Hollywood loses two more

Hollywood is mourning the passing of horror legend Wes Craven and actor-singer Dean Jones this week.

Craven, of course, was the brains behind the original "Nightmare on Elm Street" film series, as well as "Last House on the Left", and the horror-satire "Scream" series, which has been adapted into a TV series at MTV.

Jones, a star of both film & Broadway, is better known for a string of Disney movies in the 60's & 70's, including "The Love Bug", "The Ugly Dachshund", and "The Shaggy DA", but also logged a intermittent TV career as well, including the TV adaptation of Herbie, The Love Bug, The Chicago Teddy Bears, and 1962's naval comedy, Ensign O'Toole. Jones succumbed to Parkinson's disease at 84 on Tuesday.

Following is a clip from O'Toole, which includes a short bit with a pre-F-Troop Ken Berry.

Rest in peace.
