Aaron Spelling is Notable.


Born in Dallas in 1923 to Jewish immigrants, Aaron Spelling's childhood began with psychosomatic bilater leg paralysis due to trauma from bullying. He remained confined to bed for a year, then making a full recovery.

Spelling served in the United States Air Force during World War II. He was saved from a plane crash by coming down with the flu. The flight he was pulled off of by the flight surgeon crashed, leaving no survivors.

Spelling was married twice, first to actress Carolyn Jones from 1953 through 1964 and to Carole "Candy" Marer from 1968 until his death in 2006.

Spelling had a productive career in film and television, credited with 218 producer and executive producer roles which began in 1954.

In 2001, Spelling was diagnosed with oral cancer which was followed in 2006 by a stroke. He died at home from complications of that stroke on June 23, 2006.[1]
