He was my first TV crush and I never really knew his name at the time but he was in a short lived TV show in 1974ish called 'Here We Go Again'...a comedy about divorced couples.
I came across his name looking for something else on the internet and bells rang across the decades.
He used to appear on a lot of game shows in the 70s. Here he is on Tattletales @ link.
One of my first celebrity crushes, long before I understood what it meant.
He was sex on a stick in the 70s!!
He was the guest star on The Rockford Files shown today on MeTV, which is why I found this thread. His character was a blackmailer and the murder victim which Rockford was suspected of killing. He was really sexy, but all of the pants which he wore did not fit well, including swim trunks. For one thing, the waist on all of them was several inches above the navel, the way old men used to wear them.
He reminds me of Sal Romano from Mad Men
I, too, thought he was dead until I realized I was confusing him with Dick Shawn, who died fairly young.
I used to confuse him with George Hamilton.
HYMIE!!!!! HE WAS FUCKING HOT.
It was alluded to in R4, but no one has actually mentioned that he was the original Broadway Conrad Birdie.
Except at r14.
How does he pronounce his surname?
R33 OOPS! Sorry I missed that.
Eldergay @ R32
I've always heard go-tee-AY. That's how it would be in French, anyway.
And that's how he pronounces it, R36.
Has it been pointed out that his late wife played Sgt. Carter's girlfriend on Gomer Pyle?
He had a hairy chest, right?
I may be mistaken but I remember Dick Gautier doing soft core porn at one point in his career. I'm pretty sure it was him though. Great body.
He wore so much eyeliner he eventually went blind. Today, Dick is a blind painter.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
