He was truly a skilled actor.

He was one who respected the military. His first film was " To the Shores of Tripoli (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0035447/) "

Very sad to hear this. It's hard to believe he was 96 yrs old.
Rest in peace. :(

He was born in Detroit and grew up in Muskegon. Muskegon only has two famous people who grew up there-Harry Morgan is the one they are proud of.

I mostly remember him from M*A*S*H.







Jim Bakker is the other famous person from Muskegon. They're not so proud of that.

For me it was Officer Bill Gannon, who brought his lunch in a fishing tackle box. That fishing tackle box was a running strand of humor in Dragnet. Sgt Joe Friday was always astounded at how much his skinny assistant could eat.

Some of the really old movies give credit to Henry Morgan; later he began using Harry.

I'll miss him.....:(

When they first said Harry Morgan on the news, I could have swore it was Frank Burns, not Potter. Just got the names mixed up. I didn't even realize he was still alive. Potter provided so many variations to call BS on somebody. Road apples, horse hockey, meadow muffins. He was a great part of a great show, playing that regular army leader in the midst of the insanity that was the 4077th.

Larry Linville(Frank Burns) died in 2000. As for Potters variations on BS, you forgot mule fritters and bull cookies.
