    I have to admit that I really enjoyed his work on 7th Heaven. He really was a talented actor. ;)

    Guess I'm going to have to hang around in the Gymnasium and then watch some movies about Gladiators.

    Sorry news indeed.

    Just a thought but as he did 'Fury', 'Mission Impossible' 'Whiplash' & 'Court Martial' ( the one everyone forgets) & his brother, James Arness did 20 years of 'Gunsmoke' 'McLains Law' & 'How the West Was Won' I would hazard a guess between them they have done more hours of episodic television than any other family.

    I remember Peter Graves for his outstanding role in "Stalag 17" (1953).

    Needless to say, his performance in M:I is timeless.

    I am always bummed when another actor that provided me with a lot of memories from my youth passes away. I definitely enjoyed his work. God Bless you my friend.
