When Stars have a contract giving them a percentage of merchandise, images, etc,  they want and deserve what’s owed to them. It’s not fair everyone is making money off their name and image and not them.

According to CNN,  Tom Bosley Estate, Erin Moran, Don Most, Marion Ross and Anson Williams are named in the lawsuit against CBS. Ron Howard had nothing to say about the case, however, Henry Winkler (The Fonz) was paid.

CBS said the Stars of the hit show does not have a case for the sale of  worldwide merchandise.

Every week television from all over tuned in to watch the hit running show Soul Train;  it was not only a place to hear current music, see your favorite performer singing their latest hit and  great dancing,  it was  the fashion, make-up and hair show.  Fashion starts in New York and ends in Los Angeles; however,  Pat Davis styles started in Hollywood  and landed in New York.

Patricia Davis is best known as Pat Davis,  Madame Butterfly, The Butterfly and China Doll. The dancers were featured in the magazine “Right On.”

Davis was an eye catcher with her great dance moves, well styled hair and grace.  Pat was considered the prettiest dancer on the show.   My favorite Soul Train Dancers were Damita Jo Freeman whom I know but have lost contact,  and Pat Davis.   There was a Soul Train Reunion both Freeman and Davis  attended.
