James Doohan died today.

James Doohan, who faked a Scottish burr to create one of television's most endearing characters, Chief Engineer Montgomery (Scotty) Scott of the U.S.S. Enterprise, died today at the age of 85.

Finally found an article, heard it on the news.

edited 'cause I can't spell and to add the news article.

Bummer. Of course we think of James Doohan as "Scotty", and we always will. He did have quite a long and distinguished show biz carrier. Here's a listing of much of his work in television and movies at the Internet Movie Database.

That's a great link. Always cool to see what someone with such a stereotype worked on on during their career.

Internet Movie Database is the fountain of knowledge on movies, tv-series, and actors.

It has everything. Well, not everything, there seems to be missing some odd Ingemar Bergman titles in his list, and at least one Jackie Chan-movie (last time I checked).
You won't find "adult theme"-movies in there, but stars like Ginger Lynn and Traci Lords have done roles in "regular" productions also, and can thus be found in the Database.
I was actually supposed to see Traci Lords this summer in the London setup of "The Philadelphia Story", but when we found out Kevin Spacey was substituted for another actor my girlfriend wasn't that keen anymore.

Holy Sh**! I just noticed that Internet Movie Database is now including adult films in their listings. This is a big surprise to me.

Ha ha, you're right! Searching "anal adventure" returned 20 titles! I had no idea they catalogued adult films.

Yeah, this is a new feature. I haven't seen this before, and it wasn't more than two weeks ago I checked Traci Lords, just because she in the current London production of "The Philadelphia Story".
