Larry Hagman has passed away from Cancer. Best known for his roll on the night time soap Dallas. An entire summer advertising was built on the cliffhanger “Who Shot JR?”. It was a huge promotion with shirts and cups and all kinds of gizmos.
Another generation probably remembers him most fondly from “I Dream Of Jeanie”. It was a silly feel good comedy but A lot of young guys dreamed of trading places and having that Jeanie for their own.
Hagman was the son of Actress Mary Martin who was a huge broadway star and remembered most for her role as Peter Pan.
The comeback of the show Dallas will certainly miss Larry Hagman but he did film some episodes that will air in the second season.
