RE: Teala Loring

This is cool. Started the Blog two days ago and I've already received a confirmation of Debra Paget's sister Teala Loring. Writer Harris Lentz wrote to tell me that Ms. Loring's married name was Pickler.

MARCIA ELOISE PICKLER 06 Oct 1922 28 Jan 2007 (P) 77380 (Spring, Montgomery, TX) 77386 (Spring, Montgomery, TX)

One down more to go.

Mary Hughes

Mary Hughes was a beautiful blond who appeared in a number of the "Beach movies" during the 1960s. I spoke with a former actor who knew Ms. Hughes. He stated she died of cancer, but he had heard it from a friend of a friend's wife. Never any confirmation in the news. He did not know the date of death either. Ms. Hughes supposedly died of cancer this year in Malibu California. If anyone has more specific information, please let me know.

Theodore Gershuny

I've found a couple of reports including an interview with Mary Woronov stating that director Theodore Gershundy died in 2007. He directed the great cult film "Sugar Cookies." Anyone with more specific information please write and let me know.

George Tyne: director and actor

The Director's Guild Magazine reported the passing of George Tyne. There was no date given. He had an incredible career and worked on some of my favorite films. Again, any help with more information about his passing would be appreciated.

Teala Loring

Actress Teala Loring was the sister of Debra Paget. I've not been able to find confirmation of Ms. Loring's date of death. Writer Tom Weaver reported that Ms. Loring died as a result of injuries sustained in a car crash in Texas last year. Anyone out there have confirmation?

First Post

Hello! I'm still getting the hang of this format. Still have to figure out how to post pictures, etc. Anyway, I'll be starting off with some information concerning celebrities who have passed away but haven't appeared in my monthly columns. I'd appreciate any one who might be able to provide confirmation of dates of death, dates of birth and other relevant information.
