RIP: Henry Gibson

Henry Gibson

I recently discovered the American actor Henry Gibson passed away last week aged 73. I thought I’d post a quick video of Henry Gibson as the wonderful Haven Hamilton in Robert Altman’s Nashville. Not only did Gibson turn out a staggering performance as Hamilton he actually wrote and performed several songs that featured in the film, including the hilarious “Keep  A-Goin” and the epic opener “200 Years” which you can watch below. 

Gibson featured in several other Altman pictures including The Long Goodbye, A Perfect Couple and HEALTH. You may also recognise him from The Blues Brothers where he played the Nazi guy. More recently Altman aficionado P.T. Anderson used Gibson as the facetious barfly in Magnolia. Keep A-Goin Henry.
