  1. I always liked Dabs Greer especially the name. He was one of those character actors that showed up in every 60s TV show I ever watched. I last saw him in “The Green Mile” evidently still going strong. It’s nice to know he’s still around.

  2. em, my hat’s off to you. I mean, you know who Dabbs Greer is. To be honest, the name meant nothing to me beyond the wonderful sound of it. So I just looked up an image of Mr. Greer. Amazing. I must have seen him scores, if not hundreds, of times; prime-time television would have been impossibe without him. I had no idea what his name was, though.

  3. Unfortunately Dabs Greer passed away Saturday night 28 April, 2007. He was 90 years old and had kidney problems.
