Last week, Television lost two great leading actors. So in memory
of those two great actors I show you videos with two significant shows
which starred Dick Van Patten and Patrick Macnee. First I could

favorite shows at the time and one I never missed, but I'm going to

syndication during most of those years and beyond. Dick Van
Patten co-starred as "Nel." Check this one out....
Patrick Macnee starred in "The Avengers" which aired on British TV
