adieu marion vargas

Janet Leigh passed on at the age of 77 on Sunday (October 03, 2004). Drop her name and the first film people think of is Psycho. But she was also in that film's unofficial precursor Touch of Evil as well as other landmarks like The Manchurian Candidate. Sired Jamie Lee Curtis who became a mini-icon with the prime inheritor of her mother's starring heritage Halloween. And then the two featured in another John Carpenter film, The Fog and in a splendid dash of almost-post-modern flourish, again in Halloween H20.
