Every December, Turner Classic Movies produces a lovely montage honoring the actors and filmmakers who died that year, and here's the one for 2008. Apparently they released it around Dec. 10, then updated it to include Van Johnson, who died Dec. 15, but now it's incomplete again because Eartha Kitt died. Maybe they should wait until the year's actually over? I'm just sayin'.

Anyway, TCM's montages are always classy and elegant, putting the ones at the Academy Awards to shame. If you're interested, you can see previous years' montages here: 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003.

And now here's 2008. The song is "God Only Knows," by Joe Henry, from his 2007 album Civilians.
