Edd Byrnes


Edd Byrnes became a teen idol from his role as Kookie on the hip detective series “77 Sunset Strip.” Kookie was the cool young parking lot attendant at the club next to the detective agency run by two smooth PI’s played by Roger Smith and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. Byrnes character was a breakout star, snapping his fingers and combing his ducktail on the popular series that ran on ABC in the late 1950s to early 1960s.

Not sure what to say?

A real hero to all of us "cool cats".

Forget Me Not (flowers)

Deepest sympathies of the loss of one of the original most known for his flash on camera, Young actor. It will be quite a loss when more of those from 1950s, 1960s are no longer with us. JMBraczyk (late) USMC stationed in California 1965-1969. mcbraczyk michigan

Forget us not actors of the past

Deepest Sympathies for the loss of the original true actors with onset of Black and white shows to the color. The Series and the shows were not even comparable to those the show up on the screen movies and tv. Being from the 1950's myself January 26 1950 I am glad for Att U-verse or those that air them.

May his Fame shine with all other Stars in Heaven.He was so much Fun to watch. San Antonio,Texas MVG
