Alice Herz-Sommer lived an extraordinary life.

The 110-year-old passed away on Sunday of natural causes over 68 years after being liberated from a Nazi concentration camp, making her the oldest known survivor of the Holocaust.

The pianist said that listening to and playing music carried her through the horrors of the war and safely to the other side.

Alice's story is so remarkable, she was the subject of both a book A Century of Wisdom: Lessons from the Life of Alice Herz-Sommer, The World's Oldest Living Holocaust Survivor and a documentary short The Lady In Number 6: Music Saved My Life, which is nominated for an Oscar this Sunday.

We're just glad she lived long enough to see how her story touched people so deeply.

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

Oscar Nominee Michael Clarke Duncan passed away this morning.

The celebrated actor of films such as The Green Mile and Armageddon was only 54 years old.

The actor was staying at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he was being treated for a heart attack.

According to a statement the hulking actor had "suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered."

Here was what his rep also said:

"[Omarosa] Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date."

Duncan had been nominated for a Best Supporting Oscar for his performance in the movie The Green Mile and had appeared in several blockbuster films since then.

Rest in peace, big guy. You'll be missed.

P.S. Check out some pics of the late actor (below).

Watch Brad Pitt Killing Them Softly In New Trailer

Filed under: Brad PittFilm Flickers

The greaser look isn't that attractive, but for some magical reason, Brad Pitt pulls it off!

Along with the slick hair, it looks like he pulls off a pretty good role as a hitman in the upcoming crime drama, Killing Them Softly.

Pitt plays an enforcer who investigates a sloppy heist during a mob-protected poker game and from what we can tell from the trailer (above), he doesn't have too much trouble finding the guy.

At least the guilty parties are going to get offed by one of the hottest men to ever grace the screen!

Pitt's good looks aren't the only thing this movie has to offer though. Killing Them Softly features organized crime veterans like Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini as well as the talented, yet relatively unknown Scoot McNairy. Let's not forget Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins either!
