I found out he was from Weatherford, Tx when I lived in Fort Worth for a few years in the 80s. His mother was Mary Martin who played Peter Pan in the TV version (1960). There’s a statue of her as Peter Pan in downtown Weatherford. Hagman also played an interpreter to President (Fonda) in the movie Fail-Safe (1964).
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.
I remember Mary Martin for South Pacific. She was a heck of a talent.
