Actor Robert Ginty, Age 60

Sad news via Thrilling Days of Yesteryear: actor Robert Ginty, seen as a guest star or regular on many TV series of the '70s and '80s, has passed away at the age of 60.

Ginty notably played T.J. on BAA, BAA BLACK SHEEP (aka THE BLACK SHEEP SQUADRON) and Anderson on THE PAPER CHASE -- two of my favorite TV shows of the late '70s. (Ginty, incidentally, was briefly married to his PAPER CHASE costar, Francine Tacker, who played Elizabeth Logan.) Both series hold up wonderfully and are being enjoyed by my children on DVD.

Ginty is seen at the left in this BLACK SHEEP cast photo.
