Facebook reminds me that four years ago yesterday, actor Harry Morgan died. I can't remember if I used this anecdote in the obit I wrote for NBC, but I had to share it here:
Morgan worked with famously serious Jack Webb on "Dragnet."
One day at 9 am, Harry Morgan told Jack Webb a joke.
They then filmed all day and at 5 p.m., Morgan told another joke, and Jack exploded, "DAMMIT HARRY, QUIT GOOFING AROUND!"
