I recently purchased the Seventh season of The Waltons (at W.M. for just $20!). I was watching the episode called the Torch the other night and to my amazement I saw a lady sitting in the background who is nearly the carbon copy of Michael Learned!!! I think it was at the part where John walks into the dew drop for the first time toward the beginning of the episode. Watch just as John walks in the door there is a blonde haired woman with her hair down drinking sitting at a table by the back wall. I watched this part three times and even pasued it and used the zoom on my DVD player. Is that her, or am I crazy? I would appreciate some feedback. Watch it and see what you think.
The only possible explaination I could think of for Ms. Learned playing the part of an extra (assuming that's her) is that maybe her contract said she had to appear in a certain number of episodes so they stuck her in like that. I don't know. It's just a guess. What do ya'll think?
