It said in an obit I read today that he'd had dementia. Sad.
The Godseys were the poor man's Olesons. Corabeth couldn't hold a candle to Harriet.
MMMMM there's a steamy lesbo fantasy, Corabeth Godsey and Harriett Oleson diddling each other with candles !
My bf's uncle worked on the Walton's when he was in his early 20's. he said that every time Jim Bob would have a certain buddy on the set with him they would go off together. He could tell that he was excited because he was obviously well hung. The wardrobe person said he carried an extra arm in his pants.
Ha ha. There was an episode where the Godsey's daughter came home from art school in New York. She wanted to do "Torso studies" of the studly Walton's mountain men. She got one shirtless (Elizabeth's boyfriend, I believe)
and was rolling around with him. Her mother walked up and was (righteously) indignant. "Mother, you're positively Victorian!" the daughter shrieked. I laughed and laughed, what a little tramp.
