Actor James Bacon (b.1914) died on September 18. Not to be confused with the Irish SF fan, Bacon appeared in all five Planet of the Apes films, usually as an ape, although he portrayed a human, General Faulkner, in Escape from the Planet of the Apes. Bacon, who primarily made his living as a journalist, also had minor roles in the films Capricorn 1 and Meteor.
