Wayne Newton was also in a couple of episodes of Bonanza, playing a kid

who liked to sing but his pappy was against it. Something a little strange

about the whole thing. And that hairdo. Yikes.

I remember him doing a Lucy show. A farmboy who sings Lucy discovers. But he chokes up in the studio, until Lucy, gives it that barnlike touch. GAG!!! Even as a kid, I thought it dumb!

Sad. What is it with the Cole family? They seem to have short life spans.......I guess she lived longer than some of the others......

Maybe she thought the haystacks would give a reverb effect. Yeah, a lot of

those old sitcom plots were pretty out there. ( I would have loved to see

Freddy Mertz' reaction to Wayne Newton). Then in the mid 1960s they would

try to work a British invasion band, real or made up,  into the plot along with a

"funny" band name. The Electric Toothbrushes.

This was when Lucy moved to  Hollywood and was solo (no Ricky, Fred or Ethel!) Yeah, that invasion band plot was used in a lot of sitcoms. i remember a Patty Duke one with Chad and Jeremy. Or was it Peter and Gordon? LOL.

Olivia Cole, who won an Emmy Award for her performance in "Roots," wasn't related to the family of Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole.

And then there was the episode of "The Mothers-In-Law" -- produced by Desi Arnaz -- in which The Seeds appeared as a rock group called The Warts. It's worth watching just because Deborah Walley dances in it!

A trio of movie-related deaths recently:

Edward M. Abroms (May 6, 1935 - February 13, 2018) - Film and television editor. His career began in TV in the late 1960's on such shows as Tarzan and Ironside. He worked on a number of films, including The Sugarland Express (1974), The Osterman Weekend (1983), Cohen and Tate (1988), and Street Fighter (1994). He received an Oscar nomination for his editing on 1983's Blue Thunder.

Pier Paolo Capponi (June 9, 1938 - February 15, 2018) - Italian actor who was most prolific during the 1960's and 70's. He appeared in King of Hearts (1966), Black Jesus (1968), Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion (1970), The Cat O' Nine Tails (1971), Seven Blood-Stained Orchids (1972), and Farinelli (1994).

Lassie Lou Ahern (June 25, 1920 - February 15, 2018) - American child actress during the silent era who appeared in some of the Our Gang silent shorts. She gained much notice for her role in Uncle Tom's Cabin (1927), although she abruptly quit films until the early 1940's, when she took a few bit parts and extra work. She had one last, short burst of activity on TV in the early 1970s.

Wow! I had just been wondering about him because of this tweet from Alan Alda yesterday:

I always try to let go of the past but this I can't let go of. This article by Marc Freeman brought back M*A*SH memories we http://ow.ly/29gF30iJee0  can't forget. After more than 35 years.

To me though always felt Stiers was very dull & preferred Larry "Frank Burns" Linville a lot more than him on the all-timer "M*A*S*H"   Often forget that *Duvall was the original Frank Burns.  *"The woodman" Woody allen liked Stiers though & cast him, in a couple of his flix, most notable the only fair (**1/2) 2001 release "Curse of the Jade Scorpian" ($13m.)

Weird & I always thought the vastly underrated 1978 comedy & *Bogey homage "The Cheap Detective" (***1/2) deserved more attention, but simply can't remember him in that Neil Simon pic?  & on that note, years ago on these forums I did a large pc about "A *BOGEY & FILM NOIR FILM FESTIVAL" & of course that film was included, along with 1982's terrific & also underrated comedy "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" &^ the just ok (**1/2) "Man With Bogart's Face" from 1980.

Speaking of upcoming *Academy Awards & saw "Sugarland Express" (3 & 1/2) *Goldie's far & away finest acting hour & was robbed of another nomination!

The last I heard Wayne Newton had taken over the USO as a promise to Bob Hope on his Deathbed. And Wayne is still knocking them dead in Vegas.

As for Vic Damone, it was very tragic about Pier, but weirdly enough he had another  wife,  a non-pro, who also committed suicide.

His other famous wife, Diahann Carroll-- the singer and star of Dynasty, did not commit suicide. Since they were both such great singers, I heard they used to do a Steve & Eydie act on cruise ships. I wish I could have seen that.
