Lenny Von Dohlen, Rest In Peace


Lenny Von Dohlen died July 5th at his Los Angeles home after a long illness. Everyone that worked with him or knew him had nothing but good things to say about him.

His sister, Catherine Von Dohlen, wrote this on her Facebook page: 

The world lost a magnificent man on July 5.
Brother Len was passionate about everything and everyone. He was always leading; whether it be a riveting conversation, an artistic creation, or a trip to new places. He loved a good laugh.
He continues on his spiritual journey.
Living life full in his memory.💕

No. Not Miles. My sweet Lenny. I can’t process this. It’s a bad dream. I loved you. So very much. One of the most beautiful souls on earth. Eyes of sparkling blue I shall never forget and the sound of your voice would tame the Lion. The last time we met he said “we were just babies!” And we were. Your calming nature made me feel like I was walking on a cloud and when I was unsure, he would place my face in his hands and tell me how excellent I was... I played for you Dohlen. #electricdreams you live on - together in Electric Dreams. I shall pop the “champers” for you. What a time we had.

Lenny was aware of this Electric Dreams fansite and Facebook page and was kind enough to answer some of my questions for this site and contribute to the bio page that I created for him. 

I still can't believe that he is gone.

We'll be together in Electric Dreams,

Films Featured in "Electric Dreams"

Films either featured in or referenced to in the movie "Electric Dreams". Sometimes filmmakers pay homage to classic cinema. So it should be no surprise that you'll find some in Steve Barron's movie "Electric Dreams". They're either featured in a scene or cleverly stitched together within a scene, helping with the storyline or for comedic effect. In order of appearance, you will find some examples below. There's a slight reference to the movie Alien (1979) in the scene when Miles was locked inside his apartment. The previous night, he installed a home security system on his apartment door that was monitored and controlled via his computer. By morning, he had forgotten all about it. And, being late for work, he had to recall the password. The scene in Alien that was referenced was after the character Dallas was killed. Ripley was then able to break through a “Science Officer Eyes Only” computer lockout, and communicate directly with Mothe
