Suzanne Rogers is an absolute beauty still! What a career!! 513 episodes of Days! WOWOW!
I thought that episode was a good topic. Marriages did stay together more then, but that doesn't mean they didn't have issues. I am glad that Nells made the decison he did, but yes, Dave, its amazing he chose to go home. What a guy...that says alot.

Thanks Vanesa! Its not me,I just do a little research on the net and compile the info. I'm retired and its a hobby for me and lots of fun. Hollywood has always fascinated me. One interesting fact is that a lot of the kids that were on Little House are impossible to do reasearch on because they disappeared from the scene after doing LHOTP. Others went on to really be successful, and its very easy to research their careers.

My biggest frustration is Jonathon Gilbert and Matt Labyorteaux.
Jonathon simply dropped out of the scene. His sisters won't even mention him.
Why?

Matt Labyorteaux is another one. In my opinion, the best child actor ever to be on Little House. Thats only a personal opinion and I don't want start a big discussion about that.Mike Landon said it best: "Matt is something special".
To me its a sin that he didn't do more work in front of the camera. He is way too talented to be doing voice work.
Why?

Thanks for the kind words! I REALLY APPRECIATE IT!

KATY KURTZMAN WAS BORN IN SEPTEMBER OF 1965 IN WASHINGTON DC. SHE BEGAN HER CAREER AS A CHILD ACTRESS AND GOT HER FIRST BIG BREAK ON LIITLE HOUSE. SHE IS PROBABLY BEST REMEMBERED FOR HER ROLES AS HEIDI IN THE NEW ADVENTURES OF HEIDI AND LINDSAY BLAISDEL IN DYNASTY. HER MOST RECENT ACTING ROLE WAS IN 2004 WHEN SHE GUEST STARRED ON AN EPISODE OF STRONG MEDICINE, A TV SERIES. SHE HAS ACTED IN OVER 28 TITLES IN TELEVISION. HAWAII FIVE-0, FANTASY ISLAND, LOVE BOAT, TRAPPER JOHN MD, TO NAME A FEW. SHE WAS NOMINATED FOR THREE YOUNG ARTIST AWARDS IN 1982, 84 AND 86. SHE APPEARED WITH MELISSA SUE ANDERSON IN "VERY GOOD FRIENDS", AN ABC AFTERNOON SPECIAL IN 1977. SHE HAS ALSO PRODUCED, DIRECTED AND WRITTEN PROJECTS FOR TV.

SHE WAS IN TWO LITTLE HOUSE EPISODES...
I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER - YOUNG CAROLINE - 1978
THE MUSIC BOX - ANNA GILBERG - 1977



INTERVIEW WITH KATY KURTZMAN ON WORKING WITH MATTHEW LABYORTEAUX IN "I REMEMBER,I REMEMBER"

Mathew Labyorteaux was impressive as the young Charles and both of you had great chemistry. How was your working relationship with him? Do have any memories to share about this episode?

"We shot on location in Sonora, CA. It was cold, December. I had a mad, steaming, adolescent crush on Matt. I was wild about him. He for me, not so much. I tried my best to let him know how I felt, but I think I just freaked him out. He was unresponsive, too disinterested. He was a good friend though and Pat, Matt and I would hang out together for a while after the shoot. They lived only a few lights away from me. Pat was sweet and I think he liked me, but I was all for Matt and I could not figure out why he didn’t like me the same way I liked him.
In Sonora, Missy Gilbert came up right around Christmas time, after we had been shooting for a while. We were all staying in the same cheapish motel. There was a K-mart like place across the street and I went with Missy to buy a Christmas tree and decorations. She was so excited about that little tree that she couldn’t wait to get it back to her room before decorating it. We decorated that little tree right there in the parking lot and then walked it back to her room. She was always so fun, a really happy, energetic and optimistic young lady."

WITH MATT ON THE SET OF "I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER" -1978 -

PostSubject: Frederic Downs   Mon Apr 30, 2012 4:20 pm

Frederic Downs had a five-decade acting career that ranged from Broadway to films to both the infancy and maturity of television. He worked at nearly all the major film studios and on the top three commercial TV networks, as well as touring with Lotte Lenya in "Three Penny Opera." He also was in the original cast of "Fiorello" on Broadway in 1957. Additionally, Downs wrote drama, including a play about Abraham Lincoln he called "Lincoln's Scrapbook." His major movies included "The Cotton Club," "I, the Jury" and "Splendor in the Grass." In 1974 he received the Los Angeles Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in "Bus Stop."
He was born in May of 1916 in Corpus Christi, Texas. He had over 65 performances in Television and Film. He played Hank Wilson on Days of Our Lives in 1976. He also appeared on Greatest American Hero, CHiPs, The Waltons, Eight is Enough and Quincy ME, along with many more television shows. Frederic Downs passed away in April of 1998 at the age of 81.

He was in three Little House Episodes.
Love - 1982- Fred Downs
As Long As Were Together Part 1 - 1978 - Mr Thoms
The Wisdom of Solomon - 1977 - Kramer

Im sure you all remember him as the man that fired Mrs Schiller at the Dakota Hotel and hired Carolyn as the cook and Charles as the manager. In it, he spoke what I believe to be one of the funniest lines in Little House.

"You don't need a kitchen to cook biscuits like these, you need a blacksmith shop!"

I share your opinion about Matt. He was a terriffic actor and I cannot understand why he is not working any more... scratchead
