Comments: Ossie Davis, R.I.P.

We seem to be loosing a lot of good people lately. It reminds me that we have to really appreciate our elders before they're gone.

Look for a 2001 interview with Ossie and Ruby Dee at NPR's site. 17:20 long. It's fascinating.

One of the interesting things about Ossie is he wrote this one incredible play -- Pearly Victorious -- and never wrote another one. When asked about this, he said Pearly Victorious was all he wanted to say.

Well, I may be wrong about some of the details, I heard this a very long time ago.

Awful politics, but a classy guy nonetheless.

Who cares about his politics. He was one of the greatest and he will be missed

The man had style and dignity. I'll miss him but he's left a great body of work behind.

he is a gone.

Always liked him. He was one of the few actors out there that actually felt, to me, like the kind of man who would sit and talk to his fans (me!) and be a "down-home" type of guy.

He'll definitely be missed, especially his joining up with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau

Does anyone out there know if there is a dvd or something in print of the play Pearly Victorious?
