Roderick Andrew Anthony Jude "Roddy" McDowall (1928 - 1998) started out as a child actor and worked his way through the Golden Age of Hollywood and beyond to become the legendary character actor that we know and love today. He rubbed elbows with the elite as he was cast into some of the most legendary movies ever filmed and still fit effortlessly into the exploitation films of the 80s.
Burt Reynolds (1936 - 2018) was a true icon of cinema. Constantly working through the smaller roles in tv and westerns Burt finally found his niche in the late 70s and became the biggest star well into the 80s. He was the every man's cinematic legend. A man of the south and for the south. A cowboy hat wearin', lady slayin', Trans Am drivin' hero.
Shinobu Hashimoto (1918 - 2018) might not be a household name but if you grew up as a fan of George Lucas' influential space opera then you owe the man a great deal of thanks. A screenwriter that helped pen some of Akira Kurosawa's very best work including THE SEVEN SAMURAI, IKIRU, THRONE OF BLOOD, and one of the main inspirations for STAR WARS, THE HIDDEN FORTRESS.
Robby Müller (1940 - 2018) was the legendary Dutch cinematographer nicknamed the “Master of Light”. An artist who focused on his improvisational use of color, natural light, and composition.

George Andrew Romero (1940 - 2017) was known to some as The Godfather of the Dead, to others King of the Zombies, but to all he was a legend. An icon of cinema that not only changed the horror landscape but showed how the genre can be used as a platform to talk about more serious matters.

James Milton Kelly (1946 - 2013) was a key figure in the blending of two essential film movements that defined the 70s through blaxploitation and kung fu cinema. Jim was a devout follower of Bruce Lee, had the fancy footwork of Muhammad Ali, and had the baddest kiai in the business.
