Richard Dawson’s Dead–Just Like He Predicted in 1967! [VIDEO]


COED readers probably best know the late Richard Dawson as Damon Killian. He played the homicidal game-host in the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger actioner The Running Man. Dawson had a lot of fun goofing on his real-life role as host of the long-running game show Family Feud–where he was famous for kissing every woman who was ever on the show. Dawson was also part of the London scene of the Swinging ’60s, and was married to notorious sex symbol Diana Dors. Few people know about Richard Dawson’s recording career, though. He managed one psychedelic classic with 1967’s “Apples & Oranges”–and here it is below, sounding lovely right up to its chilling end. We’ve also added the trailer for The Running Man. Damn, Dawson almost got Schwarzenegger. That’s a screen legacy.
