    Well, one of the quirkier things I noted, when I was out in public with Lee, at those video stores or at a restaurant, is that strange women would spot him, and come running over to him and hug him! He took it in stride, like it was an every day occurrence, and was very friendly to them. Apparently, he was in a soap-opera for many years, and accumulated quite a large female fanbase. It just struck me as so weird and funny, to see these strange middle-aged women just suddenly see him and then excitedly run up and immediately hug him, there in public. Eh, didn't really encounter such doings back in Texas.

    That was about thirty years ago now. Vintage film buff that I was, I'd gone out to California with the notion of working in film restoration. Not as a career, but just something to do for a couple of years, because of my love of old movies. Never quite succeeded in getting into that niche (not nearly as much was being done back then, compared to these days), but I did many odd jobs, often dealing with festivals and film events, and the procuring of old-time movie folk as guests. Got to meet a lot of old-timers, going back to silent-era film veterans. Fun times.

    Bert, once again wow! The only WB TV star I ever talked with was Peter Brown from Lawman. Just a brief but pleasant interaction with him. I should have gotten his autograph. I also met the great James Garner and shook his hand one morning after breakfast in a restaurant, but didn't dare to interrupt him at his table, of course. Just seeing him in person was a thrill. He was in Alberta Canada to film a movie with his friend Stuart Margolin ("Angel" from Rockford Files, of course), but the project fell through and cashed in for a completion bond and tax writeoff...too bad, as a friend of mine who worked on the movie showed me the script and it was very funny indeed...a WW2 comedy adventure called Pure Escape...this was just 2 years after James Garner wrapped up his phenomenal classic series The Rockford Files...

    So you met the lovely Diane McBain and got her autograph? Nice! Here's a Surfside 6 publicity photo of Diane with Van Williams...

    Here's another one...Van Williams seems to be admiring himself, ha, ha...

    We got to see "ALL" of Connie Stevens in Scorchy. Almost as much as in the European cut of "The sex Symbol"

    I do have the complete Route 66. I enjoy the work of Sterling Silliphant and he is a major 66 writer. We agree, Maverick is my favorite as well but The Dakotas is a memorable effort and well worth seeking out.

    I wish I knew how to do that but if we are all on the same page here, believe me it is worth seeking out.

    Sorry to say that I don't have Scorchy or The Sex Symbol in my grindhouse collection...an oversight on my part, as I particularly like the former, but can't say that I've ever seen the latter film...a Google search does reveal some pertinent images that may, (or may not) challenge community standards here among the more delicate and mild mannered of our small, but noble, band of brothers...we happy few...

    Connie (Cricket) is mildly appalled at all of the lascivious yearnings as evidenced here for more revealing photos of her lovely and lithesome self...but she appears to also be somewhat titillated at all the hot and fevered attention...nonetheless, she has called upon the Hilton's house detective to comfort her...just in case one of you horndogs makes a move...she's seen them all...

    It appears that one of you with low self control has indeed made his move...and the "cleaning crew" has arrived to tidy things up...Cricket is mildly upset, but being a trooper, still makes showtime in the Tiki room, er, Shell room...

    I hope that one of Bob's stories about Garry Lockwood explains this disturbing scenario with guest star Tuesday Weld on the set of Follow the Sun...Gary's lucky that none of the Marine brass at El Toro ever saw this while he served as The Lieutenant...Lt. William Tiberius Rice would have been fast tracked for a dishonorable discharge, ha, ha...

    I just found this great 1961 postcard featuring a spectacular aerial view of the Surfside 6 houseboat moored on the intercoastal waterway opposite the imposing landmark of the Fountainbleau hotel...
