On this week's VLH: The Gals talk to Sandra Grabman, author of Spotlights & Shadows: The Albert Salmi !

Biography of Albert Salmi As a character actor, his face was a lot more familiar to moviegoers and TV watchers than his name was. His first wife was actress Peggy Ann Garner, so his biography then led to one about her, too.

Spotlights & Shadows, the biography of character actor Albert Salmi. The man’s list of credits is long: television series Daniel Boone and Petrocelli, motion pictures including The Brothers Karamazov, The Unforgiven, Caddyshack, Escape From Planet of the Apes, Brubaker, Dragonslayer, and Breaking In, guest-starring appearances on many of the most popular shows of the day, such as Bonanza, The Virginian, Lost in Space, The Twilight Zone, and Route 66, and several mini-series. Bad guy, good guy, stern authority figure -- Salmi could play them all and play them well.
