    Yeah! I saw that this morning and the funny thing was that I was just driving past his horse farm in Brentwood this past weekend!

    I still watch re-runs of M*A*S*H* even when I have the whole collection on DVD!

    Harry was a great guy!

    No more Buffalo Biscuits or Horse Hockey!!!

    Damn, great actor and I swear that I have seen every MASH episode at least twice in my lifetime! The diehard fans know that he actually originally appeared on MASH as Major General Steele, a crazy guy that wanted to move the camp closer to the front line!
    RIP Harry

    Yeah! remember in that episode Klinger comes up in his dress and the Colonel says, "Not now Margerie! I'm in the middle of inspecting the troops!" Or in end of that episode where he asks the black pilot to give them a song during the court martial? Then he starts doing the song and dance out of the tent!

    Awesome and funny guy that will be missed!

    I Googled him a couple of weeks ago when I saw him in an old movie on TV... "Support Your Local Sheriff".
    (I knew he was getting on in years and I was a bit surprised to see he was still alive.)

    He was a great actor and seemed like a genuinely good guy.

    Harry had a long career and I've seen him in quite a few roles. Hate to cast aspersions especially after someone is gone, but..
    --
    In 1996, Harry Morgan was arrested for beating up his wife. The couple
    were drinking and fighting at a party and the fight escalated after
    they returned home. The charges were dropped after Harry agreed to
    attend classes on spousal abuse.

    Kind of bad when you see an 80 year old man beating on his 70 something wife.

    Henry Morgan had a full life in movies and TV shows. He played villians and good guys equaly well. He will be missed.
