I literally just watched "The Spell of Tut" on Saturday and for a moment it crossed my mind that only Burt and Sid were still with us from the notable cast.

He will be missed!

Marianna Hill is still with us, too. Two years ago, she spoke with Me-TV about her appearances on various '60s shows, including "Batman."

Sid Haig and Jill St. John are also the only people to have done "Batman" and appeared in a James Bond movie ("Diamonds Are Forever."

Holy myopia, that was Haig who tells Bond, "I got a brudder" in DAF! How did I never notice that before?

I remember him best as Master of the Thralls in Star Trek's "Gamesters of Triskelion " episode, and the recurring, Ming-like villain on "Jason but f Star Command."

Sorry to hear he's passed. One of the great "heavies" of my childhood .

That was Joseph Ruskin. Haig's only Star Trek appearance was as the First Lawgiver in "The Return of the Archons."

Ah well, they do say memory's the second thing to go.

Can't recall what the first was.

This is one of those real downers for me. I was a huge Sid Haig fan. He was in both my all-time favorite TV series - Batman - and my all-time favorite Bond film - Diamonds Are Forever. I watched him in so many other things that are too numerous to mention. if anyone is unfamiliar I suggest IMDB and be prepared for some mouse-wheeling.

The age of Hollywood and its once pool of legendary talent is quickly withering away.

That's awesome! Thanks for the insight. I was honestly under the impression that she had passed over a decade ago.

This got me wondering how many of the henchmolls are still with us, so I did some research. There were some of whom I could find no information, but I'm pleased to report that many of them are still living. Terry Moore and Monique Van Vooren both are in their 90s now; the remainder are in their 70s or 80s. In addition to Terry, Monique and Marianna Hill, the others -- in no particular order -- are June Wilkinson, Pat Becker, Kathy Kersh, Marilyn Hanold, Sharyn Wynters, Inga Neilsen, Angela Dorian, Leslie Parrish, Jane Wald, Valeri Kairys, Tisha Sterling, Diane McBain, Eileen O'Neill, Sivi Aberg, Gail Hire, Linda Gaye Scott, Susan Silo, Ziva Rodann, Joan Staley, Sherry Jackson, Jean Hale, Nancy Kovack, Edy Williams, Stacey Maxwell, Donna Loren and Jill St. John. Those that I couldn't find any information about are Yvonne Arnett, Leslie Perkins, Aleta Rotell, Nannette Turner and Lynley Laurence.

Sid played the boss of the Haunted House nightclub in the 1967 "beach" movie "It's bikini world." It was a real club on Hollywood Boulevard, it seems.
