James Leo Herlihy (SPOILERS)

Had no idea this was the guy who wrote 'Midnight Cowboy'! Also, had no idea he really DID kill himself (though not with a gun, like in 'Four Friends') with sleeping pills.

Don't be a luddy-duddy! Don't be a mooncalf! Don't be a jabbernowl!


I knew he wrote Midnight Cowboy ... but I didn't know until reading your post that he committed suicide. Too bad... he was a good writer and actor...
