5. Nooo!
That makes me very sad. I really liked him. He'll be best remembered for Laugh-In but he was quite amazing in Nashville.

6. Gee Whiz... Seems People Are Dropping Like Flies Lately! Actually I think
the flies are winning!! Everyday, it seems another person of "my era" or before is crossing over!

So sorry to hear, but there are times I think they may be lucky in a certain sense. I don't mean that to sound crass, it's just that things here on "planet earth" seems to want to rotate the wrong way at this point in time!!

11. His single, career-best line is STILL from the movie "Nashville."
"...Welcome to my beautiful home."



I grew up in a home that played all of the Grand Old Opry stuff...I'm an expert on old-school Country & Western. Henry's portrayal of "Haven Hamilton," a pompous, self-absorbed "patriarch" of the scene was spot-on, and the delivery of that single line was so precise and deadly that I can still hear it, decades after seeing the film.

R.I.P., Henry.

He was great as the judge in Boston Legal as well. I'll miss him.
