    Thanks Robert63 for the information about Jack Bannon. I too remember him from Lou Grant but did not know he was Bea Benaderat's son or that he was married to Ellen Travolta.

    Did not know the name, but when I saw his face I remembered him from many shows. Had know idea he was Bea's son. RIP.

    His Mother Bea Benaderet died at age 62 on October 13, 1968, of lung cancer and pneumonia, and was survived by her second husband Gene Twombly and two children.[ She was entombed in Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery in North Hollywood. On October 17, four days after her death and the day after her funeral, Twombly died of a massive heart attack,[91] and was interred beside her.

    RIP, Jack.

    I don't recognize the face for some reason.
    I grew up on Green Acres, Petticoat Junction and the Hillbillies, but I don't remember him - never watched Lou Grant.

    Just. Don't. Do. It.

    Sad to hear about his death so remember him in
    St. Elsewhere and of course Lou Grant back in
    the 1980s.
    Carolyn(1958-2009) always in my heart.
