Another Five-O family loss. She guested on the show twice - as Marla Acuna, Elpidio's wife, in "Savage Sunday" and as Maggie Corman in "The One With the Gun", both in the second season.

She also played James Caan's (Sonny Corleone) wife in THE GODFATHER.

Someone posted on the Julie Gregg IMDB page about the similarities between her and Linda Marsh (Sweet Terror, Force of Waves, Image of Fear) which is interesting as I had mixed-up the two of them when I saw this post about Gregg's death.

Isn't that interesting? I too always thought they looked kinda similar to each other. And they both pretty much guest-starred back to back in "Savage Sunday" and "Sweet Terror". Both babely brunettes!

She sure was a looker! But honestly this is getting depressing, I feel like a grand dad starting his day by seeing who's in the obituary pages!

I just realized that recently I did a review of a Kojak episode in which Julie Gregg appeared, where she gave an outstanding performance:

Before I saw her on FIve-O, I only knew Julie Gregg for her "Batman" guest shot as the Penguin's henchmoll Finella in the final episode of Season 1, where she affected a dippy Marilyn Monroe like persona (with short blonde wig). "Savage Sunday" was a revelation in that it made me realize what a very versatile and talented actress she is. She was also a talented singer who won a Tony nomination for the 1968 musical "The Happy Time" with Robert Goulet and you can see and hear her sing in the 1966 "Batman" feature movie where she has an uncredited part as a French nightclub singer.

I have also seen the "Kojak" episode you mentioned, and it is a spellbinding performance. Ironically that episode also features another former Batman henchmoll, Francine York who just passed away herself.

I remember Julie Gregg in her few Classic HFO episodes. She was incredibly beautiful. Her appearance as elpidio's wife in Savage Sunday was an outstanding performance. The revolutionary group was determined to capture the weapons from the Hawaii armory and funnel them back home to defeat the power in charge. McG had respect for elpidio more than most criminals. He easily could have had the team shoot elpidio in the truck. I'm going to miss Julie Gregg as she was a beautiful and talented actress.
