Some passings of Hollywood actors

Odd, that suddenly we lost so many legends in the last week:

Forrest Ackerman, 92, who coined the phrase sci fi.

Veteran Character actors Paul Benedict, 70, Mr. Bentley on the Jeffersons and Robert Prosky, 77 -way too many films and TV shows to remember.

And then the legendary Van Johnson, 92, who's boyish good looks made him a star in such films as A Guy Named Joe, Brigadoon and The Caine Mutiny.

And one final note, of the passing of Pin-up Queen Bettie Page, who left us at 85.
