TV Confidentia Archives: Week of Feb. 20-26, 2013

Original Airdate: Week of Feb. 20-26, 2013
First hour: Ed welcomes author, journalist and screenwriter Marvin J. Wolf. Marv’s books include Fallen Angels: Chronicles of L.A. Crime and Mystery, a behind-the-scenes look at 39 famous crimes that not only took place in Los Angeles, but reveal an altogether different side of the City of Angels than what you may have seen on television or in the movies. Among the cases discussed in the book: Caryl Chessman, the Red Light Bandit; the precedent-setting rape trial of movie mogul Alexander Pantages; the mysterious death of actor Nick Adams; the tragic murder of actor Sal Mineo; and the gruesome death of Elizabeth Short, the woman known as The Black Dahlia. Marv co-wrote Fallen Angels along with noted criminal defense attorney Katherine Mader; the book was recently re-released both in paperback and as an e-Book. The e-Book edition of Fallen Angels includes links to the various crime scenes detailed in each story, so that readers can travel directly to the locations themselves, virtually via Google Maps and Google Earth. 

Second hour: An encore presentation of our November 2010 conversation with novelist Darlene Quinn, author of Twisted Webs, Webs of Power, Webs of Fate and the forthcoming Unpredictable Webs, and the co-author, along with the late Buddy Ebsen, of Sizzling Cold Case: The Legend of Lori London, an original novel featuring Barnaby Jones. Plus: Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen remember the pilot for The Andy Griffith Show, which originally aired This Week in TV History as an episode of Make Room for Daddy.
