The actor launched his career in the 1950s when James Cagney spotted him and recommended him for films.He survived two serious illnesses to have a second career after “77 Sunset Strip” as manager of his second wife, entertainer Ann-Margret."When I first heard about it I thought there was no way," says Matthew a Cape Coral High School student.He's talking about the fact that more than a dozen football players at the school had sex with a 15-year old girl during a study hall on campus after school.She broke her sex kitten stereotype in dramatic fashion in 1971 when she appeared in Mike Nichols’ “Carnal Knowledge” as the abused mistress of Jack Nicholson. 29, 2011 file photo, actor Sam Shepard poses for a portrait in New York. 15, 2013 file photo, June Foray arrives at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards at the then Nokia Theatre L.

Jack Gilardi, who is the agent of Smith’s widow, actress Ann-Margret, said the actor died Sunday morning at a Los Angeles hospital after battling a terminal illness.Smith had battled the nerve disease myasthenia gravis for many years.
That's why it's hard for many to believe that some of the football players at South Fort Myers high school made national headlines for what they did off the field in a campus bathroom in May.But is this type of behavior only happening at one school? First, we asked the Lee County School District for any reports of sexual activity during the past school year.The school district's response, in part, "We are unable to provide information concerning any disciplinary actions taken against students."So, we went to the Lee County Sheriff's Office and requested any calls deputies responded to involving sex at school.He was diagnosed two days later with a blood clot on the brain.In a March 1960 story on the incident, Look magazine blamed medical mistakes for the delay in diagnosis and quoted a doctor as saying, “This boy came too close to being buried — needlessly.”He rejoined “77 Sunset Strip” after recovering and continued in his role as Jeff Spencer until 1963 when the entire cast except Zimbalist was dropped in an attempt to revitalize it. Meanwhile, Smith got the title role in the NBC series based on “Mister Roberts,” based on the 1955 comedy-drama about Navy life. When he first gained fame, he had been married to a glamorous Australian actress, Victoria Shaw, with whom he had three children. Meanwhile he was dating Ann-Margret, the dynamic singer, dancer and actress of “Bye Bye Birdie,” “Viva Las Vegas” and other films. Smith later quit to manage her career.“Now in Roger I’ve found all the men I need rolled into one — a father, a friend, a lover, a manager, a businessman,” she told writer Rex Reed in 1972. I couldn’t exist without a strong man.”For decades Smith guided Ann-Margret’s career with great care. Foray's niece, Robin Thaler, said Thursday, July 27, 2017, that Foray died in a Los Angeles hospital of cardiac arrest.
