RIP JOHN SAXON 1935-2020

One of the greatest actors ever to appear in films has passed away.

John Saxon appeared in over 200 films during his long career in Hollywood. He began in 1954 in a small uncredited role in the film "It Should Happen To You" and several other films before he landed a role in the movie "Running Wild"from 1955.

Saxon is a name any film fan would know and he appeared in almost every genre of film I love such as sci-fi, horror, film noir and JD. Some of his most memorable movies for readers of the blog include "Rock Pretty Baby", "The Evil Eye", "Can Ellen Be Saved", "Queen Of Blood", "Cannibals In The Streets", "Battle Beyond The Stars", "Nightmare On Elm Street", "Blood Beach", "Black Christmas" and so many, many more.

For films fans like me this is a huge loss, but John Saxon leaves behind a legacy of films that will never be forgotten. He dies on July 25th, 2020 at the age of 84, just a few days shy of his 85th birthday.
