I thought I would just drop your website a line that somehow the death of TV and Movie Actor Paul Burke on September 13th was overlooked.    He joined the cast of the 1958-63 TV series Naked City as Detective Adam Flint and received two Emmy nominations for his performance in that series. He also took over the starring role in the 12 O'Clock High TV series after actor Robert Lansing was fired by the show's producer in 1965.  Later TV series appearances include regular roles in Dynasty and Santa Barbara. His film credits include Valley Of The Dolls and The Thomas Crown Affair.    There is a comprehensive obituary written by Margalit Fox that appeared in The New York Times on September 16th.     Best Wishes,   Bill GoetzRetro Responds: Thanks, Bill- this one eluded us even though we were admirers of Mr. Burke's work.
