One number sums up the staggering career of Hollywood character Herb Vigran: 350. That's the mark of film and TV roles that the Fort Wayne, Indiana native managed to surpass during his ridiculously prolific, Golden Age propelled run. It started with hundreds of radio shows alongside the likes of Jack Benny and Bob Hope, before Vigran's balding dome and bushy eyebrows helped him corner the market for onscreen cops, repairmen, jurors, bartenders, judges and more. Vigran is most definitely one of thos actors that the average TV and film fan could never name, and yet also immediately recongizes from appearances on everything from "I Love Lucy" and "Dragnet" to "Remington Steele" and "Dallas." Mr. Everyman finally passed away in 1986 from cancer, but his legacy lives on. One of the strangest things about Vigran's career is his last credit. Coming a few months after his death, it was that of an agent in the 1987 comedy send-up "Amazon Women on the Moon."
