Hugh O'Brian, best-known for portraying legendary lawman Wyatt Earp, talks about his acting career as well as HOBY, his successful youth leardership project, in this special episode. O’Brian’s movies include such popular releases as The Shootist, Ten Little Indians, Come Fly with Me, and Twins. With the help of his lovely wife, Virginia, he’s also written a memoir titled Hugh O’Brian, or What’s Left of Him -- just in time to celebrate his 90th birthday on April 19! One of the few remaining classic Western stars, O'Brian has amazing stories of an era in entertainment that there soon will be too few who can share in first person. Friends, family and fans have been encouraging Hugh to finish his autobiography for several years.  The book chronicles many never before published stories about Marilyn Monroe, the Marine Corps, living at the House of Seven Garbos, meeting Albert Schweitzer, and being shot between the eyes on the set of The Shootist because the director wanted a film shot without interruption, which wouldn’t allow for the use of a stuntman. O’Brian’s impressive showbiz resume includes 7 Broadway shows, 33 films and 450 television shows. He has a well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a Golden Globe Award.   

Virginia O’Brian, film historian James Colt Harrison, and Classic Movie Guide founder Diana Saenger will also participate in this celebration of Hugh O’Brian’s upcoming 90th birthday. Happy Birthday, Hugh!
