"During the 1960s he wrote American television episodes of The Untouchables, Combat! and Mr Broadway."

I remember the first two with Robert Stack, and Vic Morrow, but what of the third?*

* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Broadway
with Craig Stevens who I remember most in his "Peter Gunn" TV series.

"Mr. Broadway aired following the new Gilligan's Island sitcom, starring Alan Hale, Jr., and Bob Denver, and preceding the durable western series, Gunsmoke, starring James Arness. Its competition was the Saturday Night Movie on NBC and the second half of The Lawrence Welk Show and the first half of The Hollywood Palace on ABC.[1]

Back in the 1960s as a teenager our family watched Bob Denver as Gilligan and then the Saturday Night Movie I guess, or Hollywood Palace**. My parents would watch Lawrence Welk because I remember the music as heard in the Winter after our skiing for the day at Loon Mountain.


** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hollywood_Palace

I think I remember: "The Jackson 5 ***made their first national television appearance on the October 14, 1969 episode."

*** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jackson_5 [ too much to read right now to branch out to whatever. (;-) ]

About the same time was "The Cowsills" too. Remember them?

Some great links, Joe. I see the obit has a photo of Goodman with legendary director Sam Peckinpah. Peckinpah is well known for The Wild Bunch (1969) and Straw Dogs (1971). I like his version of The Getaway (1972) with Steve McQueen much better than the 1994 remake.

I have been a Gilligan's Island fan since I was a kid. People sometimes say it's a junk show, but I don't believe it.

The Rolling Stones made their first American TV appearance on The Hollywood Palace in June 1964. Host Dean Martin made some jokes about them on the show, and years later the band said they didn't care for that. But I have seen that part of the show and Martin's jabs seemed pretty mild to me.
