Sad day on Gilligan's Island

It’s been a bad week for washed up female wrestlers, with the death of Mae Young. And now a bad week for washed up castaways… Gilligan’s Island star Russell Johnston is dead.. He was 89.  Unfortunately for his acting career, he was best known for his role as the Professor on the strange comedy from last century.  While I was certainty not old enough to have grown up watching the program when they were new, I did live on reruns throughout my childhood.. The Professor got me through many sick days home from school back in the day. I hope he rests in some peace..  In somewhat related news, PARADE magazine ran a story about Dawn Wells, and how her shorts on Gillian’s Island made history. I can only picture Russell Johnson ogling at her on the set of the island.. Something tells me the wild days of filming were fun and lively. What happened on the island probably stayed on the island.
