This is exactly why Heath never wanted to be a celebrity. He must be swearing a blue streak right now, UP THERE IN HEAVEN.

I'd prefer to think Heath and Bobby Fisher are enjoying a quiet game of chess.

Now that thought makes me feel better...

isnt it the film "The Seventh Seal" that has Death playing chess with the protagonist ?
“Mr. Coyote always gets me good, boy,”  Ellery said, winking.  “Almost forgot what life was like before I got me my own personal coyote.”

Yup!

Here's a great Dutch parody of that scene....

In the Seventh Seal, a Knight plays a game of chess against Death for his life.

Ang Lee was a fan of Bergman and provided commentary for the Criterion release of "The Virgin Spring."

Heath starred in "A Knight's Tale," and in his personal life (by what I've read) enjoyed playing chess daily.  His father mentioned his love for chess when speaking with the press. 

Heath was preparing for his directorial debut with "The Queen's Gambit."

Bobby Fisher recently passed away.

Ingmar Bergman passed away a few months ago.

Heath once said there were several directors he would like to work with, but that some of them were dead.

I think of him looking down and telling those vultures "for f**k's sake, get a f**king life and leave my loved ones the f**k alone!" That's my Heath!

Oh, and there were several hilarious parodies of that scene in "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey." They played everything from Twister to Battleship.
