Some Recent Deaths

A couple of deaths I wanted to mention, first off Ray Evans. Mr. Evans was a composer, often in partnership with Jay Livingston, who wrote such classic film songs of mid century as 'Mona Lisa' and 'Que Sera Sera'. My favorite Ray Evans fun fact is that he cameos with Jay Livingston in Billy Wilder's Sunset Blvd., preforming a varent of their Oscar winning song 'Buttons and Bows' at Artie's New Years party.

Second Robert Adler, credited as 'co-inventor' of the television remote control has died here in Boise Idaho. He was 93.

Lastly, and I don't know if you've heard, but apperently a rather obscure figure named Anna Nicole Smith has died as well.
