Thomas Ince was one of the pioneers of American cinema. He was a director, producer and writer, one of the first to use a script for his films. A contemporary of D.W. Griffith, and a mentor to Francis and John Ford, Jack Conway, William Desmond Taylor, and Henry King. He began, like most film makers of the early 1900s, in New York, later moving to Southern California, where in 1912 he established the 1st modern film studio, Inceville. After a fire in 1916, he sold the studio to William S. Hart, who Ince discovered in 1914. Later he teamed up with Mack Sennett and Griffith to form the Triangle Motion Picture Company, with it's studio in Culver City (later the home of MGM, and today the home of Sony Pictures). He produced 169 films, directing 163 of them, between 1911 and 1925. He died aboard William Randolph Hearst's yacht. A heart attack is what was ruled he official cause of death, although some have claimed that Hearst shot and killed Ince in a dispute over Marion Davies.

Also today:

Jonathan Harris (1914-2004) is best remembered for the role of the cowardly villain Dr. Zachary Smith on Lost in Space, as well as Michael Remy's assistant Bradford Webster on The Third Man. He made appearances on Zorro, Bonanza, The Outlaws, The Twilight Zone, and Land of the Giants, and in from the late '70s to his death he did voice acting. He died from a blood clot to his heart 3 days before his 88th birthday.
