    He was Nancy's dad in Nightmare On Elm Street 1, and 3, and himself in part 7.

    He was Bruce Lee's sidekick in "Enter The Dragon".

    And, he was in a million other things.
    But those were the biggies.

    Everyone else will remember other stuff, I'm sure.

    He was 83.

    I was just wondering what happened to him last night as I watched NoES 1 and 3. I was thinking he really sold the decline of her father well in 3. Not that he was a big part of 3.

    Oddly the other thing I thought of was what happened to the covington kid and he popped up in the news today too. I am afraid to think about betty white now.

    If she dies it is not my fault.

    I literally just watched an obscure movie from the 50s that he starred in. Had I known that he was so close, I would have tried to contact him to talk about it. Man, that pisses me the fuck off.

    There are apparently a shit ton of retired entertainers residing south of Nashville for some reason. It's why it took 840 so long to be completed. I had no idea he was living around there though.
