The Monday Playlist: Dallas Lays J.R. to Rest and Other Final Acts

Skip Bolen

Break out the bourbon and branch. On Dallas, they've come to bury J.R. Ewing, not necessarily to praise "the most infuriating, charming scoundrel I think I've ever known," as his most famous and long-suffering ex-spouse, Sue Ellen, describes the iconic oilman. "It's enough to drive a girl to drink," she jokes. Though it may not be entirely a joke.

On set, the late actor's spirit is still very much alive. Each morning when he passes Hagman's trailer, Patrick Duffy, who plays Bobby Ewing, knocks on his friend's door.
