Paddington, I Hardly Knew You

This photo was the first thing I saw when I clicked on The Hollywood Reporter obituaries page this morning.

My first thought, "Paddington Bear is dead?"

Of course not, it is the creator of Paddington Bear, Michael Bond, who died. The Hollywood Reporter does this a lot- putting up a photo connected in someway to the deceased if they cannot find a photo of the person who has died. If you scroll down on the main obituaries page you will find a photo of eight people, one of them being Bob Hope, on the obituary for ex-child actor Paul De Rolf.  Which one is Paul?  Don't know,  The Hollywood Reporter doesn't tell us.  My favorite WTH? photo was the one used when Lawrence Montaigne died.  Montaigne was the actor who nearly replaced Leonard Nimoy  as Mr. Spock when Nimoy was thinking of leaving Star Trek between the first and second seasons.  Whose photo was  used in the article?  Yep, Leonard Nimoy.   Is it really that hard to find an actual photo of the person who died,  Hollywood Reporter?
