It's funny watching some older shows and then going onto www.imdb.com and looking up their names to see what they look like today. Some people have really not aged well, others have. Guess it depends on how much they stayed in popularity....

An actress who has long been a favorite of mine, although her main fame came in movies in the 1940's, was Veronica Lake, whose best films were often with Alan Ladd. I have found it sad that the Hollywood "factory" system misused her great talents. She died an alcoholic and in obscurity at age 50.
My favorite films of hers: "The Blue Dahlia," "This Gun for Hire, " "I Married a Witch," and "Sullivan's Travels." ========= Favorite TV shows: From the past: .....Green Acres .....The Twilight Zone .....Wild, Wild West .....Have Gun, Will Travel .....The Many Lives of Dobie Gillis More Recent: .....The Wire .....Seinfeld .....Animal, Food, Travel, Science, Nature documentaries
When I saw Bill Bixby's name I remembered as a kid I used to really like the music to "The Courtship of Eddie's Father". My Grandson makes me feel like he thinks of me that way. My own kids (all grown up now), who knows? Benny

Thursday night on NBC falls in this area for several years...HIll Street Blues, LA Law, ER and all the sitcoms leading to that hour... 10. Firefly --Today-- Doctor Who Person of Interest Castle Bones Warehouse 13
Actress is also very tough...I really don't have a favorite. I end up liking someone in a role then I see them on a talk show and lose all respect for them.
