RIP John Saxon.
He was in so many TV shows and films ..... never the leading man but always working.
He appeared in one of my favourite director's (Dario Argento) film - Tenebrae.

I'm sorry, to hear, see, and read this.  I do remember him.  He was in some really great, and classic movies.  He was another good actor, who will be missed.  My condolences, to his family, and friends.  R.I.P., John.

Cant forget my favorite MST3K episode and the last one Joel hosted, Michell, with Joe Don Baker.

“Johnny Mathis?  Get my gun!”

RIP

The first film I think I saw of his was Planet Earth, then A Nightmare on Elm Street.

What a bummer death this is. That makes 4 notables that died this weekend.

Edit: Treeduck, is your fourth pic from Planet Earth? It has been so long since I have seen it, but I remember it being quite a good movie.

A classic episode from Starsky & Hutch (1976).   Saxon plays a psycho-killer who thinks he's a vampire.

I can still remember scenes from that episode.  CREEPY!!!  :o :o

It was!  I had a huge crush on Janet Margolin, who played Harper-Smythe.

This was sad Pat.  It's weird.  I watched "Enter The Dragon" on blu-ray three nights before he passed away.
I also love him in "Nightmare On Elm Street.  Underrated Legend.

Yeah, a sad loss and not all that old by today's standards. Kirk Douglas was 20 years older than him and they died with within six months of each other.
