Howard shares the small screen with Melissa Gilbert of "Little House on the Prairie" fame in the film, "Sacrifices of the Heart," airing on Saturday, March 3 at 9 p.m. EST. He plays a character named Thane Weston, who begins having memory lapses, and his son, Ryan (played by Cyril O’Reilly, at right in the photo below), asks his estranged sister, Kate (Gilbert), to return home as they try to find the cause. In the process, old wounds are reopened for the family, giving them a last chance at healing, the Hallmark press info also says.

By the way ... did you know Howard was married in the 1970s to one of our "Santa Barbara" bright-lights, Louise Sorel (Augusta Lockridge)? Fun!
Coming up tomorrow ... "What it Means to Be a 'Dukes' Fan." You won't want to miss it.
