Have only just learnt about franks death. I worked for. Frank and Polly In London when he was filming Cool Hand Luke. My heart felt condolences to Polly, Mike and Evie.
So sorry Helene for your loss. Fond memories. I lost Victor in 2008. Wish you peace.
I worked with Frank on "Soldier's Girl", and it was an honor. He was a straight shooter, and a breath of fresh air. Rest in Peace Frank, glad I got to know you for a short while.
We never knew Mr. Pierson but his character creations and their seemingly innocuous lines have endured through 4 generations of this family...my adult children still cringe when we suggest they "Spend a night in the box" and I have often been corrected by my film-editor son and film-critic son-in-law: "Dad - not A failure to communicate, just failure to communicate...get it?" Now when we discover Mr. Pierson consulted on MM and TGW, we know why these shows are top-rated. Thank you, Sir, for providing us brilliant and beautiful moments. Condolences to the family...Frank Pierson will not be forgotten.
My husband can watch " Cool Hand Luke " over and over everytime its on....R.I.P. our Condolences to your family....
Our thoughts and prayers are with Frank Pierson's family, friends, and fans. We can all look forward to a time when there will no longer be announcements of death and tears of sorrow will be no more.
