Well noted, Steve.

We've lost a great writer, and by all accounts a kind, funny, interesting man. Never too many of those to let their passing go unremarked.

Rest well, Alan - Sincere thanks for your life's work. Well done.

To anyone reading: While i'm not familiar with ALL of his work (long career), be sure to - at minimum - check out 'Last of the Blonde Bombshells' and 'Joe Madison's War'. Great films with great characters.
