Frederic Forrest 1926 - 2023, uncredited role on DS
« on: June 24, 2023, 07:19:32 PM »
"The Rose" and "Apocalypse Now" actor Frederic Forrest has passed, and I noticed today in his filmographies that one of his earliest roles was as a Blue Whale customer in 1967.  I saw ep #137 not long ago and will have to watch it again.  I had no idea!

Wow, he's all over the scenes in the Blue Whale:  smoking, dancing, seated, standing, walking, laughing, hugging, drinking.  ALL OVER.

Watch DS #137 on Tubi

I remember seeing Frederic Forest in that DS episode; Mr. Forest left an indelible impression on me after his appearance (and gruesome death) in “Apocalypse Now.”

It’s cool to spot young actors at the beginning of their careers during those first year episodes of DS. KLS wrote that Susan Sullivan appeared as a ghost on DS. Although, I don’t remember seeing her on DS.

Of course, actor Alan Feinstein appeared on DS as that obnoxious jerk who tries to bird-dog Joe Haskell by dancing very passionately with an all-too-willing Carolyn Stoddard in the Blue Whale, just before Joe very understandably punches the creep in the labanza and knocks him on his keester.  [easter_angry] [easter_evil]

And, it was great fun seeing the lovely and talented Marsha Mason as a Leviathan/vampire very early in her distinguished acting career.

Requiem aeternam, Mr. Forest.

How interesting. I'm definitey going to have to check the ep out because I can't say I noticed him in the past. But from what you say, I must have been blind.  [easter_cheesy]  Though more likely is that I was giving the lion's share of my attention to the main characters in the scenes.  [easter_wink]

Exactly.  And in the last few years, anyway, if a character didn't say "must", would you or I have noticed them?  [easter_wink]
