Doug McClure Original Art For Sale

Allen D. Hiott recently contacted me with the following information:

Dougart1Doug McClure singed an original water color of himself on horseback with the Mesa Verde Mountains in the background and gave to my dad Ben Young who was friends with Doug. My dad did some construction work on Doug’s home in California back in 1991 which is the date he signed and gave to my dad on the back of the painting. My dad was also a small time actor back then and he became friends with Doug and his wife Diane. I can only assume that this water color was a gift between friends at that time. The front of the painting also has his signature dated 1988. I would love for someone that is a collector in the western art world to possibly buy it. dougartback

My dad passed away in 2010 and I required the painting at that point in time.

If anyone is interested in purchasing this original art from Allen please e-mail him at Allen.D.Hiott@Williams.com

TV Confidential Radio Interview : Paul Green and Ed Robertson discuss Roy Huggins

978-0-7864-7671-8TV Confidential – Paul Green discussing Roy Huggins with host Ed Robertson. April 2-7

“Paul’s latest book, Roy Huggins: Creator of Maverick, 77 Sunset Strip, The Fugitive and…, is an intimate portrait of the Emmy Award-winning writer/producer that includes in-depth interviews with many members of Huggins’ personal and professional family, including actress Katherine Crawford (Roy’s daughter), film and television executive Frank Price (Roy’s colleague on The Virginian and, later, his son-in-law), actress Stepfanie Kramer (Hunter), and Roy’s longtime right-hand man at Universal Television, Jo Swerling Jr. Paul was also granted access to Roy’s personal papers and unpublished memoirs, giving the book direct insight into Huggins’ formative years and early career at RKO, Columbia Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. Television.

Roy Huggins: Creator of Maverick, 77 Sunset Strip, The Fugitive and… also includes one of the last interviews given by Juanita Bartlett, the Emmy-nominated writer-producer who passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 25. Bartlett collaborated on many occasions with both Roy Huggins and James Garner, most notably on The Rockford Files. With that in mind, we will replay our August 2012 conversation with Juanita as part of our first hour.”

“Barbary Coast” starring Doug McClure being released as a 4-disc set this June

285185RLJ Entertainment are preparing a June 3rd release of Barbary Coast on DVD! This 4-disc set with English subtitles will be priced at $59.99 SRP. The short-lived series from 1975 had 14 episodes, which included appearances by Michael Ansara, Lynda Day George, John Vernon, Bill Bixby, Pat Hingle, Lance LeGault, James Cromwell, Marcy Lafferty (Shatner’s wife at the time), Joan Van Ark, William Daniels, Francine York, Martin E. Brooks, Joseph Campanella, Tige Andrews, Severn Darden, Gretchen Corbett, Bernard Fox, John Dehner, and Judy Strangis. Package art isn’t available yet, but here’s the studio description of the title:

Golden Globe winner William Shatner (Star Trek, Boston Legal) is Jeff Cable, an undercover agent patrolling the wild streets of 1880s San Francisco. Filled with casinos and saloons, this bustling slice of post-Gold Rush California runs on corruption, greed, and violence. And it’s Agent Cable’s job to crack down on the numerous criminals who have made a home there. Even top public officials can’t be trusted, so Cable weaves elaborate ruses to uncover the Barbary Coast’s many plots.

He also relies on the slick but beleaguered Cash Conover (Doug McClure, The Virginian), proprietor of the Golden Gate Casino. Conover reluctantly puts his business and well-being on the line for Cable time and again. The charismatic pair often find the cards stacked against them, but that doesn’t stop them from having a rollicking good time as they police a town mired in vigilante justice. Also starring Richard Kiel (The Spy Who Loved Me), this Emmy-nominated series is a playful take on traditional Westerns with a terrific cast.
