    Oh.

    Alex Karras.

    Wow.

    I remember and loved him in "Blazing Saddles", "Webster" and --- particularly --- the TV movie "Babe", with his wife.

    He seemed such a sweet, happy bear of a good guy.

    RIP, Alex.

    Did you guys know that Sherman Hemsley's ('George Jefferson') body has not been buried yet?? What is with people fighting over the remains?

    ME TOO!!!!!!!!

    He was HILARIOUS!!

    I just KNOW that's got to be on DVD. If it is, I'd sure like to get it. I don't know if the TV movie "Babe" is, or has ever been. I'll need to check on that one, too.

    I loved Alex Karras in Blazing Saddles and in Babe. He and Susan Clark met while they were filming Babe, which is a film well worth seeing in my opinion. Babe Didrikson was before my time, but I've seen enough about her to believe she was the greatest female athlete of all time. Babe is available at Amazon.com, but I know know if it's anywhere else.

    THANKS, Florimel!

    I actually Googled "Babe" the TV movie before my last post, and it came back that it'd never been on DVD.

    Which, since 99% of whatever's ever been made IS on DVD, now, ANYWAY, I should've just ignored and gone straight to Amazon to check!

    THAT'LL LARN ME!!!!!!!!!
