THE HAT SQUAD: THE EAGLE HAS FLOWN

Sometimes an actor becomes indelible in one's memory for a lifetime body of work in Toobworld. And for others all it takes is one role, and only sixty seconds worth of it at that.

Jack Eagle has passed away. That in itself probably doesn't get your brain synapses firing up with recognition. But once I add that he played Brother Dominic, the second most famous monk in all of Toobworld (after Brother 'Cadfael'), perhaps that should make you remember him.

Still need help? Well, here's a visual aid.....
Jack Eagle was 71 when he passed away on the tenth of January, five days shy of his 72nd birthday. His first Xerox ad as Brother Dominic made its debut during the 1977 Super Bowl. Next Sunday's game would have marked the 31st anniversary of its first broadcast.

Rest in peace, Brother.....

That is sad. I always loved the Brother Dominic Xerox advert.
