Flashback Happy Times Recently Dead

Larry Hagman, star of the daytime soap The Edge of Night, the sitcom I Dream of Jeannie, and the nighttime soap Dallas, died of cancer yesterday at a Dallas hospital. So said a spokesman for actress Linda Gray, his longtime co-star on the Texas-set series. He was 81. Hagman, whose mother, Mary Martin, originated the role of Peter Pan on Broadway, also suffered from cirrhosis of the liver after many years of drinking every day, mostly champagne, and mostly starting at 9AM. “The drinking sometimes made it harder to remember lines,” he told People in 1995, “but I liked that constant feeling of being mildly loaded.” After a liver transplant, he swore off liquor forever. Teetotaling didn’t stop the festivities, however. Known as the unofficial mayor of Malibu, Hagman lived for decades in an oceanfront house, where he often led impromptu crazy parades on the beach while wearing outlandish costumes. And a little-known fact – to us anyway – is that he had a kind of hat fetish, as evidenced by the above shots of let’s call him Larry Hatman from a July 21, 1979, issue of TV Guide. Below, those nutty eyebrows. (via latimes; images via sissydude)
