Al94 22:28 24 Nov 2012 His mother was Mary Martin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Martin Quickbeam 07:20 25 Nov 2012 Now I don't get it. flycatcher1 10:05 25 Nov 2012 A194 I regret that you are wrong but also right. In Dallas JR's Mother was Barbara Bel Geddes. ( Until she died. ) JR is really Larry Hagman and his Mother was Mary Martin. I am embarrassed to know such detail but I had a thing about Barbara Bel Geddes in my distant youth. Forum Editor 11:36 25 Nov 2012 Bearing in mind that he admitted to drinking five bottles of champagne a day I think his liver did extremely well to keep him going for so long. Fruit Bat /\0/\ 12:17 25 Nov 2012 He was on his second liver - but appears to be one shot too many that killed him. He had a good run and brought pleasure to a lot of people so RIP an we'll enjoy the re-runs.
