BOOKs

$32.00 – Bad at the Bijou by William R. Horner - 39 photos, filmography, index, 176pp. (6 x 9) [1982] This book is about a group of actors who bring drama to the big screen the way the fair haired hero never could. The granddaddies of Darth Vadar and J.R. Ewing—villains of the Westerns. Witty interviews with ten Hollywood heavies—Lee Van Cleef, Jack Elam, Strother Martin, others—about their backgrounds, and feelings about themselves, their families, and playing bad guys. Horner asks the right questions, pulls out good answers and shows a fondness for controversial and sensitive issues. Two sections contain 43 photos of these familiar grisly characters in well known roles. All in all a splendid portrayal of a bunch of fine fellows who make a living convincing audiences they are despicable, degenerate and mean. A thorough filmography and a solid index are included. About the Author: William R. Horner, born in Nashville and a graduate of Vanderbilt University, was stationed in the Netherlands with the U.S. Army in 1972-1973. He works for the U.S. Postal Service and lives in Mount Juliet, Tennessee.

$39.95 – Circle the Wagons! - Attacks on Wagon Trains in History and Hollywood Films by Gregory F. Michno and Susan J. Michno - 65 photos, appendices, notes, bibliography, index, 246pp.  (7 x 10) 2009 -  It’s a cinematic image as familiar as John Wayne’s face: a wagon train circling as a defensive maneuver against Indian attacks. This book examines actual and fictional wagon-train battles and compares them for realism. It also describes how fledgling Hollywood portrayed the concept of westward migration but, as the evolving industry became more accurate in historical detail, how filmmakers then lost sight of the big picture. About the Authors: Historian Gregory F. Michno is the author of numerous books about such topics as the American West and World War II. He lives in Frederick, Colorado. Susan J. Michno has written articles on the Spirit Lake Massacre and the Box Family of Texas. She lives in Frederick, Colorado. I believe they are related.

 

 

$45.00 – The Creation of the Cowboy Hero: Fiction, Film and Fact by Jeremy Agnew - 51 photos, notes, bibliography, index, 244pp. (7 x 10) 2015  As business interests have commercialized the American West and publishers and studios have created compelling imagery, the expectations of readers and moviegoers have influenced perceptions of the cowboy as a hero. This book describes the evolution of the cowboy hero as a mythic persona created by dime novels, television and Hollywood. Much of our concept of the cowboy comes to us from movies and the book’s main focus is his changing image in cinema. The development of the hero image and the fictional West is traced from early novels and films to the present, along with shifting audience expectations and economic pressures. About the Author: Jeremy Agnew, a consultant in biomedical electronics, has written several books on the Old West. He lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Other Books by Jeremy Agnew published by McFarland and also available from Westerns And Serials Fan Club are: Medicine in the Old West$35.00, Entertainment in the Old West $35.00, The Old West in Fact and Film $40.00, Alcohol and Opium in the Old West $40.00,and Spanish Influence on the Old Southwest $39.95.

 

 

 

 

 

$75.00 – Encyclopedia of American Film Serials by Geoff Mayer - From their heyday in the 1910s to their lingering demise in the 1950s, American film serials delivered excitement in weekly installments for millions of moviegoers, despite minuscule budgets, nearly impossible shooting schedules and the disdain of critics. Early heroines like Pearl White, Helen Holmes and Ruth Roland broke gender barriers and ruled the screen. Through both world wars, such serials as Spy Smasher and Batman were vehicles for propaganda. Smash hits like Flash Gordon and The Lone Ranger demonstrated the enduring mass appeal of the genre. Providing insight into early 20th century American culture, this book analyzes four decades of productions from Pathé, Universal, Mascot and Columbia, and all 66 Republic serials.

$39.95 – A Fistful of Icons: Essays on Frontier Fixtures of the American Western - Edited by Sue Matheson - 10 photos, notes, bibliography, filmography, index, softcover (6 x 9) Not Yet Published, Available Summer 2017 - After a century of reinvention and reinterpretation, Western movies continue to contribute to the cultural understanding of the United States. Western archetypes remain important emblems of the American experience, relating a complex and coded narrative about heroism and morality, masculinity and femininity, westward expansion and technological progress, and assimilation and settlement. In this collection of new essays, 21 contributors from around the globe examine the “cowboy cool” iconography of film and television Westerns—from bounty hunters in buckskin jackets to the seedy saloons and lonely deserts. About the Author: Sue Matheson is an associate professor of English at the University College of the North in The Pas, Manitoba, Canada.

 

$49.95 – Hollywood Stunt Performers, 1910s–1970s: A Biographical Dictionary by Gene Scott Freese - 98 photos, filmographies, index, 356pp. (7 x 10) 2014 This biographical dictionary shines the spotlight on several hundred unheralded stunt performers who created some of the cinema’s greatest action scenes without credit or recognition. The time period covered encompasses the silent comedy days of Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd, the early westerns of Tom Mix and John Wayne, the swashbucklers of Douglas Fairbanks, Errol Flynn, and Burt Lancaster, the costume epics of Charlton Heston and Kirk Douglas, and the action films of Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, and Charles Bronson. Without stuntmen and women working behind the scenes the films of these action superstars would not have been as successful. Now fantastic athletes and leading stunt creators such as Yakima Canutt, Richard Talmadge, Harvey Parry, Allen Pomeroy, Dave Sharpe, Jock Mahoney, Chuck Roberson, Polly Burson, Bob Morgan, Loren Janes, Dean Smith, Hal Needham, Martha Crawford, Ronnie Rondell, Terry Leonard, and Bob Minor are given their proper due. Each entry covers the performer’s athletic background, military service, actors doubled, noteworthy stunts, and a rundown of his or her best known screen credits. About the Author: Gene Scott Freese is a screenwriter living in Chandler, Arizona. He has written books on TV cowboy Jock Mahoney, character actor Richard Jaeckel, and Hollywood stunt performers from cinema’s Golden Age. Source: McFarland

$35.95 – Hopalong Cassidy: On the Page, on the Screen (2016) by Francis M. Nevins / Packy Smith - Publisher: Createspace Independent Pub. - Clarence E. Mulford spent his creative years, writing a vast saga of interlocking novels and stories, most of them dealing with the Bar-20 ranch and the men who called it home, chief among them a certain Hopalong Cassidy. Eventually Mulford's works became the nominal source of 66 Hollywood films, made between 1935 and 1948, and a 52-episode TV series (1952-54), all starring William Boyd as a character with the same name but very different from Mulford's.Hopalong Cassidy: On the Page, On the Screen covers each of Mulford's books and each of the Cassidy theatrical films in full detail. A comprehensive index enables readers interested in almost anyone or anything linked to the books or films-including eventual stars like Robert Mitchum, George Reeves, Jan Clayton and Barbara Britton—to find the relevant material instantly.It began in the waking dreams of a young civil servant in Brooklyn who spent evenings, weekends and vacations putting into words an old West he had imagined but never seen. Story by story, novel by novel he created a vast canvas centering around a Texas ranch he called the Bar-20 and the men who made it the focus of their loyalty, chief among them a red-headed liquor-swilling young puncher with a noticeable limp, Hopalong Cassidy. Clarence E. Mulford (1883-1956) was one of the most remarkable Western writers America has produced. His fictional universe is an immense saga, written over a third of a century, in which Cassidy and the other main characters go adventuring, fall in love, marry and have children, grow old and eventually take part in the adventures of the next generation. Mulford's life and world are explored in detail in the first several chapters of this book. In 1935, the now prosperous author signed the contracts that brought his world and characters to America's movie theaters-or at least so he hoped. But, except for a handful of character and place names, the 66 Hopalong Cassidy movies, made between 1935 and 1948, starring William Boyd as Cassidy, turned out to have almost nothing in common with Mulford's fiction. Those films captivated audiences on their first release. The finest of them were hailed by Western lovers as classics of the genre and, restored for satellite and DVD, continue to excite viewers today. This book covers all 66 Cassidy movies in depth. The final chapter recounts what happened in the late 1940s and early 1950s when Hoppymania swept the country as the films migrated to the infant medium of television, generating new celebrity and a huge fortune for William Boyd and quite a bit of money for Mulford too. With a comprehensive checklist of Mulford's writings and a complete filmography providing cast and credits for every Cassidy movie and every episode of the later TV series, Hopalong Cassidy: On the Page, On the Screen is the definitive book on a fascinating subject.  Description: 534 p. : 10.00 H x 1.21 D x 7.00 W inches

$19.95 – Lest We Forget: The John Ford Stock Company  (2013) by Bill Levy -  John Ford (1894-1973) directed scores of memorable movies that feature countless scenes that linger in one's memory. He is the only director to have won four Best Director Academy Awards, for The Informer (1935), The Grapes of Wrath (1940), How Green Was My Valley (1941), and The Quiet Man (1952). There have been manybiographies and film studies of John Ford and his motion pictures. There has never been a single volume devoted to the stock company of actors and actresses who worked for him, some continually, many intermittently, from his silent westerns of the 'teens to his final films of the 1960s. This book spotlights 112 members of Ford's fluid repertory company and includes a mini-chapter on each member of the troupe. And it was a diverse group. One wrote three books on the Baha'i Faith religion; another boxed the heavyweight champion of the world to a draw; one eloped with Loretta Young when she was seventeen; one participated in the Yukon gold rush; a photograph of one player's ear is the clublogo for a professional wrestling association; another taught Lucy how to jitterbug; one was a legendary undercover agent for the OSS in France during World War II; another was a member of the advisory board to the Bank of America concerning loans to the studios; two were rodeo world champions. All of them, from obscure bit players to barely-remembered character actors to legendary film stars, made substantial contributions to Ford's movie legacy. Bill Levy is the author of John Ford: A Bio-Bibliography and Beyond the Beach: The Wit and Wisdom of Nevil Shute. He has been writing his "Forgotten Gems" column on films of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s for New Jersey's monthly senior publication, Fifty Plus, since 2001. He lives in Mendham, New Jersey.

$29.95 – The New Western - Critical Essays on the Genre Since 9/11 - Edited by Scott F. Stoddart  - 6 photos, notes, bibliographies, index, 268pp. softcover (6 x 9) 2016 - American moviegoers have long turned to the Hollywood Western for reassurance in times of crisis. During the genre’s heyday, the films of John Ford, Howard Hawks and Henry Hathaway reflected a grand patriotism that resonated with audiences at the end of World War II. The tried-and-true Western was questioned by Ford and George Stevens during the Cold War, and in the 1960s directors like Sam Peckinpah and George Roy Hill retooled the genre as a commentary on American ethics during the Vietnam War. Between the mid–1970s and early 1990s, the Western faded from view—until the Gulf War, when Kevin Costner’s Dances with Wolves (1990) and Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven (1992) brought it back, with moral complexities. Since 9/11, the Western has seen a resurgence, blending its patriotic narrative with criticism of America’s place in the global community. Exploring such films as True Grit (2010) and Brokeback Mountain (2005), along with television series like Deadwood and Firefly, this collection of new essays explores how the Western today captures the dichotomy of our times and remains important to the American psyche. About the Author: Scott F. Stoddart is an associate professor of English at John Jay College, CUNY, in New York City, where he teaches courses in American literature, cinema studies, and musical theatre history. He has written broadly about popular culture, literature and the arts on such topics as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Stephen Sondheim and the Coen brothers. He is also a host of the Sundance television series Love/Lust and a contributing correspondent to the PBS series American Icons.

$45.00 – Poverty Row Studios, 1929–1940: An Illustrated History of 55 Independent Film Companies, with a Filmography for Each by Michael R. Pitts - 98 photos, index, 542pp.,  (6 x 9) [1997] From the beginning of the sound era until the end of the 1930s, independent movie-making thrived. Many of the independent studios were headquartered in a section of Hollywood called "Poverty Row." Here the independents made movies on the cheap, usually at rented facilities where shooting was limited to only a few days. From Allied Pictures Corporation to Willis Kent Production, 55 Poverty Row Studios are given histories in this book. Some of the studios, such as Diversion Pictures and Cresent Pictures, came into existence for the sole purpose of releasing movies by established stars. Others, for example J.D. Kendis, were early exploitation filmmakers under the guise of sex education. The histories include critical commentary on the studio’s output and a filmography of all titles released from 1929 through 1940. About the Author: Michael R. Pitts has authored or coauthored several dozen books on entertainment. He lives in Chesterfield, Indiana.

 

 

$35.00 – The Psychology of the Western: How the American Psyche Plays Out on Screen by William Indick  - 13 photos, filmography, bibliography, index, 223pp. softcover (6 x 9) 2008 - Western films are often considered sprawling reflections of the American spirit. This book analyzes the archetypes, themes, and figures within the mythology of the western frontier. Western themes are interpreted as expressions of cultural needs that perform specific psychological functions for the audience. Chapters are devoted to the frontier hero character, the roles of women and Native Americans, and the work of the genre’s most prolific directors, Anthony Mann and John Ford. The book includes a filmography and movie stills. About the Author: William Indick is Professor of Psychology at Dowling College in Oakdale, New York. He is the author of several books on media psychology, and has written for numerous psychology journals. He lives in Islip, New York.

$29.95 – Savages and Saints: The Changing Image of American Indians in Westerns by Bob Herzberg - 84 photos, bibliography, index, 318pp. (7 x 10) McFarland[2008] The history of American Indians on screen can be compared to a light shining through a prism. We may have seen bits and pieces of the genuine culture portrayed, but rarely did we see a satisfying and informative whole picture. Savages and Saints deals with the changing image of the American Indian in the Western film genre, contrasting the fictionalized images of native Americans portrayed in classic films against the historical reality of life on the American frontier. The book tells the stories of frontier warriors, Indian and white, revealing how their stories were often drastically altered on screen according to the times the films were made, the stars involved in the film’s production, and the social/political beliefs of the filmmakers. Studio correspondence, letters from government files, and passages from western novels adapted for the screen are used to illustrate the various points. About the Author: Writer, actor and comedian Bob Herzberg is the author of scholarly books and western novels. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

 

 

 

$35.00 – The Spaghetti Western - A Thematic Analysis by Bert Fridlund - 30 photos, tables, appendices,notes, bibliography, index, 304pp. (6 x 9) 2006 McFarland - The 1960s and 1970s were the heyday of spaghetti westerns—low-budget films about the early American West mostly filmed in Italy. Though sometimes derided as excessively violent imitations of American-made westerns, they attracted a substantial following that has endured. With its classic elements of gunfights, gambling, heroes, sidekicks, love, and death, the genre is now perceived by critics as an intriguing object of study. This book analyzes the construction of the stories presented in spaghetti westerns. It examines the content of the Italian western using concepts and constructs borrowed from scholars studying “pre-industrial” narratives. Plot, the constellation of characters, their relationship to each other, and their motives are studied. Films examined in detail include the seminal A Fistful of Dollars as well as Django, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. There is also a discussion of the early spaghetti westerns. The study then probes the elements of bounty hunters, the deprived hero, partnerships, betrayal, and comedy. An appendix details the top grossing Italian westerns between 1964 and 1975, including title, director, lead actor and intake. A second appendix provides a list of films quoted by Italian title and then by English title. About the Author: System analyst Bert Fridlund lives in Uppsala, Sweden. His essays on popular cinema and popular culture have been published in Swedish journals and anthologies.

$29.95 – Tarzan, Jungle King of Popular Culture by David Lemmo  -  65 photos, notes, bibliography, index, 236pp (6 x 9) 2017, McFarland - From his first appearance in 1912, Tarzan became a multimedia franchise whose cultural influence extended well beyond mere entertainment. The original 20th century superhero, the Lord of the Apes was the inspiration behind such early archetypes as The Shadow and Doc Savage, themselves the basis for heroes like Batman and Superman. Long before Comic-Cons and Trekkies, the first Tarzan fan club was formed in America in 1916, pioneering the fandom movement that pervades modern pop culture. This book examines Tarzan in his various media representations—hunter, warrior, secret agent, fighter of communists and Nazis—and in his numerous story arcs, including crossover adventures featuring historical characters like Arthur Conan Doyle and Nikola Tesla. About the Author: David Lemmo is a veteran of three decades in the antiquarian books business. Some of his specialties included Edgar Rice Burroughs, pop culture, and comic books. In 2011, he helped create the North Coast Mangani, a chapter of the Burroughs Bibliophiles. He lives in Paradise, California.

The greatest films from 1914, when The Squaw Man and The Virginian were among the genre’s best, through 2001, when American Outlaws and Texas Rangers were tops, are the subject of this work. For each year, the author names the outstanding western films in the following categories: picture, screenplay (original and adaptation), direction, cinematography, music, male and female leading roles, and male and female supporting roles. Also for each year, the author lists the westerns that received Academy Award nominations (and those that won), makes note of the births and deaths of notable actors, directors, producers, composers, cinematographers, authors and other such personalities, and describes the genre’s significant achievements. About the Author: Henryk Hoffmann was born in Poland.

$40.00 – Hopalong Cassidy: On the Page, on the Screen by Francis M. Nevins and Packy Smith - Publisher: Createspace Independent Pub - Publish Date: 04/19/2016 - Clarence E. Mulford spent his creative years, writing a vast saga of interlocking novels and stories, most of them dealing with the Bar-20 ranch and the men who called it home, chief among them a certain Hopalong Cassidy. Eventually Mulford's works became the nominal source of 66 Hollywood films, made between 1935 and 1948, and a 52-episode TV series (1952-54), all starring William Boyd as a character with the same name but very different from Mulford's.Hopalong Cassidy: On the Page, On the Screen covers each of Mulford's books and each of the Cassidy theatrical films in full detail. A comprehensive index enables readers interested in almost anyone or anything linked to the books or films-including eventual stars like Robert Mitchum, George Reeves, Jan Clayton and Barbara Britton—to find the relevant material instantly.It began in the waking dreams of a young civil servant in Brooklyn who spent evenings, weekends and vacations putting into words an old West he had imagined but never seen. Story by story, novel by novel he created a vast canvas centering around a Texas ranch he called the Bar-20 and the men who made it the focus of their loyalty, chief among them a red-headed liquor-swilling young puncher with a noticeable limp, Hopalong Cassidy. Clarence E. Mulford (1883-1956) was one of the most remarkable Western writers America has produced. His fictional universe is an immense saga, written over a third of a century, in which Cassidy and the other main characters go adventuring, fall in love, marry and have children, grow old and eventually take part in the adventures of the next generation. Mulford's life and world are explored in detail in the first several chapters of this book. In 1935, the now prosperous author signed the contracts that brought his world and characters to America's movie theaters-or at least so he hoped. But, except for a handful of character and place names, the 66 Hopalong Cassidy movies, made between 1935 and 1948, starring William Boyd as Cassidy, turned out to have almost nothing in common with Mulford's fiction. Those films captivated audiences on their first release. The finest of them were hailed by Western lovers as classics of the genre and, restored for satellite and DVD, continue to excite viewers today. This book covers all 66 Cassidy movies in depth. The final chapter recounts what happened in the late 1940s and early 1950s when Hoppymania swept the country as the films migrated to the infant medium of television, generating new celebrity and a huge fortune for William Boyd and quite a bit of money for Mulford too. With a comprehensive checklist of Mulford's writings and a complete filmography providing cast and credits for every Cassidy movie and every episode of the later TV series, Hopalong Cassidy: On the Page, On the Screen is the definitive book on a fascinating subject.

$26.00 – I Am Mister Ed...Allan Rocky Lane Revealed (2014) by Linda Alexander - Allan Lane has been a mystery almost as long as he's been seen on screen. Some know him as the never officially recognized voice of TV's famous talking horse, Mister Ed. Others remember him as Red Ryder, the comic book Western hero come-to-life at the Saturday afternoon matinee. And even more remember him as Rocky Lane, yet another Western good guy, and a name which became synonymous with his own. Less well-known is that Allan Lane also had an earlier movie career, before he became a fast-riding cowboy. He began in films in 1929, often playing suave and debonair gentlemen that women could not resist. Over the years he worked with such leading ladies as Barbara Stanwyck, Loretta Young, and Joan Fontaine. Then there was Allan Lane the businessman. At a young age he became something of a vagabond, moving from place-to-place, often living on his own in a boarding house. This was how he got his education, and ultimately made his way in the world. Allan Lane owned his own successful photography agency when he was only twenty-four. Years later, when his Hollywood career was fading, he would return to what he knew best...his business background. In I Am Mister Ed... Allan "Rocky" Lane Revealed, Linda Alexander finally exposes the full scope of this enigmatic man and his complicated life.

$40.00 – Maureen O'Sullivan: \"No Average Jane\" by David A. Fury (2006) David A.Fury has presented his reader with an interesting book on the life and career of film and theater actress Maureen O'Sullivan whose career spanned decades starting from the Golden Age of Film. As an admirer but not exactly a full blown fan, this book bordered on autobiography because Fury appears to have had full access to O'Sullivan during her life and interviewed her extensively. My overall sense was that this book merged the boundary between fact and intimacy without getting tawdry or tacky. This book spoke for O'Sullivan as well as she might have done for herself if she had sat down with paper and pen or laptop. From a somewhat difficult childhood, a plunge in Hollywood swimming with Weismuller as his frequent Jane, and numerous roles that saw her either starring in some roles or supporting folks like Lionel Barrymore, Norma Shearer, or ensemble casts, O'Sullivan held her own. This carried her forward as she relocated to New York after dealing with the death of her son Michael in an airplane crash and separating from her first husband director John Farrow who was sinking deeper into alcoholism. While Maureen avoids too much detail in the telling of her personal story, she provides a well defined framework for her actions which tie into her performing career. I walked away with the sense that while she appeared publicly as a delicate flower, like many actors she had a strong personal identity and a sense of purpose as well as a spine of steel. Her performing career is reviewed in detail and is augmented by O'Sullivan's recollections which are interesting as well as entertaining. These jogged my memory and made me realize just how prolific and diverse her career was at it took her from the fluffiness as the young ill-fated wife in David Copperfield to the noir thriller The Big Clock. Ironically one of my favorite was a medium sized role in Devil Doll, one of MGM's nods to the horror genre which still holds up nearly 80 years later. O'Sullivan managed to anchor the story to reality. For fans of O'Sullivan or movies, this book is a treat. It is well researched, well written, and has the bonus of first person observations from its subject. – Supplier: Artists Press B&T - 450 pages, 9.25 H x 1.50 D x 6.25 W inches 2.25 lbs.

Their escapades eventually lead them to California’s celebrated Corriganville Movie Ranch—the Universal Studios Tour of its day. Here is where The Kid quickly learns the ropes by testing both his love and his courage. Acting out famous historical gunfights for the throngs of paying tourists brings The Kid closer to his dreams—and to death.

$55.00 – Savages and Saints: The Changing Image of American Indians in Westerns by Bob Herzberg - 84 photos, bibliography, index, 318 pages, (7 x 10) [2008 McFarland] The history of American Indians on screen can be compared to a light shining through a prism. We may have seen bits and pieces of the genuine culture portrayed, but rarely did we see a satisfying and informative whole picture. Savages and Saints deals with the changing image of the American Indian in the Western film genre, contrasting the fictionalized images of native Americans portrayed in classic films against the historical reality of life on the American frontier. The book tells the stories of frontier warriors, Indian and white, revealing how their stories were often drastically altered on screen according to the times the films were made, the stars involved in the film’s production, and the social/political beliefs of the filmmakers. Studio correspondence, letters from government files, and passages from western novels adapted for the screen are used to illustrate the various points. About the Author: Writer, actor and comedian Bob Herzberg is the author of scholarly books and western novels. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

$49.95 – Short-Lived Television Series, 1948–1978: Thirty Years of More Than 1,000 Flops by Wesley Hyatt - 52 photos, appendix, bibliography, index, 328 pages, Pub lished by McFarland (7 x 10) 2003 - Do you remember the 1959 game show where ABC cancelled a tape featuring a female impersonator (Across the Board)? Ever heard of Snip, the 1976 sitcom starring David Brenner that NBC canned just before it debuted? Almost everyone who has worked on a successful television series has also been on one that flopped. Even during the first thirty years of broadcasting, when NBC, CBS, and ABC were the only networks and not quite so quick to cancel unsuccessful programs, hundreds of shows lasted less than one year. This work tells the stories of those ill-fated series that were cancelled within one year after their premieres. The entries are arranged chronologically from the 1948-1949 through the 1977-1978 seasons, and provide brief descriptions of the shows along with such facts as the type of program each series was; its times, dates, and network; its competition on other networks; and the names of the cast, producer, director and writer. The book also includes information from more than 100 interviews with actors, writers, directors, and producers who worked on the short-lived television series. About the Author: Wesley Hyatt, a senior writer with MMI Public Relations, has also served as a television historian and consultant for several media sources. He lives in Durham, North Carolina.
