Actor, writer and film historian Jimmy Bangley died Dec. 10, in Hollywood after a brief illness. He was 48.

Bangley came to Hollywood in 1975 and appeared in dozens of plays including cult favorite “Bob’s Office Party” and, last summer, “An Enemy of the People.”

He made more than 100 television appearances as both an actor and a film historian. His most recent part was a featured role in the Faye Dunaway-directed “Yellow Bird,” and he had been cast in her upcoming version of “Master Class.”

Bangley’s articles on film history appeared in a variety of magazines. He was working on a book on silent film star Barbara LaMarr at the time of his death.

He is survived by his parents, a brother and a sister.

A memorial service will be held at noon Jan. 8, at the chapel of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd.
