In the early 1960s you would have been hard pressed to find an entertainer who was hotter, more popular, and more in demand than singer and actress and Margaret.
The young star, born in Sweden as Ann Margaret Olsen, captivated everyone’s attention. With her combination of Scandinavian beauty, a youthful s*******, at a sort of undercurrent of danger, it’s easy to see why Ann-Margret quickly became so popular.
Many said she appeared to be a female Elvis. And, by 1964, she was starring alongside the real Elvis Presley in the movie Viva Las vegas- and famously having an affair with the king.
But her star didn’t fade. Well into the 60s, ’70s, ’80s, and beyond, and Margaret has remained a popular favorite.
In 1994 she was prompted to write her autobiography. And that’s what I had a chance to meet her.
So here now, a candid and emotional interview with Ann-Margret, from 1994:
And Margaret will be 82 next month. Her most recent screen appearance was in 2017.
Her husband, Roger Smith, died in 2017 after 50 years of marriage.
For over five decades actor Michael York has been a fixture in Britain and in the US, in film and on television.
Beginning in the late 1960s, York starred in a number of huge hit movies, including Romeo and Juliet, Cabaret, and Logan’s Run. Younger fans may even remember him best from his role in the Austin Powers series.
In 1992. Michael York published an autobiography, and that’s when I had the chance to talk with him.
So here now, from 1992, Michael York.
Michael York is 80 now. He and Pat live in Minnesota.
Back in the fall of 1993, when I had scheduled an interview with actor. William shatner, it was fascinating to watch the generational divide in the office where I worked.
When he walked in, the oldest among us could be heard saying Captain Kirk is here!
The next oldest we’re saying TJ hooker is here!
And the youngest, at that point in the early ’90s, we’re saying the guy from rescue 911 is here!
William Shatner has undoubtedly been one of the most durable actors of our time, appealing across generations and across genres.
But to most, he is still most commonly remembered as captain James t. Kirk of The starship Enterprise. You remember, that 5-year mission to explore new worlds, that ended up only lasting three seasons?
By the time Shatner published his book Star Trek Memories in the Fall of 93. He had learned that not all of his Star Trek co-stars regarded him so very highly after all. As you’re about to hear.
