Emmy Award-winning actor Harry Morgan, who played the crusty yet sympathetic Col. Sherman T. Potter in the sitcom "MASH" and the hard-nosed LAPD Officer Bill Gannon in the television drama "Dragnet," died Wednesday. He was 96. Morgan died at his home in Brentwood after a bout with pneumonia, his daughter-in-law, Beth Morgan, told the Associated Press. Morgan's eight - year run on "MASH," the pinnacle of his seven-decade acting career, began when he was 60 and had already appeared on the Broadway stage, in dozens of television shows and more than 50 films.

I was watching a "MASH" repeat and was so touched by a lovely performance by Harry Morgan as Col. Potter. He's a wonderful actor, and I wanted him to know he's still inspiring and appreciated (and by someone more than half his age). Diane Wayne, Los Angeles

**** "The Ox-Bow Incident." Key. $19.98. Walter Van Tilburg Clark's classic study of mob violence and the tortures of conscience is translated here as a grim, gray, stylized Western morality play--with Henry Fonda and Harry Morgan as cowpokes caught up in a lynch mob, a mixed band driven by its leaders to extract blood vengeance from three possibly innocent strangers (Dana Andrews, Anthony Quinn and Francis Ford).
