Cynthia Lennon

Sorry, girls, he’s married: John and Cynthia Lennon, who died today at age 75, in London airport. February 7, 1964.

Gimme Shelter

Because Albert Maysles, who was partially responsible for bringing us one of the greatest moments in the history of cinema (when that dude from the Jefferson Airplane got his clock cleaned by one of the Angels in Gimme Shelter), died yesterday, here’s an appreciation of Gimme Shelter from Films and Filming. August 1971.

Daria Halprin and Rod Taylor (who died yesterday at age 84) in Zabriskie Point. Antonioni. 1970.

I realize that this is a pretty crummy photo of Taylor but the stills photographer on Zabriskie Point seems to have favored Daria.
