Rudy Ray Moore, one of the pioneers of blaxpoitation films, has died from complications from diabetes. He was 81.
One of Moore's most memorable movies is "Dolemite," a film he self-produced about one of the most beloved characters from his stand-up acts.

"Marley & Me" is a bestselling autobiographical book by American journalist John Grogan. Told in first-person narrative, the book portrays Grogan and his family's life during the thirteen years that they lived with their Labrador Retriever, Marley, and the relationships and lessons from this period.
