It’s Friday The 13th.
Rumor has it, today’s the day for bad luck — and it’s been that way for years — but today’s also a day for horror movie fans to celebrate a franchise with a dozen films and the iconic Jason Voorhees.
But if you want an autograph from Kane Hodder, the first person to play “Jason” in more than one Friday The 13th film, well, you have limited options.
“The Raging Bull” has died.
Jake LaMotta, a member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame after a lengthy career that included an 83-19-4 record, was 95 years old. He famously fought — and defeated — Sugar Ray Robinson in 1942 and his memoir inspired Martin Scorsese’s 1980 film Raging Bull where he was played by Robert DeNiro.
Despite boxing not having a regularly occurring trading card presence, LaMotta could be found in a number of sets throughout the years.
Jerry Lewis was more than a comedian, but that’s where he made his mark first — well before he was remembered for his charitable efforts.
After he was The Nutty Professor he helped raise more than $2 billion in Labor Day marathons for the Muscular Dystrophy Association — just part of his life’s story that included decades in entertainment.
But the star who died at age 91 this weekend was a star found on cardboard in recent years, too.
