One of Hollywood’s most glamorous leading ladies, Ruta Lee is known throughout the world for her roles in such films as Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Witness for the Prosecution, Funny Face, and Sergeants Three, as well as her work in such classic TV series as The Fugitive, The Twilight Zone, The Lucy Show, The Andy Griffith Show, Perry Mason, and Gunsmoke, plus her appearances on such popular game shows as Hollywood Squares, The Match Game and High Rollers (the latter of which she co-hosted for two years along with Alex Trebek). What you may not know is that Ruta is also one of the entertainment industry’s most active civic contributors, having devoted most of her life to such charitable organizations as The Thalians, the very first Hollywood charity dedicated to the promotion of good mental health. We’ll ask Ruta how she first became involved with The Thalians, plus she’ll share some memories of her work with the likes of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, David Janssen, Debbie Reynolds and James Arness. Ruta Lee will join us in our second hour.

The Thalians will be honoring Smokey Robinson at the House of Blues Sunset Strip on Saturday, April 26 as part of a benefit concert that will support the mental health and wellness services provided to America’s wounded warriors and their families served by UCLA Operation Mend. If you can’t make the event, you can still support the efforts of The Thalians and Operation Mend by making a donation at Thalians.org.

Also joining us in our second hour will be Mary Ann Anderson, author of Ida Lupino: Beyond the Camera and The Making of The Hitch-Hiker Illustrated. Mary was recently honored at the American Cinematheque in Los Angeles as part of the Noir City Film Festival’s celebration of the 60thanniversary of The Hitch-Hiker, the classic 1953 thriller directed by Ida Lupino, and the first American example of film noir that was directed by a woman.

Our guest during the first hour of this week’s program will be Michael Trinklein, the sole writer and co-producer of Pioneers of Television, the popular oral history of TV that begins its fourth season on PBS on Tuesday, April 15. This season of Pioneers of Television will include a look at the makingof Seinfeld, Roseanne, Home Improvement, The Bob Newhart Show, The Cosby Show and Everybody Loves Raymond, while also exploring the appeal of medical dramas, as well as the inroads made by African-American actors, Asian-American actors and Hispanic-American actors on television over the past five decades.
