FRANCES BERGEN, ACTRESS, DEAD AT 84

Actress Frances Bergen, wife of ventriloquist Edgar Bergen 
and mother of actress Candice Bergen, has died in Los Angeles 
at age 84. Bergen died from a prolonged illness Monday at 
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Los Angeles Times reported 
Wednesday. The model who portrayed "the Chesterfield girl" 
and "the Ipana girl" in magazines and on billboards appeared 
in several films and TV shows in the 1950s, but eventually 
set her own ambitions aside to be a foil for her husband and 
his dummy, Charlie McCarthy, the Times said. She picked up 
her acting career in the 1980s with roles in "American 
Gigolo," "Rich and Famous" and "The Sting II," but by then, 
instead of being "Edgar's wife," she was "Candy's mother."
But, the wife and mother said she had no regrets and would 
not have traded her family for a career. In addition to
Candice, she is survived by a son, Kris, and a granddaughter.

STANLEY CHERRY, FAMED TV WRITER, DEAD AT 74

Stanley Z. "Zack" Cherry, who wrote episodes of "Gilligan's 
Island" and "Flipper," died last month from cancer in 
California at the age of 74. Daily Variety reported that 
Cherry, who also produced and directed over 30 films during 
his Hollywood career, died on Sept. 27 in Studio City, Calif., 
from cancer. In addition to his work on such hit TV shows 
such as "The Addams Family" and "Petticoat Junction," Cherry 
had earned two national documentary awards while working for 
the California affiliate of NBC-TV. Teamed with his wife 
Carol, Cherry also offered his writing talents to the TV 
films "Carpool," "Cowboy" and "Illusions." After retiring 
from both TV and film, Cherry went on to garner a master's 
degree in psychology which he used to offer therapy to 
individuals with Hollywood-related issues. He is survived by 
his wife, two children, two stepsons, and 12 grandchildren.


ISABEL BIGLEY BARNETT, BROADWAY STAR, DEAD AT 80

Former Broadway star Isabel Bigley Barnett, who won a Tony 
award for her role in "Guys and Dolls," has died in Los 
Angeles at the age of 80. The Los Angeles Times reported
that Barnett, who was the last survivor of the famed 
Broadway production, died Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical 
Center from pulmonary disease. "She was the ideal ingenue," 
Institute of the American Musical President Miles Kreuger 
said of the woman who portrayed Sarah Brown in the long-
running musical. "She was pretty and had a beautiful voice 
and could act." "I remember 'If I Were a Bell' -- she 
brought such delightful humor, a subtle humor, to the sing-
ing of the song ... It really was a thrilling moment in 
the theater," he added. The paper said that Barnett, who 
became the first chairwoman of Palm Desert's McCallum 
Theatre in 2005, is survived by her husband, Lawrence R. 
Barnett, six children, 16 grandchildren, and four great-
grandchildren.


TAMARA DOBSON, ACTRESS, DEAD AT 59

Tamara Dobson, the actress best known for her portrayal of 
government agent Cleopatra Jones in two Hollywood films, has 
died at the age of 59. Dobson, whose big break came in 1973 
when she took on the title role in "Cleopatra Jones," died 
Monday in Baltimore, Md., from complications related to 
multiple sclerosis and pneumonia, the Baltimore Sun reported.
Dobson followed up her 1973 film, which fell into the 1970's 
"blaxploitation" film genre, by reprising the kung-fu fight-
ing role with the 1975 action film, "Cleopatra Jones and the 
Casino of Gold." The one-time tallest leading woman in film 
according to the "Guinness Book of World Records," the 6-foot-
2-inch former model also helped influence the fashion industry 
with her degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art. 
She is survived by her brother, Peter Dobson, and her sister, 
Darilyn Dobson.

Actor Gene Janson has died in Chicago, presumably of a heart 
attack, after slumping over onstage during a performance of 
Remy Bumppo Theatre's "The Best Man." "We were 20 minutes 
into the play when he suddenly collapsed," said spokeswoman 
Stephanie Kulke. Janson was taken to Lincoln Park Hospital 
where he died around 4 p.m., the Chicago Sun-Times reported 
Thursday. He was in his early 70s. The actor earned critical 
praise for his role as former President Arthur Hockstadder 
in Gore Vidal's "The Best Man."  With a career spanning 
nearly five decades, Janson starred in numerous films, 
including, "The Blues Brothers," "Blink," "While You Were 
Sleeping" and "My Best Friend's Wedding." His wife, Peggy,
