Morgan Woodward, Mirrored-Sunglasses Boss in 'Cool Hand Luke,' Dies at 93

Quote:
Morgan Woodward, the silent, menacing mirrored-glasses boss dubbed "The Man with No Eyes" in Cool Hand Luke, has died. He was 93.

Woodward died Friday morning at his home in California, the Fielder House Museum in Arlington, Texas, confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. They house a large portion of his film and television memorabilia in their "Woodward Room."

A stalwart of the Western genre, he guest-starred in a record 19 episodes of Gunsmoke (and its 1992 television movie), 12 episodes of Wagon Train, across nine seasons on Dallas as oil-man Marvin "Punk" Anderson and as Hugh O'Brian's deputy on 80 episodes of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp.

His prolific television career also included Bonanza, The Waltons, The Lucy Show (with John Wayne guest-starring), Hill Street Blues, MGM's series Logan's Run and Star Trek, on which he was the first victim of Mr. Spock's telepathic "Vulcan mind meld."

I used to "know" him because I saw him all the time in Malibu when I was working for surf filmmaker Hal Jepsen. They were pretty good friends. Dale used to rag on Hal about his drinking...A LOT.
Dale was a straight-edge kind of guy, no booze and no dope.

Dick Dale was a sweet soul, a bit badass and fiery at times but I call it passion. He had a big heart and just wanted to be the cool Daddy-o that spread the love around.
I don't know if The Malibu Inn is rightly referred to as his home base but the man probably lit that place up more than two hundred times in his career. He battled rectal cancer, kidney failure and diabetes for the last twenty years.

My heart goes out to Lana, his darling wife. She's an MS-er just like my Karen.

How is Karen these days? Is she still Relapsing-Remitting? Tecfidera and D3 is working really well for me. I seem to be in remission, with no new symptoms at all.
