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.
I don’t know about you but every Christmas season one of the movies I have to watch is it’s a Wonderful Life.
The story of George Bailey, the small town building and loan manager who’s given the chance to see what the world would be like without him is a Christmas classic.
Almost 30 years ago now two guys came out with a book of trivia about the movie. One of them was Jimmy Hawkins, who played Tommy in the movie. The other was actor. Paul Petersen.
Now you may wonder what Paul Petersen has to do with. It’s a Wonderful LLfe. Well. Paul Petersen was one of the stars of the ’60s sitcom The Donna Reed show — and of course Donna Reed was Jimmy Stewart’s co-star in. It’s a Wonderful Life.
And unless you have a master’s degree in, it’s a Wonderful Life. I can promise you will learn something about that movie in the next few minutes.
