Darryl Hickman only appeared in three episodes of "Dobie Gillis," OP.

Be comforted. There are still some Mouseketeers out there.

And Frankie Avalon, Paul Anka and Fabian (screaming my head off)!

Yeah R 2...but he was also the head producer

His brother, Dwayne Hickman, passed away January 9, 2022 at age 87.

Darryl was 92.

Will CBS Daytime dedicate an episode of "Love of Life" to him?

by Anonymousreply 8May 24, 2024 9:24 PM

Awww. I always liked him. He was born on the same day as my mother.

That joke just never ceases to be funny and fresh.

Op is a bit confused…

by Anonymousreply 11May 24, 2024 11:32 PM

Maynard’s dead, OP.

So is Chatsworth Osbourne Jr, for what it’s worth.

Trivia - Writers used “Osbourne” because it was Bob Denver’s middle name and they thought it was funny. Steve Franken, who played Chatsworth, was the cousin of Al Franken.

Darryl was cute. This is an Alfred Hitchcock Presents starring Darryl. Nehemiah Persoff is also in it, a well known character actor of the 1950s and 1960s who died in 2022 at age 102.

He delivered DL-level snark about Gene Tierney in his DVD commentary to Leave Her to Heaven--but without the wit or eloquence. Tierney was the better person by far, IMO.

There's a kind of genius to "Leave Her to Heaven" in that you at least partially sympathize with Gene Tierney's character when she tricks Hickman's character into drowning because he's been so annoying. He's so incredibly needy that he won't even let Cornel Wilde be alone with her on their honeymoon!

R13, what did he say?

by Anonymousreply 18May 25, 2024 1:36 AM

Darryl Hickman was good looking almost until the end. 92 years old is a hell of a good run.

I always thought the name had something to do with the two major streets in the San Fernando Valley: Chatsworth and Osborne (no 'u').

by Anonymousreply 21May 25, 2024 2:55 AM

Those aren’t the two major Valley streets…and they were nothing in 1959.

by Anonymousreply 22May 25, 2024 3:25 AM

I didn't mean they were THE major streets -- just major streets in the Valley. Which they were then and still are.

I just saw him in Joe Smith, American.

R13 yes I recall his disparaging comments about Gene's acting. But Darrly was never the movie star she was and not even the TV star his brother was.

by Anonymousreply 25May 25, 2024 4:53 AM

His commentary on Leave Her to Heaven was a previous recorded interview that they spliced into the commentary track. That’s why it made no sense in connection with the scene being played out. It was very off putting.

by Anonymousreply 26May 25, 2024 5:39 AM

'The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis' starring his brother Dwayne, is my earliest recollection of television. Next was 'Leave It to Beaver.'

by Anonymousreply 27May 25, 2024 5:45 AM

R26 - I don't think that's right. I seem to remember him referring to something Gene does in a scene as - gasp - indicating.

by Anonymousreply 28May 25, 2024 6:55 AM

Coincidence? I found his commentary so annoying and so disjointed that I went onto a film forum somewhere (this was years ago, I forget) to see if anyone else had a problem with it and someone posted that he’d been interviewed but he wasn’t actually watching the film when it was taped. It was just his recollections of the film.

by Anonymousreply 29May 25, 2024 7:37 AM

Odd. I just watched him last week in '𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞 𝐋𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐚 𝐈𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬' (1946).

One of my favorite child actors. Over 60 years appearing in nearly 100 films in the industry is noteworthy. Here he is at a still boyish 85 talking about his stint in Tea and Sympathy, his first date with Elizabeth Taylor, and most of his best friends being gay, including Roddy McDowall.

But his take on Tea and Sympathy is wrong because the John Kerr character is not gay.

Fascinating interview with Robert Osborne, plus Jane Withers, Dickie Moore and Margaret O'Brien.

Jane Withers was a doll.

I was a little kid at the time I saw the Hitchcock episode R12 links to. I was completely surprised by the ending.

Other than June Lockhart, are there any other actors still alive who appeared in films from the 1930s?

by Anonymousreply 36May 29, 2024 10:57 AM

R36, Terry Kilburn, who played Tiny Tim in the 1938 movie version of "A Christmas Carol," in which June Lockhart also appeared (her father played Bob Cratchit), is still alive at 97.
