I was sad (and surprised) to hear that she divorced him 3 years ago, after 39 years of marriage, and he said that he did not know why. She later said on a talk show that he was not "intimate" with her. Very sad.
Originally posted by catskilleagle: The Captain and Tennille were a big deal in the 70's with a few hits and their own TV show. She's the talented and leggy singer and he's the keyboard player with a captain's hat who never spoke on stage. It was an almost-vaudeville gimmick that worked for them. I remember when some people objected to their song, "Muskrat Love," saying the lyrics were too explicit - quite mild to most back then and hardly noticeable today.
I was sorry to read of another 70's performer's passing.

One more for the great Finney, seen here packing some literal heat on this relic card from "Skyfall",which turned out to be his last movie. I sure wish he'd signed autographs for that set. I've have acquired one immediately.
If there's a better movie than 1990's "Miller's Crossing" in which Finney co-starred, I'd sure like to know what it is. He even made "Annie" watchable.
Rest in peace, great man.

Character actor Morgan Woodward, who played the guard with mirrored sunglasses in Cool Hand Luke, died Feb 23 at the age of 93. He was the first person to have been mind-melded on the original Star Trek, and played two separate roles in two different episodes of that show.
