Darren McGavin has died


Another one bites the dust.
Darren McGavin has also died.

Of course we all know him as the father in "A Christmas Story".

Knotts and McGavin were both in "Hot Lead, Cold Feet" and "No Deposit, No Return".

Another great actor. I particularly liked him as Carl Kolchak in the Night Stalker movies and TV Series back in the 70's.
