CDA: Sid Haig

September 24, 2019

My friend Rubén texted me this morning about the death of Sid Haig.  We had just seen his final screen appearance last week, *3 From Hell.*  We're big fans of director Rob Zombie, and this was the last film in a trilogy: *House of 1000 Corpses,* *The Devil's Rejects,* and *3 From Hell.*

 

I first saw Haig in *Jackie Brown,* though his part was so small I didn't notice him!  He played the judge who sentences Jackie, he had less than two minutes onscreen.  I read somewhere at the time that Tarantino cast him because he had loved his work in a number of movies with Pam Grier.  Here's a clip of the two of them in *Foxy Brown.*  Beware of all these clips if you're not into salty language and offensive suggestions!

 

 

Zombie cast him in a major role in *House of 1000 Corpses* and Tarantino gave him a cameo in *Kill Bill Vol. 2.*  He was an American original.  Here's a little tribute to him:
