Tommy Kirk
Click to read the full biography.
Kirk was discovered by talent agents at the age of thirteen. Hired by Walt Disney Productions, he was cast as a clean-cut teenager in The Hardy Boys serial feature which was aired in the The Mickey Mouse Club television series in 1956 and 1957.

Kirk played Joe Hardy opposite Tim Considine as older brother Frank Hardy in two serials: The Mystery of the Applegate Treasure (September 21, 1956 - February 1, 1957), based on the book The Tower Treasure, and the original story The Mystery of Ghost Farm (September 13 - December 20, 1957).

Kirk went on to starring roles in a succession of successful Disney feature films, in both dramatic and comedic settings. He played Travis Coates in Old Yeller (1957), an adventure story about a boy and his heroic dog. He then played a dog himself in The Shaggy Dog (1959), a comedy about a boy inventor, Wilby Daniels, who is repeatedly transformed into an Old English Sheep Dog under the influence of a magic ring. He had a more straightforward role as middle son Ernst Robinson in another adventure film, Swiss Family Robinson (1960). Kirk then played the "scrambled egghead" student inventor Merlin Jones in two comedies, The Misadventures of Merlin Jones (1964) and The Monkey's Uncle (1965). Other major Disney roles for Tommy Kirk included that of college student Biff Hawk in The Absent-Minded Professor (1961) and its sequel, Son of Flubber (1963), and as Grumio in the fairy tale fantasy Babes in Toyland.

In several of these films, Kirk played the older brother of child actor Kevin Corcoran, better known as Moochie. Veteran actor Fred MacMurray starred in at least four of Tommy Kirk's films, The Shaggy Dog , The Absent-Minded Professor, Son of Flubber, and Bon Voyage!. Annette Funicello played Kirk's girlfriend in the two Merlin Jones films and the girl Wilby passes over in The Shaggy Dog. MacMurray once reportedly gave Kirk "the biggest dressing-down of my life" during the filming of Bon Voyage!, one that Kirk says he deserved.[3] But Kirk maintained good relationships with his fellow actors. "Tommy played my brother in a lot of films and put up with a lot of things that I did to him over the years," Corcoran says in a commentary on the DVD release of Old Yeller. "He must be a great person not to hate me." Tim Considine calls Kirk "a monster talent".

He played in several of the 1960s beach party films and teen movie films, notably in American International Pictures' Pajama Party (taking Frankie Avalon's usual lead role opposite Annette Funicello while Avalon only appears in cameo role), The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini (with Deborah Walley), and later in the independent It's a Bikini World (paired again with Walley). He starred in Village of the Giants (1965) and appeared in a cameo in AIP's spy-spoof film, Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. In 1966, Kirk starred in The Unkissed Bride (Mother Goose a Go-Go). He costarred with "Batgirl" Yvonne Craig in AIP's Mars Needs Women, released in 1968. He appeared with Lyle Waggoner in the beach movie/crime comedy Catalina Caper (1967), which along with Village of the Giants were eventually lampooned on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Disney legend

Tommy Kirk was inducted as a Disney Legend on October 9, 2006, alongside his old co-stars Tim Considine and Kevin Corcoran.

April Tatro
Click to read the full biography.
a former contortionist and actress who appeared in the role of Isis in her Human form in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Assignment: Earth" in an uncredited role. She filmed her scene on Friday 5 January 1968 at Paramount Stage 5.

In fan circles it was long speculated that the briefly seen Human form of the cat Isis was portrayed by actress Victoria Vetri, and this had been repeated so often that many articles and websites treated it as fact. However, Vetri herself confirmed that she was not in the episode: "I was never in an episode of STAR TREK. I know that people think I was [...] I am not sure who she was. Look close enough and you can see that she has blue eyes and I, of course, have brown." (Little Shope of Horrors #41, p. 71)

On 12 March 2019 (citing a production call sheet for extras dated 5 January 1968), Larry Nemecek revealed on his podcast The Trek Files that the Human form of Isis was portrayed by actress, dancer, and contortionist April Tatro.

April also appeared with Lynda Carter in "Wonder Woman", and also "Big Top Pee-Wee", "Malcom In The Middle", & "Blazing Saddles"

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.

an American actor, singer, and former teen idol.Avalon had 31 charted U.S. Billboard singles from 1958 to late 1962, including the number one hits "Venus" and "Why" in 1959.

In December 1952, Avalon made his American network television debut playing the trumpet in the Honeymooners "Christmas Party" sketch on The Jackie Gleason Show. Two singles showcasing Avalon's trumpet playing were issued on RCA Victor's "X" sublabel in 1954.His trumpet playing was also featured on some of his LP songs as well. As a teenager he played with Bobby Rydell in Rocco and the Saints.[citation needed]

In 1959, "Venus" (5 weeks #1) and "Why" went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100. "Why" was the last #1 of the 1950s.

Avalon had 31 charted U.S. Billboard singles from 1958 to late 1962, including "Just Ask Your Heart" (U.S. #7), "I'll Wait for You" (U.S. #15), "Bobby Sox to Stockings" (U.S. #8), and "A Boy Without a Girl" (U.S. #10). He was less popular in the U.K., but did still manage four chart hits with "Why", "Ginger Bread", "Venus" and "Don't Throw Away All Those Teardrops". Most of his hits were written and/or produced by Bob Marcucci, head of Chancellor Records.

Avalon's first film was a short appearance in Jamboree (1957), playing a trumpet and singing "Teacher's Pet".

In the late 1950s, teen idols were often given roles in films, supporting older male stars in order to attract a younger audience, such as Ricky Nelson in Rio Bravo (1959). Alan Ladd's daughter was a Frankie Avalon fan, who recommended that he co-star with her father in the Western Guns of the Timberland (1960). Avalon sings two songs, "The Faithful Kind" and "Gee Whiz Whillikins Golly Gee"; both were released as singles.

Ladd announced he would reteam Avalon and his daughter in Six Steps to Freedom but the film was never made.

Rushes for Timberland were seen by John Wayne, who was looking for a young actor to play the (fictitious) role of "Smitty" in his passion project, The Alamo (1960). Avalon was cast in his second dramatic part After making the film Wayne told the press "We're not cutting one bit of any scene in which Frankie appears. I believe he is the finest young talent I've seen in a long time."[11] "Mr Wayne said I was natural as far as acting goes," said Avalon He added, "My ambition when I was ten years old was to have my own band like Harry James. I never expected anything like this... I'd like to be identified as a singer, dancer and actor. I don't want to be just one thing."

"I like to appeal to teenagers and adults," he said in 1960. "Everybody".

Avalon was now in demand as an actor. He provided the singing voice for the lead character in the English language version of a Japanese musical anime, Alakazam the Great (1960), which was done at the behest of the US distributor, American International Pictures - the first in what would be a long association with that company.

For Irwin Allen, Avalon had a small role and sang the title song in the science fiction adventure film, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961), a solid hit. He had a support role in a comedy, Sail a Crooked Ship (1961).

Avalon was teamed with Ray Milland in the science fiction film, Panic in Year Zero! (1962), written by Lou Rusoff. Samuel Z. Arkoff of American International Pictures (AIP) said Avalon and Milland were teamed together because "they both have particular types of followers and the combination adds up to an attraction."

For AIP, Avalon made a war movie with Tab Hunter, Operation Bikini (1963), singing a few songs in flashback. At MGM he played the lead in an adventure film set in Africa, Drums of Africa (1963).

Of more significance for Avalon's career was a project originally written by Rusoff, Beach Party (1963). This cheerful musical comedy starred Annette Funicello and was directed by William Asher; Arkoff said AIP originally wanted Fabian Forte to co-star with Funicello, but when he proved unavailable they went with Avalon. It was a big hit and led to several sequels.

Avalon received an offer to appear in a swashbuckler set in 10th century Spain about Fernán González of Castile, The Castilian (1963), then was in the first Beach Party sequel, Muscle Beach Party (1963). It was popular; even more so was Bikini Beach (1964), where Avalon had a dual role. In August 1964 Avalon announced he signed to make ten films in five years for AIP.

Pajama Party (1964) was unofficially the fourth in the series; it was a science fiction spoof, Avalon ceded leading man duties to Tommy Kirk, but he had a cameo. He was back as leading man in Beach Blanket Bingo (1965). Avalon later recalled, "'That's the picture of mine that I think people remember best, and it was just a lot of kids having a lot of fun -- a picture about young romance and about the opposition of adults and old people... It was also fun because we got to learn how to fake skydive out of an airplane."

Avalon appeared in nearly two dozen TV episodes, including ABC's The Bing Crosby Show and The Patty Duke Show, appearing often as himself. Later, he became a national television spokesperson for Sonic Drive-In. In 1965 he appeared in the Combat! episode "Brother, Brother" as a childhood friend of Pfc.Kirby, played by Jack Hogan.

Avalon and Tuesday Weld supported Bob Hope in a comedy, I'll Take Sweden (1965) for Edward Small. For AIP he teamed with Dwayne Hickman in a rip off of Some Like It Hot (1959), Ski Party (1965). That studio gave him the lead in a service comedy, Sergeant Deadhead (1965), playing another dual role. All this activity meant he was reluctant to appear in another "beach party" movie, so he let Hickman play the lead in How to Stuff a Wild Bikini (1965), although Avalon had a cameo.

The box office performance of these last few films were disappointing - especially Sergeant Deadhead, for which sequels had been planned.] More popular was Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965), a comedy with Vincent Price and Hickman, for AIP. This was liked enough to justify a sequel, although Avalon did not appear, Fabian Forte taking over.

In January 1966, Avalon said he no longer wanted to make beach films. "Even a seagull leaves the beach from time to time and I'm getting a little sick of sand," he said.

AIP tried to find a new formula for Avalon, and cast him as a stock car driver in Fireball 500 (1966), alongside Fabian and Funicello, for director William Asher. It was a medium success, and led to other AIP stock car movies, though none with Avalon.

For Harry Alan Towers he played the lead in The Million Eyes of Sumuru (1967), and had a good part in Skidoo (1968), a comedy from Otto Preminger. In England he was in The Haunted House of Horror (1968) for AIP.

1970s and 1980s

In 1976, Avalon updated his song "Venus" with a new disco treatment.

Materializing as a character called Teen Angel, his performance of "Beauty School Dropout" in the hit 1978 film of the musical Grease introduced Avalon to a new generation of viewers.

The 1980 film The Idolmaker, written by Ed Di Lorenzo and directed by Taylor Hackford, was a thinly-disguised biography of Avalon ("Tommy Dee" in the film) as well as 1950s teenage star Fabian Forte (called "Caesare" in the film), along with songwriter/producer Bob Marcucci (called "Vinnie Vacarri"). In the film, Dee clashes with the record producer and younger singer Caesare, who he feels threatens his career. Eventually, Dee and Caesare quit the label, but their record careers collapse just as the British Invasion begins. The real Fabian threatened a lawsuit, despite the filmmakers' insistence that the film presented only fictional characters (though Marcucci was a paid consultant). Avalon denied most of the film's events.

Avalon had the idea of returning to beach party films with Funicello. He hired several screenwriters and shopped the screenplay around town, eventually managing to set up the project at Paramount Pictures. Back to the Beach (1987) was a moderate success.

In 1989, Avalon and Funicello appeared as themselves in cameo roles out jogging the streets in Troop Beverly Hills. Not long afterwards, Funicello was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and retired.

Later career

Avalon made a cameo appearance as himself with Robert De Niro in the 1995 film, Casino.

In recent years, Avalon has starred in stage productions of Grease in the role of Teen Angel and Tony n' Tina's Wedding as a caricature of himself. Additionally, in 2007, he performed "Beauty School Dropout" with the four remaining female contenders (Kathleen Monteleone, Allie Schulz, Ashley Spencer, and winner Laura Osnes) for the role of Sandy on the NBC television reality show Grease: You're the One that I Want!

On April 8, 2009, Avalon performed on American Idol.

As part of a long-running concert tour, Avalon has toured with fellow Philadelphian early 60s teen idols Fabian and Bobby Rydell under the banner "Dick Fox's Golden Boys."

Up and running Hank Garrett became well known to all the television industry. Two years later the show was cancelled and Hank went on to play a host of other TV and film characters, both live AND animated!

Hank's career really took off when he landed a part in a movie which would feature his signature role: the infamous killer postman in "Three Days of the Condor," for which he won the New York Film Critics' Award.

Jann Karam
Click to read the full biography.
Winsome comic's comic Jann Karam - whose blithe and incisive standup work has long brightened national television screens and top-tier comedy stages - found her comedy career footing while attending Arizona State University and regularly turning up on open mic nights at Macayo's Mexican Food Restaurant in Scottsdale. She was paid one chimichanga per joke.

After developing her act (and gaining 13 pounds), she moved to New York City, where she began working as a professional comedian. Her numerous TV credits--stand up performances and series acting roles--include repeat appearances on both The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman, HBO's legendary 13th Annual Young Comedians' Show, How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life), Comics Unleashed, The Arsenio Hall Show, Norm, Mad About You, Politically Incorrect, Dr. Katz, and many others.

She was a regular sketch player in the last incarnation of The Carol Burnett Show and, in the now classic Seinfeld episode "The Switch," Jann played Sandy (the one who never laughed)-rated #1 all-time inamorata by UPROXX in the 2014 feature, "A Very Important and Scientific Ranking of Jerry's Girlfriends on 'Seinfeld.'"

Jann's critically acclaimed theatrical solo play, Reclining Nude on La Cienega was recently produced and recorded for broadcast by legendary comedy icon and Laugh-In creator George Schlatter. As a filmmaker, her inimitably mischievous perspective is quite naturally enhanced in Under the Big Muu-Muu, Jann's half-hour short that quirkily explores the universal agonies of seeking motherly approval. The Castle Rock Entertainment produced 35mm film earned multiple laurels on the festival circuit, as well as the deep admiration of the famously unsentimental Jerry Seinfeld: "Funny and original. If you have a mother, when you get to the end, you can't not cry." As a stand-up comedian ("a woman blessed with looks, talent and the gift of restraint," declared the LA Times early on), Jann headlines nationwide and also regularly tours with SNL alumnus Dana Carvey.

Additionally, she's released two successful comedy albums-Live at the Blue Loon and Same Guy, Different Shirt. She recently taped her own documentary special, tentatively titled Beyond the Set, a jarringly intimate behind-the-scenes look at the emotional thrill-ride of stand-up comedy through her unique lens.

In addition to theatre studies at Arizona State University (Jann graduated cum laude), she studied Improv at Chicago's Second City with Del Close and was a longtime student of renowned acting teacher, Sanford Meisner (himself) in both New York and Los Angeles.

Jann's latest single-camera half-hour pilot script, Me & Tata is about a sweet, naive grandmotherly Syrian immigrant, Tata (based on her own Syrian-born grandmother), who, by sheer luck, makes her way to Los Angeles and inadvertently becomes the new roommate of Jann- single, half-Syrian, half Lebanese, all-American-- a struggling stand-up comedian/actor/fitness teacher/caterer who lives modestly but with compassion and awareness (and two cats) in Koreatown.

Lou Wagner

Lou Wagner was born in San Jose, California. He has the ability to take very little and turn it into a fortune. At 5' 2", Lou was told his chances for success in this business were slight. Upon arriving in Los Angeles, Lou banged his head against every door in town trying to find an agent, and was always turned down because he was too short or looked too young.

Finally, someone kiddingly said he "should get a children's agentand, even though he was 25 at the time, could easily pass for a teenager; he went into Mary Grady's office- a leading children's agent- talked his way into an interview, and was signed that day!

It was that determination which showed Lou was not afraid start at the bottom in search of what he wanted---or afraid to go to the top. After getting an agent, Lou immediately went to the best theatre group in town and asked for a job- Paul Levit was running the prestigious Players Ring, and told Lou told him that he would work©seven days a week, twelve hours a day for nothing, just for the opportunity to be around the very best!" and Paul hired him on the spot. Lou became a jack of all trades, mailing programs, running lights, painting scenery, selling tickets, and all the while learning. From this initial exposure to the theatre, Lou landed a small part playing a leper.

His hard work and tenacity throughout this period began to pay off when Lou began to land a variety of "smart-alecky little kid roles including parts on series such as "Dragnet "Lost in Space, and "Mayberry R.F.D.". He also landed a choice role in the hit movie Airport", in which Lou, actually 29 at the time, played a 15 year old boy. After this, Lou began to land other, more substantial parts, such as starring roles on successful series' such as "Macmillan and Wife Columbo and "Happy Days". This ultimately led to his big breakthrough as "Lucius, the young idealistic ape in the widely hailed "Planet of the Apesfilm and went on to recreate this role in 2 of the sequels: "Beneath the Planet of the Apes and "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes

During the second stage of his career, Lou devoted every dime he had towards studying. His list of teachers and coaches reads like a who's who of Hollywood, including: "Second City James Frawley, Lou Antonio, Madeleine Sherwood, and Lee Strasberg.

This constant studying plus the continuous work and experience he was receiving, meant that Lou was ready when his next opportunity came along.

Riding high in the mid 1970's after completing the two sequels to the "Planet of the Apes" films, and having found some financial security through landing a choice commercial role as "The Professor in the original McDonald Land commercials, Lou landed a small role on a new series called "CHiPs" as the loveable "Whiz Kid mechanic and technician with the chip on his shoulder- because he was too short to become a cop- Harlan Arliss. Impressed with his work, and the public's response of the character, the producers of CHiPs expanded Lou's part, making him a regular on the show for five years, and eventually building whole stories and subplots around his character.

Mark Goddard
Click to read the full biography.
is an American film actor who has starred in a number of television shows. He is most widely known for his role as Dr. Zachary Smith's (played by Jonathan Harris) long-suffering space partner and adversary, Major Don West, in the cult 1960s TV series, Lost in Space.

In 1959, after just three weeks in Hollywood, he landed a role in the CBS Four Star Television series Johnny Ringo, having played the character of Cully, the deputy, to Don Durant's character of Ringo. At this time, he changed his name to Mark Goddard at the suggestion of his friend and mentor, Chuck Connors. Goddard appeared as Norman Tabor in the 1960 episode "Surprise Party" of CBS's anthology series The DuPont Show with June Allyson.

Goddard was also signed for a role lasting three years in the TV show The Detectives Starring Robert Taylor, another series produced by Four Star Television. The Detectives was a hit series which ran on ABC and NBC from 1958-'61, and starred movie actor Robert Taylor, along with actors Tige Andrews, Russell Thorson, and Goddard as Detective Chris Ballard.

In 1963, Goddard appeared as Roy Mooney in the Perry Mason episode 180, "The Case of the Potted Planter". He appeared at the time with Keir Dullea as sparring college roommates in an episode of ABC's drama series Channing, costarring Jason Evers and Henry Jones. He was featured in the 1965 film A Rage to Live starring Suzanne Pleshette.

From 1964-1965, Goddard starred in another one-season CBS series, Many Happy Returns, in which he portrayed Bob Randall, the young husband of Joan Randall, played by Elinor Donahue, formerly of Father Knows Best and The Andy Griffith Show. The program starred John McGiver (1913-'1975) as the head of the complaint department of a fictitious Los Angeles department store. Elena Verdugo and Mickey Manners were also in the cast.

Lost in Space

Goddard's next role was for the three seasons of the CBS television series Lost in Space (1965-68), playing Major Don West. There were two pilots shot for the series. The original 1965 pilot was much different from the pilot that aired and the episodes that followed in the actual series. There was a blossoming romance between Don West and Judy, the eldest daughter of the Robinson family, but it didn't extend further than the first season. By the middle of the second season, the show took on a more comic tone.

The plotlines increasingly centered around the mishaps of Dr. Zachary Smith (Jonathan Harris) and his friends who could always be counted upon to save him and all of the inhabitants of the Jupiter II ” the Robot (Bob May) and Will Robinson (Bill Mumy), the youngest of the three Robinson children. Castmates included Guy Williams, the former star of Zorro (1957-'59), as Professor John Robinson and the credited star of the series; June Lockhart, the former star of Lassie (1959-'64), as Dr. Maureen Robinson; Marta Kristen as elder daughter Judy Robinson, and Angela Cartwright (The Sound of Music as well as in all seven seasons of the classic 1957-64 Danny Thomas sitcom Make Room for Daddy), as young daughter Penny Robinson.

Goddard's on- and off-screen chemistry with Jonathan Harris had been very remarkable. After Goddard's best-known role on Space, Goddard remained very close to Harris. On June 14, 1995, he and the rest of his cast paid tribute to producer Irwin Allen who had died late in 1991. On October 16, 1997 (the same day the show's fictional Jupiter 2 spaceship was supposed to take off in the original episode), Goddard and the rest of the surviving Lost in Space cast also appeared on the inside cover of TV Guide, to promote the new Lost in Space movie while at the same time the Sci-Fi Channel had planned to do a Lost in Space marathon, according to the network. Goddard was grief-stricken when on November 3, 2002, his mentor and friend of 35+ years, Jonathan Harris, died. He, along with Harris and the rest of his cast were looking forward to doing the movie, Lost in Space: The Journey Home, which didn't come to fruition with NBC.

Goddard guest starred on series such as The Fugitive, The Mod Squad and The Fall Guy. At one point he moonlighted as a Hollywood agent. In 1976, he starred as politician Edward Fleming in the movie Blue Sunshine. In 1970, Goddard co-starred opposite Kent McCord, and Martin Milner, in a very poignant episode of the police drama Adam-12, in which he plays a friend of Pete Malloy (Milner) who is killed in the line of duty. The episode was entitled "Elegy For A Pig." He played a support role in a first season episode of Quincy M.E. as an attorney, about 1976. In 1978, Goddard starred with Liza Minnelli in The Act .

He appeared as Ted Clayton on One Life to Live and Lt. Paul Reed on The Doctors. Later, Goddard starred as 'Derek Barrington' on General Hospital.

He made a cameo appearance in 1998, in the movie Lost in Space, as the general in charge of the Jupiter Mission, and superior officer to his former character, Major Don West.

Micky Dolenz

CANCELED!

Micky Dolenz was born in Los Angeles on March 8, 1945. His father George, starred in a number of films, and played the title character in the mid-1950s television series The Count of Monte Cristo.

Micky Dolenz was born in Los Angeles on March 8, 1945. His father George, starred in a number of films, and played the title character in the mid-1950s 

television series The Count of Monte Cristo.

Micky first established himself as a performer at age ten when, under the stage name of “Mickey Braddock,” he starred in his own first TV series, Circus Boy, 

which aired on NBC and then ABC from 1956 to 1958. In his early teens, Micky guest-starred on a number of television shows. As he graduated high school

 and began attending college in the mid-‘60s, Dolenz also learned to play guitar. He soon began to perform with a number of rock ’n roll bands, including one 

called The Missing Links.

In the fall of 1965, Micky was one of 400 applicants who responded to a trade ad that announced auditions for a new TV show about a rock band. He auditioned 

for The Monkees’ TV show by playing and singing Chuck Berry’s legendary rocker “Johnny B. Goode,” and wound up chosen for the show along with three other 

actors: Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork.

The Monkees' debut single, "Last Train to Clarksville," featuring Micky on lead vocals, hit the charts on September 10, 1966 and rocketed swiftly to number one. 

Two days later, the television show debuted on NBC to great success. The TV ratings remained high for two seasons, and the show won two Emmy awards for the 

first season for “Outstanding Comedy Series” and “Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Comedy” going to veteran director James Frawley.

Micky and his fellow “TV bandmates” actually went on to become a real live rock band that first toured North America from late December 1966 to May 1967, and

then began a US / UK summer 1967 tour that featured (at Micky’s invite, following the Monterey Pop Festival) none other than guitar legend Jimi Hendrix as the 

opening act for the first few dates. It was around this time that Micky also acquired one of the first Moog synthesizers ever made, which he played on the Monkees’ 

track written by Nesmith, “Daily Nightly,” almost two years before its use by The Beatles on their final studio album, Abbey Road.

The Monkees also went on to star in their own feature film, Head, a 1968 psychedelic romp directed by the TV series’ co-creator Bob Rafelson from a script co-written

 by a young Jack Nicholson. The movie is now considered a cult classic.

The TV ratings for The Monkees remained high during its initial two- season run, which ended with Micky actually in the director’s chair for the series’ final episode 

called “Mijacogeo” (a.k.a., “The Frodis Caper”). While the “Pre-Fab Four” continued to be seen in re-runs, Dolenz turned his attention back to the origins of his trade—

acting, and now directing.

In 1977, Micky flew to London to star in the West End production of the musical The Point! written by singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson. He planned to stay three months. 

Instead, he remained in England for twelve years. During that time, he further honed his behind-the-camera skills begun onThe Monkees by working as a producer-

director for the BBC and London Weekend Television. 

He also directed a short feature film, The Box, written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones of famed British comedy team Monty Python, and helmed numerous music videos.

In the early 1980s, while in England, Dolenz directed a stage version of the Alan Parker-directed 1976 feature film Bugsy Malone—the cast of which included a then-

unknown 14-year-old Welsh actress named Catherine Zeta-Jones. From 1983 to 1984, he was also responsible for creating and 

producing the British children's television show Luna.

In 1986, the popular cable channel MTV re-broadcast episodes of The Monkees, exposing a whole new generation to the show and “Monkeemania.” Freshly back to the 

States, Micky joined with former Monkees bandmate Peter Tork to record new tracks for Arista Records. The first single, "That Was Then, This Is Now," became The
 Monkees’ first Top 20 record since 1968. Micky, Peter and fellow Monkee Davy Jones then subsequently reunited for a stellar 1986 summer tour, so successful that it 

sparked the reissue of all Monkees' classic LPs, as well as Pool It!, on Rhino Records.

At one point in 1987, there were seven Monkees' albums on Billboard's Top 200 LPs chart. By 1996, The Monkees again joined together; this time, for a "30th Year Reunion" 

summer tour across America. The response was so great that they toured again the following year, this time finishing up in England. Ultimately, The Monkees achieved their 

greatest success not as a TV show but as viable recording artists; selling in excess of 65 million units, and achieving worldwide success. Their first four albums—The Monkees 

(1966); More of The Monkees (1967); Headquarters (1967); and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, & Jones, Ltd. (1967) all reached the number-one position on the charts and

 launched three number-one singles: "Last Train to Clarksville," "I'm a Believer" (both with lead vocals by Micky), and "Daydream Believer." The group's first five albums 

also went platinum. Back home in the United States and with his powers as a live performer now hitting full stride, Micky went out on the road with the National Touring 

Company of Grease. He enjoyed musical theater so much that he went on to accept the lead role in a Canadian production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the 

Forum in 1993, and in 2004 he starred in the Elton John/Tim Rice Broadway musical Aida, as the character of “Zoser". In 1993, Micky's autobiography I'm A Believer: 

My Life Of Monkees, Music, and Madness (Hyperion/Disney) was published. In addition to writing, Micky has divided his time between acting (The Drew Carey Show, Days 

Of Our Lives, and General Hospital); directing (Boy Meets World for ABC/Disney, and Pacific Blue for USA Networks); and touring with his own band featuring his sister, 

Coco Dolenz. In 2005, Dolenz was also on WCBS-FM as a morning “drive-time” on-air personality, and soon wrote, along with illustrator David H. Clark, his first children's 

book, Gakky Two-Feet (Putnam/Penguin) as well as the Buzztime Trivia-associated game book Micky Dolenz' Rock ’n Rollin' Trivia (Square One Publishers).

June 2006 saw Dolenz onstage again in the role of “King Charlemagne” at the Goodspeed Opera House for the revival of the musical Pippin in East Haddam, 

Connecticut. He also toured later that year in the role. In 2007, he appeared in Rob Zombie's bloody remake of Halloween as “Derek Allan,” the somewhat eccentric 

owner of a gun shop where Dr. Sam Loomis (played by British actor Malcolm McDowell) buys a gun in his search for the famously murderous Michael Myers.

In April 2007, Dolenz was featured on FOX-TV’s American Idol on the "Idol Gives Back" episode, when the show filmed celebrities singing and dancing to the Saturday 

Night Fever hit "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees.

Micky also participated in the 2008–09 season of CMT's reality-TV music show Gone Country, competing against fellow celebrities Sheila E. (who eventually won), 

Taylor Dayne, George Clinton, and actor Richard Grieco.

Micky began 2010 with a comedic turn in the West End production of the hit musical Hairspray throughout the UK, playing the character of “Wilbur Turnblad.” His solo album, 

King for a Day—a tribute to the songs of Carole King—was released by Gigatone Records on August 31, 2010. On January 29, 2011, Dolenz appeared as himself in the Syfy Channel’s movie Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, alongside both Debbie Gibson and Tiffany.

Also in 2011, Micky regrouped with both Davy Jones and Peter Tork in order to perform a brand-new 45th anniversary Monkees tour starting that June. With performances 

both in England and the US (just as they had in 1967), the group garnered some of their best reviews ever—including an especially fine assessment of the band’s musical 

abilities from none other than Rolling Stone magazine. The press notices on Dolenz were particularly impressive, with the Huffington Post’s review comparing Micky’s voice

 to “a brilliant cross between Roy Orbison and Freddie Mercury.” The close of the tour, held at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California was especially joyous, as both 

fans and friends turned out for the event. They also appeared in August on the nationally broadcast talkfest, ABC’s talk show The View, with Dolenz's old compatriot 

Whoopi Goldberg as one of the hosts.

In 2012, word began to spread that Micky was beginning (or was it finishing?) an as-yet-untitled new solo album. The only concept revealed was that each of the songs 

were to represent a particular moment in Micky’s life to date. “An audio scrapbook,” said Dolenz. The album, Remember (Robo Records/Universal), would be released that 

September. Earlier that year in February, however, while in New York preparing for a possible new theater role in a musical called Garage Band, Micky received the tragic 

news that Davy Jones unexpectedly passed away. It was a moment that shook Micky as much as it had Davy’s fans throughout the world, and Micky paid loving and heartfelt 

tribute to the man he considered in so many ways “a brother” in a flurry of requested media interviews.

With a series of Davy Jones tributes scheduled, one done in early April at B.B. King's in New York, Micky then spent the summer of 2012 on a series of solo shows with his 

band and as part of the 2012 “Happy Together” tour. Micky also recorded a live album on October 19, 2012 at B.B. King's in Manhattan (with an introduction by Q104.3’s 

Jim Kerr), New York; and then, in a surprise move to Monkees fans everywhere, Micky regrouped in November with Peter Tork and the long-absent fourth Monkee, Michael 

Nesmith, for a series of Monkees reunion shows in the summer of 2012.

The 12-date tour around the US proved fantastically successful, immediately creating a demand for a follow-up series of engagements. Pollstar, the concert tour industry’s 

leading trade publication, placed it in its Top 20 grossing concert tours in 2012.

In January 2013, Dolenz embarked on a two-week series of performances in Hairspray to honor the 25th anniversary of the film written and directed by John Waters (who 

himself portrayed the Narrator during the performances). Dolenz and his own band also performed throughout the spring, including the venerable “Flower Power” concerts 

at Epcot, Florida.

Micky also joined with David Cassidy and Peter Noone for the “Teen Idol” tour. Details then leaked in the early spring, and were later confirmed, that The Monkees would 

again reteam with Nesmith aboard in July 2013 for a summer tour with dates targeted for cities they did not travel to last time.

In 2014, Micky was profiled on the Oprah Winfrey OWN cable-network show Where Are They Now?, and delivered another bravura performance at B. B. King’s in Manhattan, 

New York. Already a creative and artistic success many times over, Dolenz decided to “go entrepreneur” and formed a fine-furniture company with his daughter, Georgia, 

called “Dolenz & Daughters” (www.DolenzandDaughters.com).

Micky has also appeared recently opposite Three Company’s TV veteran actress Joyce DeWitt in the play Comedy Is Hard, written by Emmy-award winning Simpsons writer 

Mike Reiss). The play was staged at the prestigious Ivoryton Playhouse in Connecticut.

In 2015, Dolenz announced a new series of Monkees live shows together with Peter Tork beginning in April—along with two high-profile solo charity appearances in April, 

One Starry Night and Jammin’ for Jones.

Micky debuted a new show, called A Little Bit Broadway, A Little Bit Rock ‘n Roll, which seamlessly combined several Broadway songs (“Mr. Cellophane” from Chicago; and, 

“One Of The Good Guys” from the play Closer Than Ever) to his patented-Monkee-classics, including Lieber-Stoller’s classic “D.W. Washburn” - the connective-tissue to his 

Monkees/Broadway history.

The reviews were across the board terrific: said The Hollywood Reporter, “Delivering exuberant versions of several classic Monkees hits interspersed with theatrical songs 

both familiar and relatively obscure, the still youthful 70-year-old singer performed with an obvious joy that proved infectious.”

And, from Show Biz 411, “Micky is such a perfectionist; he’s really rehearsed and the put the time in. It shows. This is no slapdash appearance by a former pop star. He’s 

a serious, engaging performer. When he was in the Monkees, no one believed that Micky actually sang and played instruments. He surprised everyone. And this weekend,

 he does it again. Big kudos!” The three shows were all sell-outs, resulting in a quick return engagement next month. The live album from the first set of shows will be 

released in late-September on Broadway Records.

The day before the concert album’s release, Micky appeared on NBC’sThe Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and sat in to play with Fallon’s house band The Roots for the 

entire show. In an on-camera interview with Fallon, Micky reminded the host that years earlier—when Fallon had opened for The Monkees—he had said to Micky, “If I ever

 host The Tonight Show, I’ll have you on.” Fallon was filled with lavish praise for Micky, and told him he still had the poster from that Monkees concert on his office wall—

still embraced as a magical moment for him.

In early February 2016, news was officially released via Rhino Records that The Monkees (Micky with Peter Tork) would begin a tour in May in conjunction with their 50th 

anniversary. Also, a new album to be titled "Good Times" would be released, which would include participation from fellow original-Monkees member Michael Nesmith.

Micky also attended 2016’s Grammy Awards, and posed for pictures alongside producer Nile Rodgers and Johnny Depp. Two days later, Dolenz was in a studio sitting next 

to Tom Petty, who had Micky as the first guest on his new Sirius/XM radio show “Tom Talks to Famous People.”

In 2018 and 2019, Dolenz toured with Nesmith as "The Mike and Micky Show" performing several unreleased or deep-cut Nesmith songs.

In late 2019, Dolenz toured with Todd Rundgren, Jason Scheff, Christopher Cross and Joey Nolland of Badfinger, in celebration of The Beatles White Album on the "It Was 

Fifty Years Ago Today - A Tribute to the Beatles "White Album" tour. Dolenz performed the Monkees' songs "I'm a Believer" and "Pleasant Valley Sunday".

Actor, singer, director, producer, writer, radio DJ, inventor, and all-around performer extraordinaire, Micky Dolenz stands tall as a paragon of taste and accomplishment in 

the rough-and-tumble world of show business and entertainment. And oh, by the way - he remains a believer . . .

Millie Perkins
Click to read the full biography.
Perkins grew up in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, and began her career as a model in New York City and by 1958 was an international cover girl. However, in 1958 she was vigorously pursued and then selected to appear in her first film, in the title role of The Diary of Anne Frank. .

Perkins had never studied nor sought to be an actress, but George Stevens saw her on the cover of several magazines and tried to convince her to read for the part. Finally, she flew to Hollywood for a screen test and with much fanfare, landed the role of Anne Frank in George Stevens' 1959 film "The Diary of Anne Frank." Millie Perkins received almost universally excellent reviews for her portrayal of Anne Frank. After her work with George Stevens, Perkins was under contract to Universal Studios and was given little choice in what movies or roles in which she could appear. She was cast in the 1961 Elvis Presley film Wild in the Country, in which she played the girlfriend of Presley's character. She was one of the bright young stars of Hollywood, but broke her contract with Universal because the studio system did not allow for any experimentation in roles. Subsequently, she worked with Jack Nicholson in several movies that he directed, taking a hiatus from film-making in the latter part of the 1960s to raise her children and teach acting in Jacksonville, Oregon. She returned to acting only years later when she was in her 40s. The studio contract system, which was coming to an end just as the young Millie Perkins was signed into it, did not fit well with this young star, who had come of age with the Beat Generation in 1950s New York City. As George Stevens said, Millie did not fit in. She was 10 years too early.

In 1983, Perkins returned to features to play Jon Voight's ex-wife in "Table for Five"; subsequently she was firmly type-cast in the mother role, playing Sean Penn's mother in the fact-based film At Close Range which starred Christopher Walken. She played the mother of Charlie Sheen's character in the 1987 movie Wall Street, and in John Grisham's The Chamber she played the bereft Jewish mother. She was also cast as Andy Garcia's mother in The Lost City (2005).

She has worked on a variety of television shows, including seven episodes of Knots Landing (over the period 1983-1990) and four episodes of Any Day Now (from 1998-2002).

He married her in 1990, after she divorced her first husband. Arnold wrote himself into the show as the character "Arnie Thomas" (a play on his name).

Airing after Roseanne on ABC, the show lasted only 18 episodes.

In 1993, Arnold and Barr bought a house together in Arnold's hometown of Eldon, Iowa and opened a restaurant, 'Roseanne and Tom's Big Food Diner' nearby. (The diner served loosemeat sandwiches similar to the specialty of the fictional Lanford Lunch Box on Roseanne, which in turn was based on the real-life Canteen Lunch in the Alley in Ottumwa.)

In Nov. 2000, Arnold played a role on Baywatch Hawaii Season 2 in episode 8 (The Cage).

In a late-1990s interview on radio's Howard Stern Show, Arnold admitted that his share of his and Barr's estate amounted to "over $20,000,000", including a percentage of the Roseanne ABC-TV series, but would not elaborate, citing a confidentiality clause.

Then known as Valerie Kairys, she was discovered by Michael McLean, Casting Director at 20th Century Fox Film and Television. Michael – who had recently worked with Director Richard Wise to cast The Sound of Music--discovered the seventeen year old Valerie at the reception desk of Ripps Opticians in Los Angeles, asking her, “Have you ever thought about being in the movies?

Her first appearances were in two 1964 films, "Your Cheatin Heart-The Hank Williams Story", directed by Gene Nelson and starring George Hamilton and Susan Oliver, followed by work on "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte", directed and produced by Robert Aldrich, and starring Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, Joseph Cotten, Agnes Moorehead and Mary Astor . Next came the 1966 release “Three on a Couch”, directed by and starring Jerry Lewis with Janet Leigh, Mary Ann Mobley and Leslie Parrish.

Starting with cameo roles, she quickly moved to guest star and co-star appearances. Valerie appears in a role created for her by writer Dave Evans in “Your Friendly Neighborhood Kidnappers,” directed by James Frawley. In “Monkees a la Mode,” Valerie co-stars as Toby Willis, in an episode written by Gerald Gardner and Dee Caruso, directed by Alex Singer.

"I was very young during the days of the Monkees, and Mike, Micky, Peter and Davy were my big brothers" Valerie says. "One day, they all drove to my apartment in the valley in the Monkeemobile to surprise me. They were so good to me, and to this day I love them-they remain what they always have been, my four big brothers".

Valerie concurrently appeared as a special guest in two episodes in ABC-TV’s classic series, Batman, in the role of “Kitty”, Catwoman’s hench-kitten. She appeared alongside Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar in the episodes, “The Sandman Cometh” and “The Catwoman Goeth” which originally aired in December 1966. “The Catwoman Goeth” featured a cameo appearance by a young James Brolin. The episodes were directed by George Waggner.

As The Monkees series was ending, director Richard Sarafian cast Valerie in 1968’s "Shadow on the Land", alongside Jackie Cooper, John Forsythe and Gene Hackman. The film is noteworthy as the very first network television Movie of the Week. She followed that up with work on 1969’s "Easy Rider" with Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda, Directed by Dennis Hopper; 1970’s Myra Breckinridge with Raquel Welch, Mae West, John Huston, John Carradine and a then unknown Farrah Fawcett, Directed by Michael Sarne; and 1971’s "Vanishing Point" with Barry Newman and Dean Jagger, once again directed by Richard Sarafian.

Valerie concurrently appeared as a special guest in two episodes in ABC-TV’s classic series, Batman, in the role of “Kitty”, Catwoman’s hench-kitten. She appeared alongside Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar in the episodes, “The Sandman Cometh” and “The Catwoman Goeth” which originally aired in December 1966. “The Catwoman Goeth” featured a cameo appearance by a young James Brolin. The episodes were directed by George Waggner.

Valerie took time away from acting, but kept the creative arts in the family when she married legendary record company executive Nick Venet. Nick's history includes a long stint as A & R Director at Capitol, where he signed the Beach Boys, and a similar position at United Artists Records. Nick produced Lou Rawls, Sam Cooke, Glen Campbell, Bobby Darin, The Beach Boys of course, and a host of others. Valerie met the gifted record producer at a session, and they were married in 1970. " Nick was incredibly smart and creative, and that was the type of person I was drawn to. There were always actors, musicians and artists from all walks of life in Topanga Canyon, where we made our home, so in many ways it was like I never left; I just wasn't on the set every day"

The exception to Valerie’s family break was 1979’s "Like Normal People", a film for television directed by Harvey Hart. Valerie appeared alongside Shaun Cassidy, Linda Purl and James Keach in a moving story about the developmentally disabled.

In recent years, Valerie has resumed her acting career, guest starring in 2013’s "Young Guns" directed by Haran Sivakumar; and 2015’s "The Dazzling Darling Sisters", directed by Brian E Bennett. She had a substantive role in 2016’s "Tourbillon", written and directed by Gene Ivery. Tourbillon was featured at the Aberdeen Film Festival, the Mosiac World Film festival, and Sci-Fi London. Val has some intense scenes with Chris Petrovski, a regular in the cast of CBS-TV's "Madame Secretary."

The year 2016 was the 50th anniversary of the Monkees, and the show was celebrated with a beautifully remastered DVD set. Valerie was delighted to be asked to participate in the commentary, with fresh and funny memories that illuminate the making of the ground breaking show. "It was great to see Mike, Micky and Peter as well" Valerie says. "They did a fantastic job on tour, but I never doubted that they would. There is just so much talent among them."

Valerie remains busy in 2017 with stage appearances at events talking about the Laurel Canyon music scene of the 60’s and early 70’s, which she was part of alongside The Monkees and her late husband, Nick.

an American actor. His career includes a leading role as Pete Cochran on the television crime drama The Mod Squad, which ran 1968 to 1973.

Cole has appeared in numerous films and TV shows, beginning in 1961 with a role in the film drama, Forbid Them Not. Other film credits include the role of Mark in the 1966 science fiction film, The Bubble, later re-titled Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth, as Alan Miller in The Last Child (1971), which was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, and as Cliff Norris in Beg, Borrow or Steal (1973). He did a great deal of stage work after The Mod Squad went off the air, such as Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.

Cole has also appeared on Gunsmoke, in 1966, as Kipp. During the '70s, he had many guest appearances on Wonder Woman, The Love Boat, CHiPs, and so forth. In the 1980s and 1990s, he worked on a piece for HBO called Nickel Mountain. He also worked on shows such as Murder, She Wrote, Fantasy Island, and Diagnosis Murder. Later, Cole appeared in Stephen King's two-part made-for-TV movie It, which aired in 1990, as the older version of the disturbed Henry Bowers. In 1991, he joined the cast of ABC's General Hospital in the role of Harlan Barrett.

But it was his role as Pete Cochran, a troubled youth turned crime fighter in The Mod Squad (1968–1973), that made Cole an international celebrity. Cole's boyish good looks and brooding, deep-voiced personality meshed perfectly with his character's backstory—a ne'er-do-well son of wealthy parents who had evicted him from their home after he had stolen a car. Produced by Aaron Spelling and Danny Thomas, The Mod Squad resonated with counterculture-era viewers and ran for five seasons, during which a total of 123 episodes were produced.

According to TVGuide.com, Cole originally balked at the part of Peter Cochran when he realized he would be playing an undercover cop, saying, "I'm not going to take the part of a guy who finks on his friends!" He changed his mind, however, when he read the script and gathered the show's potential appeal.

Cole is also known for an embarrassing incident in 1973 which was broadcast live on Australian television during the annual TV Week Logie awards. Stepping on stage to accept an award, Cole – described in subsequent news articles as either drunk or "in a tired and emotional state"– gave a barely coherent "thank you" speech that ended with the actor saying, "Oh, shit." This was the first time this profanity had been heard on Australian television.

Cole went through treatment in the Betty Ford Clinic in the early 1990s to bring a drinking problem into remission.

Cole continues to act in various film and television projects, and played the character Charles Hadley in a 2006 episode of the NBC television series ER. Cole most recently made an appearance in the 2007 thriller Mr. Brooks as the attorney for Demi Moore's character of Atwood.

Davidson made numerous appearances on the original Hollywood Squares, from the game show's 1966 premiere to its 1981 cancellation, and he was there known for his long-winded bluffs. None of the comparatively minor celebrities who were guests of producers Merrill Heatter and Robert "Bob" Quigley were more convincing at getting contestants to believe his (often ridiculous) answers to questions the program's "Square-Master," or host, entertainer Peter Marshall, posed. Most times, Marshall could barely conceal a grin as Davidson started in on some far-fetched but plausible explanations for his answers, often prefaced with something to the effect of: "I just read about it in the New England Journal of Medicine, it was a fascinating study, and it said that.... Davidson sold these preposterous stories with such sincerity that contestants were often duped more than once in the same show.

In 1985 he hosted the NBC daytime game show Time Machine.

Davidson worked with real estate promoter Dave Del Dotto’s paid programs during the late 1980s and early 1990s, which were notable for taking place in outdoor, scenic settings (such as Hawaii), and for having the actor as host. These "infomercials," as they have come to be called, often appeared on late night television and were a staple for years on many cable channels till the FCC filed a complaint against Del Dotto in 1995, alleging that in his paid programs, Del Dotto had "made false and unsubstantiated representations."

Davidson also hosted a revival of Hollywood Squares, whose announcer, Shadoe Stevens, in time also became a regular "square," which ran from 1986 to 1989. In addition, he hosted a 170-episode revival of The $100,000 Pyramid in 1991. Davidson also appeared as a featured guest on the Carpenters's television specials Space Encounters (1977) and Music!

Back in Hollywood, Wagner had a good support role in another hit, Harper (1966), starring Paul Newman In 1967, Lew Wasserman of Universal convinced Wagner to make his television series debut in It Takes a Thief (1968–70). While the success of The Pink Panther and Harper began Wagner's comeback, the successful two-and-a-half seasons of his first TV series completed it. In this series, he acted with Fred Astaire, who played his father. Wagner was a longtime friend of Astaire, having gone to school with Astaire's eldest son, Peter. Wagner's performance would earn him an Emmy nomination for Best TV Actor

During the making of the series he made a film for Universal, the comedy Don't Just Stand There! (1968) with Mary Tyler Moore. It was not a success. More popular was Winning (1969), a racing car drama where Wagner supported Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. He also guest starred in The Name of the Game (1970)

Wagner's friend and agent Albert Broccoli suggested that he audition to play James Bond, but he decided it was not right for him.

Wagner appeared in a pilot for a series that did not eventuate, City Beneath the Sea (1971). The following year he produced and cast himself opposite Bette Davis in the television movie Madame Sin, which was released in foreign markets as a feature film

He was a regular in the BBC/Universal World War II prisoner-of-war drama Colditz (1972–74) for much of its run. He reunited with McQueen, along with Paul Newman and Faye Dunaway, in the disaster film The Towering Inferno released in the same year. It was a massive hit.

By the mid-1970s, Wagner's television career was at its peak with the television series Switch (1975–78) opposite Eddie Albert, after re-signing a contract with Universal Studios in 1974. Before Switch, Albert was a childhood hero of Wagner, after he watched the movie Brother Rat along with a few others. The friendship started in the early 1960s, where he also co-starred in a couple of Albert's movies.

In partial payment for starring together in the Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg production of the TV movie The Affair, Wagner and Natalie Wood were given a share in three TV series that the producers were developing for ABC Only one reached the screen, the very successful TV series Charlie's Angels, for which Wagner and Wood had a 50% share.

Wagner and Wood acted with Laurence Olivier in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1976), as part of Olivier's television series Laurence Olivier Presents.

Wagner had a small role in some all-star Universal films, Midway (1976) and The Concorde ... Airport '79 (1979).

Wagner's third successful series was Hart to Hart, which co-starred Stefanie Powers and ran from 1979 to 1984. No one else was seriously considered for the role; George Hamilton had a high profile at the time and was suggested but producer Aaron Spelling said that if he was cast "the audience will resent him as Hart for being that rich. But no one will begrudge RJ [Wagner] a nickel.

During the series run Wagner reprised his old Pink Panther role in Curse of the Pink Panther (1983).

Wagner's film career received a boost after his role in the Austin Powers series of spy spoofs starring Mike Myers. Wagner played Dr. Evil's henchman Number 2 in all three films: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) and Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002).

He also had small roles in Wild Things (1998), Crazy in Alabama (1999)

Is an American actress best known for her role as Jennifer Hart in the 1980s television series Hart to Hart.

Powers appeared in several motion pictures in the early 1960s in secondary roles such as the thriller Experiment in Terror with Glenn Ford and Lee Remick, the comedy If a Man Answers with Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin, and as the daughter of John Wayne in the lighthearted comedy-Western McLintock! (1963). She played a schoolgirl in Tammy Tell Me True (1961) and the police chief's daughter Bunny in the romantic comedy Palm Springs Weekend (1963). She was also in the 1962 hospital melodrama The Interns and its sequel The New Interns in 1964. In 1965, Powers had a more substantial role playing opposite veteran actress Tallulah Bankhead in the Hammer horror film Die! Die! My Darling (originally released in England as Fanatic). Her early television work included Route 66 and Bonanza (both in 1963).

In 1966, her ""tempestuous"" good looks led to a starring role as April Dancer in the short-lived NBC television spy thriller series The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.. This was a spin-off of the popular The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. Powers' linguistic skills, dance training, and interest in bullfighting were written into several episodes of the series. She also learned how to fence for a five-minute fight sequence with sabers.

Shortly after the series' debut, she was featured on the cover of TV Guide (Dec. 31, 1966–Jan. 6, 1967). The article mentions her ""117-pound frame is kept supple with 11 minutes of Royal Canadian Air Force exercises every morning."" It also noted: ""Unlike her fellow U.N.C.L.E. agents, the ladylike April is not required to kill the bad guys. Her feminine charms serve as the bait, while her partner Noel Harrison provides the fireworks."" Dancer was written as a demure, passive figure instead of an action heroine like The Avengers' Emma Peel. e on self-parody and camp humor instead of dramatic action and suspense was not a success. The series lasted for only one season (29 one-hour episodes) airing from September 16, 1966 to April 11, 1967.

In 1967, she was in the film Warning Shot with David Janssen. Her 1970s began with two Disney films, The Boatniks (1970) and Herbie Rides Again (sequel to The Love Bug).

She was a guest star on the Robert Wagner series It Takes a Thief in 1970. The two would go on to co-star in the popular Hart to Hart series nine years later.

Prior to the Hart to Hart success, she starred in The Feather and Father Gang as Toni ""Feather"" Danton, a successful lawyer. Her father, Harry Danton, was a smooth-talking ex-con man played by Harold Gould. It ran for 13 episodes. Guest roles on other popular TV shows include: McCloud (1971), The Mod Squad (1972), Kung Fu (1974), The Rockford Files (1975), The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman (1976), and McMillan & Wife (1977). These shows were the ones that Powers appeared, long after she signed a contract with Universal Studios in 1970, coincidentally, her longtime friend and Hart to Hart series' star, Wagner, signed up a contract with Universal, but did not guest-star on more shows than Powers did.

Her role as stripper Dottie Del Mar in 1979's Escape to Athena with Roger Moore turned out to be Powers' last theatrical film to date.

She became widely known as a television star for her role opposite old friend Wagner as a pair of amateur sleuths in the 1979-1984 series Hart to Hart for which she received two Emmy and five Golden Globe Award Best Television Actress nominations. In the 1990s she and Wagner reunited to make eight Hart to Hart made-for-TV two-hour movies.
