Died Today (August 26th): Ted Knight

Festival Reviews

tedknightTed Knight (1923–1986)

Born: December 7, 1923 in Terryville, Connecticut, USA
Died: August 26, 1986 (age 62) in Los Angeles, California, USA

Married to:
Dorothy Knight (14 September 1948 – 26 August 1986) (his death) (3 children)

Knight eventually starred opposite Nancy Dussault in his own television series, Too Close for Comfort (1980), which had a healthy run despite the fact that Knight, as the lead, was more subdued than on the Mary Tyler Moore classic. Renamed “The Ted Knight Show” after it became a syndicated series, the series finally ended in 1986 only due to Knight’s terminal illness. The actor’s sole post-Ted Baxter movie role was as a judge in the golf-themed comedy, Caddyshack (1980), in which he continually bumped heads with the film’s star, Rodney Dangerfield.
