David Cassidy, Heartthrob
And ‘Partridge Family’ Star, Is Dead at 67

        David Cassidy, the actor and teen heartthrob best known for his role as the musician with the green eyes and the feathered haircut on the 1970s television sitcom “The Partridge Family,” died on Tuesday at a hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He was 67.

One of the first movies I remember seeing

was "Oklahoma" when I was 6. I was frightened out of my mind by the surrealistic dancing scene in it. Stairs to nowhere!

As far as David is concerned, I was on my first tour of duty in Germany when the "Partridge Family" first came out, and when I came back it was already 1972. I watched it a couple of times out of curiosity but the music wasn't what I was into at the time. I always feel old and vulnerable when people younger than me don't make it. David would have been 10 or 11 in this picture; he was always a small guy.
