A twenty-seven-year-old, thin, bald Gavin MacLeod played Fallon. Gavin didn’t look 27 because of his bald head, but would not have been my first choice for the part. This is the new mob boss? I don’t think so! It wasn’t the bald head that made him wrong for the part, but Gavin lacks the voice and physical presence compared to others in similar roles.
A thirty-four-year-old Jack Weston played Green. Jack played the role correctly as he did many of his parts throughout the years.
Notice in the early scene at Mother’s from the floor level camera angle the 6’ 2” 230# Hope Emerson is as tall and heavier than Craig Stevens.
Emmett is Edie’s (Lola Albright) real life husband from May 1961 to 1975.
