Happy Birthday, Dobie Gillis

Dwayne Hickman is 72 today. I hope he has a great one.

Now that is depressing. I can still sing the theme song. Don't even tell me how old Thalia Menninger is. And Maynard G. Krebs is gone altogether.

That, the Garner Maverick, Have Gun and the hour long Naked City were my Fifties faves. What great memories I have of them. (I also liked the weirdest show Warner Brothers ever put on TV--John Dehner playing a kind of Snidely Whiplash character and Roger Moore as the wry hero in The Alaskans.) At my age I salute all those who've given me pleasure in this vale of tears and all those above are at or near the top.

Garner had two great, great shows. Jim Rockford has to be the greatest TV detective and Maverick, the greatest cowboy.
