    Annual Video Memorial Also Features Leslie Nielsen, Claude Chabrol, Lena Horne & Many MoreEvery December, the great Turner Classic Movies -- pretty much the sole reason this writer holds on to cable TV -- puts together a video tribute of all the tremendous talents in film we've lost that year, respectfully remembering all those dearly departed greats; from iconic actors, to lesser-known writers and producers to titan directors of cinema, it's not unlike the annual Oscar tribute.
