    DON ADAMS
    AKA MAXWELL SMART
    RIP 2005

    If anyone has the exact date, please add.
    I fear the show may follow him to the grave and only a select few will remember.

    It's a shame he probably didn't have a chance to do some commentary on a dvd set or something.

    Yeah...that was sad when he died. I don't think he got the proper "coverage" he deserved. Many TV stars/comedians get full on reports when they die. I don't remember anything like that for him, just one little article buried somewhere in a newspaper. HE WILL BE MISSED!

I grew up watching that show - well reruns of that show..lol I'm only 21 so there's no way i could seen it when it first came out.. but yeah.. Don was a brilliant man.

    THE FOLLOWING IS A QUOTE FROM DON ADAMS' OBIT. HE WAS 82 WHEN HE PASSED.

     

    "Adams had an ``amazing memory' that allowed him to take an unusual approach to filming, Feldon said.

    Instead of learning his lines ahead of time he would have a script assistant read his part to him just once or twice. He invariably got it right but that didn't stop people from placing bets on it, she recounted. "
