James T. West and “The Hippest Guy on the Planet”: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Friday, October 30th, 2009

Join us as we remember two of the biggest icons of the 1960s, legendary screenwriter Terry Southern (Easy Rider, Dr. Strangelove, The Cincinnati Kid, Barbarella) and the classic sci-fi Western series The Wild, Wild West, on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 11pm ET, 8pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Our scheduled guests include dancer/actress Gail Gerber, co-star of many films from the 1960s, including Beach Ball, Girl Happy, Harem Scarum, the cult classic Village of the Giants and the scathing satire on the funeral industry, The Loved One. It was on the set of The Loved One that Gail first met Terry Southern, the iconic novelist and screenwriter whose Oscar-winning 1969 screen play for Easy Rider was about to turn the film industry on its head. Gail’s new book, Trippin’ with Terry Southern: What I Think I Remember, is a poignant look at her 30-year relationship with Southern, a bona fide celebrity who was equally at home in the worlds of art, literature and film, yet often struggled to make ends meet despite his enormous fame. Gail and her co-author, film and TV historian Tom Lisanti, will join us in our first hour.

Then in our second hour we’ll welcome Susan Kessler, author of The Wild, Wild West Book, a behind-the-scenes look at the iconoclastic television Western starring Robert Conrad and Ross Martin as intrepid Secret Service agents Jim West and Artemus Gordon, and Michael Dunn as their nemesis, Dr. Miguelito Loveless. Recently updated with an arsenal of new information about the 1965-1969 CBS-TV series since its original 1988 publication, The Wild, Wild West Book is not only one of the best, most comprehensive television histories ever written, it’s also a lot of fun.
