Larry Hagman reunites with Mary Crosby in Hollywood

By Greg Hernandez Who knew J.R. Ewing could be so forgiving?

Of course I’m really talking about actor Larry Hagman who last night at The Magic Castle in Hollywood reunited with Mary Crosby, the actress whose character shot dastardly J.R. Ewingon Dallas back in 1980 in TVs first great cliffhanger.

Photographer Brian Putnam snapped the two together last night after a cabaret performance by Mary’s mother, Kathryn Crosby.

Mary’s father, of course, was Bing Crosby and Kathryn’s show was a tribute to the late, great crooner.

The Who Shot J.R. episode of Dallas was titled A House Divided and was broadcast on March 21, 1980. Viewers had to wait all summer, and most of the autumn because of a Hollywood actors’ strike (and Hagman’s own holdout), to learn whether J.R. would survive, and which of his many enemies was responsible.
