Goodbye, Gunnar Hansen

(March 4, 1947 – November 7, 2015)

The original Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s 1974 Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Gunnar Hansen passed away Saturday from pancreatic cancer. I was privileged to meet Hansen a few years ago in Lexington, Kentucky, as he introduced a midnight screening of the 1974 classic and took questions from the audience.
