Cinematographer Haskell “Buzz” Boggs died May 30 from heart disease at St. Joseph/Providence Medical Center in Burbank, Calif. He was 94.
Best known for his work with actor-producer Michael Landon on TV skeins “Little House on the Prairie” and “Highway to Heaven” as well as earlier work on Western skein “Bonanza,” he also shot five films for Jerry Lewis between 1957 and 1960: “The Delicate Delinquent,” “The Geisha Boy,” “Don’t Give up the Ship,” “Ciderfella” and “The Bellboy.”
Prior to his work with Lewis, he was a camera operator on Bob Hope’s “Sorrowful Jones” and the Clarke Gable/Dorris Day starrer “Teacher’s Pet” and was cinematographer for James Cagney’s sole directorial effort, “Shortcut to Hell.”
He is survived by a daughter.
