MASH's Harry Morgan Dies At 96

You probably know him best as Col. Sherman T. Potter. Unless you're my age, in which case he's Detective Bill Gannon.
Morgan's ability to play a variety of roles, dramatic and comedic, made him an actor in demand for half a century. He starred in about a dozen U.S. TV series starting in the 1950s and appeared in movies with some of Hollywood's biggest stars. He appeared in "The Ox-Bow Incident" in 1943 with Henry Fonda, "High Noon" in 1952 with Gary Cooper, "The Glenn Miller Story" in 1954 with Jimmy Stewart and "Inherit the Wind" in 1960 with Spencer Tracy. But it was his role on "M*A*S*H," the long-running series on the CBS network, that earned him his most fame.
