Manny P. here…
I’m sorry to hear about the passing of former 60 Minutes commentator, Andy Rooney. Recently, I wrote a blog about his contributions during World War II, at CBS, and at PBS (throughout his long career). He retired just last month from the weekly news program.
Andy Rooney was 92.
<——— Sid Melton also died on Friday. The longtime character actor appeared in motion pictures and television during the Golden Ages of each medium. Following in his father’s footsteps, who was a comedian in Yiddish theatre, Melton enjoyed a six-decade show business career.
His film credits include The Shadow of the Thin Man, On the Town, Knock on Any Door, The Geisha Boy, Lost Continent, Blondie Goes to College, and Lady Sings the Blues. On the small screen, Melton is best known for recurring roles on Make Room for Daddy, Captain Midnight, Green Acres, and The Golden Girls.
Sid Melton was 94.
Until next time. “never forget”
