Our first hour will include an encore presentation of our April 2012 conversation with singer/actress Linda Lawson. Linda began her career in the 1950s as a nightclub performer at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. That led to a recording session with Henry Mancini, who later introduced her to Blake Edwards, who later cast Linda in an episode of Peter Gunn, which opened the door to an acting career that included appearances on such shows as Adventures in Paradise, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Perry Mason, Sea Hunt, Adventures in Paradise, Maverick, 77 Sunset Strip, The Virginian, and It Takes a Thief, as well as such feature motion pictures as Night Tide with Dennis Hopper, and Sometimes a Great Notion with Paul Newman, Henry Fonda and Richard Jaeckel.

Our second hour will include a replay of our January 2016 conversation with James Bigwood, writer, producer and co-author of Not Just Batman’s Butler: The Autobiography of Alan Napier, a combination memoir, biography and filmography of Alan Napier, the tall, distinguished British actor best known for playing Alfred the butler on the Batman television series (ABC, 1966-1968). Though Batman brought Napier fame (and some fortune), it also overshadowed a lifetime of work on stage, film and television that saw him work with the likes of Marlon Brando, Ingrid Bergman, John Wayne, Laurence Olivier, George Bernard Shaw, Paul Muni, Sean Connery, Alfred Hitchcock, James Whale, Fritz Lang, Otto Preminger, Orson Welles and John Houseman.

Largely based on a manuscript that Napier wrote himself in 1969, Not Just Batman’s Butler not only explores the actor’s life and career before, during and after Batman, but shows how Napier led a very full and somewhat bohemian life outside of show business. Not Just Batman’s Butler: The Autobiography of Alan Napier is available through McFarlandPub.com. You can also order it by calling (800) 253-2187.
