Barry Brown (Dana) - Academy Award Performance
15 November 2013 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I don't normally like to watch stories that involve disabled children, because they are usually incorrect portrayals, and exploitive. This episode is the exception however, because of Barry Brown's performance, which I can only describe as brilliant, and intuitive, and deserving of an academy award. I was sorry to read that he commit suicide in 1978, at age 27. He came from a very tragic, and dysfunctional family, with a sister who also commit suicide. Its sad, because he was such a great actor. Note: He was also in another Mod squad Episode called "The Uptight Town", where he was equally brilliant. Among his credits, he was on Marcus Welby MD, Barnaby Jones, Joe Forrester, Rhoda, Night Gallery, Police Woman.
