Mr. Carol’s yarzheit (Yaakov Tzvi ben Yitzchok) is 28 Tishrei. He appears in a Dragnet episode in an excellent example of why dan l’kaf zechus is so important.
Any mitzvah or tzedaka l’ilul nishmaso would be appreciated.
If you have photos or stories of Mr. Carol that you would like to add to this post, please contact Rav Summers or Aaron Gross.
Approximately 6:50-11:00 in the episode is where Mr. Carol appears.
Mr. Carol also appears running a laundry as an ex-con in an episode of Dragnet called “The Big Betty”, appearing approximately 5 minutes in:
As a Hotel Clerk at 15:10 in the episode “Logan’s Treasure” of Bonanza:
As a pilot at the beginning of “The General’s Boots” in the Schlitz Playouse With Basil Rathbone:
As “Comrade Bill” in I Led 3 Lives: Parcels for Poland. About 3 minutes into the show. Video no longer embedable: view here: https://archive.org/details/ILed3Lives-ParcelsForPoland1953
Don’t blink, but Mr. Carol appears briefly as a security guard named “Scotty” in this made-for-TV horror movie. Skip to 1:24:40. The rest of the movie isn’t much worth watching.
