RIP Lukas Ammann

Swiss actor Lukas Ammann, who reached cult status with his role as a detective "Graf Yoster", is dead. The 104-year-old Ammann died in his Munich apartment on May 4th, his close confidant Annemarie von Kienlin told the German press agency. The series "Graf Yoster Gives Itself the Honor" with Ammann in the title role was first broadcast 50 years ago. They ran from 1967 to 1976, were shot 76 episodes - the first 24 episodes still black and white, then in color. "The series was a street sweep," Ammann recalled later. He enthused the audience. And was one of the first crime series on German television. Ammann appeared in one Euro-western "Day of Anger" (1967) as Judge Cutcher/Cutchell.
