How come the scene from Absence of Malice where he became a "star" in not available in its entirety on line? Just a great 5 minutes.

Even if they are all true, people with grace generally have enough self discipline to avoid dancing on one's grave.
I think in general, it's bad form to air dirty laundry at a person's death. Virtually every Hollywood obituary would be a mess, because almost all of them have an ugly side.

I agree with that. I just made an exception for a cockfighting proponent with a mean reputation. I could have waited.
