Mission: Impossible information

murder she wrote william windom diesA very familiar face to television viewers, actor William Windom, has died from congestive heart failure at the age of 88. He passed away on August 16th at his home in Woodacre, California.

Windom was born in New York City in 1923 and was the great-grandson of the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury of the same name. He later served in the Army during World War II.

His first movie role was as Mister Gilmer, the prosecutor of Tom Robinson in 1962’s To Kill a Mockingbird but he had been appearing on television for years before that.

Windom’s TV work spanned six decades and it’s hard to name a classic TV show that he didn’t appear on at least once. They include roles on Ben Casey, The Donna Reed Show, The Lucy Show, Twilight Zone, 77 Sunset Strip, The Fugitive, Bonanza, That Girl, The Virginian, The Waltons, The FBI, Mission: Impossible, Hawaii Five-0, The Streets of San Francisco, Medical Center, Dallas, Barney Miller, Amen, LA Law, Newhart, Judging Amy, Ally McBeal, Providence, and on and on.
