"I had the honor of getting to know him not only as a great football player but an outstanding human being.

Dusay was a regular on the daytime dramas Capitol, Santa Barbara, Guiding Light and All My Children. (In the 1930s and '40s, many daytime radio serials were sponsored by Procter & Gamble, maker of Duz, Dreft, Camay, Ivory, Oxydol and other soaps and detergents. The programs became known as "soap operas" – and the name stuck.) Dusay also played a waitress in the 1967 Elvis Presley film Clambake and played Blair's mother on The Facts Of Life.

Professionally, Mary Theresa Eleanor Higgins Clark Conheeney used only three of her six names. Many of her 80 novels and short stories shared titles with popular songs. Among them: Silent Night, Deck The Halls, As Time Goes By, You Belong To Me, I'll Be Seeing You, I'll Walk Alone, Every Breath You Take, On The Street Where You Live, Moonlight Becomes You, The Second Time Around and The Shadow Of Your Smile. She was an excellent writer of mysteries but she wasn't very good at coming up with original titles.

I'll second it. Even though I didn't particularly like her stuff, she wrote stuff that you would see on Lifetime Movie Network or something. Still know her.

Okay, ladies and gentlemen, here we go. Reynolds was 10 when he appeared in the Our Gang short Washee Ironee. His first movie appearance (uncredited) was in the 1934 Laurel & Hardy adaptation of Babes In Toyland. Reynolds had roles in dozens of movies and tv shows including Boys Town, Santa Fe Trail, Love Finds Andy Hardy and I Love Lucy. He produced and directed hundreds of episodes of M*A*S*H, Lou Grant, F Troop, My Three Sons, The Andy Griffith Show and other series. Whew! He won six Emmy awards.
