    YEAH!

    That VOICE!!!

    She and Suzanne Pleshette had two of my most favorite female voices, ever! Rich, deep, smoky and sultry.

    Mr. Clapton once again mined the works of JJ for this one:

    And if this doesn't get the head to bobbin I'd suggest a doctor:

    Razorbacker, this man was an amazing musician.....great songwriter and guitar player. RIP J.J. Cale.

    So sad to hear about Eileen Brennan. Of course, 80 isn't bad.

    In addition to Private Benjamin, I always think about her as Mrs Peacock in Clue.

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    Michael Ansara died today at 91.
    The stories I read said he was best remembered as Klingon Commander Kang on 3 different Star Trek series.
    But I remember him on I Dream of Jeanie. I'm probably the only one who does. It's not even mentioned in the article. He played The Blue Djinn, who originally imprisoned Jeannie in her bottle before Major Nelson rescued her. He also played King Kamehameha in one Jeannie episode. I know that because I had I Dream of Jeanie on MeTV 2 nights ago & that's the episode I saw. I recognized him instantly. I remember him in both roles because he was an exceptionally good looking man with an exotic look, back in the day. Odd that he would die today, after just seeing that episode & remembering him.

    He was in loads of other TV shows & movies that I'm sure many of us remember. Way too many to mention here.

    RIP Michael. You are remembered by movie/TV fans like me.

    Michael Ansara was married to Barbara Eden for quite a few years. I always liked his work as an actor and was highly recognizable. They were married for quite a long time and had a son who died around 10 years ago.

    Before that he was married to Jean Byron (mom Natalie on The Patty Duke Show). I knew her slightly and liked her. They, too, were married for several years.

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    Oh, wow.

    MissScarlet, you're not the only one who remembers Michael Ansara as The Blue Djinn and Kamehameha on "Jeannie". I do, too! That was (and IS) one of my all-time favorite shows, and I watched it religiously, so yes, I recall him in those roles on "Jeannie".

    He also played Cochise in the "Broken Arrow" 50s TV series, and an Egyptian taskmaster in the '56 DeMille "Ten Commandments". He was VERY handsome, exotic-looking and highly recognizable (as you and Flo have noted), and like, say, Vincent Price or James Earl Jones, he had a VERY distinctive voice. So even if you didn't SEE him onscreen, if you HEARD him, you'd INSTANTLY know who was speaking, if you'd ever heard him speak before.

    91? What a long, long life!

    He was a wonderful actor, and he'll be missed.

    RIP, Michael.

    Not sure how many of you remember him from The Real World.

    Yes I recall him. I used to watch every season of The Real World. He was Pedro's husband.
