Rest in Peace Jack. Gonna miss you.
Made “Sam, run a tox screen” as famous as McGarrett’s “Book ‘em, Dano!”
Great actor. I just saw him in an early episode of the Twilight Zone.
Twelve Angry Men.
The Original CSI!
There goes another piece of my TV watching habit when I was youth.
Felix....I'd probably choke him after a week.
Quincy was one of my favorite TV shows as a kid. I have some of the DVDs.
He was really good in “One Of My Wives Is Missing” or maybe called “Masqureade”.
I was just watching him last night on Quincy... via Netflix. RIP
I remember when Dr Quincy was looking for handgun that got loose and was killing people.
“WE’VE GOT TO FIND IT BEFORE IT KILLS AGAIN!”
Never watched him after that.
Hagman, now Klugman...
How bout a couple of great Oscar Madison quotes?
WANDER: He’s like my third husband, he should rest in peace.
OSCAR MADISON: How do you know he’s dead? Maybe he’s just bluffing.
OSCAR MADISON: I know him. He’s too nervous to kill himself. Wears his seat belt in a drive-in movie.
The pool shark episode. One of my favorites.
I think he was also in an episode about a down-and-out jazz trumpeter.
He was in “Goodbye, Columbus” also, wasn’t he?
Don’t know how I doubled ,,, great minds and all that ... I thought that Twilight Zone episode was one of the best.
Oh yeah, now that you mention it. Really good too. That’s the great part about the Twilight Zone, as soon as somebody mentions an episode you remember it, and you loved it.
Trivia: Jack Klugman’s son Adam is a massive left wing activist.
Yes, he was the father.
Brett Somers shares the blame for that imbecile.
RIP, Mr. Klugman. I loved him on the TZ, especially the episode where he challenges Jonathan Winters to a game of pool (with very high stakes). I also really liked him on The Odd Couple and in 12 Angry Men. Quincy was okay. I enjoyed the science behind it, but I didn’t like it being the part of what I called “The Lou Grant Effect”. That is, many episodes were simply set pieces for the trendy cause d’jour. Still, even when the show was it its preachiest, Klugman was a fine actor and a class act.
All 12 angry men are now gone.
I’ll always fondly remember him for that film and his wonderful performance in “The Odd Couple.”
A great man who left behind a great body of work. Rest in Peace. You can go to that great theater in the sky.
I agree with you. The Quincy show was left wing...
Typical liberal drivel.
Just watched that episode on Netflix last night. Great performance by Klugman.
Jack Klugman was a great actor, one of that handful of actors who made anything they were in better just because they were in it.
LOL! I doubt he wrote that episode.
Maybe he was a liberal, maybe not. If he was, at least he wasn’t a bigmouth “activist” about it.
One memorable Quincy (that is widely mocked today) alerted us to the dangers of punk rock.
Who among us didn’t think he was dead?
“I like ketchup. It’s like tomato wine”
That is exactly what I was thinking.
I believe Courtney Vance, Dorian Harewood and James Gandolfini are still alive
“Who among us didn’t think he was dead?”
I’ll admit to it, RC. When I read the headline, I thought that he had passed years ago from cancer. RIP, Jack.
They were in an argument and it comes out the "Felix Unger" was "FU".
All that time, Oscar thought Felix meant "**** you" !
WWII Vet, too. RIP, and thanks for your service.
As a kid I remember watching the Odd Couple and always liked that show.
He could play comic and tragic roles; excellent at both.
And he was in an hour-long space exploration episode.
I never saw the space exploration but I vaguely remember the Vietnam episode. BTW, SyFy usually runs a marathon of Twilght Zone episodes, beginning New Year’s Eve. I’m looking forward to that!
Always enjoyed his work. RIP.
Won’t anybody else here admit that they thought he had already died at least 10 years ago?
