RIP, Skelly

I could kick myself for not finding out about this sooner. One of my favorite childhood stars, Skeleton Warrior, was found dead last weekend.

My most vivid memory of Skelly is from Jason and the Argonauts. Leading the pack, no one could scare like that bonehead with the devilish expression. Did you know he trained for six months with fencing champ Albert Axelrod before shooting began? Skelly was the hardest working bag of bones in Hollywood.

A special tribute site has been set up. One of the most touching pieces is this flash movie, with highlights from SW’s career.

We’ll miss you, Skelly.
