The last of the Husbands is gone.
Weird. Earlier today I posted how much I missed John even though I never met him. He died on February 3, 1989. And now, 23 years later, Ben is gone. I did get a chance to meet him, although very briefly. After his Q&A at the Cassavetes retrospective at the Cinefamily last March, I fought my way through his other fans just to shake his hand and thank him for his work. He was very gracious.
Tonight I will post the video of that Q &A for you to enjoy and remember them both as the great artists that they were.
