    Don’t forget “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”

    This year they put light around him instead of a Christmas tree.

    I don't care much for the late night talk shows, but I rolled during the "Decorating the Christmas Vigoda" segment.

    I liked him better on Barney Miller than on Fish. The christmas thingy on Conan was hilarious.

    Abe was so great as Ezra Braithwaite when he was on "Dark Shadows". "You never let go of a good name like Ezra!" He played Ezra in 1969 and Otis in 1970. Otis was an interesting character during a time period when the storylines were quite bizarre.
    • Otis Green: (1840 Storyline) a mass murderer turned antique dealer, Otis Green executed Judah Zachery by chopping off his head and then burying the headless body. He then disappeared along with the Judah's head. The petrified head then showed up later and made for a very bizarre storyline.
