television actors

In Memoriam

Back in the 50s, there was a television series titled December Bride.  It starred Spring Byington as a widow who longed to find a suitable man and remarry.  A character actor played the next-door neighbor named Pete.  The actor was Harry Morgan.  He went on to star in a spinoff series titled Pete and Gladys, a show that I remember.  My grandmother was a great fan of both shows; and no matter what other series Morgan was in, she always called him “Ol’ Pete.”  So when Harry Morgan passed away this past December, I guess it was natural for me to think, “Ol’ Pete is gone.”<
