RIP to the imposingly sexy Kate O’Mara...

...well known for her role on Dynasty but also for her appearances as Rani on Dr. Who and in Jimmy Sangster’s nasty but tongue-in-cheek The Horror of Frankenstein (1970) and the peerless Vampire Lovers (1970), passed on at 74. In her honor…

Monster-of-the-Week: …let’s give the nod to the Frankenstein Monster, as embodied by David “Darth Vader” Prowse in Horror of Frankenstein.

RIP also to the brilliant Lorenzo Semple, Jr., passed on at 91—the writer of TV’s Batman and The Green Hornet, and the screenwriter of the 1976 version of King Kong, the 1980 version of Flash Gordon, the underrated 1983 “off-brand” James Bond flick Never Say Never Again, and the creepy 1968 psychological thriller Pretty Poison, among many other cheeky works.
