MovieQuiz 974 (open for 100 points)


I've just been informed that Pasco Meisner has died this summer.
He died peacefully in his sleep during his summer holiday.

Jean Reynard, which his real name was, has been a very committed quizzer at this MovieQuiz weblog and was with us already from the beginning; he's been at position #2 in the Hall of Fame for as long as I can remember. He and I exchanged quite a lot of personal e-mails and considered each other as friends. Jean's love for - and knowledge of - cinema was impressive. His special love was for Asian cinema and he admired scores of Ennio Morricone. Jean worked as a writer for French tv movies and tv series and about his dreams he recently told me "maybe one day I will make the big jump to the big screen". How sad he never made that jump but made this giant leap instead.

Pasco Meisner was only 44 years old and leaves behind a wife and two daughters.

Jean: I miss you. We all do.
Bon Voyage.


"Those who die young have achieved a kind of immortality.
And we love them all the more for it.
They won't get old or fat.
They won't get sick or feeble.
They are beyond fear.
They are forever young.
They are gods."
