    Schoolhouse Rock! Singer Jack Sheldon Dies at 88


    Jack Sheldon, a trumpeter, singer, and actor who famously contributed to Schoolhouse Rock!, has passed away at the age of 88. Word of Sheldon's passing was first publicly revealed on Facebook, through a post shared by his biographer and documentarian, Doug McIntyre. The news has since been confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter by Dianne Jimenez, Sheldon's longtime manager.

    Born in 1931, Sheldon began to professionally play music at the age of 13, and grew to become an integral part of the 1950s' West Coast jazz scene. Sheldon's musical talents led to him contributing to quite a lot of television theme songs, including playing trumpet on Peter Gunn and The Munsters, as well as The Sandpiper's "The Shadow of Your Smile".

    On the acting side, Sheldon's filmography included Freaky Friday, Gilligan's Island, Dragnet, and Petticoat Junction. He even briefly had his own sitcom in the 1960s, which was called Run, Buddy, Run.

    Sheldon went on to join Schoolhouse Rock! in its second season, and lent his voice to multiple iconic shorts in the series. These included "I'm Just a Bill", "Conjunction Junction", "Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla", and "The Tale of Mr. Morton". Sheldon's role in the series was so popular that he went on to parody it on The Simpsons and Family Guy, and even took part in a club tour of Schoolhouse Rock! songs. Outside of that, Sheldon served as the music director and onscreen sidekick for The Merv Griffin Show, a role he held for 18 years.

    Sheldon was also candid about his battles with alcoholism and cancer, as well as the debilitating stroke that he suffered in 2011. After the stroke led to him losing the use of his right arm and hand, Sheldon learned how to replay the trumpet left-handed, and performed onstage again in 2013.

    “Jack is definitely one of a kind. …Los Angeles has a lot of great players, but I don’t know anyone who can do the comedy, the singing, and the playing like Jack,” Clint Eastwood, who was a friend of Sheldon's, said in a 2002 Los Angeles Times profile. “Playing technically well is one thing, but Jack gets a great sound that a lot of players just don’t get.”

    “It’s a haunting trumpet he plays,” Merv Griffin added. “Henry Mancini once told me, ‘If I’ve got a couple making passionate love onscreen and I’m writing the score, it’s Jack Sheldon’s trumpet I want.’”

    Our thoughts are with Sheldon's family, friends, and fans at this time.

    Natalie Trundy, Actress in Four 'Planet of the Apes' Movies,' Dies at 79


    While still in her teens, she starred twice on Broadway and in films with Dean Stockwell and Marlene Dietrich.

    Natalie Trundy, who starred with Dean Stockwell in The Careless Years and appeared in four of the five original Planet of the Apes movies, has died. She was 79.

    Trundy died Dec. 15 in Los Angeles of natural causes, her daughter, Alessandra Sabato, told The Hollywood Reporter.

    Then newly married to Planet of the Apes producer Arthur P. Jacobs, Trundy was cast as the radiation-scarred mutant Albina opposite astronaut James Franciscus in the franchise's first sequel, Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970).

    The actress then portrayed Dr. Stephanie "Stevie" Branton in Escape From Planet of the Apes (1971) and the chimpanzee Lisa, who winds up marrying Roddy McDowall's Cornelius, in Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972) and Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973).

    In June 1973, Jacobs died of a heart attack at age 51 in their Beverly Hills home while Trundy was in Mississippi filming a musical adaptation of Huckleberry Finn (1974), also produced by her husband. She made just one more onscreen appearance, on a 1978 episode of Quincy, M.E.

    Born on Aug. 5, 1940, in Boston, Trundy appeared several times on live television before making her Broadway debut in 1953's A Girl Can Tell. The strawberry blonde then appeared in 1956 with Marlene Dietrich and Vittorio De Sica in The Montecarlo Story and with Shelley Winters on Broadway in Girls of Summer.

    Trundy and Dean Stockwell play headstrong high school teenagers who go to Mexico to elope in The Careless Years (1957), the first feature directed by Arthur Hiller.

    After appearing in the Jimmy Stewart film Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation (1962) and on such TV shows as Climax!, Thriller, Bonanza and The Twilight Zone (in the 1963 episode "Valley of the Shadow"), Trundy was struck by a car and spent a year in a back brace.

    The actress had met Jacobs, who was Dietrich's agent, during filming of The Montecarlo Story, and they bumped into each other in London while he was producing Doctor Dolittle (1967). (He would earn a best picture Oscar nomination for his work.) He became her second husband when they wed in London in June 1968.

    Five years earlier, Jacobs, who also had repped Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Gregory Peck, Richard Burton and others, purchased the rights to Pierre Boulle's novel Monkey Planet, and the first entry in the Planet of the Apes series at 20th Century Fox reached theaters in April 1968.

    Trundy chalked up her roles in the Apes moves to nepotism. She told Jacobs, "I wanna be in [the first sequel], and I was. All of them, from then on!" she said in Tom Weaver's 2003 book, Eye on Science Fiction. "I really did them for fun, if you want to know the truth."

    Trundy later was married to Gucci executive Carmine Roberto Foggia — she had her daughter and son Francesco with him — and volunteered for years at Mother Theresa's hospice in Kolkata, India.
