R.I.P. in 2009: the 50s

Among those we lost in 2009 who came to boomer fame in the 50s: TV's Soupy Sales, Betsy Blair in her most famous performance in the Paddy Chayefsky Best Picture of 1955, Marty; Richard Todd, Disney's Robin Hood; TV's Gale Storm ("My Little Margie"); actor Gene Barry (War of the Worlds, TV's Bat Masterson); director Budd Shulberg and actor Karl Malden, from the classic On the Waterfront; guitar innovator Les Paul (that's one of his guitars); early 50s TV comic actor Arnold Stang.
