That's too bad. I am sure I'm not the only one to think "wow, he was still alive?" That show was a looooong time ago. Consider this: If Todd Bridges hadn't turned his life around, Bain probably would've outlived all of his TV children.

This is really a downer. He's been present in a good percentage of my memories of watching TV.

Sadly, I couldn't help but think that. But living to be nearly 90 and being in American households for 14 years on 2 hit TV series (he was also Arthur Harmon on Maude) is a life well-lived, I'd say.


Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

Ditto. The same when I heard Jack Klugman died. I guess I'm getting so old I assume these people who were old when I was a child are already deceased.

When I think of Conrad Bain, the first show that comes to mind for me is Dark Shadows. Although he was only in a handful of episodes, he was actually a lot of fun to watch in it. At times he was also quite humorous, especially when he had dialogue with Sam Evans (both Sam 1 and Sam 2). http://darkshadows.w...iki/Conrad_Bain
