Remembering John Mahoney and Louis Zorich

February 10, 2018

It is sad that two superb actors, each associated with another, Olympia Dukakis, died in the past week.

Both John Mahoney, not even 80 and Olympia’s husband Louis Zorich are no longer here.

Oh, but they did and leave fine work and memories with us.

I cite two sports related ones.

Mr. Zorich, playing a grandfather on “Brooklyn Bridge” had told his grandson Gil Hodges knew him. This was not true.

“Mr. Hodges” (sadly, the real Gil had been dead for 20 years having died at less than fifty) keeps the secret and Mr. Zorich’s character calls “Mr. Hodges” a mensch. By all accounts, Gil was one.

Mr. Mahoney, played White Sox manager “Kid” Gleason in the film, “Eight Men Out,” calling them the best team he was ever associated with, in a long career.

 

The fabulous John Mahoney, pictured above had dinner and conversation (only, but significantly) with Olympia Dukakis in the film, “Moonstruck.”
