Abe Vigoda, 94, not a hoax this time
« on: January 26, 2016, 02:04:11 PM »
Character actor Abe Vigoda passed away today,  January 26, 2016,  according to his daughter Carol Vigoda Fuchs.   He was best known for playing Det. Fish on Barney Miller which aired back in the 1970's.     There have been many hoaxes of his passing since 1982,  and even he played it off in good humor.

Always remember him best as Tessio in The Godfather. I never watched Barney Miller.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

IDP, Barney Miller was good TV.
Quite a cast of eclectic characters

He had a face for deadpan humor.

RIP Abe.
