It’s really a dream while I was in the shower!
I am probably wrong but back in the 60s I was visiting my Sister in Ft. Walton Bch. FL and happened to see two girls in bikinis walk by on the sidewalk.
They were both pretty but one was gorgeous. I still remember her face and figure. Later when Dallas came on I swore that Victoria Principal was the girl I had seen.
Was Hagman a commie? Most in Hollywood are.
As a kid, I loved watching “I Dream of Jeannie”
Agreed. RIP, Major Nelson.
what’s appropos about 4:20? What’s the story there?
I know Barbara Eden is a major lib. Too bad.
He was on I Dream of Jeanie, right??
One of the dumbest shows ever. Ranks up there with Bewitched, McHales Navy, The Munsters, and Hogans Heroes. (like Sgt. Schultz, though)
But Larry was left of Jim, a liberal of the old Progressive v. Conservative wing of the Texas Democrat one-Party division of the early 1950's.
Wright himself and the radical left of his own latter Party deserve far more credit for the fall of Wright in 1989 than Newt can factually every dream of.
Hagman wasn't nearly as vociferous in his a**holery after getting the new liver. But he was still a loud and proud Molly Ivins-type mocking old Texas lefty.
Yep. Mary Crosby played his sister-in-law and shooter Kristin Shepard.
Am I too late to say: I thought he was dead?
Damn, what a shame. He was one of those actors that breathed actual life into his character. And I really like that Linda Gray and others from “Dallas” have stayed together as such a close groups of friends after the original series ended.
I guess John Ross is really on his own, now....
RIP JR, for real.
Gorgeous enough that The Voice even had his hook(s) into her for a very, very ‘Brief Episode’ back in the early ‘70’s.
what’s appropos about 4:20? What’s the story there?
One of the great character actors of all time. Played JR to the hilt, no one could’ve done it better.
Has anyone posted yet: “Never heard of him”?
You were truly one of a kind; my entire family enjoyed your presence on tv.
Farewell Mr. Hagman. And we thank you.
The Munsters? C’mon. What’s wrong with The Munsters?
I recall the first time I watched Dallas (hadn’t much interest at that point) and wondered “where have I seen that guy before”? Not sure how long it took me to remember but wow, what a revelation, the roles were so different.
He got the good TV roles.
I Dream of Jeannie and Dallas.
Surprised to learn he was 81.
He was absolutely still a great villan in the new Dallas. Wonder what is in store for that now that he is gone? He made both Dallas shows in my opinion. I love to hear that Dallas Music too.
“the term 420 originated at San Rafael High School, in 1971, among a group of about a dozen pot-smoking wiseacres who called themselves the Waldos, who are now pushing 50. The term was shorthand for the time of day the group would meet, at the campus statue of Louis Pasteur, to smoke pot. Intent on developing their own discreet language, they made 420 code for a time to get high, and its use spread among members of an entire generation.”
Haven’t watched the new program. Was hoping that the archvillainess Katherine Wentworth character(played by beautiful conservative, pro-Tea Party actress Morgan Brittany) would return to battle J.R. and I might tune in but I can’t picture “Dallas” without Hagman.
Even the cars?
That's funny....because when Lovejoy Mysteries started airing on A&E back in the 90's, I wondered where I'd seen that Ian McShane guy before, and of course, the answer was, "Dallas."
On June 29, 2012, TNT renewed Dallas for a second season consisting of 15 episodes, slated to premiere January 28, 2013.
I think it has to do with some ritual at some college where every 4/20 at 4:20 pm a ton of kids get together in a field and spark up weed.
And the worst of the worst? ‘Car 54 Where Are You’ That was the “Plan 9 From Outer Space” of the sitcoms.
Yeh well, they are right in the middle of Cliff Barnes’ daughter or grand daughter (not sure which) helping Cliff to get even with the Ewing family.
I haven’t been able to watch it regularly, but the shows I have seen were pretty good. Especially the scenes with JR. They had one of those behind the scenes interviews the other day, and Linda Gray played a big part in helping him to get well enough to be able to be on the New Dallas.
That was practice for The Munsters. You seem to know a lot about crappy TV. You’ve probably seen every episode many times, just to remind yourself how bad they are.
I remember the theme song from Car 54!
I think she’s supposed to be Cliff’s daughter that he had with Afton Cooper. Hagman and Linda Gray definitely had a great chemistry together. To me, “Dallas” was never the same when J.R. was without Sue Ellen and Bobby was without Pam. The two couples provided the spice and sugar, respectively, it needed to work IMHO.
This is a recent interview with Morgan Brittany discussing being a conservative in Hollywood-
What a life! He was an astronaut who was married to a genie (they wed in final season) and his Mom (Mary Martin) was Peter Pan! :-)
I remember some chick with weird silicone’d out lips, that might have been that Crosby one. Creepy mouth........
He was in a early to mid 70s made for TV movie, don't remember the title, about a group of people planing a heist. The line that still sticks with me for decades ( not sure if it was Hagman’s character who said it ) was “necessity's the mother.”
Hagman was the only character/actor to appear in every episode of the original Dallas series. He was the reason the show was as success. I’ve watched a few episodes with the wife. Hagman was perfect for the part.
so long Cousin Tony,
btw...she was the one who shot JR.
In honor of the memory of Mr. Hagman’s passing, my favorite episode of IDOJ-
It’s the one where his buddy Rog learns the truth about Jeannie, takes the bottle and becomes her new master and gets in more trouble than he expected.
He also had a small role in 1978’s “Superman: The Movie.”
I just saw him on my dad’s AARP mag...
I remember Mary Martin for South Pacific. She was a heck of a talent.
