The brevity of this list reflects the fact that no one in publishing does much of anything the week between Xmas and New Years. And possibly that we are all still in shock over the sudden death of Carrie Fisher as well as her mother Debbie Reynolds. 2016 needs to die in a fire before it takes anyone else.
I saw the original Star Wars movie in the summer of 1977. Watching the movie, Princess Leia and the actress who played her seemed so much more mature than my 20-year-old self. At the time I had no idea that the actress was my own age and just as lost as I was. Coincidentally, Debbie Reynolds’ movie The Unsinkable Molly Brown is one of the very first movies I remember seeing in a theater as a child. I also remember absolutely loving it.
They were both awesome women who will be greatly missed.
