Fred Knittle, 83, died Thursday, January 1, 2009 at Cooley Dickinson Hospital. He is one of the most memorable characters from Stephen Walker’s wonderful film ‘Young@Heart’. This film is a heartwarming and humane documentary which follows the Young@Heart chorus, a group of Massachusetts senior citizens who thrill audiences worldwide with their unusual – and unusually poignant – covers of rock songs.

I saw it today at Rialto and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
