This is not a saddened post but a celebration of the demise of the wonderful actors, actresses and an agent that have helped bring really good movies to our screen for decades now. This piece would concentrate on a few of these gracious talents, they are:
1.      PAT HINGLE (July 19, 1924 – January 3, 2009)
Martin Patterson "Pat" Hingle was a veteran actor for more than fifty years in film, theatre, and television. He 
is probably most known for this role of Commissioner James Gordon in the 1989 film Batman and its three sequels. 

Recently he appeared in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, as the original owner of Dennit Racing.
Some of his movie credits include Hang ‘Em High, Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive, Muppets from Space and the Shaft remake in 2000.
Pat Hingle died at his home in Carolina Beach, North Carolina of leukaemia on January 3, 2009. He had been diagnosed with myelodysplasia in November 2006.
