Paul Green will return this week as we revisit the life and career of Pete Duel, the actor whom most of us think of as Hannibal Heyes, the amiable outlaw that he played so well on the short-lived but long remembered Western series Alias Smith and Jones. Though Duel seemed easygoing on screen, he led an unpredictable and often tumultuous life off screen―a fact, sadly, that is perhaps best characterized by his highly publicized suicide on Dec. 30, 1971, at the height of his television celebrity.


Though the story of Pete Duel remains one of the great Hollywood tragedies, it’s also a reminder that the true value of a person rests not in the manner of their death, but in the way they lived their life and continue to touch the lives of the people of who knew them. That’s really the focus of Paul’s book, Pete Duel: A Biography. Paul has recently updated his book with a new foreword by actress Belinda Montgomery, plus even more insight about the life of Duel. Much of the new information in the revised second edition of Pete Duel: A Biography comes from the people who knew him best: his family and friends. But it also gives voice to the many fans who have kept the memory of Pete Duel alive, more than four decades after his death. Paul Green will join us in our second hour.

This week’s program will also commemorate the thirty-fifth anniversary of the death of John Lennon. We’ll devote part of This Week in TV History to that subject, plus we’ll play part of our December 2010 conversation with Keith Eliot Greenberg, author of Dec. 8, 1980: The Day John Lennon Died.
