    RIP Mr Morgan

    http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment...-6/?test=faces


    Emmy-winning character actor Harry Morgan, whose portrayal of the fatherly Col. Potter on television's "M*A*S*H" highlighted a show business career that included nine other TV series, 50 films and the Broadway stage, died Wednesday. He was 96.

    His daughter-in-law, Beth Morgan, told The Associated Press the actor died at his home in Brentwood, California, after having pneumonia.

    Wow Sarge-another great one gone.

    He was 96 though and therefore cannot be said to have gone too early.

    R.I.P. Mr.Morgan, you brought a lot of enjoyment to a lot of people.

    Wow. 96. That's a good run.

    Even so, it's a little sad. I grew up watching Col. Potter. He was like a cranky uncle you couldn't help but look forward to seeing.

    Default Rest in Peace Col. Potter

    http://www.npr.org/2011/12/07/143296...medium=twitter

    One of television's most beloved commanding officers died Wednesday. Harry Morgan, who played Col. Sherman Potter on M*A*S*H, brought an avuncular authority to a show about the absurdities and horrors of war. He was 96.

    ---------------------

    One of the great shows and a great actor. Harry was part of two really iconic shows in TV history... Dragnet and M*A*S*H... both were the tops of their day.

    Thanks for the laughs.

    feel free to delete the thread. I somehow missed that Sarge had already started one.

    M*A*S*H and Dragnet... Harry Morgan were in two of the real iconic shows in TV history.

    Good solid actor, a craftsman who had a tough role as Col Potter, but pulled it off really adeptly. Strength, grace, humor and compassion all in a tough as nails character.

    I loved him in the role, even if he had earlier been on the show as a general. His role after Col. Blake was written and performed brilliantly. I remember seeing him in a few other series and always thought he was a sollid actor. It's hard watching so many of the actors from series I loved as a kid die, and Mash was a show my family watched religously.
