I was really sad when I learned this news. He was a wonderful actor and will be dearly missed. RIP Mr. Brooks.

Unhappy

I've been watching F-Troop on DVD. Joe Brooks was hilarious as the visually challenged Trooper Vanderbilt who was usually assigned to the lookout tower.

I still have a picture that was taken back in the 60's of me and my brother and dad and 'Vanderbilt'.

Wow, how cool!

Was Brooks in his Vanderbilt character and F-Troop uniform in the pic, or is it "just" Brooks himself?
