PostSubject: CORDY CLARK   Sun Oct 26, 2014 10:16 am

Cordy Clark was born on April 26, 1929 in Colorado, USA as Cornelia Clark. She was an actress, known for The Hills Have Eyes (1977), For Love of Ivy (1968) and Who's Minding the Mint? (1967).

She began her acting career in 1961 on “Make Room For Daddy” with Danny Thomas. She appeared on such classics as Mister Ed, The Lucy Show, Wagon Train and Divorce American Style. In 1977 she appeared on Little House and was in the horror movie The Hills Have Eyes in the same year.

Her last appearance was on Fantasy Island in 1978. She died in April of 1982 two weeks before her 53rd birthday in Los Angeles, California.

It should be noted that her character on Little House appears in a deleted scene that has been recently restored on the new DVD's.  When Caroline gets a job in the laundry at the hospital, she works for the character played by Cordy. Many thanks to Marilyn for catching this one........[

PostSubject: Steve Shaw Remembered   Tue Nov 25, 2014 9:51 am

Recently, there was a Knots Landing reunion. No mention of Steve Shaw........

Steve gave two memorable performances on Little House on the Prairie. In 1977 he played Sam Delano in "Gold Country" and followed that with a touching performance in "The Odyssey" in 1979 as Dylan Whittaker. In that same year, he went on to do 81 episodes of Knots Landing as Eric Fairgate

December 5th of this year (2014) will mark the 24th anniversary of his death in a traffic accident in Los Angeles, California. He was 25 years old.

Little House fans will always remember Steve. Rest in peace............

PostSubject: WENDY WELLS   Thu Jan 15, 2015 4:35 pm

Wendy Kay Wells, born in April 0f 1962, is both a Texas and Arizona native. It was her senior year of high school in 1979 when she had her first real acting opportunity, to work on the TV series Little House on the Prairie. She recalls, "Michael Landon was one of the coolest actors I have had the pleasure to work with!"

In 1981 she left her home town and enlisted for a hitch in US Navy. When her six-year enlistment was up, she moved to Hollywood to work in TV and film. After appearing on several sitcoms in 1987/1988 Wendy left Hollywood to serve another six years with the Navy, while serving in Japan, she was told by both locals and Navy personnel alike that she had a strong resemblance to Academy Award winning actress Sandra Bullock. As of 2011 Wendy became a Professional Sandra Bullock "Celebrity lookalike". She has since put her acting in film and TV on hold to focus on screenwriting.

From 1979 through 2011, Wendy has had 23 credits as an actress. They include Stir Crazy, Top Gun, Family Ties, Cheers, 21 Jump Street, The Facts of Life, Charles In Charge, Miami Vice and The Good Guys to name a few. She currently works under her married name of Wendy Wells – Gunkel.

She was in four back to back episodes of Little House in 1979 (Season Six).  The Preacher Takes a Wife, Annabelle, The Third Miracle and Family Tree, all as a classroom student.

PostSubject: Gregory Walcott   Mon Mar 23, 2015 4:22 pm

He had scores of credits during his long career, also appearing in 'Mister Roberts,' 'Prime Cut,' 'Norma Rae' and in four Clint Eastwood films.
Gregory Walcott, an admired actor who appeared in such memorable films as Mister Roberts, The Eiger Sanction, Norma Rae and Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space, has died. He was 87.




Walcott, who starred as pilot Jeff Trent in Plan 9, considered one of the worst films ever made, died Friday of natural causes at his longtime Canoga Park home in Los Angeles, his son, Men in Black puppeteer Todd Mattox, confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

In a 1998 interview with Filmax magazine’s Dwayne Epstein, Walcott recalled being asked by a friend, fledgling producer J. Edwards Reynolds, about starring in a sci-fi film opposite Bela Lugosi. “But Ed, Bela Lugosi is dead,” he noted.

Indeed, the horror legend had died in 1956, but footage of him shot by writer-director Wood would be used in the 1959 ultra-low-budget movie.
“I refused at first,” Walcott said in the interview. “I read the script, and it was gibberish. It made no sense, but I saw Ed Reynolds as a naive, sweet man. I had done some pretty good things prior to that, so I thought I had a little credibility in Hollywood. I thought maybe my name would give the show some credibility. … The film was made surreptitiously. My agent didn’t even know I did it.”

Plan 9 has become a cult classic, but Walcott for years wanted nothing to do with it. “I had done so many great films and worked with so many great directors that I didn’t want to be identified with such a piece of trash,” he said.

In his final onscreen role, however, Walcott appeared in a cameo as a potential film backer (much like Reynolds) in Tim Burton’s 1994 biopic Ed Wood.

The burly 6-foot-4 Walcott also played a shore patrolman in Mister Roberts (1955), romanced Claudette Colbert in Texas Lady (1955), portrayed merciless drill instructors in Battle Cry (1955) and Delbert Mann’s The Outsider (1960) and was Gene Hackman’s psychopathic brother in Prime Cut (1972).

In Martin Ritt’s Norma Rae (1978), he played the police chief who hauls away Sally Field’s character during the film’s famous protest scene.

Walcott also was a favorite of Clint Eastwood who worked with the actor-director on CBS’ Rawhide and in the features Joe Kidd (1971), Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1973), The Eiger Sanction (1975) and Every Which Way But Loose (1978).

He also starred as Det. Roger Havilland on the 1961-62 NBC series 87th Precinct, based on the books by Ed McBain, and stood out as seven different characters on seven episodes of Bonanza — just one of the dozens of TV Westerns in which he appeared (Bat Masterson, Maverick, Laramie, Cheyenne, etc.).

Born Bernard Mattox, Walcott was raised in Wilson, N.C., where his father sold furniture. He served in the U.S. Army, attended Furman University on a football scholarship and in 1949 hitchhiked with just $100 in his pocket all the way to Los Angeles, where he studied acting with Ben Bard.

Legendary Western star Dale Evans introduced him to his future wife, Barbara, at a party.

Walcott landed a bit part in Red Skies of Montana (1951), starring Richard Widmark, and then appeared in Raoul Walsh’s Battle Cry (1954), which got him a contract at Warner Bros.

Walcott produced and starred as a medical missionary in the 1967 film Bill Wallace in China (1966) and had roles in such other films as Badman’s Country (1958), On the Double (1961), Captain Newman, M.D. (1963), Steven Spielberg’s The Sugarland Express (1974) and Midway (1976).

In 2003, he published a memoir, Hollywood Adventures: The Gregory Walcott Story.

He played the Bartender in “Chicago”……………

Will MacMillan, who played the heroic leader of the band of holdouts fighting the military in George A. Romero’s 1973 epidemic thriller The Crazies, died Dec. 2 in Burbank, his family announced. He was 71.
MacMillan, who specialized in playing authority figures, also appeared in such films as The Enforcer (1976) opposite Clint Eastwood, Robert Zemeckis’ Used Cars (1980), Oliver Stone’s Salvador (1986) and Jonathan Kaplan’s Bad Girls (1994).

In Romero’s low-budget cult classic The Crazies, a military plane crashes in a small town in western Pennsylvania, releasing a biological weapon into the water supply. The virus, code-named “Trixie,” infects many of the local folks and turns them homicidal.

“It’s madness unleashed by human error!" the voice on the trailer exclaims.
MacMillan, credited as W.G. McMillan in the movie, played the firefighter David, a former Green Beret, who, with his pregnant girlfriend (Lane Carroll), battle to stay alive. The film was remade by director Breck Eisner in 2010, with Timothy Olyphant starring as David.

The veteran actor also had guest-starring stints on such TV shows as The West Wing, Matlock, Hunter, NYPD Blue, The Greatest American Hero, Little House on the Prairie and Three’s Company.

On the local stage, MacMillan co-starred in Brigadoon with Charles Durning in Pittsburgh, in 1776 with Gary Beach in Sacramento, Calif., and in The Unsinkable Molly Brown with Cathy Rigby in La Mirada, Calif.

A native of Steubenville, Ohio, MacMillan played offense and defense on the Weir High football team that won the 1960 state championship. He earned a BA from Washington & Jefferson College and a masters from Boston University.

MacMillan served as artistic director of the Psychic Repertory Theatre, which toured the country for children with special needs, from 1976-90, his family noted.

He directed and executive produced the independent film Destiny Trail (2015), which was written and produced by his daughter, Natalie, who also co-stars. His wife of 34 years, Laura, and their son, Jonathan, served as producers as well.
