R.I.P. Bart Fargo

Some sad news in the MST3K extended universe: actor Gordon Scott has passed away, due to complications from heart surgery. MSTies know Gordon as the infamous superspy Bart Fargo, from episode 620, Danger!! Death Ray. Scott first made a name for himself as Tarzan in six films, starting in the ’50s. After that, he starred in a number of “sword and sandal” epics, often as characters that MSTies will be familiar with – Hercules and Maciste (“My Cheesesteak”).

Sympathies go out to his loved ones. Death Ray is available here. Watch it in his memory, and just try saying “Bart Fargo” five times fast.
