I knew it had to happen someday, theoretically, but the death of Charles Lane at age 102 still surprised me.

Mark Evanier, a big Lane fan, collects links to his previous Charles Lane posts.

And here again is one of my favorite Charles Lane moments, one of the few times he ever got to play a good guy: in Gregory La Cava's 1940 film Primrose Path, when Ginger Rogers is forced into prostitution, Lane is her first client -- and he helps reunite her with her estranged husband Joel McCrea.

But...but he CAN'T die -- he's got to play Mr. Burns in my proposed live-action Simpsons movie!
