PATRICK MACNEE PASSES AWAY (1922 – 2015)
Reminisce with The New Avengers
Avengers star dies of natural causes
After a long and eventful career, Daniel Patrick MacNee has passed away of natural causes at age 93. Known for his star role in the original film and The New Avengers he also lived his life with risk and danger. Graduating from Eton college after almost being expelled for running a gambling ring, he decided to pursue his dreams by debuting in his first film as an extra when he was just 18! After serving in the Royal Army during WWII, MacNee recieved a scholarship from Webber Douglas School of Dramatic Art. He spent time in the USA and Canada building himself as an actor before he returned to England where he landed on some huge roles that took him towards fame. He played roles in film up until the late 90′s and then moved to recording audio books, before passing away from natural causes last night at his home in California.
We have a great title featuring MacNee, The New Avengers, in which he starred as Steed, the head of a British organisation. You can purchase the 8-disc collector’s edition for just $25.00!

MAN FROM COX’S RIVER STAR NOMINATED FOR PRIDE OF AUSTRALIA MEDAL
MAN SAVES 52 WILD HORSES FROM SLAUGHTER
Luke Carlon, one of the two key actors from The Man From Cox’s River, has been nominated for a medal for capturing and re-homing 52 wild horses Burragorang Valley on horseback for National Parks. The idea at first was to slaughter the brumbies but after hearing this, Luke decided to make the effort to capture and save them from the dark path they were going down.
The Pride of Australia Medal is one of News Corporation Australia’s most important community endeavours, playing a fundamental role as a vehicle to celebrate and acknowledge the remarkable contribution and achievements of members of the Australian community.
It took three years to round up the wild horses, after dealing with extreme heat, flash floods, kicking horses and biting snakes! Of course the brumbies haven’t been near the man made life so this made it even more of a challenge!
