73. I remember Harry Morgan from Dragnet; RIP Harry
Actually I find it hard to believe that Harry Morgan had still been alive up until just now.

I remember him playing Officer Bill Gannon in Dragnet. I liked him in that role, though he did seem to be a yes-man to Sergeant Joe Friday (as played by Jack Webb who died in 1982).

I remember one episode in which Bill Gannon was adding a lot of sugar to his coffee, and he made the comment that sugar was the salt of the earth.
