Director Bob Clark and Son Die in Car Accident
Director Bob Clark, 66, and his 22-year-old son died in Pacific Palisades, California after their car was struck by a drunk driver. Clark's most popular movies include A Christmas Story, Black Christmas, and Porky's.
Scott Schwartz, who played Flick in "A Christmas Story" and kept in touch with Clark, said to AP Clark was one of the "nicest, sweetest guys that you'd ever want to come in contact with." "It's a tragic day for all of us who knew and loved Bob Clark," Schwartz said. "Bob was a fun-loving, jelly-roll kind of guy who will be sorely missed."
