Wasn't he the guy who did "M is for Murder" and all those kinds of titles. Apparently not...
Having won a Tony, an Oscar and an Emmy (for "I Dream of Jeannie"), Sheldon declared that his final medium was the best.
"I love writing books," he commented. "Movies are a collaborative medium, and everyone is second-guessing you. When you do a novel you're on your own. It's a freedom that doesn't exist in any other medium."
Its been a tough year, losing Heath-Stubbs and now Sheldon.
They will be missed.
