RIP: John Saxon

John Saxon from Enter the Dragon

John Saxon has died from pneumonia at the age of 83.

He’s probably best known among genre fans as Nancy’s father from the Nightmare on Elm Street series but he was in scads of roles, including Enter the Dragon, the original Black Christmas, the MST3K favorite Mitchell, Battle Beyond the Stars, and Blood Beach

Speaking of Dragon, here’s him telling a story about Bruce Lee.

Thanks for everything, Mr. Saxon. Rest well.
