    He milked that "Five Easy Pieces" sound drop with Karen Black and Jack Nicholson for more shows that I can count. Take some of that $500 million and help Karen with last chance against cancer.

    Karen Black is battling late-stage cancer. The actress, well known from such classic movies as “Five Easy Pieces†and “The Great Gatsby†(the Robert Redford version), has turned to online crowdfunding to keep her treatments going, in ways and places that insurance does not cover, reports Deadline Hollywood on Monday, March 25.
    “Crowdfunding†is a new term, that comes out of sites such as GoFundMe.com, where Karen Black has a page, put up by friends and family. “We have nothing left,†says her husband Stephen Eckelberry.
    The plea seems to be working. Her current need is $17,000 to fund a trip to Europe for specialized new treatments for her rare and deadly cancer. “And the European treatment is not covered by insurance,†Eckelberry goes on. But her page, up since March 14, has already collected more than $12,000.

    That's a fucking sin. Don't have enough money to treat your illness? You die.

    Obscene.

    The sound drop was from Carnal Knowledge with Jack and Anne Margaret.

    If you look at Karen's IMDB she has worked steady since 1959. Mostly in independent films her credits are extensive. I'm actually pretty shocked the Hollywood community hasn't helped her out. Unless your a total junkie or alcoholic there are a lot of generous people in the movie community.

    I saw her in one of those Rob Zombie movies a few years back. The best help Howard could offer is some advice about portion control.

    Or maybe refer her to Dr. Sarno so she can learn that her cancer is all in her head.

    I always thought that drop was from Five Easy Pieces. Howard has played this drop from Five Easy Pieces in any event

    THAT'S the great Republican-Capitalist America. If you were to help people out that couldn't afford treatment you are a communist/socialist/liberal fuckhead.:rolleye:

    As soon as I heard the name I thought it was the woman from Legally Blonde- turns out Karen Black was born in 1939 and Jennifer Coolidge was born in 1961, hmmm....there are some facial similarities though.
