Karen Black 1939 – 2013

The news of Karen Black’s death yesterday, after a long bout with ampullary cancer, came as a sad surprise. She was truly a unique and unforgettable screen presence. She and Timothy appeared in only one film together, John Flynn’s The Outfit (1973). They had no scenes together, but they both appear in this trailer for the film, so I’ve chosen to re-post that today.

This “rangy, imperfect beauty” leaves behind an amazing legacy and scores of saddened fans and friends. Peaceful rest, Karen, and thank you for sharing your gifts with us.
