Interview with Paul Green, author of PETE DUEL: A BIOGRAPHY, now available on Share-a-Vision Radio

Most of us think of Pete Duel as Hannibal Heyes, the amiable outlaw that he played so well on the short-lived but long-remembered television Western series, Alias Smith and Jones (ABC, 1971-1973). That, of course, was the image we saw on screen. Off screen, Pete Duel was a complex man who led an unpredictable and often tumultuous life—a fact best characterized by his highly publicized suicide on Dec. 31, 1971, at the height of his television celebrity.The story of Pete Duel is one of the great

Hollywood tragedies… but it’s also a reminder that the true value of a person rests not in the manner of their death, but in the way they lived their life and continue to touch the lives of the people of who knew them. That’s really the focus of Pete Duel: A Biography, a fascinating new book by Paul Green that Frankie and I talked about last week on TV Confidential.In case you missed it, our interview with Paul is now available on our archives page at www.tvconfidential.net. The program also features film and television actress Kim Darby, who not only co-starred with Pete Duel in the film Generation but was among the actor’s closest friends.
