    Bill Dana of "Jose Jimenez" fame dies at the age of 92.

    He had to retire the character due to "cultural changes" but good lord, the man had a great deadpan delivery.

    Comic Bill Dana, who won fame as 'Jose Jimenez,' dies at 92

    Wow----talk about name from the past. I "hated" the character, just could NOT understand how anyone thought it was funny. Of course I was under 10 y/o at the time so that might have figured into it all.

    BIll seemed to be another of that generation where being scandalous or "outrageous" was a key element to "popularity" as is the typical Hollywood scheme these days. If for this reason alone I'll miss Bill----not many like him left these days.

    Peace to his surviving family---I'll sure he'll be missed.

    Nice article on Bill in that link----thanks for sharing!
