LB: Speaking of Herbie J Pilato’s New Book

Herbie-J-autographed-book-smallLook what just came via snail mail! Herbie J’s Dashing, Daring, and Debonair.

I’m digging the autograph as well as the book.

Favorite chapters so far – those about not the actor-stars but the writer-creators of the era, such as:

  • Rod Serling
  • Gene Roddenberry
  • Norman Lear

Between us, though, the big Do Not Miss chapters include those on:

  • Clayton Moore
  • George Reeves
  • David Carridine

Then again, I always enjoy reading about Bobby Sherman and Desi Arnaz, Jr.

Bobby starred in the first series I ever wrote for, Here Come the Brides, and Desi in the first one I ever Executive Produced, the classic Automan.

With 70 chapters, each one featuring a different dashing, daring, and debonair male star of the ’50s, 60s, and ’70s, I’m pretty damn sure everyone’s bound to find a favorite…or ten.

Thanks for thinking of me, Herbie!
