Hagman, who died last week aged 81, reportedly visited Bucharest ....
Why did you post this in News and not Chat? Why did you even post this at all? And - more importantly - why am I even responding to such a load of crap story like this?
I guess I’m a sucker for the freak show stories like this.

The story is, that Ceausescu thought that Dallas would show Romanians how evil Capitalism was, as compared with Socialism.
However, it backfired on him, as Romanians saw the goods the more ordinary people on the show had, as compared to them.

So Hagman, much like his character JR, knew a good business opportunity when he saw it. No problem, there.

(Political campaigns should follow Johnny Mercer's advice--Accentuate the positive.)
A Dictator having to pay an actor to erect a portrait of said actor in the country where he is the Dictator? He must not have got his copy of “Dictatorship for Dummies.”
The Dallas star is understood to have agreed to the request, on the condition that a bag of hard currency was delivered to the ladies' loo of a government office. It was agreed his wife would pick up the bag the next day.
A brown paper bag filled with dollars was then left in the designated place, Hagman recently told the Sunday Times.
What Would JR Do?

I don’t know about this story, but in the 80s Hagman was constantly bashing Ronald Reagan. He was and probably remained very liberal. I loved the character he created and hope that he rests in peace, but he was the 80s version of Sean Penn.

Many people have posed for money. Some for art, some for more prurient reasons.
Nothing to see here, move along.

Sounds like a smart deal for JR.
His death is horrible news for the Dallas remake, he and Bobby and Cliff Barnes are more interesting than their children. He managed to film 6 episodes for the new season.
Very ironic, the character of JR’s father Jock had to be written out when the actor died.
