Solomon was watching the Academy Awards ceremony Sunday night at his Sacramento-area home when he apparently had a heart attack, said his son, Michael Solomon.

“Ironically, he was giving his opinion of what someone was wearing that he thought was ugly, then asked (his wife) Patti to to refill his whisky,” Solomon said. When she returned, he had died. Via Sacramento Bee
