Cleavon Little

Hard to believe it's been more than 2 decades since the death of Cleavon Little, one of my favorite performers but one who, sadly, Hollywood never seemed to know what to do with. Remembered mostly for BLAZING SADDLES, a sore point to him toward the end, Cleavon was an Emmy and  Tony Award-winning singer/dancer/actor and deserved to be recalled for so much more. R.I.P.

  1. I always enjoyed him in the role of the Reverend Hawthorne Dooley in The Walton's pilot movie The Homecoming.
