Thread Name: Obit: ‘Little’ Richard Penniman (1932-2020)
Subject: RE: Obit: ‘Little’ Richard Penniman (1932-2020)
Little Richard appeared as himself many times in various films and television programs - there was no point in writing a part for someone "like Little Richard" and casting him, because he was always himself and a different name or character was going to fool no one.

I am so sorry that his death was due to bone cancer—that is one really awful way to die.
