Among his movies were "Mighty Joe Young" (1949), "Twenty Million Miles to Earth" (1957), "One Million Years B.C." (1966) and the original "Clash of the Titans" (1980). [ComingSoon.net]

• Margaret Groening died in Portland, Ore., at the age of 94. She was the mother of Matt Groening, creator of "The Simpsons," so you'll find some familiar Springfield names in her obituary, from her maiden name (Wiggum) to the names of her kids (including daughters Maggie and Lisa). [Gawker]
