Some were only minor TV stars or character actors, some of you may not recognize them at all, but here are my additions to the list.
Dan O'Bannon
Probably best known for his screenplays for ALIEN, RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, and TOTAL RECALL. O'Bannon was only 63.
Paul Naschy
A legend in the world of of European horror films.
Gene Barry
He starred in the original WAR OF THE WORLDS as well as his own TV a couple of his own series which included "Bat Masterson".
Liam Clancy
Irish folk singer and member of the Clancy Brothers who often sang with the legendary pete Seeger.
Soupy Sales
The classic pie in the face comic.
See the full review, "The Pie Man".
Carl Ballantine
Best know for his TV work on McHale's Navy and the Partridge Family--and as a comedic magician.
Arnold Stang
The ultimate geek in films and on TV long before the word geek even existed. Take a look at his later work HERCULES IN NEW YORK if you doubt me.
Jennifer Jones
Academy Award winning actress.
Connie Hines
Co-star of TV's "Mr. Ed".
Dennis Cole
TV actor best know for "Medical Center", "Police Story", and numerous appearances on "Fantasy Island", and "The Love Boat".

I thought everyone could figure out for themselves who he was. What surprised me was O'Bannon. I hadn't heard about him.
