Richard Stahl dead at 74

Richard StahlJust the other day I was wondering what happened to Richard Stahl. He was so funny in so many character parts, and then he seemed to vanish. He had been battling Parkinson's Disease for the past ten years, and died last Sunday in Los Angeles.

Stahl was in tons of TV shows over the past 40 years, including All in the Famly, Columbo, Laverne and Shirley, Benson, Good Times, Maude, Bonanza, That Girl, Love, American Style, Happy Days, Soap, Barney Miller, The Facts of Life, the original Love Boat TV movie, and was a regular on the 80s sitcom It's A Living. I'll always remember him from several very funny appearances in The Odd Couple. He was also in several movies, including Five Easy Pieces, Billy Jack, and Slaughter House-Five.

(That's him on the right in the photo, being attacked by Son of Blob.)

When I read the obit, I didn't remember the name. But when I saw his face, I realized that another great character actor was gone. I loved him in The Facts of Life and Night Court.
