    The good thing is that they lived long lives and seemed like wonderful people. These folks were a classy bunch! Unlike some of today's stars!

    That makes the entire original cast of GUNSMOKE dead and gone.

    This week has not been good to iconic 1950s television actors.

    I had forgotten he was in Gentle Ben. I watched that in its original run.

    I met Dennis Weaver once in an ice cream shop in Montrose, CA (LA suburb). It would have been in the late 70s and I was just a teenager. I remember thinking he was handsome in that cowboy kind of way.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Weaver.

    My thoughts exactly, I find it quite poignant. I liked all 3 and they were such a part of TV-land for all of us, and yes, class acts, all of them! Wow, life marches on, doesn't it?

    That's weird - so many at 81. Conincidently, my father just died Feb. 12 at 81. He was famous around here anyway. ;)
