‘Wild Wild West’ star Robert Conrad has died.
The 1960s and ’70s TV and film actor passed away Saturday due to heart failure at his home in Malibu, according to family spokesperson Jeff Ballard. Ballard, on behalf of the Conrads, tells TMZ … “He lived a wonderfully long life and while the family is saddened by his passing, he will live forever in their hearts.”
Mine too. I dearly loved WWW when I was a young ‘un, and I still watch reruns of Black Sheep Squadron now and then in my dotage. Fare thee well, Robert, and well done. May you rest easy.
Sad to hear this. I was at a model kit swap meet today (in Jacksonville, while unbeknownst to me some twit was clowning in his van) and saw a Revell “Baa Baa Black Sheep” Corsair kit in the original box. Haven’t watched that show in years but I remember every episode.
I built that model! I wonder if it’s still upstairs…
Clear skies and fair winds, Mr Conrad.
So he is number 3, along with Kirk Douglas, and Orson Bean. All lived long and fruitful lives, and are now at their prime in Heaven with their loved ones who have gone before.
We will miss them here. 🙁
Snort. One of those things is not like the other ones.
Kirk Douglas was a commie sympathizer and a life long gun-control advocate, Tina. I won’t say “good riddance to bad rubbish”, but I won’t mourn his passing, either.
Conrad and Bean are both to be mourned.
Aw, crumb. I didn’t know or had forgotten. We just watch The War Wagon every so often.
*shrug* So do I – for John Wayne. 🙂
And I still love the
“Mine hit the ground first.”
“Mine was taller.”
Douglas was a great actor. Not a human being for Americans to mourn, though.
Saw that. Conrad will be missed. Wild Wild West was an important part of my weekly entertainment when I was a kid. So was Baa Baa Black Sheep later.
