Harry Morgan, so brilliant as Colonel Potter on MASH for 8 seasons, died today at the age of 96. Though my knowledge of his acting career does not go beyond MASH and Dragnet, the two roles for which he is best known, I know from reading what others have written about him that he was the real deal.
Check out these tributes:
- From Ken Levine, head writer on MASH for several of Morgan's seasons.
- From Alan Sepinwall, TV critic extraordinaire.
