^^^

Fritz, I found a couple postings online from last year where they said they saw it. I tried using google street view to look, but there's a truck obstructing the view, wouldn't you know? There's a newish restaurant that opened there called Tesse and I saw two exterior photos, one day, one night, that seem to indicate it was replaced and located in between the two new buildings where the Dino's port cochere would've been, where Kookie parked the cars. From those photos, though, I can't really get my exact bearings direction-wise, but the important thing is that it is there!



See the lower right corner? That looks to be it!  :D

"...snap...snap..."

Great! Thanks!

Buck Henry Dies at 89


I didn't recognize his name, but after reading the article, you can see how influential he was.  Thanks for the link!

I thought that Buck Henry was gay, probably because a character he played in The Man Who Fell to Earth was, but apparently not.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that Robert Conrad, of Wild, Wild West fame, died last Saturday, Feb. 8, at age 84.

I  just saw posted on Facebook that Ja'net Dubois was found dead today.

She was 74, and best known for playing neighbor Willona Woods on "Good Times".

Sad news.  :(

MeTV continues to show "new" episodes of Wagon Train. Carolyn Jones was the guest star in this morning's episode, first broadcast in November 1961. Afterward I was paging through my episode guide and discovered something I hadn't known before: Bette Davis guested in at least three episodes, not just the two I knew about. So Davis appeared in "The Ella Lindstrom Story" (Feb. 1959), "The Elizabeth McQueeny Story" (Oct. 1959), and "The Bettina May Story" (Dec. 1961).

I need to see if I can find the episode guide on line again, and this time copy it into a searchable document. It might be nice to who else made multiple guest appearances. (I'm sure Ann Blyth appeared at least twice).

I came across the tail end of an episode of Laredo yesterday that it appears Eve Arden was in.

That would have been something, to see Even Arden in a Western. I had  a crush on Peter Brown, except I didn't know that's what it was. Same deal with Kent McCord on Adam-12.

I did a quick look-up of Peter Brown (died 3/21/16). I was interested to learn that while he played Deputy Johnny McKay on Lawman, (1958-1962), he made "guest appearances" playing the same role in episodes of Sugarfoot (1959) and Maverick (1960).

Is it just me?

Did guys really wear pink shirts in the west?  Seems every western TV series has guys in pink shirts. (Doug McClure on The Virginian usually had a royal blue one.)

A few examples:
