One of the finest actors of our time! We lost him way too young. The Wild Wild West certainly would not have been the same without him, and he's done an excellent job in these two CBS RMT shows. Now if anyone knows where I can find his radio show "The Ross Martin Show" that would be wonderful! :)


Not only would I,also,love to find any episodes of"The Ross Martin Show"radio show from the very early-40's..but i'd also love to find any of his late-1940's to very early-1950's live televison shows(1948-1953)-his appearances on "Lights Out"(his episodes from 1949 to 1951),and his featured-starring role on"The Storm"-which was the very first debut episode of Westinghouse-Studio One live-television program,from 1948,and his two 1953 "Suspense"live-television episodes..and lots of other live-television anthologies that he did in the very early-1950s. Ross Martin's very impressive acting role that he did in one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes-called "The Four Of Us Are Dying"(1960) is probably the closest you'll get to seeing just exactly the kind of 1949 to 1952 live-television performances he did-and as close as you'll get to just the kind of live-television anthology sgows he acted in-back in the late-40s &early-50s..since most all the old Twilight Zone anthology episodes all had a very early-50s live television look and feel-which is why that sgow will never get old! Now all I have to do is find as many of those Ross Martin late-40s and early-50s live television shows he was in ---hopefully all on DVD! Wish me luck!!! Fred
