Stanley Livingston, plus Lee Marvin: Point Blank: Next on TVC

Monday, June 29th, 2020

Please join us this holiday weekend for encore presentations of our conversations with actor, director, and producer Stanley Livingston (My Three Sons, The Actors Journey) and author Dwayne Epstein (Lee Marvin: Point Blank). All this on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, airing Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,

This week’s program will include an encore presentation of our December 2014 conversation with actor, producer, and director Stanley Livingston. Known around the world as Chip Douglas on My Three Sons (ABC/CBS, 1960-1972), the long-running family sitcom that currently airs weekday mornings on MeTV, Stan is also the founder and CEO of The Actors Journey Project, a teaching program for both aspiring actors and working actors that helps fill a crucial gap in an actor’s education. While many colleges, universities and acting academies teach the craft of acting, very few programs teach students about the business of acting—specifically, how to navigate the inner workings of the entertainment industry so that you can launch, advance and, most important, sustain a career in acting in the film and television industries.

The Actors Journey Project has two programs: The Actors Journey (for adult actors) and The Actors Journey for Kids (for parents of aspiring child actors). Both programs cover more than sixty topics and pool the wisdom of more than 100 entertainment industry professionals. We’ll ask Stan how he came to start The Actors Journey, as well as talk about his work with the likes of Ozzie Nelson, Jackie Cooper and, of course, Fred McMurray when he joins us in our second hour.

Also this week: We’ll replay our conversation from July 2014 about the life and career of Lee Marvin, the Academy Award-winning film actor who became a household name partly as a result of television (and, particularly, M Squad, the nourish crime drama from the late 1950s that later served as the inspiration for Police Squad!).

Someone once said that the depth of Lee Marvin “never really came out until you saw him on the screen. You knew there had to be something inside him that could create images that he wanted to convey to you.” Though Marvin remained somewhat enigmatic until the day he died, author Dwayne Epstein explores the depth of Marvin the person in Lee Marvin: Point Blank, an excellent biography that reveals the persona of the hard-drinking man who lived life on his own terms. Dwayne Epstein will join us in our first hour.
