25. From pneumonia which set in following his back surgery.

Sometimes general anesthesia causes "wet lung" which can lead to pneumonia.

6. Only 72, that's sad.

He was great in Home Alone but he was in a lot of good movies: Awakenings, Pelican Brief, Milagro Beanfield Wars, In the Line of Fire...

11. I think my favorite was the movie "Mindwalk"

with Liv Ullmann and Sam Waterston. It was one of those little known movies that was fascinating, mostly insightful dialogue.

I know Heard is not a terribly well known actor, but I've been following him for many years. This is truly sad.
