Ivan Dixon of Hogans Heroes Fame dies at 76 Actor Ivan Dixon, who brought the problems and promise of contemporary blacks to life in the film "Nothing But a Man" and portrayed the levelheaded POW Kinchloe in TV's "Hogan's Heroes," has died. He was 76. Dixon died Sunday at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte after a hemorrhage, said his daughter, Doris Nomathande Dixon of Charlotte. He had suffered complications from kidney failure, she said. Dixon, who also directed scores of television shows, began his acting career in the late 1950s. He appeared on Broadway in William Saroyan's 1957 "The Cave Dwellers" and in playwright Lorraine Hansberry's groundbreaking 1959 drama of black life, "A Raisin in the Sun." In the latter, he played a Nigerian student visiting the United States, a role he repeated in the film version. While not a hit, the 1964 "Nothing But a Man," in which Dixon co-starred with Abbey Lincoln, also drew praise as a rare, early effort to bring the lives of black Americans to the big screen.

Harry Spear - The Lost Rascal Harry Spear was one of the leading men in the Our Gang/Little Rascals comedies in the late silent period of 1927 to 1929. Before joining the popular Our Gang series, Spear appeared in several Buck Jones westerns. Spear's first appearance in an Our Gang comedy was in Chicken Feed when he was five. He became a popular member of the gang, notable for often donning an oversized bowler hat. At the dawn of the sound era, newcomer Jackie Cooper took over the role as the leader/tough guy in the gang, replacing Spear. Spear's final Our Gang film was Bouncing Babies. After departing the series, Spear briefly entered vaudeville, entertaining audiences with a dancing and monologue routine. By the mid-1940s, though, he had left the entertainment industry and had severed all ties with his former Our Gang alumni. Spear's whereabouts after the 1940s remained a mystery for over half a century. However, several diligent Our Gang fans tracked Spear down in 1995. Residing in San Diego, California at the time, Spear (who went by his legal name of Harry Bonner) continually denied being the 'Harry Spear' of Our Gang fame for unknown reasons, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. From military service records, it was found that Harry Spear served as a Chief Petty Officer in the US Navy during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. Spear died of kidney cancer on September 22, 2006 in San Diego at age 85.

Jon-Erik Hexum Odd Death 1984 Jon-Eik Hexum was a 26-year-old actor with a promising future when he was fatally injured on the set of Cover Up, a TV adventure series he was starring in. On October 12, 1984, the cast and crew were filming the seventh episode of the series, titled 'Golden Opportunity,' on Stage 17 of the 20th Century Fox lot. One scene called for Hexum's character to load blanks into a .44 Magnum handgun. When the scene did not go as the director had planned, there was a delay. Hexum became restless and impatient and began playing to lighten the mood. Apparently, he had unloaded all but one blank round. In what would appear to be a game of Russian roulette, at 5:15 p.m., he put the revolver to his right temple and pulled the trigger. Hexum was apparently unaware that blanks use paper or plastic wadding to seal gun powder into the shell. This wadding can be propelled from the barrel of the gun with enough force to cause severe injury or death if the weapon is fired within a few inches of the body, especially if pointed at a particularly vulnerable spot. Although the paper wadding in the blank that Hexum discharged did not penetrate his skull, the wad struck him in the temple with enough blunt force trauma to shatter a quarter-sized piece of his skull and propel the pieces into his brain, causing massive hemorrhaging. Hexum was rushed to Beverly Hills Medical Center, where he underwent five hours of surgery. On October 18, six days after the accident, Hexum was declared brain dead. With his mother's permission, his body was flown to San Francisco on life support, where his heart was transplanted into the body of a dying 36-year-old Las Vegas man at Pacific Medical Center. Hexum's kidneys and corneas were also harvested: One cornea went to a 66-year-old man with cataracts, the other to a young girl. One of the kidney recipients was a critically ill five-year-old boy, and the other was a 43-year-old grandmother of three who had waited eight years for a kidney. Skin that was donated was used to treat a 3˝-year-old boy with third degree burns. Hexum's death was ruled accidental. His mother later received an out-of-court settlement from 20th Century Fox Television and Glen A. Larson Productions, the production team behind Cover Up.

Jean Harlow 1911-1937 Jean Harlow was one of Hollywood's most popular actresses when she died of renal failure at the age of 26. Plagued with ailments throughout her short life, Harlow was in the midst of shooting scenes with co-star Clark Gable for the film Saratoga on May 29, 1937 when she was taken ill. (Ironically she was playing a scene in which she was supposed to be ill with a fever.) Between scenes she told Gable that she was not feeling well and asked to be taken to her dressing room. It was thought she just had the flu, and the shooting schedule would be delayed only a day or two, but when Harlow's condition worsened, doctors knew Harlow was in far worse shape than initially thought. Kidney failure was a death sentence in 1937. When Harlow succumbed on June 7 filmgoers were shocked. MGM shut down for the day of Harlow's funeral. She was interred in her crypt wearing a dress she had worn in the film Libeled Lady. Saratoga was finished using long-range and short-range doubles for Harlow's scenes and was a surprising box office hit. Even today scholarly audiences watch Saratoga to see if they can tell which scenes are truly Harlow's and which are the doubles'.
