Rest in Peace Dennis Weaver
They say it happens in 3's and I guess that is true as I just heard another of my favorite actors died. Dennis Weaver. Most will remember him for Gunsmoke, McCloud, Steve Speilberg's first made for TV movie Duel. The above photo is from the DVD of Duel. Most people will forget another TV show that kids loved. Gentle Ben. It starred him Clint Howard and a bear named Ben. The show was a hit in the 60's. Mr. Weaver is in an elite class of tv actors. He starred or co-starred in 3 hit shows. In the past year I even saw him in the show Wildfire. So since he was still active the news of his death came as a shock to me. Rest in Peace Dennis Weaver.
