Murray Hamilton's next to last role
19 June 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Just watched this episode and while I'm not a GG devotee, I was drawn to remain in front of the box during this episode by the appearance of Murray Hamilton. More specifically, I was quite shocked at his appearance - that of a gaunt, emaciated-looking and frail old man. I was aware that he died in the mid eighties of cancer, and his condition looks apparent in this episode.

He plays Blanche's father with accentuated southern country tone and garb, even though he's only a dozen years older than was Rue McClanahan in real life. Consequently it was difficult to believe his character was her father. Much is made by Dorothy of the Southern colloquialisms used by Blanche and her father, though they weren't especially funny in the first instance. A couple of mild chuckles typically emanate from Sofia attempting to intimidate a neighbour with whom the GGs are in dispute over a tree.

Formula comedy, but notable as Murray Hamilton's next to last role before his untimely passing.
