John Cassavetes


Are you familiar? I only saw "A Woman Under the Influence" as far as what he has directed.

Another art/film maker who died of alcoholism.

I remember him best as the husband in Rosemary's Baby.

How sad.

He died just shy of 60. "A Woman Under the Influence" is a really great film.

I read though he was also diagnosed with viral hepatitis 20 years before his death which can be hard on a person too. I have to imagine though he would have been cautioned against drinking.

He was married to Gena Rowlands, who starred in A Woman Under the Influence and some other movies that he directed, Gloria was another one I think.

A talented actor and director, who died too young.

Right! I have been meaning to see Gloria. I couldn't think of the name of it.
