LORENZO SEMPLE, JR - SENIOR SCRIPTWRITER
Hollywood scriptwriter Lorenzo Semple Jr has died at the age of 91. He wrote a few of my favourite things: For the 60s television series, the wonderful Batman; and the feature films Papillon (an absolute fave with all its emotional notes) 1973, and King Kong of 1976 (which I treated Mr Semple's involvement, here).
It's always sad to hear when someone of note, or anyone, for that matter, passes on but when a person such as Lorenzo Semple lives a nice long life, plus survives that beastly town (hint: L.A.), that is impressive.
