9781630760526: Dashing, Daring, and Debonair: TV's Top Male Icons from the 50s, 60s, and 70s

Be they actors, comedians, singers, dancers, or talk show hosts and personalities, everyone from George Burns and Milton Berle to Jack Benny and Jackie Gleason to Sid Caesar and Caesar Romero ignited their own particular brand of “man-erisms.” In the process, they each inspired their audience to cheer them on—whatever their guise. This book, with a foreword by Adam "Batman" West, will explore and celebrate the men who invented manliness and became stars in the process. It also profiles such teenage heartthrobs as Leave it to Beaver's Tony Dow and The Partridge Family's David Cassidy, stars who left an indelible impression on a generation of young girls.

About the Author:

Writer/producer/actor Herbie J Pilato is the author of several books on media and celebrities, including The Essential Elizabeth Montgomery, The Bionic Book, and most notably, Twitch Upon a Star: The Bewitched Life and Career of Elizabeth Montgomery. He has served as a consultant on "Bewitched: The E! True Hollywood Story," the Elizabeth Montgomery episode of A&E's Biography, Bravo's hit five-part series The 100 Greatest TV Characters, and countless other productions. He lives in Burbank, California.

Review:

"Is there anything Herbie J Pilato doesn't know about pop culture, most specifically classic television? I love all his books and he's got the creds to write them because he personally knows many of these icons and can ferret out all the juicy, little known, behind-the-scenes anecdotes that make these tomes such gems. Great reading!"
(Kathryn Leigh Scott, publisher, author, actress: Dark Shadows)

“Herbie J Pilato gives a true voice to classic television in the same way historians give voice to classical music, poets, writers, filmmakers and creators of masterpieces in museums all over the world. Herbie J places television history as defining America where it needs to be...side by side with the greatest artists of all time.”
(Pierre Patrick, talent agent, author of The Doris Day Companion)

“What an informative tribute to the male icons whose talents helped shape classic television! The gang's all here: everyone from Desi Arnaz and Rod Serling to James Garner and William Shatner, from Ricky Nelson and Donny Osmond to Johnny Carson and Andy Griffith - and literally dozens of others! Herbie J, take a bow!”
(Thomas J. Watson, author, producer, TV historian, and former assistant to Lucille Ball)

“There is no one more knowledgeable or more passionate than Herbie J Pilato where classic TV is concerned. Dashing, Daring, and Debonair not only demonstrates his vast expertise in this realm, but also gives the reader a fresh perspective on the many pop culture icons profiled in this book. Great scholarship married to great fun!"
(Bill Royce, Emmy Award-winning co-producer of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno)

"Herbie J Pilato has given us an encyclopedia of television’s iconic male stars. What a grand and impressive trip down memory lane!”
(Gloria Loring, singer/songwriter, actress, author)

"Author Herbie J. Pilato takes us back in time yet again to remind us of the tremendous impact our favorite TV male icons have had on us as individuals as well as on society at large. From Desi to Van Dyke to Gleason to Serling, they are all here - each having fulfilled his own special Dashing, Daring, or Debonair niche in classic television history. Thumbs up to Herbie for another great read!"
(David Van Deusen, publisher of The Walnut Times, the Dick Van Dyke Show newsletter)

"No one is more passionate or informed about classic television than Herbie J Pilato. Here, Herbie J is at it again with a truly exhaustive survey of the most influential male stars...and producers...over three decades, from the sublime (Rod Serling) to the ridiculous (Red Skelton), and a slew of other icons in between. Dashing, Daring, and Debonair is comprehensive, enlightening, and a blast to read."
(David Bushman, Curator, Television, The Paley Center for Media)

“My friend Herbie J Pilato’s own personal panache shines like a diamond stick-pin in his new book Dashing, Daring and Debonair - a perfectly fun and extremely addictive read.”
(Cindy Williams, actress)

“I first went to the section about my Dad, and loved it. Then I jumped to Gene Roddenberry because I’m a Trekker – and then on to Christopher Knight because we’re friends on Facebook. After that...I was just plain hooked. I read it from cover to cover, enjoying every minute of this enlightening, entertaining, and revealing look at television’s glory days.”
(Chris York, son of Dick York from Bewitched)

“Herbie J Pilato writes about classic television not only with a deep knowledge of his subject, but with an equally deep love and respect. If you know nothing about television and its greatest stars, read one of Herbie J's books. If you think you know everything about television and its greatest stars, read one of Herbie J's books. Either way, you will learn something new, fun, and fascinating. Dashing, Daring, and Debonair is a brilliant addition to his canon. It belongs in your collection!” (Melissa Byers, Digital Content Producer, Television Academy)
