    Einstein was fantastic on Curb. Sad to hear he's gone.

    Brian Garfield, who wrote the 1972 novel Death Wish that spawned the popular movie franchise featuring Charles Bronson as an architect turned vigilante, has died at the age of 79. He died on Saturday at his home in Pasadena after a battle with Parkinson's disease, his literary agent, told The Hollywood Reporter.

    Garfield also wrote the screenplay, adapted from his 1975 novel, for Hopscotch, a 1980 comedy that starred Walter Matthau, Glenda Jackson and Sam Waterston. He said he wrote that book - in which no one dies - in response to the violence of Death Wish.

    Al Reinert, who covered NASA for the Houston Chronicle and went on to co-write the screenplay for Apollo 13 which earned him an Oscar nomination, has died at the age of 71. Reinert died on New Year’s Eve of complications of cancer at his home in Wimberley, Texas, the Houston Chronicle reported.

    He directed the 1989 documentary film For All Mankind, which earned him his first Oscar nomination for best documentary feature. The film concentrates on the beauty of the Earth as seen from space, along with interviews with Apollo crew members and mission control staff played over original mission footage.

    Depending on how many and what types of books you read....you may have read more of his....because he used a bunch of different pen names. He started out writing mostly westerns, and my dad was a big western reader so there was always a bunch around the house. I didn't find out until after DEATH WISH became a big hit that he had wrote a bunch of the old westerns I had read.
