Never to be Forgotten: George "Foghorn" Winslow 1946-2015 and Tony Longo 1961-2015

The deaths of two character actors are being reported today, different as chalk and cheese and both gone at what seems to a geezer like me a very young age.

George "Foghorn" Winslow was a child actor in the 1950s who main comedic talent was a bass-baritone voice coming out of a pre-pubescent kid. His best known films are Gentlemen Prefer Blondes with Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe and Monkey Business with Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers and yet again Marilyn Monroe, but he gains a mention her with the light-hearted sci-fi flick The Rocket Man, which was about a kid finding a ray gun that forced people to tell the truth.

Best wishes to the family and friends of George "Foghorn" Winslow, from a fan. He is never to be forgotten.

Tony Longo has died at the age of 53, and you don't have to be a geezer to think that is way too young. Longo was 6'6" and besides his imposing height, he was either extremely ripped in certain roles or, later in his career, very fat. Some ethnic actors can avoid being in any genre work, especially Italians, Hispanics and African Americans, but Mr. Longo was featured in many genre films and TV shows, including Fangs, The X Files, They Came from Outer Space, Beauty and the Beast, Splash and Small & Frye.

Best wishes to the family and friends of Tony Longo, from a fan. He is never to be forgotten.
