    Actor steve Forrest best known from S.W.A.T. died May 18 at the age of 87.

    Genre fans will remember him from the hour long Twilight Zone episode, "Parallels" and the Night Gallery episode "Waiting Room"

    Rest in peace, to a classic, all-American, square jawed actor from the 1960s and 70s.

    Sad to hear. The Parrallel is one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes.

    Best known to me as "The Baron" of course. Great show, great character. Sad loss.

    For western buffs, he'll be remembered as the vile Manon on GUNSMOKE, who pistol-whipped Sam the bartender, shoots Festus, then rapes Miss Kitty (does he shoot her in the back too?)

    I think he was the basis for the villain described at the beginning of ROMANCING THE STONE, he did everything but shoot pet dogs in this episode.

    But I guess he was compensating for not being endowed. Kitty sez something like "you're not half the man Matt Dillon is" and I'm assuming she isn't referring to his hat size.
