A Tragic End To A Desperate Search

Posted in Breaking News! on February 26, 2010 by hollywoodshow

Actor Andrew Koenig, who had been missing since February 14, committed suicide, his father told reporters after his son’s body was found Thursday in a park in Vancouver, British Columbia.  “My son took his own life,” Walter Koenig said at a news conference in the park. The body of the former “Growing Pains” star was found by several friends who conducted their own search of Stanley Park, where Andrew Koenig liked to walk, his father said.

Koenig, 41, was reported missing by his parents after he did not board a flight to Los Angeles from Vancouver last week. Walter Koenig — himself an actor, known for his role as Pavel Chekov in the “Star Trek” series — flew to Vancouver with his wife, Judy, on Tuesday to help with the search.

Koenig fell in love with Vancouver in 1988 when he first visited to film an episode of the TV show “21 Jump Street,” his father said. Koenig appeared in 25 episodes of “Growing Pains” from 1985 to 1989, playing Richard “Boner” Stabone.  He performed at The Improv and had roles in movies that included “NonSeNse,” “InAlienable,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Batman: Dead End.” He also acted on television in “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “G.I. Joe,” “My Two Dads,” “21 Jump Street,” “My Sister Sam” and “Adam-12,” the Web site said, and edited, directed, produced and wrote a number of films.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Andrew’s family and friends.

Farewell To A Legend…

Posted in Breaking News! on February 18, 2010 by hollywoodshow

Hollywood is bidding farewell to another of our beloved legends.  Kathryn Grayson died in her sleep Wednesday at her home in Los Angeles at age 88. 

Grayson’s youthful ambition was to sing opera, but she wasn’t able to accomplish that dream until after her movie career ended. While still a teenager, she was placed under contract at MGM at a time when the studio was assembling a stable of musical talent that would dominate the era of great musicals.

She played the title role in Andy Hardy’s Private Secretary and sang Strauss’s Voices of Spring. Mayer was convinced that he had a future star.  She was cast in three minor films, including a musical with Abbot and Costello, then played Gene Kelly’s girlfriend in a wartime revue that included major MGM stars, Thousands Cheer.

Anchors Aweigh, a 1945 hit with Kelly and Frank Sinatra, confirmed her star status. Her bell-like soprano made her the ideal co-star with Hollywood’s full-voiced male singers in operettas and other musicals. She starred in Showboat and Kiss Me Kate with Howard Keel, two with Mario Lanza, one with Gordon MacRae.

Other musicals included Two Sisters from Boston, Ziegfeld Follies, Till the Clouds Roll By, That Midnight Kiss, The Toast of New Orleans, Lovely to Look At, The Desert Song and So This Is Love.
