Unhappy Buddy Ebsen Has Passed

Sadly he has passed away at age 95. Just yesterday I heard that he was doing much better in a radio report. Buddy Epsen starred in both The Beverley Hillbillies and Barnaby Jones(A favorite of mine). He was also in many films including a great WWII movie titled Between Heaven and Hell with Robert Wagner.

I, too, am saddened to hear of Buddy Ebsen's passing. You know, when you consider the age of some of the actors and actresses that have recently passed, it's not totally unexpected to hear of their death. It still hurts, though.

Farewell, Mr. Ebsen. You will be missed.

Yes, most sad. He would have been good on the Council of twelve.

I'm glad to learn that there are other fans of Barnaby Jones here. I have fond memories of that series. I was deeply saddened by the news of Mr. Ebsen's passing. He will be missed.

The world shall be a poorer place with the loss of Buddy Ebsen. I liked Barnaby Jones. There were lots of cop/detective shows on right then. But somehow his just worked. He had a way of making the character fit his personality.

But for a quirk, he might have been in EIT. Ah, the vageries of Fate.

And he was the original tin man in the Wizard of Oz; a part he lost to Jack Haley as Ebsen was allergic to the makeup application process (a fact that was found out after application...sent him to the hospital). They changed the makeup from a metallic powder application after Ebsen became ill and could not continue the part to a metallic cream application for Haley.... Picture coming....
