In Memoriam Robert Culp

Robert Culp played the secret-agent Kelly Robinson in "I Spy" in the 1960s. His co-star was Bill Cosby as Alexander Scott.

A quote from Wikipedia:  "The two actors quickly developed a close friendship that mirrored their on-screen characters". I read all I Spy stories I could find - there are so few of them.

Robert Culp died yesterday, 79 years old.

Re: *SIGH*
You wrote I Spy fics!!! I must read them all - maybe even the gen *g*. It is surely 20 years ago I saw some episodes on TV, a part of it german, and some of them original. I didn't see much of them, but I never forgot it. There must be a scene somewhere with Kelly putting his head on Scottys shoulder, while they are sitting with a driver very cramped in a drivers cab. And Scotty says "How romantic" :). I never forgot this scene...

Re: *SIGH*
Hey, thanks! I'd love to know what you think of them when you have a moment, of course. I've never believed in the fandom being divided between gen and slash - it's all about the love, and whether you view their love as platonic or romantic, the sheer power of that love they have on screen for one another has hardly ever been equalled. I remember in 'Bet me a Dollar' when Kelly says to Scotty, "I want to disappear for a week where no-one can find me. Not even you." I loved that "Not even you" - like normally, even if Kelly disappeared from the whole world, he would still tell Scotty where to find him. And when Kelly disappears in 'Vendetta' Scotty says - are you ready for this? - he says, "My man is missing." And me? *THUD* That was the sound of me fainting.

PS. Your icon is wonderful!!! Are you on the I Spy mailing list, TrueTrue? The reason I ask is that I have some "Room with a Rack" screencaps in the "Photos" section. Let me know if you want to join and I'll send you a link, ok?

Re: *SIGH*
That was funny - it took a while to read your story, and when I posted my comment, I saw your comment here *g*.
I like pre-slash too :-).
"My man" - I was smiling when I heard this expression first. I don't know the exact english meaning, but when a german woman says it, it has the same meaning as "my husband".

Do you mean:

I looked around for stories - and I must confess, I skipped the gens...
