Remembering Robin Williams and Jeffrey Hunter: Next on TVC
August 26th, 2014
Television writer/producer David Misch and authors Paul Green and Mary Ann Anderson will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio. Click on the Listen Live button atKSAV.org or hear us on the KSAV channel on CX Radio Brazil.
Our first hour will remember the life and legacy of Robin Williams, the Academy Award-winning actor who originally became a star as a result of ABC television series Mork & Mindy. Our guests will include television writer/producer David Misch (Police Squad!, Late Night with David Letterman, Duckman, Saturday Night Live,Funny: The Book). David began his career in television as a story editor on Mork & Mindy.
Paul Green will join us in our second hour for a look back at the life and career of Jeffrey Hunter, the actor best known for his starring roles as Martin Pawley in The Searchers, Christopher Pike in the original pilot episode of Star Trek, and Jesus Christ in Nicholas Ray’s King of Kings. Hunter’s sudden death in May 1969 was a shock to everyone who knew him and left many wondering what direction his life and career would have gone, had he lived. Some of those questions are answered in Paul’s latest book, Jeffrey Hunter: The Film, Television, Radio and Stage Performances, which we’ll discuss in our second hour.
Also joining us in our second hour will be author Mary Ann Anderson (Ida Lupino: Beyond the Camera, The Making of The Hitch-Hiker Illustrated). Mary also knew Jeffrey Hunter; her mother, actress Emily McLaughlin, married Hunter just three months before he died.
