Going through celebrity obituaries every day, I tend to notice odd little connections in each year. Like Jack Wild and Lennie Weinrib both dying in the same year - they worked together on 'H.R. Pufnstuf'. Or Richard Widmark and Abby Mann, within days of each other - both connected to "Judgement At Nuremberg"

So while IMing with my brother about an hour ago, I realized another one has happened that's a bit more convoluted.....

Harve Presnell and Karl Malden have died on the same day.

Presnell played General Paul Harkins in "A Bright Shining Lie". During WWII, he served as Patton's Deputy Chief Of Staff.

Karl Malden portrayed General Omar Bradley in "Patton".

Means nothing on a cosmic scale, of course. Just thought I'd point it out.....
