Legendary Multi-Instrumentalist Roy Clark Dies at 85

Tony Sokol Nov 15, 2018

Roy Clark was an ambassador for country music, but his fingers fiddled in many genres.

Roy Clark could make music out of anything with strings. Guitars, banjoes, mandolins and fiddles, which he could play masterpiece classics on in a whim, were easy pickings for him. He made them scream Hee Haw, which was the name of the show he is best known for. The musical pioneer was the first country artist to play at the Montreux Jazz Festival, and one of the first American artists to perform in the Soviet Union. Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry member Clark died Thursday at his home in Tulsa, Okla., of complications from pneumonia at the age of 85, according to Variety. .

CBS cancelled Hee Haw after two years, from 1969 to 1971, but Clark and Owens were familiar faces in syndication from 1971 to 1992. Clark was born in Meherrin,

Roy Clark Dies: ‘Hee Haw’ And Country Music Star Was 85
Roy Clark, the popular country music singer-guitarist who co-hosted the long-running sketch/variety series Hee Haw with Buck Owens, died today of pneumonia complications at his home in Tulsa, Ok. He was 85.

CBS launched Hee Haw in summer 1969 as country music’s answer to Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In. Weaving performances by the genre’s top stars with surprise cameos and down-home comedy skits loaded with catchphrases, it lasted three seasons on the network — finishing in the primetime ratings top 20 in each of its first two — before moving to first-run syndication in 1971 — where it aired for 22 more years.

Among the many series regulars over the years were Louis “Grandpa” Jones, Minnie Pearl — she of the $1.98 pricetag hanging from her flowered hat — Barbi Benton, Roy Acuff, Harry Cole and that animated donkey who punctuated the punchlines with the shows titular laugh. Clark’s longtime co-host Owens died in 2006.

Roy Clark, ‘Hee Haw’ Host and Country Music Legend, Dies at 85
Roy Clark, the country music singer and co-host of “Hee Haw,” the country-infused variety show, died on Thursday. He was 85.

Clark died from complications of pneumonia at home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, according to a statement from his publicist.

Though success didn’t come early for him, Clark became one of the first musicians to bring country music to a wider audience. Starting in 1969, he was either a host or co-host — along with Buck Owens and others — of “Heehaw,” which was on the air for 24 years.

As for his solo career, Clark’s hit songs include “Yesterday, When I Was Young,” “Come Live with Me” and “Thank God and Greyhound.”

Well, if anyone was concerned that Gal Gadot was going to find herself typecast as the Amazon Princess Wonder Woman, the actress is being extremely proactive in making sure that doesn't happen.

Originally published in 1937, the novel focuses on detective Hercule Poirot who, on a luxury cruise on the Nile River, uncovers a murder, but finds his job complicated by the fact that a number of his suspects end up dead as well. Gal, 33, will be playing a rich heiress named Linnet Ridgeway Doyle and, as such, is the first cast member signed thus far. (Photo Credit: 20th Century Fox) In speaking

Lammar was recently the subject of a really rather good documentary Bombshell – The Hedy Lamarr Story, which was released through Dogwoof in the UK earlier this year. I believe you can watch it on Netflix in some territories and it really is worth tracking down.

Lamarr is credited with coming up with concepts that led to the invention of Wi-Fi and Gps. She was even inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014. She was also a major player on the Hollywood movie scene from the 1930s to the 1950s after being offered a

Movie Poster of the Week: The Illustrated Hedy Lamarr

  • MUBI
Above: Italian personality poster for Hedy Lamarr. Art by Sergio Gargiulo.Once promoted as “Hollywood’s No. 1 Glamour Girl,” Hedy Lamar (1914-2000) was much more than a pretty face, as the new documentary Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story gloriously attests. Born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler in Austria, Lamarr was catapulted to fame as the star of the scandalous 1933 Czech import Ecstasy, in which she appeared nude (and ecstatic). In America she became one of the biggest stars of the 1940s, often called the most beautiful woman in Hollywood, a designation she thought of as a curse. But she was also blessed with a curious and inventive mind. As an amateur inventor she pioneered what is known as “frequency hopping” during World War II to prevent the Nazis jamming Allied torpedoes, a technology which has become the basis of Bluetooth and Wi-fi. With that in mind, it might seem perverse to

Shay Mitchell Stuns on the June 2016 Cover of Cosmopolitan

Showing off her posing prowess, Shay Mitchell is featured on the front page of Cosmopolitan magazine’s June 2016 issue.

The “Pretty Little Liars” lady discusses her approach to her various social media platforms-

“My Instagram is like an art gallery—no blurry photos. Come to Snapchat and see it all being made. Instagram is the appetizer. Snapchat is the meal.”

Ms. Mitchell also revealed that before she scored on the acting front, she used to work bottle service at night- “I have so much respect for waiters, waitresses, girls who work in clubs. It’s tough. I’d have old guys saying ‘You’re so pretty, why are you working?’ or ‘Come live with me, honey.’ Like, what, so I can be taken care of? That’s the last thing that I want. What I wanted to say was, ‘[I work] so I will never end up with someone like you.’”

Clip joint: Kisses

Pucker up: it's Valentine's Day on Thursday and we'd like your nominations for the best onscreen smooches

This week's Clip joint is by Guardian reader Hannah Farr, who you can follow on Twitter here. If you've got an idea for a future Clip joint, drop an email to adam.boult@guardian.co.uk

The kiss; it's captivated cinemagoers since 1896 when Edison captured the first kiss on film. While you might divert your eyes from such a clinch in public, watching an onscreen kiss remains a shameless voyeuristic pleasure. So for Valentine's Day, here's five of the best onscreen kisses.

It's a Wonderful Life

I could have filled my entire top five with Jimmy Stewart's various lip-locks (The Philadelphia Story, Vertigo, Come Live with Me, Rear Window.) He was said to be nervous about filming this particular kiss, his first since returning to Hollywood after the war. The resulting embrace

Kapralik: Movie Artist Supreme

Little has been written in recent years about Jacques Kapralik, one of the most distinctive artists ever to lend his talent to movie posters, main titles, and promotional work…until now. Many film buffs will recognize his distinctive decoupage caricatures, which were a mainstay of MGM promotions throughout the 1940s (featured in trade ads and the lavish studio publication The Lion’s Roar). They even appeared in the main title sequences of such films as Presenting Lily Mars, Come Live With Me, and Pat and Mike. He was a featured cover artist for the Sunday newspaper supplement Pictorial Review for several years after that, and his work also turned up in a variety of...
