RIP, Peter.  Sad news.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

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.
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

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.
