Angie Dickinson
Click to read the full biography.
is an American actress who has appeared in more than 50 films and starred on television as Sergeant Leann "Pepper" Anderson in the successful 1970s crime series Police Woman.

In 1953, she placed second in a beauty pageant. Soon after her first marriage to Gene Dickinson she decided to pursue a career in acting. She studied the craft and a few years later was approached by NBC to guest-star on a number of variety shows, including The Colgate Comedy Hour. She soon met Frank Sinatra who became a lifelong friend. She would later play Sinatra's wife in the film Ocean's Eleven.

On New Year's Eve 1954, Dickinson made her acting debut in an episode of Death Valley Days. This led to other roles in such productions as Buffalo Bill Jr, eight episodes of Matinee Theatre, City Detective, Gray Ghost, General Electric Theater, The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, Broken Arrow, Meet McGraw (twice), Northwest Passage, Gunsmoke, The Virginian, Tombstone Territory, Cheyenne, Meet McGraw, The Restless Gun, Perry Mason, Mike Hammer, Wagon Train, Men Into Space, and a memorable turn as the duplicitous murder conspirator in a 1964 episode of the classic The Fugitive series with David Janssen and fellow guest star Robert Duvall. In 1965, she had a recurring role as Carol Tredman on Dr. Kildare.

Dickinson's film career began with small roles in Lucky Me (1954) with Doris Day, The Return of Jack Slade (1955), Man with the Gun (1955) and Hidden Guns (1956). She had her first starring role in Gun the Man Down (1956) with James Arness, followed by the Sam Fuller cult film China Gate (1957), which depicted an early view of the internal conflicts in Vietnam.

Casting directors began noticing her enigmatic charisma and her ironic, albeit seductive, delivery - at once femininely fluttery, yet undeniably edgy. She was armed with a fine physique, great legs, deepset brown eyes which could read as either warmly receptive or aloofly dismissive, and a striking, classical face which photographed as oval from the front but angular in profile.

In 1959, Dickinson appeared in Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo, in which she played a flirtatious gambler called "Feathers" who becomes attracted to the town sheriff played by Dickinson's childhood idol John Wayne. The film co-starred Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson and Walter Brennan. When Hawks sold his personal contract with her to a major studio without her knowledge, she was unhappy. Dickinson nonetheless became one of the more prominent leading ladies of the next decade, beginning with The Bramble Bush with Richard Burton and Ocean's Eleven with friends Sinatra and Martin, two films released in 1960.

These were followed by the political potboiler A Fever in the Blood (1961); a Belgian Congo-based melodrama The Sins of Rachel Cade (1962), in which she played a missionary nurse tempted by lust; and the European travelogue Rome Adventure (also known as Lovers Must Learn) in 1962; and Jean Negulesco's Jessica (1962) with Maurice Chevalier, in which she plays a young midwife who is resented by the married women of the town. Angie would also share the screen with friend Gregory Peck in the comedy-drama Captain Newman, M.D.

In The Killers, a film originally intended to be the very first made-for-TV movie but released to theatres due to its violent content, Dickinson reached the apex of her skills as a femme fatale. She is slapped by a villainous boyfriend, played by future U.S. President Ronald Reagan in his last movie role. This movie was directed by Don Siegel. It was a remake of the 1946 version based on a story by Ernest Hemingway.

Dickinson co-starred in the comedy The Art of Love (1965), in which she plays the love interest of both James Garner and Dick Van Dyke. She appeared in a star-studded Arthur Penn/Sam Spiegel production, The Chase (1966) along with Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, Robert Duvall and others.

Dickinson's best movie of this era was arguably John Boorman's cult classic Point Blank (1967), a lurid crime drama with Lee Marvin as a criminal betrayed by his wife and best friend and out for revenge. Epitomizing the stark urban mood of the period, the film's reputation has grown through the years.

Westerns would continue to be a part of her work in 1969, when she starred in Young Billy Young with Robert Mitchum, and in Sam Whiskey, where she gave a young Burt Reynolds his first on-screen kiss.

In 1971, she played a lascivious high school teacher in the dark comedy Pretty Maids All in a Row with Rock Hudson. One of Dickinson's best-known and most sexually provocative movie roles became the tawdry widow Wilma McClatchie from the Great Depression romp Big Bad Mama (1974) with William Shatner and Tom Skerritt. Although well into her forties at the time, she appeared nude in several scenes, creating interest in the movie and a new generation of male fans for Dickinson.

Dickinson returned to the small screen in March 1974 to play lead in an episode of the critically-acclaimed hit anthology series Police Story. That one guest appearance proved to be so popular that NBC offered Dickinson her own television show which became a ground-breaking weekly police series called Police Woman; it would be the first successful hour-long dramatic tv series to feature a woman in the title role. At first, Dickinson was reluctant to accept the role, but agreed to do the tv show when she decided she wanted to be a household name.

In the series, she played Sgt. Leanne "Pepper" Anderson, an officer of the Los Angeles Police Department's Criminal Conspiracy Unit. The show became a significant hit, even reaching Number One in many countries in which it aired during its first year. It would run for four seasons and Dickinson would win a Golden Globe award, and receive Emmy nominations for three consecutive years.

Co-starring on the show was Earl Holliman as Sergeant Bill Crowley, Andersen's commanding officer, along with Charles Dierkop as investigator Pete Royster and Ed Bernard as investigator Joe Styles.

The success of Dickinson's Police Woman television show resulted in a number of female-starring series like Charlie's Angels, Wonder Woman, The Bionic Woman, and Cagney and Lacey during the 1970s and 1980s. In 1987, the Los Angeles Police Department awarded Dickinson an honorary doctorate, which led her to quip, "Now you can call me Doctor Pepper."

After appearing in the TV mini-series Pearl (1978), Dickinson returned to the big screen in Brian De Palma's thriller Dressed to Kill (1980). The role earned her a 1981 Saturn Award for Best Actress. The film featured Dickinson in a 35-minute sequence, dialogue free, being stalked through the maze of a New York museum and ending shockingly with her character's brutal murder.

Earlier that year, she had been the first choice to play the character Krystle Carrington on the television series Dynasty but she turned it down; the role instead went to Linda Evans.

After nixing her own Johnny Carson-produced prospective sitcom, The Angie Dickinson Show, in 1980 after only two episodes had been shot because she didn't feel she was funny enough, the private-eye series Cassie & Co. became her unsuccessful attempt at a TV comeback. She then starred in several TV movies such as, One Shoe Makes it Murder (1982), Jealousy (1984), A Touch of Scandal (1984), and Stillwatch (1987). She also had a pivotal role in the highly rated mini-series Hollywood Wives (1985), based on a novel by Jackie Collins.

In 1995, Sydney Pollack cast her as the prospective mother-in-law of Greg Kinnear in the romantic comedy Sabrina starring Harrison Ford, a remake of the Billy Wilder classic. She also played Burt Reynolds' wife in the thriller The Maddening and the mother of Rick Aiello and Robert Cicchini in the National Lampoon comedy The Don's Analyst. In 1997, she also seduced old flame Artie (Rip Torn) in an episode of HBO's The Larry Sanders Show called "Artie and Angie and Hank and Hercules."

During the first decade of the new millennium, Dickinson played an alcoholic, homeless mother to Helen Hunt in Pay it Forward (2000); the grandmother of Gwyneth Paltrow in the drama Duets (2000) and the mother of Arliss Howard in Big Bad Love (2001), co-starring Debra Winger.

Having appeared in the original Ocean's Eleven (1960) with good friends Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, four decades later she made a brief cameo in the 2001 remake with George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

An avid poker player, during the summer of 2004 she participated in the second season of Bravo's Celebrity Poker Showdown. After announcing her name, host Dave Foley said "Sometimes, when we say 'celebrity,' we actually mean it."

Dickinson is a recipient of the state of North Dakota's Roughrider Award.

In 1999, Playboy ranked Dickinson #42 on their list of the '100 Sexiest Stars of the Century'. And in 2002, TV Guide ranked her #3 on their list of the '50 Sexiest TV Stars of All Time', behind Diana Rigg and George Clooney (who tied for #1).

In July 2009, Dickinson starred in a Hallmark Channel film, Mending Fences.

Burt Ward

Click to read the full biography.
Little did aspiring actor Burt Ward know that learning martial arts in addition to his mental and athletic prowess would change his life forever.

As a teen-ager, Burt had all the makings of a true boy wonder. As an all around athlete, strong in martial arts, wrestling, track, tennis and golf, combined with a sharp intellect, playing “first board” in chess for Beverly Hills High School, achieving the top 3% in the U.S. in math and science tests at UCLA, and becoming the world’s fastest reader – Burt tested before the American Medical Society in Beverly Hills, California and was clocked at 30,000 words per minute with 90% comprehension (the average reader reads 240 words per minute with 40% comprehension). Burt was featured in an article entitled, “Will the Real Boy Wonder Please Stand Up” and subsequently appeared on the national television educational show “Read Right.”

With the help of his father, a prominent real estate broker in Beverly Hills, CA, Burt became one of the youngest real estate agents in California, and met producer, Saul David, who arranged for him to sign with a Hollywood agent. His first interview was set up at 20th Century Fox Studios, and a few weeks later, Burt was called back for a screen test with Adam West. Holder of a brown belt in karate at the time, Burt showed off his athletic ability for the producers by demonstrating some falls and tumbles, and even broke a one-inch pine board with his hand. Later, Burt attained his black belt from his instructor, All Korean champion, Young Ik Suh. Burt was friends with Bruce Lee. A special piece of movie trivia is that Bruce Lee’s first filmed fight scene of his career was fighting Burt Ward. In October 2015, Burt was inducted into the International Karate and Kickboxing Hall of Fame.

Executive Producer William Dozier commented about Ward’s tall size in comparison to Adam West, and the new Boy Wonder prospect replied, “I promise you, sir, I won’t grow anymore.” Dozier laughed and told Burt that he would hold him to that.

It wasn’t until six weeks after the screen test that Burt learned that he had won the coveted role of Robin, the Boy Wonder in the new “Batman” TV series for ABC-TV. He was everything they wanted. All he had to do was just be himself.

Batman Was an Overnight Sensation!

Biff, Bam, Boom! The Ratings Soared!

Burt and Adam West made hundreds of personal appearances together and were featured in dozens of magazine articles, including the cover of Life magazine.

Years later, when accepting Harvard’s “Man of the Year” award, Burt brought one of his original Robin costumes, even then valued at six figures. Some students came up to him dressed as security guards and told him they would keep the costume safe. Then, in the middle of Burt’s speech, one student stood up and asked, "When is a costume not a costume? When it's stolen." The lights dimmed and the students grabbed the costume and made off. After snapping photos with one another in the cape, they later called Ward and gave the costume back. The ringleader of the gang? Harvard Lampoon editor, Conan O'Brien.

From “Caped Crusader” to “Canine Crusader”

In 1994, Burt and his wife, Tracy Posner Ward, philanthropist and daughter of former corporate raider and billionaire, Victor Posner, rescued a Great Dane in distress. From this experience, they learned about dozens of other Great Danes also needing homes. When they called weeks later to see what had happened to the others, they was horrified to hear that they had all been destroyed. Both Burt and Tracy have a huge love for animals. They made a decision, and created a rescue for Great Danes and other giant dog breeds.

Located 50 miles east of Los Angeles, Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions is a nonprofit charity created by Burt and Tracy. Gentle Giants has rescued and adopted more than 15,500 giant breed and small breed dogs during their 22 years of operation. All of their dogs are socialized and behaviorally trained, and live communally together in their home. Gentle Giants is now the largest giant breed dog rescue in the world and rescues and finds homes for 45 different dog breeds, ranging from 2 lbs. to 300 lbs

Traditionally, giant breed dogs usually have short lifespans, living 6-8 years or 7-9 years, depending upon the breed. Spending millions of dollars of their own money and more than a decade of research and testing, and combining their special care and feeding program with their own all natural Gentle Giants dog food, Burt and Tracy have successfully doubled the average lifespan of their rescued giant breed dogs, and significantly lengthened the average lifespan of their rescued small and medium breed dogs as well, with dogs living as long as 27 active, healthy years.

Gentle Giants Products manufacturers all natural Gentle Giants dog food which is sold in more than 1,250 stores in California, and in 339 Walmart Supercenters in Oregon, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Louisiana, North Carolina and Florida. Gentle Giants dog food is sold nationally through mail order on Chewy.com, Walmart.com, and Amazon.com. In California, Gentle Giants is sold in Walmart Supercenters, Stater Bros. Ralphs, and Gelson’s.

Gentle Giants has a spectacular new line of wet (canned) dog food, with 90% Beef, 90% Chicken, and 90% Salmon. Gentle Giants Products also has a new line of super premium dog supplements and super premium dog treats.

The Caped Crusader has truly evolved into the Canine Crusader.

BarBara Luna

Click to read the full biography.
BarBara Luna was born in Manhattan and virtually grew up in theatre. Rodgers & Hammerstein cast her in the Broadway musical South Pacific to create the role of Ezio Pinza's daughter Ngana, which was spoken & sung (Dites-Moi) entirely in French.

Several years later when she outgrew her sarong, Luna, as she prefers to be called, was again cast by R&H when they were prepping The King & I Two years later when she grew too tall to be one of the Siamese children, Jerome Robbins recognized her abilities and made her swing girl of the company. When the show was closing, not wanting to go on tour, she auditioned for the understudy role of Lotus Blossom in Teahouse of the August Moon. By the way, this role was spoken entirely in Japanese! Not only was she hired, eight months later Luna was asked to star with Burgess Meredith in the first national touring company.

While appearing with Teahouse in Los Angeles, Luna was discovered by director Mervyn Leroy to portray the blind girl, Camille, love interest to Frank Sinatra in The Devil at 4'Oclock also starring Spencer Tracy. This led to other films such as Firecreek with James Stewart & Henry Fonda. Working under the direction of Stanley Kramer in Ship of Fools was not only challenging but one of the highlights in Luna's career. Working with International legends, Vivian Leigh, Simone Signoret, & Oskar Werner was quite an experience!

Portraying Cat, queen bee of the prison in The Concrete Jungle, which is now considered a cult film, was an even greater challenge, after all, how often does one get to portray a drug pushing lesbian killer? Irwin Allen's Five Weeks in a Balloon Starring Red Buttons, Fabian, & Barbara Eden gave Luna another chance to work with several other film legends, Peter Lorre, Sir Cedric Hardwicke and Herbert Marshall.

Luna feels honored to be so well remembered for her portrayal of Marlena Moreau in the all-time classic episode Mirror Mirror from the original Star Trek series. She has guest starred on nearly five hundred Television shows and feels privileged to have participated in so many genres. Some of her favorites are: Walt Disney's Zorro The Big Valley Hawaii Five-O Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Outer Limits and loved working again with Mr Shatner on TJ HOOKER!

In between film commitments, she appeared as Anita, in five companies of West Side Story including a revival at Lincoln Center in New York City. In Chorus Line on Broadway Luna sang What I did for Love in the role of Morales. This inspired the multi-talented Luna to meet with Hairspray Tony award winners and exec producers of "SMASH Marc Shaiman & Scott Whitman. They prepared a nightclub act for her, which immediately resulted in Luna appearing with Bill Cosby in Atlantic City.

Wanting to do something different, Luna ventured into the world of Soap Opera, first in the role of Anna Ryder on Search for Tomorrow, and then Maria Roberts The Bitch everyone loved to hate On One Life to Live. Traveling around the world to attend conventions and meeting the fans has been heart warming, informative and loads of fun, for this she is grateful. Luna is retired from acting however, look for her on Youtube in Super Sevens Operation Destructo & Star Trek Phase II Enemy Starfleet with James Cawley.
