    I didn't realize he was that old. I remember him more from his later series, such as McCloud and Kentucky Jones.
    RIP Dennis. You did good.

    Well, I guess all the other 80-year old actors are now breathing a sigh of relief.

          Anyone else remember another TV series that Weaver starred in called "Gentle Ben"? It was on CBS in the late 60's.

          He played a game warden in the Florida Everglades, and his son (played by Ronny Howard's brother Clint) had a pet bear.

          A couple of years later, he was "McCloud" part of the NBC Sunday Mystery Movie along with Columbo and and McMillan and Wife.

          I remember Weaver serving for a long time as the commercial spokesman for Great Western Savings, a now-defunct Caifornia bank. John Wayne did those commercials before him.

          Thank you.
          God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
