RIP Richard Fleischer

Writing about web page http://www.imdb.com/news/wenn/2006-03-24/celeb/11

Thats right – he's dead. Ironically the director of Soylent Green managed to live until he was 89. What a man. Its ok, I'm sure they will remake Soylent Green pretty soon, giving Heston a cameo part. I don't know what Fleischer managed to do to coax such a brilliant performance out of him though – the amount of emotion emanating from the line, "Its people!" – WOW. That Fleisher managed to find time to Direct Conan the Destroyer as well as Soylent Green is a remarkable achievement. One of America's greats. I'm off to listen to Beethoven's 6th in tribute to him.
