Howdy Manco!!

Jack Klugman has been around since the 1950's. He has appeared in a couple of classic films like the original 12 Angry Men and Days Of Wine And Roses with Jack Lemon and Lee Remick. He has starred and co-starred in 2 great t.v. series, The Odd Couple with his good friend Tony Randall and Quincy .M.E. I'm sure most will remember him best for his role of the medical examiner in Quincy, but I will always remember him as Oscar Madison, the sports writing slob and roommate of Felix Unger.

I always get Robert Donner and Matt Clark confused for some reason. I suppose it's because they both showed up in supporting character roles in so many westerns. Robert Donner appeared in Rio Bravo as the guy who wanted to kill James Caan for knifing his friend. He also appeared in Rio Lobo, Vanishing Point, The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing and many others, but in the back of my mind, I keep seeing him as Exidor, the crazed monk who got more laughs than Robin Williams on Mork And Mindy.

I first saw Ann Margaret in Bye Bye Birdie around 1960,( I think). It was a spoof of Elvis Presley. Little did she know at the time, that she would go on to make Viva Las Vegas with the real Elvis and would become lifelong friends with the King. She has appeared in The Train Robbers with the Duke and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress in Tommy. At the age of 52 years old, she appeared in Grumpy Old Men with Jack Lemon and Walter Matthau and was STILL one of the sexiest women I've ever seen. She also appeared in the sequel, Grumpier Old Men and I still don't know who was the prettiest, Ann Margaret or Sophia Loren.

Robert Donner used to appear every so often on Match Game, and he would come up with kooky answers! This was when he was guest starring on Mork and Mindy, so I thought he just stayed in character! He also played the preacher in High Plains Drifter.

And Ann-Margret....who knew you could be nominated for an Oscar for rolling in baked beans!

I liked Jack Klugman in Quincy .M.E. . It was a good show. I don't remember him in movies. From what the movie data base shows, he was mostly in TV series. That must be where I saw him in other shows.

Ann-Margret, I liked her in
The Train Robbers
with John Wayne. That's a good one.

I also liked her in Stagecoach (1966)

Non western, I like her in Grumpier Old Men.

And then I can't forget her in Viva Las Vegas (1964) with Elvis. It's been a long time since I last saw this movie.

Westergal, Sandy

Robert Donner told us that it was Clint Eastwood (who renteed in the same apartment building at the time) who suggested to him that he try acting as a career. He told him to go to his old drama coach and take lessons and when he was ready he would help him get into the business. Clint kept true to his word and when he was ready for it he got him a part on a Rawhide episode. From there he just kept working. He really did enjoy Mork and Mindy and had a bunch of fun working with Robin Williams. Donner was one of those good guys who could play some rascally scoundrels and then was happy to move over to comedy.

Howdy Tom!!

It must have been a treat to talk to Donner, one on one!! I would have loved to have met him. He sure had a wacky sense of humor. I can still recall that crazed look he would get in his eyes on the Mork And Mindy show, when he put forth one of his looney ideas. If you'll recall the character he played in Rio Bravo, with the Duke, James Caan and Christopher George, the part of Exidor was totally out of character for someone so capable of such dramatic parts. He was certainly a multi faceted personality.
