So many people pass away every year, including in the entertainment industry, that it’s hard to remember just who died, beyond the few very famous people. Turner Classic Movies has a nice montage that helps us remember the talents we’ve lost in 2011. 

Sure, the big names are here, people like Elizabeth Taylor and Peter Falk, but TCM also remembers the character actors and directors and writers that passed away too, like Len Lesser (Uncle Leo from ‘Seinfeld’), actress Betty Garrett, and composer John Barry.

Did TCM forget anyone?  Check out the montage, with music supplied by OK Sweetheart, and let us know in the comments.
