Ozzie Nel­son por­trayed the clean-cut, all-Amer­i­can dad in The Ad­ven­tures of Ozzie and Har­riet on TV from 1952 through 1966. Af­ter Nel­son’s death at age 69 in 1975, the own­ers of his for­mer home in the Hol­ly­wood Hills re­ported hear­ing foot­steps and see­ing a ghost wear­ing a cardi­gan sweater. Once, a fe­male vis­i­tor sleep­ing alone up­stairs felt some­one crawl into bed with her and be­gin kiss­ing her. Re­al­iz­ing it wasn’t her hus­band, then rush­ing to turn on the light, she was re­lieved—and shocked—to dis­cover there was no one there. The “ad­ven­tures” of Ozzie, in­deed!
