Robert Culp died Wednesday near his Hollywood Hills home, he was 79. Culp was an actor in television shows including “Trackdown” (1957 to 1959), “I Spy” (1965 to 1968) and my favorite “The Greatest American Hero” (1981 – 1983). I Spy was ground breaking for its time because it broke down racial barriers. It was a show about Spies that involved an “EQUAL” relationship between a black and white man. BTW - the other star of the series was a comedian by the name of Bill Cosby. Back in the mid to late 60’s it was a turbulent time in our nation regarding race. Culp could have easily said no to a shared billing with a black man. Instead of being a hater, Culp grew to have a great professional and personal relationship with Cosby. I personally enjoyed watching him act because he was a versatile actor. Whether it was comedy, drama or action he always did his thing. He will truly be missed.
