10. OBITUARIES
Actor Edward Ashley died last May at the age of 95 (1904-2000). Ashley had the distinction of playing commissioners in two of the Tarzan films, in the Johnny Weissmuller "Tarzan and the Mermaids" (1948) and the Lex Barker "Tarzan's Peril" (1951). They were small parts but were graced by Ashley's self-effacing demeanor. During his long career he had roles in scores of movies, including: Pride and Prejudice (1940), Maisie Was a Lady (1941), Black Swan (1942), Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome (1947), Macao (1952), El Alaméin (1953), Elephant Walk (1954),  Court Jester (1956), Darby's Rangers (1958) and many more.

X Brands ~ Jock Mahoney fans will recall the actor X Brands who played his Indian companion Pahoo-Ka-a-Wah on Mahoney's "Yancy Derringer" TV series. Although he often played Indians, Mr. Brands was not a Native American. He passed away at the age of 72 (1927-2000). He had roles in countless TV series: Gunsmoke, Mission Impossible, Bonanza, Rawhide, Maverick, Bat Masterson, etc. as well as many movies.
