Hello fans,

Well you all voted and it was an overwhelming landslide to
KEEP the Celebrity Deaths section. So it's back.

But I need some help from all of you. I need your support.
All I'm asking if you see an advertisement for a product
and it's something you want. Just price it out elsewhere
and if all things are equal, order it from us. That's how
we can keep our newsletters free. Unfortunately Dead End
wasn't supported and the editor lost her job.

Now for today's featured celebrity. Do you remember or know 
who Dwayne Hickman is? The name sounded familiar to me but I 
couldn't think of what show I knew him from. The minute I saw 
his picture I remembered.

So let's catch up with Dwayne and see what he has been up
to since the old Dobie Gillis days. It's really a pretty
diverse career he has had.

Be Well,



  See if you know if the following ACTORS from THE GODFATHER 
  MOVIES have had a  visit from the "Grim Reaper":  

- James Caan - Played Sonny Corleone

- Abe Vigoda - Played Salvatore "Sally" Tessio

- Bruno Kirby - Played the Young Clemenza 

                 (Answer at the bottom)

DRYER BALLS - The Natural Fabric Softener...
Going Green Has Never Been So Easy!

TV Price: $13.99
OUR PRICE: $7.99

Dryer Balls are the safe, natural, easy way to soften 
fabrics while saving money on fabric softeners, dryer 
sheets and energy. Best of all...There's No Chemicals!

The unique design relaxes the fibers during the drying 
cycle leaving clothes softer and towels more absorbent. 

As they tumble around in the dryer they lift and separate 
fabrics allowing air to flow more efficiently thus 
reducing drying time up to 25%. 

Use them over and over again and they last for years! Each 
package contains 2 Reusable, Non-Toxic Dryer Balls. Do
yourself and the environment a favor and grab a set. Visit:
Dryer Balls - The Natural Fabric Softener


TRIVIA: One of his earliest roles was an appearance in a
1942 'Our Gang' comedy.

Although at the show's debut his Dobie character was still a 
teenager in high school, Dwayne was already 25.

One of his co-stars in 'The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis' was
Bob Denver (yes that's Gilligan) who was his sidekick, Maynard.
Interestingly enough, Dwayne and Bob knew each other before
this as they attended college (Loyola) together.

Worked for Howard Hughes in 1970 when he went to work for 
Hughes Tool Co. His job was not at the tool company but instead
as a booking agent in Las Vegas for the Landmark Hotel.

Accomplished artist; has had many art gallery showings.

WHERE IS HE NOW: After Dobie Gillis, Dwayne found himself stereo-
typed as a "youngster" just at the time of his life when he was 
too old to play any further such roles. He appeared in some minor 
"beach" films and made an unsuccessful TV pilot for a program in 
which he was to play a young schoolteacher.

He did still work in the entertainment business but behind-the-
scenes. As mentioned above as a booking agent in Vegas. He too
became involved in several projects in production roles. 

Later he became a programming executive at CBS, a role which he 
has since spoofed by appearing as such in several on-camera roles. 
He also worked as a director on various episodes of television 
series, and also portrayed Dobie in two TV reunions, 'Whatever 
Happened to Dobie Gillis' and 'Bring Me the Head of Dobie Gillis.'

He wrote a book in the 1990's an autobiography is entitled 
"Forever Dobie."

While Dwayne does still act, there are just not many roles. He
was last seen on the screen in 2005. Nowadays he is busy 
promoting his paintings at Gallery showings all around the
