One more card for Cindy Morgan. It was funny in that "Caddyshack" scene when all the punks suddenly showed some decorum standing at attention while Lacie Underall approached the high dive.

Actor Don Murray has died at 94.


Oscar nominated for "Bus Stop" opposite Marilyn Monroe. I loved seeing him in the "Twin Peaks" reboot of 6 years ago. He still cut a dashing figure, even well into his 80s.

He appears on some vintage issues in his younger days from the likes of Dutch Gum and Nu-Cards, but the Hollywood Walk of Fame ones are nice because they show some credits and usually a more recent picture. But with that set being 33 years old now, many of the people who were 50+ when it was issued, have passed on by now.

Rest in peace, Don Murray.

One more for Carl Weathers, showing him as Greef Karga from "The Mandalorian", a character he likely would've played again in the upcoming Mando/Grogu theatrical film.

It was announced earlier today that Ian Lavender aged 77 has died, he was well known here in the UK for playing Private Pike in the sitcom Dad's Army. Cards were produced for Dad's Army by Primrose in 1973 and by Sporting Profiles in 2006, alas I don't have images from those two sets to hand I have found an image from the Butterworth & Son issue of a 2018 anniversary set of Playing cards with art/design by Nick Oldham.

He had a great role as a Vulcan ambassador on "Star Trek: Enterprise" too, appearing across the show's run. I see there is an interview with him in which he talks about that character.

I don't know why Michael Jayston didn't become one of those international British stars like Michael Caine or Alec Guinness. I picked up one of his Doctor Who cards in the Signature Series because I remembered seeing him as the Tsar in "Nicholas and Alexandria" and I wanted his autograph. Even though that was a big picture in 1971, I can't recall seeing him in anything much afterwards.

I guess he kept his career going on stage and in British TV, but I wonder why he didn't make the transition to leading man? He was a good actor.

RIP Mojo Nixon, age 66, who has passed away while participating on an Outlaw Country ocean cruise. He did a show, closed the bar with other passengers, and died. Never a huge star, but a huge personality.

I was curious as to which set the card was issued in and fortunately today I received in the post a dealer's magazine that featured exactly the same image along with details of the issuer. The card was issued in C & T Bridgewater Ltd seventh series of 48 Film Stars issued in 1939. They issued at least 8 different series of Film Stars between 1932-39 with their biscuit products, the cards themselves are quite small from what I can make out and are plain backed with know indication of the issuer.

thank you Bill

regards

John

Actor Charles Dierkop died on Sunday, age 87. He was in a favorite movie, "The Sting", but I knew him best from "Police Woman". In the first episode, a back-door pilot run as an episode of "Police Story" (in which 42 year old Angie Dickenson plays a rookie cop), Dierkop is trying to decided if Dickenson has what it takes to go undercover as a prostitute. He asks her if she knows what a "string of pearls" is. How in the world did that get by the censors?

A much bigger question is how did the public ever allow the censors to exist.

Please, we have so much censorship on the various media platforms now, no one can even be sure what percentage of the truth they are getting, if any.

It was a lot better when all they wanted to cut out was nudity and bad language. Today's censors frame the story, dismiss what they don't like, enhance what they do like, and if all else fails, they just make it up. But it's all for your own good, don't you know? Big Grin

To keep people from talking about a "string of pearls" on TV. Obviously.
