EDWARD ALBERT, ACTOR, DEAD AT 55

Actor Edward Albert, the only son of actors Eddie and Margo 
Albert, has died of lung cancer in Malibu, Calif., at age 55.
Albert's acting career took off in the 1970s after he starred 
in "Butterflies are Free" with Goldie Hawn. He starred with 
Liv Ullmann in the 1973 comedy "40 Carats" and went on to 
appear in more than 120 movies and TV shows including 
"Midway," "The Greek Tycoon," "The Ice Runner," "Guarding 
Tess," "Falcon Crest," "Dr. Quinn, Medicine "Woman" and "Port 
Charles." Albert was a dedicated environmental activist and 
worked with several groups including the California Coastal 
Commission and the state's Native American Heritage Commiss-
ion, The Times said. He spent most of the last 10 years 
caring for his father, who had Alzheimer's disease and died 
at age 99 last year, The Times said. Albert is survived by 
his wife, actress Kate Woodville; their daughter, Thais; and 
his sister, Maria Zucht.

ETTA BAKER, BLUES LEGEND, DEAD AT 93

Blues legend Etta Baker, died Saturday in Fairfax, Va., 
while visiting one of her daughters, at age 93. Baker -- a 
mother of nine -- was a master of the Piedmont blues, and 
used an unusual two-fingered picking style on the guitar , 
the Charlotte (N.C.) Observer reported Monday. Baker's old-
est daughter, Darlene Davis, said her mother died Saturday 
afternoon after traveling from her Morganton home to Fairfax, 
Va., to visit one of her other daughters who requires 
dialysis. She said her mother's health had been poor since 
the 1990s. "Mother's been up and down for the past couple of 
years, but she felt like she needed to be there with my 
sister," Davis said. "She embodied everything we love about 
the South," Tim Duffy, who worked with Baker through his 
Music Maker Relief Foundation, told the Raleigh (N.C.) News 
& Observer. Baker switched to banjo about a decade ago and 
had most recently performed about a month ago.

SVEN NYKVIST, LAUDED CINEMATOGRAPHER, DEAD AT 83

Oscar-winning cinematographer Sven Nykvist, who worked with 
Woody Allen and Ingmar Bergman, died this week at a Swedish 
nursing home at the age of 83. The Los Angeles Times said 
that the filmmaker, who won best cinematography Oscars for 
1973's "Cries and Whispers" and 1982's "Fanny and Alexander," 
died Wednesday in Sweden where he was being treated for 
aphasia. During his six-decade-long film career, Nykvist 
built a reputation for his ability to amplify an actor's 
emotions through the use of lighting and simplistic photo-
graphy, the Times said. "He maintained a style that appeared 
to be effortless. His work was extremely subtle," fellow 
cinematographer Robert Richardson told the newspaper. "His 
work was fundamental to cinematography," Richardson added. 
"It's a tremendous creative loss." The paper said that 
Nykvist is survived by his son, Carl-Gustaf, a daughter-in-
law, Helena Berlin, and two grandchildren.

CHARLES LARSON, TV WRITER/PRODUCER, DEAD AT 83

TV's "Sky King" and "The Lone Ranger" writer Charles Larson 
has died in Portland, Ore., at the age of 83. Larson began 
his Hollywood career as a messenger at MGM studios, cashing 
paychecks for acting legends such as Lionel Barrymore and 
hunting down stars such as Judy Garland when they were late, 
The (Portland) Oregonian said Sunday. He later became a 
studio screenwriter, writing shorts for features that ran 
before films. Larson was one of the original writers for 
Saturday morning fare as "The Lone Ranger" and "Sky King." 
During 1960s and 1970s, Larson was both a writer and producer 
of television shows such as "The Interns," "Cade's County" 
and "The F.B.I." Larson, who died Thursday, also enjoyed a 
career as a novelist, writing mysteries, including a Crime 
Club series called "Muir's Blood" and "Matthew's Hand." He 
is survived by his wife, Alice Larson.
