TCM ACTOR PASSES AWAY
We find it sad when someone that most horror fans could recognize in a second disappears into obscurity and isn?t heard from again until his or her death is announced.
Such is the case with Paul A. Partain, best known for his turn as the wheelchair-bound Franklin in Tobe Hooper?s original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, who passed away this past weekend at the age of 58 after a long battle with cancer.
He had made his living in sales, which explains why we hadn?t heard from him a while, but loved to meet fans who recognized him as the only victim of Leatherface?s chainsaw in the movie.
Memorial donations may be mailed directly to the American Cancer Society.
