I never asked him for his autograph for the same reason I never told my fellow workers when he would come in for a take out order. I never put "Denver" on the ticket either. His wife would call and ask for me because she knew I wouldn't rat him out.
It was obvious he liked his privacy, and I respected him too much to cause him unwanted attention. He was not well. However, on occassion, he did public appearances and I could have gone to one I suppose, but I never did get around to it. Guess I thought I'd have more time to do so.
Cool Bob Crane story. Hogan's Heros is probably my favorite show. I have all 6 seasons on DVD.
I also have all 3 seasons of Gilligan's Island. Sorry, but I would have had to ask Mr. Denver for his autograph
at least once. I live about 5 hours from Princeton W,Va.. I would have loved to have met him. I used to smoke
so that made me like him even more. I think I would have loved meeting Ginger too. Always and still have a
fascination for her. I went to a strip club once and got a picture with a feature dancer who claimed to be her
daughter. If I find it I'll post it. Of course I'll have to censor it. Anyway, you're lucky and I'm jealous. Peace!
Since his hair was as longish as the days of Gilligan he looked like a granny type figure. He was nice though, and liked the fact I never let on to who he was when he would come in to pick up his orders. I never even asked him for an autograph, even though I loved him so much as a child and would have loved to have it.
I once met Bob Crane too. He performed in a Play in Chicago called "Beginners Luck" it was very funny. He signed Autographs after the show and when I went up to him, (I was only about 10, 11?) and because my hair had been cut short due to allergies, he asked me: "What's your name son?" I said Susan, and he laughed and shook my hand and said: "Well, what do ya know! I Boy named Sue" That is how he signed my autograph. To a boy named Sue, Bob Crane.
That's it for my brush with fame with old TV celebrities. lol Bet you wish you hadn't asked.
