lumberjack who became an actor by accident and went on to star as a stalwart
hero of Western movies and the TV series ``The Texan,'' died Wednesday. April
28,1999 He was 76. Calhoun died after being hospitalized 10 days with advanced
stages of emphysema and diabetes, said his longtime friend, Paul Dean. Calhoun
often told the story of how he was discovered in 1943 while he was horseriding
in the Hollywood Hills. Alan Ladd, then a top star, happened to be out riding,
too. ``I met this fellow up in the hills and stopped to talk,'' Calhoun
recalled. ``He asked me if I was an actor, and I said, " no!' We talked some
more and he asked, `How would you like to be in films?''' His handsome
face and sturdy physique won him lesser roles in `Something for the Boys,''
``Sunday Dinner for a Soldier,'' ``The Bullfighters'' and other wartime films.
His most important early role came as boxer James Corbett in ``The Great John
L.'' The actor, whose real name was Francis Timothy Durgin,
saw his career accelerate after a meeting with agent Henry Willson, who
discovered and invented names for Rock Hudson, Tab Hunter and Troy
Donahue. His rugged image made him ideal for such Westerns as ``Massacre
River,'' ``Rogue River,'' ``Yellow Tomahawk'' and ``Four Guns to the Border.''
In the late '40s and early '50s, he also appeared in ``The Red House,''
``Ticket to Tomahawk,'' ``How to Marry a Millionaire,'' ``Meet Me After
the Show'' and ``With a Song in My Heart.'' From 1958 to 1960, Calhoun
starred in a CBS television Western, ``The Texan.'' He played Big Bill Longley,
a fast gun who traveled from town to town helping those who were victimized by
bad men. In his later career, Calhoun appeared in lower budget films, many
of them made abroad. Among the titles: ``The Treasure of Pancho Villa,''
``Flight to Hong Kong,'' ``Marco Polo,'' ``The Colossus of Rhodes,'' ``Young
Fury,'' ``Black Spurs,'' ``The Adventures of Marco Polo.'' In 1982-87, he
appeared on the CBS soap opera ``Capitol,'' playing Judson Tyler, head of one of
the two feuding families in the show. He also was host of reruns of ``Death
Valley Days'' in the syndicated ``Western Star Theater.'' Calhoun was born in
Los Angeles and grew up in Santa Cruz, Calif. He hired out as a bronco buster
and mined silver near Reno before returning to Santa Cruz. In
1948, Calhoun married Latin entertainer Lita Baron, and they had two children.
They divorced in 1970. In 1971 Calhoun married former journalist Susan Langley.
They had a daughter before divorcing after five years.

SAN JUAN, Puerto
Rico (AP) - Puerto Rican authorities on Thursday January27,2000 freed an actress
convicted of murder more than a decade ago for hiring hit men to kill her
husband. The parole board decided to free Lydia Echevarria, upholding Gov.
Pedro Rossello's decision last month to grant her clemency for health
reasons. Echevarria was sentenced to 208 years in jail for the 1983 death
of her husband Luis Vigoreaux, a television producer and variety
show host. Suffering from diabetes, Echevarria left the prison in a wheelchair. ``Thanks to God,''
she said as she was taken to a van that whisked her past the gates of the
Women's Prison in Vega Alta, about 20 miles southwest of San Juan. Dozens
of reporters and onlookers were crowded outside the prison awaiting her release.
Echevarria, 68, was convicted of murder in 1986 for hiring killers who
beat him with a tire iron, stabbed him with an ice pick and then locked
him in the trunk of his car and set it ablaze, burning him alive.
Prosecutors said Echevarria was angry because she suspected Vigoreaux was
going to leave her for a younger woman. Echevarria was known for her roles
in local theater and television, and she appeared on Vigoreaux's show.
The five-member parole board had the final say over whether to allow her to go
free because Rossello stopped short of granting a full pardon. Echevarria's
release was fought by stepsons Roberto Vigoreaux, a local legislator, and
Luis Vigoreaux Jr., himself a variety show host. Daughters Glendaly and
Vanessa supported the clemency.
Actor Born:18 June
1927, London, England, UK Died: 4 November 1995, London, England. (skin cancer,
diabetes) Mr. Eddigton was a tall, debonair actor who achieved
international success in the 1970's with 'The Good Life' a popular
Actress-Singer-Cowgirl-Dedicated Christian. American leading lady of musical
Westerns of the 1940s. Born Lucille Wood Smith in Uvalde, Texas, her name was
changed at an early age to Frances Octavia Smith. She was raised in Texas and in
Arkansas. Married at 14 and a mother at 15, she was divorced at 17 (some sources
say widowed). Intent on a singing career, she moved to Memphis, Tennessee,
and worked in an insurance company while taking occasional radio singing
jobs. After another unhappy marriage, she went to Louisville, Kentucky and
became a popular singer on a local radio station. There she took the stage name
Dale Evans (from her third husband, Robert Dale Butts, and actress Madge
Evans). Divorced in 1936, she moved to Dallas, Texas and again found local
success as a radio
singer. She married Butts and they moved to Chicago, where she began to attract
increasing attention from both radio audiences and film industry
executives. She signed with Fox and made a few small film appearances, then was
cast as leading lady to rising cowboy star Roy Rogers. She and Rogers clicked
and she became his steady on-screen companion. In 1946, Rogers's wife died and
Evans marriage to Butts ended
about the same time.
Rogers and Evans had been close colleagues a string of successful Westerns, and
now became close off-screen as well. A year later, she married Rogers and the
two united to become icons of American pop culture. Their marriage was dogged by
tragedy, including the loss of three children before adulthood, but Evans was
able not only to find inspiration in the midst of tragedy but to provide
inspiration as well, authoring several books on her life and spiritual
growth through difficulty. She and Rogers starred during the 1950s on the
popular TV program bearing his name, and even after retirement continued to make
occasional appearances and to run their Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum in
Victorville, California. To read an in-depth

The Wiz, where she played the
Wicked Witch of the West (name of Evillene). But it is in the forever
world of TV reruns where King arguably leaves her biggest mark. In the 1976-79
ABC sitcom, she played the no-nonsense life advisor to a trio of teen boys, son
Raj (Ernest Thomas), and his friends Dwayne (Haywood Nelson) and Rerun (Fred
Berry). Poor health plagued King for years--she worked little following
the What's Happening!! run. More recent credits included a bit in the
Bill Murray comedy,
Scrooged. Diabetes cost King both her legs; a stroke damaged her
left hand; a fall from a wheelchair knocked out her upper teeth. She lived at Motion Picture & Television Hospital in
Woodland Hills for nine years, leaving the residence just this past August.
"Sure enough, I've been through a lot," King told the Los Angeles Times
in 1995, "but so what? I thank God for my life."

Birth name George
Campbell Scott Date of birth:18 October 1927, Wise, Virginia, USA
Date of death :22 September 1999 His death was reported Thursday, September
23,1999 was an accomplished actor and director, but despite his man appearances
on film, stage and television, he was best known for his portrayal of Gen.
George S. Patton. His role in the 1970 film about the heroics of the American
general during World War Two in ``Patton'' won him an Academy Award for Best
Actor in 1971, but he refused to accept it, calling the Oscar ceremony a
``meat parade'' and condemning the Oscars in general as ``offensive, barbarous
and innately corrupt.'' He also refused to attend or even watch the ceremony.
When he was announced the winner he was sitting at home on his New York farm
watching ice hockey on television. Scott also received Academy Award nominations
for Best Supporting Actor in 1962 for ``The Hustler'' and for Best Actor in
1972, the year after he had snubbed the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and
Sciences, for ``The Hospital.'' Born George Campbell Scott in Wise, Va., on Oct.
18, 1927, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps after graduating from high school
in 1945 for a four-year stint. In 1950 he briefly studied journalism at the
University of Missouri until, as he put it, he realized ``acting paid much
better.'' But his acting career started out slowly and stormy. For seven years
he toured with small theatrical companies and during this time he went through
two failed marriages, to Carolyn Hughes and Patricia Reed, more bar brawls than
he cared to remember and five broken noses. His 1957 Broadway debut in the title
role in Shakespeare's ''Richard III'' turned his life around, however. His
performance, described by one critic as ``stunningly venomous,'' led to a flurry
of offers from Hollywood and television. For the remainder of his career, Scott
continued to work successfully in all three mediums. He won television Emmy
awards for both acting and directing, plus numerous theatrical awards. He made
his film debut in 1959, starring in ``The Hanging Tree,'' and followed that up
with ``Anatomy of a Murder'' that same year. Among the most notable of his films
were ``The Hustler,'' in 1961, ``The List of Adrian Messenger,'' in 1963, and as
General ''Buck'' Turgidson, in the 1964 smash hit, ``Dr. Strangelove, or How I
Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb,'' in which he uttered the memorable
line, ``I don't say we wouldn't get our hair mussed, but I do say no more than
10 to 20 million killed, tops, that is, depending on the break.'' Other films
included ``The Yellow Rolls-Royce'' (1964), ''The Bible ... In the Beginning''
(1966), ``Not with My Life, You Don't, (1966), ``Petulia'' (1968), ``This Savage
Land'' (1969), ``Jane Eyre'' (1971), ``The New Centurions'' (1972), ''The Day of
the Dolphin (1973), ``The Hindenberg'' (1975), ''Movie, Movie'' (1978), ``The
Formula'' (1980), ``Taps'' (1981) and Firestarter'' (1984). Scott was married
five times, twice to the same wife, actress Colleen Dewhurst, with whom he had
two of his six children. The couple married in 1960 and divorced five years
later only to remarry in 1967. The second marriage ended in divorce five years
later. In 1972, Scott married another actress, Trish Van Devere. Both Dewhurst
and Van Devere acted opposite their husband on stage. Scott always maintained
that Broadway was where he wanted to be. ``I make movies for financial reasons
and this allows me the luxury of acting on Broadway, where I lose money,'' he
