SANFORD & SON CAST AND PRODUCTION CREW (Living as of 8-18-2015)

 

Writers: Norman Lear 27 Jul 1922

Alan Simpson 27 Nov 1929 (DIED 2/8/2017)

Ray Galton 17 Jul 1930

 

Steptoe & Son co-writer Alan Simpson dead at 87.

​Didn't realize the connection (when I made the list) but it appears Norman Lear has given credit where credit is due (Simpson and Galton)

Death Notice for Olive Dunbar who has died aged 91. http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/theithacajournal/obituary.aspx?n=Olive-Joann-Dunbar&pid=184244383

I mention her because she played Bertha Bottomly in Big John, Little John which was one of my favourite shows when I were but a nipper.

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0241860/
