Blind Item #6

This foreign born B+ list mostly movie actor who is older and an Academy Award winner was probably grateful for a recent celebrity death. She stayed quiet until the end about what the actor did to her when she was younger. I had really been hoping considering his year in 2017 that she might have left a note behind. I guess it was not to be.

I really hope this isn't Rose Marie. She was so sweet and appreciative of her fans.

Bale or Brody as long as it's not Daniel Day Lewis it's all good.

Unknown said...

I think France Gall is the deceased celeb. Not sure about the abuser... Ben Kingsley?

Christopher Plummer(old) not older. He was known to be leacherous

TMZ just confirmed that Eliza is the girl in the Someone Help Me blind.

Heather Menzies-Uriah, who played Louisa Von Trapp in the Sound of Music died just last month

overit122 said...

Hm. Just re-read the blind. That states it was an actor, and not a stuntman, but the stories are similar

Natasha said...

Doreen Tracy, an original Mousekateer just died.

But I can't think of who for the abuser.

roxy said...

The Heather/Plummer guess unfortunately makes sense.

Tricia13 said...

Niiice-I wasn’t sure of who the actress might be? Many sad passings this year

Basil said...

Okay, I might have mentioned this here before. I worked on a movie where Plummer was the lead and he was completely professional despite a couple of female crew and one actress tried to chat him up hoping to snag him. So I really can't imagine this being him. That being said, all crew were warned not to ask him about Sound of Music because he didn't like talking about it supposedly because he just took the check during filming and got no residuals forever after and was kicking himself, so the story went. So I don't want to believe this, but it is possible

buddytesla said...

He did do some acting as well.

Good call, @tricia. Another one I had no idea about. I did a search and there's an article about him having faced "lurid claims". And he replaced Spacey, that's a little ironic.
This site has been an education, lol.

Dorina Montego said...

Plummer REJECTED the advances the girl who played his eldest daughter did

She openly said that cause she fell in love with him but he politely refused saying the age gap was too big

Tricia13 said...

Thanks PG.... yes that is ironic,isn’t it. Just illustrates There really are so few “good ones” for lack of a better term. And that spans age and most other “qualifiers “. To think I used to revere this biz and so many in it?Though I always had a good nose for BS and managed to keep it at a distance....

Ervin Thompson said...

Carrie Fisher and ......

auntliddy said...

Mb Roy! Or Jimmie!!!!

PG Tips said...

YW. :) Ironic and so very depressing. I used to hold them in high esteem, myself. The arts in general. However, this stuff has really changed my view, starting with the VIP pedo rumours in the UK. I would have thought it was all made up before that and chalked it up to conspiracy theories. I take it you worked in the biz, or close enough..it is good to have a BS detector, it would have helped you along the way!

Snootches said...

Sure does sound like this is Christopher Plummer. Sigh, just another slimeball.

Shawn McGuire said...

I’ve nothing to back this up but he always pinged my gaydar

St. Dorothy of Mantooth said...

I don't want to believe this is CP, but it sure looks that way. Ironic that they replaced Spacey with another lecherous dolt :/

That relief when a person who has been harassing you (even if just by the way they leer at you from across the street) dies and you know they can't ever bother you again...

Cee Kay said...

"...might have left a note behind" suggests suicide. So, the victim is not Heather Menzies or Carrie Fisher or anyone else guessed so far.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

The Plummer guess sounds, as sad as it is, as good as any, but how about Geoffrey Rush? Accused of inappropriate conduct this year during a play in Sydney he made in 2015, but no revelation if it was sexual and it seemed to avoid the press.

Can anyone make him work? Glenne Headley, who died this year, was a contemporary, but no sign they worked together (still, the B+ lister and the victim didn't necessarily work together)

I'd say Rush is lower on the list than Plummer, and some commenters have suggested Plummer is too gentlemanly to be this person, so any way to make Rush work?

Sal Salington said...

The biggest argument against it being Plummer is that they must have done some serious vetting before using him to replace Spacey. If something had come out about him too it would have been a disaster for the project. Just in pure business terms a whiff of anything would mark him off the cast list.

MovieBuff said...

When I was a kid I watched a movie called I Love NY. Scott Baio, Christopher Plummer, and some actress. I don’t think she became anyone big so knowing this site....let’s hear a great blind about the set of that movie. At this rate nearly every B movie I watched was chock full of chaos.

Mango said...

I heard years ago that Plummer was gay.

Dotty Settler said...

Isn't CP a A list forever ?

joshg g said...

Blind said she was molested many times, Dushku mentions one night.

roxy said...

Plummer has a bad rep, too: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/christopher-plummer-kevin-spacey-memoir_us_5a15951fe4b03dec824975f2

J said...

TL;DR They tried to say that Plummer was exactly like Spacey but that reads more like he was just a blatant misogynist. Which is one rung higher up on the Moral Jenga stack.

However, I think a lot of these older hollywood folk have probably had "encounters" with underage people, which is why it's seemingly being ignored.

I am more concerned with this lower tier and thankfully, Dushku is helping the cause.

Did Dolores O’Roiden ever date an actor? She was in every movie soundtrack of the 90s.
