Morning Men Classics: Starsky & Hutch!

Sad news today: Starsky & Hutch star David Soul has died at the age of 80.

There was not, in my opinion, a more dreamy cop team in the 70s than Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul.

I had a bigger crush on Paul with that curly black hair, beautiful blue eyes, hairy chest and tight jeans! But then David was the one with the number one hit record Don’t Give Up On Us Baby which was a huge smash.

From 1975-79, they played Det. Dave Starsky and Det. Ken “Hutch” Hutchinson, two streetwise cops who busted criminals in their red-and-white Ford Torino with the help of police snitch called Huggy Bear.

Paul once said in an interview: “I think between David’s and my chemistry and the notion of a buddy show, which I think, if I’m not mistaken, was the first of its kind on television…we had “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” as a feature, but we hadn’t seen that kind of pairing,… male bonding,.. whatever you want to call it in television. So this was kind of a first.”

These days, Paul mostly writes and directs and continues his activism in the fight against Pediatric AIDS after losing his wife Elizabeth and their daughter to the disease. David mostly did theater and shows for BBC television.
