Q. Can you tell me the name of the song and
the artist played at the end of the November 29
episode of “Person of Interest”?
A. The song is “One of These Mornings,” sung
by Moby, featuring Patti LaBelle.
Q. In the early 1970s, our middle school
English teacher made us watch a TV movie for
homework. It starred Robby Benson and it was
about a young man dying. I can’t remember the
title of the movie. Do you remember the title?
What happened to Robby Benson?
A. Well, first off, what you saw was the 1975
movie “Death Be Not Proud,” based on the true
story of Johnny Gunther, son of journalist John
Gunther, who died of a brain tumor. This was
during Benson’s phase of playing characters
who died – 1976’s “The Last of Mrs. Lincoln”
and “Ode to Billy Joe,” 1977’s “The Death of
As for Benson, he keeps busy providing cartoon
voices, most notably that of the Beast, as
in “Beauty and the.” He was the Beast in the
original 1993 film and still provides the voice
on cartoon shows and for video games.
Q. Was Delta Burke ever one of “Barker’s
Beauties” on “The Price Is Right”?
A. I sense a lack of enthusiasm for snark on
your part. Burke was never a Barker’s Beauty.
“No,” in other words.
Q. Sometime in the late 1960s Glenn Ford
was in a TV series as a lawman out west. Can
you tell me the title and if it’s on video?
A. “Cade’s County” is the series, and it ran on CBS from 1971 to 1972. Ford played county
sheriff Sam Cade, who kept law and order in
sprawling Madrid County somewhere in the
American Southwest. Edgar Buchanan (Uncle
Joe on “Petticoat Junction”) was his sidekick .
Ford was one of several movie stars who came
to TV in the early 1970s as the star of a series.
Others included Shirley MacLaine, Jimmy
Stewart, Anthony Quinn and Henry Fonda.
Some “Cade’s County” episodes were on
video, but now are out of print.
