They seemed to be all over television in the 1970s but seem to have gone down the memory hole.

James Franciscus
Bradford Dillman
Karen Valentine
Lynda Day George
Joanna Pettet
Marjoe Gortner

Any others?

Another actor who seemed to pop in roles great and small during the 70s was John Saxon.

I remember Marjoe Gortner from the night-time soap on CBS, "Falcon Crest".
I remember Karen Valentine from various made-for-tv movies in the 80s.
Some "old" stars I only knew of as panelists on game shows in the 1980s.

James Franciscus died in 1991
Bradford Dillman
Karen Valentine
Lynda Day George age has not been kind to her
Joanna Pettet retired in 1990
Marjoe Gortner hasn't done anything since 1995

Troy Donahue - died in 2001
John Saxon - at 78 he is still very active with many credits in the last 10 years.
Jan Michael Vincent - broke his neck in car crash - DUI - and has had problems, works as a security guard in TX

Glynnis O Connor - still very active in performing

a quick update for the forgotten folks.

James Garner? doesn't belong on the list - The Notebook...
