Thanks Brenda Realised (remembered) who Sian portrayed not long after I sent the post but I was off to bed. Couldn't remember Kip part though so thanks. Getting a bit rusty again. We in the UK have had no WALTONS on TV for quite some time
Ellen Corby had a small part in The Ghost And Mr. Chicken which I watched today. She played Miss Neva Tremaine Luther's ( Don Knotts) old teacher who testified in She also appeared with Don Knotts in an episode of The Andy Griffith Show.
I recently watched a Columbo episode on COZI tv and Sian Barbara Allan (Jenny on the "Love Story") played a leading part which couldn't have been any different from her rather uplifting character in the Waltons. She eventually gets murdered for blackmailing, Although both of her parts in Columbo and the Waltons were in 1973 she seemed much older (probably close to her real age) in Columbo.
On a previous post (Patsy Bremmer forum), I mentioned that the first Patsy Bremmer (Debbie Gunn) was my kids' babysitter. She lived only 3 blocks away. Coincidentally, I saw Ike Godsey at the local church on more than one occaision. It makes me wonder if Ike and Patsy knew they were neighbors in real life.
In 1975, when I lived in Virginia where I watched the Waltons in real time, my Mother and son and I took a trip to Schuyler, located a couple hours away, to observe what the Hamner home town looked like. It was located well off the beaten path and the road through it seemed to have been built just because of the town's existence. A nice woman at the local Post Office gave me directions to the Hamner house where, she said, the mother and youngest son still lived. I drove by and debated whether to knock on the door but chickened out and drove away.
Just earlier tonight, Mary Jackson was in a ME-TV rerun of Columbo, "Try and Catch Me" from 1977. She played a maid in the employ of Ruth Gordon, who was cast as a mystery novelist who committed a murder herself. Watch for that one!
I am new to the forum since June 21 2020(See my comments Season 5 The Wedding). I stated that the Curt and Mary Ellen are favorite characters. I do like the others I googled Tom Bower and Michael Learned They are in their 80s. Does anyone on this forum have contact with them. I hope they are still in good health. Thank you.
