Literary Detectives and America’s Top Sleuths: This week on TV Confidential

In case you missed it, last week’s edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL is now available on the archives page at Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org, as well as our own website, www.tvconfidential.net. The program features an encore segments from October 2006 in which we discuss the Top 25 film and TV detectives, as chosen by viewers of The Sleuth Channel, plus a conversation from May 2006 about “literary detectives”—TV shows like Ellery Queen and Spenser: For Hire that were based on best-selling mystery novels, as well as shows like Rockford Files and Harry O that have literary elements to them..

Speaking of Rockford, Gigi Garner, daughter of James Garner, will joins us to discuss her new book, Girl Talk. Plus we have some of our regular features, including reviews two new DVD releases: Season Two of Adam-12 and the long awaited release of The Donna Reed Show. It’s a lively mix of old and new, and we’ll certainly hope you’ll join us

Batman, A to Z

With The Dark Knight setting all kinds of box office records this weekend, I thought I’d post a link to “Batman, A to Z,” a brief look at the five actors who have played Batman for the big screen, which I wrote last week as a Spotlight feature for The Wave Magazine.

Author Michael Seth Starr: This week on Share-a-Vision Radio

The life and career of Raymond Burr will be the subject of the next edition of Talking Television with Dave White, this Tuesday, July 10, beginning at 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org. Whether you knew him as Perry Mason, Robert Ironside or the many movie villains he played (including Lars Thorwald in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window), Raymond Burr was a powerful presence on television for over 40 years. But offscreen, he was something of an enigma. We’ll unwrap the mystery that was Burr with our guest Michael Seth Starr, author of “Hiding in Plain Sight: The Secret Life of Raymond Burr,” a compassionate look at the life and career of this TV icon. If you’re a fan of Raymond Burr, if you grew up watching Perry Mason and/or Ironside, we invite you to join guest hosts Ed Robertson and Frankie Montiforte beginning at 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT on KSAV.org. What’s your favorite Raymond Burr movie role or TV series? Let us know and tell us why. Phone number is (800) 407-KSAV (5728), email address is talk@ksav.org or ed@talkingtelevision.org.

Tribute to Barry Morse: TODAY on Share-a-Vision Radio

Talking Television with Dave White celebrates the life and career of Barry Morse on a special live edition airing today, Sunday, April 27, beginning at 2pm ET, 11am PT on the Share-a-Vision Radio Select Channel. I will co-host the program, along with Dave White; our guests will include stage and TV actress Jacqueline Scott, Barry’s co-star on The Fugitive; veteran DGA member Bob Rubin, who worked with Barry on The Fugitive, The Invaders and other shows for QM Productions; Anthony Wynn and Robert Wood, who collaborated with Barry on many projects, including his memoir, Remember with Advantages, and the 2007 radio production Rogues and Vagabonds; and Barry’s son, actor/director Hayward Morse, who co-starred with his father in such productions as Bernard and Bosie, the acclaimed play based on the unlikely friendship between playwright George Bernard Shaw and poet Lord Alfred “Bosie” Douglas.


Though best known to American audiences for his roles on The Fugitive and Space: 1999, Barry was an incredibly versatile performer whose vast body of work covered everything from Shakespeare and Shaw to Gore Vidal and A.R. Gurney, to his own critically acclaimed one-man show, Merely Players. If you’ve enjoyed his work in stage, film and television, we invite you to join our conversation by logging on to the special KSAV Select Channel stream, located at http://stream.ksav.org5555/live, beginning at
2pm ET, 11am PT. Listeners in the United States can phone in by calling (800) 407-KSAV (5728). Listeners from any part of the world can email us at talk@ksav.org.
