In Memoriam: Richard Dawson (1932 - 2012)
Mom loved him as the host of Family Feud.
Dad loved him as Newkirk on Hogan's Heroes
And, of course, anybody who reads my blog loved him as Killian in The Running Man.
But to be perfectly honest, most people just loved him for being Richard Dawson, since he was almost most successful and beloved when he played himself... no doubt an idealized version of himself, but a version of himself all the same.
For whatever reason youtube has disabled the embedding of all clips from The Running Man, but watch this clip and tell me you don't love this guy too.
