Larry Hagman, Korean War Vet, J.R. Ewing & Jeannie’s Guy (& a Big Liberal), RIP

By Debbie Schlussel

Last night, I learned of the death, Friday, of actor Larry Hagman of “Dallas” and “I Dream of Jeannie” fame. He was also a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and served during the Korean War, performing for troops in Europe during the conflict. And I always liked him because the roles he played were stark examples of the politically incorrect and the patriotic, something that now seems of a bygone, better era. Of note, he was married to the same woman (Maj Axelsson who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2008) for 58 years, until his death. But he was also a far-leftist, too (more on that, later).

Although I never got to watch Dallas when it was running on prime time–it was on Friday Nights, which is the Jewish Sabbath, and I never watched once it was in re-runs, I used to watch re-runs of “I Dream of Jeannie,” as a kid when I came home from school. I loved to watch the machinations of astronaut Major Tony Nelson who finds a genie (Barbara Eden) in a bottle, who serves him after he releases her. Today, a show like that would never be made because it would be seen by feminists all over the place as “sexist.” A woman in what was almost a bikini serving a bachelor and calling him, “Master”? Wouldn’t happen anymore on TV. Oh, and it was kind of a patriotic show, too. And we can’t have that–an astronaut and officer in the U.S. Armed Forces looking good. Today, we’d see a show about a dysfunctional one who beats the genie senseless, or something like that. Or we’d see a shirtless male genie serving a beast like Rosie O’Donnell or HOprah. It’s the only kind of sexism that gets the Sandra Fluke/Gloria Allred/Khawam-Kelley/Real Housewives/Beastesses of The View necessary seal of approval, these days. (And then there is always the Petraeus/Allen “I Dream of Paula/Jill” story.)

Even though I couldn’t watch Dallas, you couldn’t miss all of the magazine covers and talk all over America about “who shot J.R.” Ewing, the Texas oil titan played by Hagman. In those days before America was truly segmented into cable and the internet, a much larger chunk of America was glued to nighttime soaps, and the buzz about the identity of the shooter of J.R. Ewing was everywhere. You couldn’t miss it. And that’s because he was a larger than life villain. And Dallas was a larger than life show, the likes of which you rarely see anymore, where good (Patrick Duffy as J.R.’s brother, Bobby Ewing) and evil (Hagman’s J.R.) were black and white and not blurred the way it is today.


Today, the liberals who dominate pop culture and the media dismiss Dallas and everything else that was an ’80s hit, as some bad thing to be remembered as part of what they call, “the evil Reagan years.” Actually, those years were pretty good. Far better than what we have now. And, unfortunately, as I noted just as the Dallas reboot was about to air on TNT, the liberal-left that now dominates the entertainment biz entirely even took over Dallas, by turning it into a silly environmentalism show (in which J.R.’s evil son wants to engage in fracking–which is “BAD! VERY BAD!”).

The original Dallas was a great lesson in capitalism and achievement. Americans watched it and wanted to live like the Ewings. They wanted to do better for themselves and become American titans of industry to afford the trappings of that kind of life. Now, Americans aspire to the trappings of “Teen Mom,” “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” “Real Housewives of Your Neck of the Woods,” and other crap. To get there, you need not build a real business. Instead, get pregnant at 16, do a porno tape with a rap star and release it to the public, or sleep with and then divorce someone rich and/or famous. Not exactly the same as building an oil business and drilling for the stuff that makes our cars run and our economy sing. Or Americans aspire to ObamaPhonedom. Again, not producing, just taking. And that’s why we now have Obama, instead of those “big, bad, evil years of Reagan excess,” which were pretty good . . . and, actually, stellar compared to where we are now.

Larry Hagman had plenty of missteps, too. He admitted he’d abused alcohol (and because of it needed and got a liver transplant) and was a big-time smoker (he later abstained entirely from both), which might have contributed to the throat cancer from which he died. And, although the major characters he played would probably vote Republican, Hagman was, like many in Hollywood, extremely liberal. Hagman was a member of the Peace and Freedom Party–which, this year, had wackos Roseanne Barr and Cindy Sheehan as its Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates on the ballot–for five decades. Plus he was a campaign donor to Al Franken, the Democrats, and PAC for a Change. He also donated mucho bucks to Barbara Boxer, John Kerry for President, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Hagman starred in nutjob Oliver Stone’s fairy tale, “Nixon.” He was also big into the global warming baloney and the “green” lifestyle (his solar-powered home was on Ed Begley, Jr.’s nutty green show). We also shouldn’t forget his anti-war pronouncements in 2004, denouncing George W. Bush as a proponent of “fascism” for going to war in Iraq. Although that war was, in fact, a huge mistake and a giant gift–with the price of thousands of American lives–to Iran, his anti-war statements weren’t made with that in mind.

On the other hand, I also remember his service to America in a time of war and his contributions to two major shows that America loved to watch . . . for the right reasons.

Larry Hagman, Rest In Peace.

“The original Dallas was a great lesson in capitalism and achievement. Americans watched it and wanted to live like the Ewings.” I would have to disagree in part. The show also showed the achieving capitalist as a heartless conniver and back stabber who got what he deserved when he was shot. However, I think DS got it right that viewers admired the achievements of capitalism.

As far as I can recall, there has never been a positive mass media, or even alternative media, on the value of capitalism. I just came across this positive review of a show on the History Chanel http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/nov/22/they-built-this/#ixzz2DF14KSFf

and Burt Folsom’s book The Myth of the Robber Barons. If you don’t have time to read, as I have not, the notes are extensive and give a totally different perspective than the Marxist Josephson’s iconic The Robber Barons, which is the image that dominates our cultures view of capitalism http://www.amazon.com/Myth-Robber-Barons-Business-America/dp/0963020315/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1353855492&sr=1-3&keywords=burt+folsom

    The list of “anti-capitalist” movies and TV shows is a lot shorter than it seems. Most crooked businessmen are depicted as colluding with government crooks. In other words, from a free-market standpoint, it’s really corporatism, not capitalism, that’s on trial.

    What’s more, a plot revolving around money has to have lots of it in order to be convincing. Major businessmen typically have a lot more money than anyone else. People aren’t going to watch a TV program showing thousands of dollars at stake; they’re going to watch when millions are at stake.

    What draws audiences to such productions, moreover, is not “the message”; it’s the sheer drama. People really do fight to the death over money. Kind of like real life…you think?

    Seek on November 26, 2012 at 1:56 pm

I don’t think he should get a pass on his liberal-progressiveness because of his past service. People like that (Oliver Stone and John Kerry come to mind as examples)leverage their veteran status to later do damage to America and that’s unforgivable.

DSR: I agree. Definitely not giving him a pass, which is why I pointed these things out. DS

DS_ROCKS! on November 25, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Let us not forget that Jimmy “I’ll never lie to you” Carter was in the Navy. Serving the country doesn’t mean you’re smart or are pro-America. Carter has been an embarrassment for so long, both as president and his after-president life.

    JeffT on November 25, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    DS_ROCKS,

    I would also add that old curmudgeon McCain on that list. He’s been a damaging force in his own right.

    Ken b on November 25, 2012 at 3:02 pm

Let him rest. He is fortunate not to have lived longer, since what is coming will be quite bad.

Worry01 on November 25, 2012 at 11:18 am

    LOL. Worry, you succinctly said what I think often in my mind these days.

    Skunky on November 25, 2012 at 1:19 pm

I worked in the oil industry and I thought that Dallas was a clownish left wing drivel.
The evil cartel was not 5 independent Dallas oil man that may account for less than 1% of world oil production but OPEC the criminal Muslim lead monopoly that confiscated the property from US big oil companies than used monopoly power to increase prices and fund terrorism. These OPEC countries broke their agreement with big oil companies. Think what that means for any peace agreement with these monster.

madman on November 25, 2012 at 11:30 am

Jeez…He was really far-left! How disappointing. Hope he knew Al Franken(Stein) stole that election. I would have cared but maybe he wouldn’t have.

I like to always have my values re-affirmed as DS did so nicely in this column. I loved “I Dream Of Jeannie” & thought he was so handsome in that show. I don’t think I regularly watched “Dallas” but if I did I was prolly babysitting, LOL! I recall liking “Falcon Crest” way better!

I like how DS pointed about how the 80s REALLY were. I can’t remember that (unfortunately) because I believed the Liberal lies then and they DID try to paint Reagan as a monster & that things were bad. I want to highlight that so I can illustrate to people that the media can be quite powerful when constructing a false narrative. I can see the truth more clear in hindsight though (but it still makes me feel cheated).

And even in 2002 as a NEW Conservative the fact that I was behind the Iraq War shows how dangerous it is (even if one’s a Conservative) how you can be badly mistaken when you do not have sufficient facts and knowledge behind you opinions and beliefs. My lesson was very harshly learned.

Skunky on November 25, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Personally, I only watched a couple of episodes of “Dallas” but never quite caught on.

But I did watch “Dynasty” and “Dallas” spinoff “Knots Landing”, the former because of Heather Locklear (ROWR ROWR) and the latter for Donna Mills and her mystifying eyes.

In hindsight, such shows were somewhat covertly anti-capitalistic because the most ambitious characters (ie JR) were absolute douchebags. But they were pure escapism: rich people having regular people problems with a side order of melodramatic mayhem. And the women to die for.

The Reverend Jacques on November 25, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Rev,

    I agree with you on the hotness of Heather Locklear. Remember that show “TJ Hooker” with William Shatner. Locklear was the best looking cop on TV back then and was the main reason why I watched the show.

    Ken b on November 25, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    Rev, I also liked “Knots Landing”. And Donna Mills’ makeup was totally fascinating. Back then we did apply it with a shovel but I used to study her eye make-up because it was phenomenal and over-the-top…in a good way. Bet you drag queens LOVED her!

    Skunky on November 25, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Good article as usual Ms. Schlussel, I to was a little surprised to hear that Mr. Hagman died two days ago, but I also notice his political thinking, where it was anything but right wing, his views where very left wing as you explained DS, I also remember during Bush’s days as president, Hagman denounced the Iraq War (and yes til a point we shouldn’t have invaded Iraq, Saddam Hussein didn’t pose no type of threat to us and Iraq didn’t attack us on 9/11/01, however, MANY Democrats voted for the Iraq war about 10 years ago), etc. And I didn’t know he was apart of a nutty far-left party that wasn’t taken serioulsy (and they shouldn’t, there too the far-left and very kooky) that had Cindy Sheehan/Cindy Shameham and Roseanne Barr, I liked his acting, and if there was a sitcom named “I Dream of Jeanie”, I think it wouldn’t last a week, due the silly PC crap that’s ruining and messing up our country nowadays. Dallas did looked pretty conservative, I remember watching it as a child in the 1980s, about each friday evenings back then, I along with my family would tune into the television to watch that show.

Barbara Eden was way hotter than Elizabeth Montgomery. And I’ll take my magic served in silk pajamas any day.

Richard on November 25, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Never watched anything but Jeannie in reruns when I was young. In truth, I thought it was good, in a boring kinda way.

skzion on November 25, 2012 at 1:53 pm

So sad that another TV actor from my childhood has passed. I liked Larry Hagman as the hapless Major Nelson on reruns of “I Dream of Jeannie” with Barbara Eden(whoa mamma!)and his evil character JR Ewing in “Dallas”. The latter show’s remake is just another foray of Hollyweird not understanding what made shows from the 80s fun to watch. Remember the “Knight Rider” remake? Yeah me neither. You’re right also Debbie that shows like “I Dream of Jeannie and something like “All In The Family” couldn’t be made today. Could you imagine someone like Archie Bunker on TV? The liberal fembots and racist hatemongers would get their brown shirts in a knot. Back to Hagman. It was just typical that he like many other in Hollyweird was a solar powered, green energy, globull warming liberal. He also gave money to two of the biggest douchebags in the senate John(Lurch)Kerry and Barbara(Endora)Boxer. Rest in peace anyway Larry even though you turned out to be another war veteran liberal weenie.

Ken b on November 25, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Um, has Schlussel even SEEN “Nixon” before? It was an outstanding movie. It towers over Stone’s other work, except maybe the first “Wall Street.” Unfortunately a few select idiots thought that nominating Gordon Gekko for president was the key to victory. Taste the victory.

“He was also big into the global warming baloney.”

I’m always amused when people deny the existence of climate change.

Doesn’t research into geological history indicate multiple ice ages considerably colder than present day? Are we currently living in an ice age now? Flipping elementary school children can answer those questions and probably come to a more informed conclusion.

While there isn’t consensus if what we’re observing now has an anthropogenic component, climate change certainly has occurred and quite likely is taking place now.

Robert on November 25, 2012 at 3:44 pm

@Robert, 

Too bad we can’t SEND you to your beloved ice age. I’m sure you’d like it there. 

Anyone who actually thinks that humans could ever have an appreciable long-term effect on the world’s temperature / like some kind of cosmic thermostat, LOL – is an effin’ megalomaniac.

Think about the VOLUME of the atmosphere, and your supposed “effect” on it. You might as well tell people that if they p*ss in the ocean, they’ll kill all the fish.

EssEm on November 25, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Sure, EssEm, I’ll think about the VOLUME of nearly 14000 peer reviewed studies and articles about the phenomenon that appear in Web of Science from 1991-this month, and the piss-in-an-ocean’s worth 24 of them that deny that the phenomenon is being observed currently.

      Robert on November 26, 2012 at 2:04 am

      Hey Robert, I’m curious. How exactly did those 14,000 peer-reviewed studies and articles (probably baloney, but I’m not going to waste my time debunking the claim) manage to sustain their conclusions given that the mathematics for studying a dynamical system like weather, even in the short run, have barely begun to be developed? How were the very serious inadequacies in historical data addressed? Given the first two questions, how exactly can man’s impact on such processes possibly have been identified?

      I don’t know how many phonies claim to have squared the circle or to have developed a perpetual motion machine, but I do know that a slew of such claims are mailed to math and physics departments every year.

      The idea that a few measurements of dubious validity, suggesting, or not suggesting, a trend counts as “science” is baloney. Even suggesting a simple linear functional form for temperature change is baloney. Everything we know about weather weights against such claims.

      To take this stuff seriously enough to impose serious economic costs on citizens is lunacy. You lack of scientific literacy means you can be bamboozled into being a participant in such lunacy.

      skzion on November 26, 2012 at 2:50 pm

      @Robert,

      I love how the climate scammers have never once in history cited any actual evidence to support their fraudulent claims. To them, the “evidence” is the fact that some high priest from the scientific community SAID SO.

      This is 2012, dingleberry. Americans want PROOF, not flying men of magic and miracles. If you want me to mortgage my life to buy a handful of magic beans from Al Gore, you sure as hell better show your work.

      EssEm on November 27, 2012 at 12:34 am

I didn’t watch “Dallas”–either the old or new version, but I did used to watch “I Dream of Jeannie” in reruns when I was a kid and it was a great show. I didn’t know about Larry Hagman either having served in the Korean war or his politics until I read this post. I’m with Debbie in saying that his positives outweighs his negatives and that therefore …

Larry Hagman–Rest In Peace.

JE: I’m not sure the positives outweigh the negatives. I just put them all out there. I liked him as an actor. As a person and as an American, I’m not so sure. DS

JeffE on November 25, 2012 at 8:05 pm

I moved to Dallas in 1980 when I was hired as a special agent for the State Department Office of Security, now the Diplomatic Security Service. I traveled to 14 countries in 3 years on different assignments. I will never forget that when cab drivers or other locals found out I lived in Dallas, they always spoke about JR and the TV show and the Dallas Cowboys. Time passes quickly and change comes with it. Unfortunately most of the changes have not been for the best due to the cancer of political correctness, which destroys truth and the American way.

He was always great in whatever he appeared in. I thought he was especially good in the otherwise mediocre movie “Stardust” (1974) in which he played a sleazy music business executive, obviously patterned after Allen Klein.

Some interesting trivia: Barbara Eden really wasn’t expecting to get the part of Jeannie. She was competing with a lot of Hollywood’s leading ladies of the time for it, and thought for certain that it would go to Marlo Thomas. On paper, it certainly seemed to make more sense that a genie would be played by a dark haired Lebanese woman than a blonde Jew. Apparently Eden managed to land the role because, according to most show business insiders, she had “the better rack.”

Great article, Debbie, excellent observations about where we are as a nation right now.

@Gay Obama,

Do you think your family is proud of the choices you’ve made in life? I seriously doubt it.

And LOL at your “restraining order.” Is this the fearsome idea you’ve been pitching to Schlussel? I thought it’d be something semisane, like requiring registration before posting comments. Clearly your hysteria is getting the better of you.

A restraining order for arguing with someone in an online forum. Gay Obama, you are a disgrace to the Princeton Law School. You know nothing!!

    No, Muslim Monkey. The restraining order applies to you in other areas of your life.

Ajax on November 26, 2012 at 10:37 am

Debbie, the theme of good and evil is rampant in 50s and some 60s TV shows. This is an excellent point in your post.

Many in the “media” at that time were well aware of the Nazi evil, the Holocaust and some may have been survivors of the Death Camps.

Moreover, some shows were about the positive use of firearms (The Rifleman, Bonanza, WW West, etc) versus the nobody can have a gun attitude in Chicago, New York and LA (oh did not they vote 200% for Obama?) except criminals, that pervades in the media today.

When the edict comes down from our lord and master Obama to confiscate the guns, then secession will be really on the table.

If you think I am dwelling on the 2nd Amendment you’re right.

panhandle on November 26, 2012 at 4:26 pm

To get back to the subject at hand, Larry Hagman was also the son of the late Broadway musical star Mary Martin (of such now-famous productions as South Pacific, Peter Pan [which some prefer to the Disney version], and The Sound of Music).

Since Oliver Stone was mentioned, he’s also doing a propaganda “documentary” of Joseph Stalin’s reign (of terror) in Soviet Russia that is set to air on Showtime. Caveat emptor.

ConcernedPatriot on November 26, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Could it be that by being confused with the character Larry Hagman played, he overcompensated by running to the left?

Dutch Renitent on November 26, 2012 at 6:48 pm

@Robert. You are terribly misinformed on the man made global warming hoax crap. You are swallowing media tripe and smiling about it. There are virtually no scientists that believe that nonsense unless they will directly benefit from it’s contrivance or an offshoot thereof. In that lame left-wing article you posted:

“Scientists do not disagree about human-caused global warming. It is the ruling paradigm of climate science, in the same way that plate tectonics is the ruling paradigm of geology. We know that continents move. We know that the earth is warming and that human emissions of greenhouse gases are the primary cause. These are known facts about which virtually all publishing scientists agree.”

Here we go… “Science” is determined by the majority of opinions and not real “facts.” What bull$hit!!

The amount of air-born carbon in the atmosphere is the same as it was 50 years ago and 150 years ago. But OBSERVATIONS (real science) do not correlate with the “models” that are used for alleged predictions. http://www.worldclimatereport.com/index.php/2012/08/02/earths-carbon-sink-still-strong-and-growing/

There are many, many scientists who do not buy into the hoax of man made global warming. More than 31,000 scientists (including over 9,000 w/PhD’s) who have publicly declared such:
http://www.petitionproject.org/

The lies and deceit have been exposed MANY times. But many don’t care. That’s because they are all focused on government money and social control…

Don’t give me the crap about “published scientists…” Any scientist that gets published has to follow the social agenda of academia or else he is excluded. Science has turned into a social engineering propaganda machine consisting of left-wing opinion instead of a tool to increase knowledge, learning, and modern life in general.

Get a life.

PDMac60 on November 26, 2012 at 7:56 pm

@ PDMac60, EssEm, skzion, et. al…

“Think about the VOLUME of the atmosphere, and your supposed ‘effect’ on it.”

“You lack of scientific literacy means you can be bamboozled into being a participant in such lunacy.”

“You are terribly misinformed on the man made global warming hoax crap.”

S’il vous plait mesdames et messieurs, work on your reading comprehension. REALLY. At no point do I proclaim a belief that global warming is manmade. It’d be like me preaching Darwinian evolution as a satisfactory means of explaining the origins of life- totally bonkers!

It gives me a sad that my simple ice age comment flew over the heads of such titans of erudition, the obvious point being quite the opposite of what you ALL assumed, so I’ll break it down rather simply.

1. The ice ages, as they are colloquially called, were many many many moons ago.
2. It got warmer some time later. Then colder again. Then warmer. Lather, rinse, repeat.
3. Human industrial activity came many many moons later. Pretty recently, comparatively speaking.
4. Ergo…wait for it…the waxing and waning of ice sheets (I’ll call that global warming, thank you) has happened for millions of years without a single carbon emission from a Hummer to blame for it!!!

Robert on November 27, 2012 at 4:29 am

    In other words, Row-Bear, your entire original post was utterly pointless, as nobody denies that climate is cyclical.

“He was always great in whatever he appeared in.”

Clerly you’ve not seen Son of the Blob (1972) which Hagman appeared in and, I believe, directed. This movie will remove any doubts about stories of Hagman’s years of drug use.

DL on November 29, 2012 at 7:46 am

    I haven’t seen Son of Blob – but I have heard of it, it was nominated for the worst film sequel in the Medved brothers’ “Son of Golden Turkey Awards” book. Sidebar: During the original Dallas‘ run, to cash in on Hagman’s fame, especially after the “Who Shot J.R.?” hubbub, the film was reissued with the tagline “The Film That J.R. Shot!” (Ha-ha, very funny.)

    As for Ms. Eden’s Jeannie: It is because of her character’s submissive nature that there are those viewers that prefer Bewitched‘s Elizabeth Montgomery. But I digress . . .

But you just could resist when I pointed you out, because not only are you a sociopath, you are compulsive. If you only stuck to the point, nobody would want to ban you. But you can’t do that.

Skzion, no matter what he calls himself his boredom shines thru’. I noticed him right away and ignored and went on to well-written posts. My policy stands and shall continue.

His malignant narcissism shows in that he uses similar handles he *thinks* are clever (but are not, of course) and his pathetic but narcissistic ways also shine brightly. He has been told by the owner of this blog (who he had a Rumplestiltskin-esque temper tantrum against & insulted her after she said so) he is not welcome BUT STILL insists on coming here where no one likes or appreciates him.

He is hoist on his own petard by being so pathetic & wearing his mental illness on his sleeve. He is not foolin’ me. EVER.

Yeah, Skunky, it was pretty obvious. He thought that if he didn’t start out with his shit against us he could sneak back.

Even when the fellow happens to be right (e.g. on global warming), he can’t properly argue his case.

I guess I now understand why there are such things as restraining orders.

Anyway, I hope your Thanksgiving was fun. I visited the family. It was time well spent, even if I wouldn’t want to prolong it. :)

Skzion, the fact that he likes to come here after his disgusting behaviour says it all. He’s a nutter. He damages himself with each boring and dopey post. He’s dumb & disturbed.

The freak has NEVER made sense. Bob Dole, Young Goodman Brown, how he knows NOTHING on Islam (& he defended it sometimes before the election) his failure 2 understand your take on Flip Floppney and my position on him months before the election. He’s supposedly a “conservative” but attacks other conservatives (and with incongruent reasoning…). He’s starkers.

I had a great Thanksgiving holiday! Because I make sure to steer clear from nutters like the sick, narcissistic, monkey caca eater who trolls here.
