Obviously I don't know that much about his career, other than on Voyage. I really liked him on that show. In fact, about the only answers I got correct on this quiz were the ones that had to do with VTTBOTS. I did take a guess on the last question though and got that one right.

You know I was 7 years old when I first saw the 1959 Fly film, the same time Voyage to the Bottom of Sea was airing on ABC. For many years I always believed that Al and David Hedison were twins, until I did rmy own esearching.

I got 1/10. I only got #4 right. I never watched the VTTBOS. I never heard of David Hedison. I am probably the only one who didn't do both.

"Get to the lifeboats." That was a line from Irwin Allen's The Poseidon Adventure. That's what one of the characters said to Gene Hackman's character Reverend Scott. The actor playing that character looks and sounds like Bill Kirchenbauer who played Coach Lubbock in the sitcoms Growing Pains and Just the Ten of Us.

I saw The Poseidon Adventure on tv several years after it came out. Then I had nightmares about swimming through water with dead people floating in it. (shuddering)
I really liked that movie!
