A SAD WEEKEND FOR OLD-SCHOOL HOLLYWOOD...AND IT'S FANS
First, we learn that one of America's greatest comedic actors, Don Knotts, fell to lung cancer Friday night in Los Angeles. Then, less than 24 hours later, Darren McGavin passes away at the age of 83 of natrual causes.
One interesting coincidence: both men were featured in the 1976 family comedy "No Deposit, No Return".
UPDATE: We learned this afternoon that Dennis Weaver, best known for his roles on Gunsmoke and McCloud, died at his Colorado home of complications from cancer. He was 81.
