The Daily Goodbye

Matt Schudel

Here are a few obits from elsewhere that are worth a look.
The L.A. Times writes about Dorothea Holt Redmond, who helped create the look and mood of many of Alfred Hitchcock's films.

England's Guardian newspaper has a nice piece about Margaret Mellis, a British artist who made sculptures from driftwood.

The Telegraph has a fascinating story about Alastair Ivor Gilbert Boyd, Lord Kilmarnock, who was an authority on Spain married Kingsley Amis's ex-wife. The three of them shared a house together, apparently happily.

The Times of London has a terrific piece about Patrick Kinna, who was the confidential secretary to Winston Churchill during World War II.

Finally, for anyone curious about how the British papers handled the death of Natasha Richardson, here are some obits from across the pond.
