TCM Remembers 2016

TCM's annual salute to filmmakers who have passed on in the previous year is now available online.

The 2016 TCM Remembers tribute can be viewed via TCM's Twitter account or at the TCM website.

I was particularly glad to see that former child actress Joan Carroll of MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS (1944) was included. The video also made me aware of the passing of "B" Westerns leading lady Ruth Terry.

I do wish Noreen Corcoran and Lyn Wilde had also been part of the tribute, but all in all TCM always does a fine job with these videos.

Zsa Zsa Gabor passed away right after the video was released and was edited in.

Since TCM released the video, word has come of the passing of French actress Michele Morgan at the age of 96. More on that will follow in a separate post.

Past TCM tribute posts: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.

December 28th Update: TCM has now updated the video, adding Zsa Zsa Gabor and Carrie Fisher.

Sadly, TCM must now also add Carrie's mom, Debbie Reynolds.
