, sorrow, and joy that are sure to entertain many generations to come.
