COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN Day 5: HAPPY BIRTHDAY DONALD PLEASENCE!
DONALD PLEASENCE, born October 5, 1919, best remembered as the tenacious Dr. Loomis in the original HALLOWEEN series, was a prolific actor, whose career spanned 5 decades, in film and television, covering everything from drama, comedy, science fiction and of course horror. Sadly Donald passed away on February 2, 1995 from complications after heart valve replacement surgery. His talent is sorely missed, definitely by this fan. Happy Birthday Mr. Pleasence.
