Aw, I was wondering about him just a month or so ago (I was on a MASH rerun kick). RIP indeed to Col Sherman T Potter - and also to Dragnet's Bill Gannon.

:( RIP

I just looked up to see how old he was a couple of weeks ago while watching a MASH reunion show on TV Land.

He had a long, varied and successful acting career and was very talented.

He was in Madame Bovary with Jennifer Jones and Van Heflin too, as the village simpleton Emma wanted Charles to perform surgery on. He was a talented actor.

He was a hoot in Support Your Local Gunfighter.

I remember being suprised when he was arrested for domestic battery at the age of 82. In my mind, he was always Col. Potter, and Col Potter would never beat his wife. :(

Oh well. RIP.

Col Potter was probably his best known character, but I 1st saw and heard him as Pete Porter on the 1950s December Bride.

He had a good, long run....;)

RIP.

Knowing he was way up there in years, I've always checked every couple of months or so to see if he was still among us - the last time I did this was a few weeks ago, when TV Land was running a M*A*S*H marathon.

RIP, Harry Morgan/Colonel Potter.

I remember that from childhood.
He was a fixture in so many shows/movies.

Great in all of them; but, iconic as Col. Potter.
RIP
