Larry Riley had been on Knots Landing for five seasons playing cop-turned-attorney Frank Williams when in February 1992 audiences were shocked when they saw his haggard appearance after the show had been on a five-month hiatus. Larry explained had he had lost 80 pounds (from 220) during that time due to kidney trouble which he attributed to "high blood pressure" and would be on dialysis for the remainder of his life. After his death only four months later, his widow Nina disclosed that Larry's renal failure was actually due to AIDS. See more »
I grew up with this show and watched it the entire run.So much better and alittle more down to earth then the other shows, Knots was a show with Great characters and characters you either loved or loved to hate. I wish they'd bring it back for more Movie specials.
