The librarian of Shawshank dies

James Whitmore has died of lung cancer. He was 87. He plays the librarian in my favorite movie, The Shawshank Redemption. He was also in the cast of the original Planet of the Apes, as the head of the simian assembly. But he was nominated for best actor in a leading role for Give ’em Hell Harry. He plays President Harry Truman in that movie.
