…A moment I had been dreading for many years. I had just spoken about the end of the “Golden Girls” curse (“Golden Girls” celebrities have passed away one by one since 2008, and Betty White is certainly fixed to end the pattern in glorious fashion), and I have probably perpetuated the passing of the great Jack Klugman, who died today at age 90. He is obviously best known as Oscar Madison, Tony Randall’s foil on TV’s “The Odd Couple” from 1970-1975 and as crimefighting coroner Quincy, M.E. on the show of the same name from 1976-1983. He was also featured in 4 episodes of the original “Twilight Zone” — “A Game of Pool”, “A Passage for Trumpet”, “In Praise of Pip”, and “Death Ship” — TZ fan or not, I suggest you watch these episodes on Youtube, DVD, or on the Syfy channel. However, many may have overlooked his role as Juror #5 in the 1957 courtroom (well, really, deliberation room) drama “12 Angry Men”, alongside Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb, Ed Begley, E.G. Marshall, Martin Balsam, John Fiedler, Edward Binns, Jack Warden, Joseph Sweeney, George Voskovec, and Robert Webber. Mr. Klugman’s performance was quietly powerful and left a permanent impression on my existence. He was the Last Angry Man, as his co-stars have all left us. G’night, Juror #5…G’night, Oscar, and clean up that mess…G’night, Quincy, and thanks for cracking the case…G’night, Mr. Klugman. I know the video I am posting is dated, but it’s a fitting tribute, anyway. The Universe…wow…it clicks and whirrs beyond my measure, I declare. Thanks for reading, folks.
